Winter Congress - Saturday

Dec 7, 2009, 8:18 AM |

I was feeling quite good.  I'd beaten the highest grade in the major, and heading into a new day a full half a point ahead of those lazy half point bye players.  Things were looking good.  Then I started playing chess...

So I played a little poorly in the second round, and gave away weaknesses that white was able to take full advantage of.  That and blundering a bishop doesn't help.  Anyway, third round I was paired with someone graded similarly to me and I felt that this would be a simple win.  I was right, if only I had been able to find it.


What a day... Yell
