I entered the Major section which should have been 130-165 ECF, but it got combined with the Open which basically meant it was 130+.  Pretty daunting for a 134!  I'd planned to take a bye on the Friday night and guarantee myself the half a point, but I was pressed into going for the win.  I may not have mentioned it before, but I really dislike the Friday game.  If I don't win, then the best I can do is no better than just taking the bye.  Add to this that I was playing someone I've played twice before and managing one loss and one draw (http://bit.ly/aV7Z4L - the first game) and it wasn't shaping up nicely for me:

 

Yay me!  A smattering of other people won, but the main point was all three players rated over 200 had won as well...
