Show-Me Tournament

Hi everyone.  This past Saturday I played in the Game in 70, 4-round, swiss-paired tournament at the CWE Chess Club.  It was a great day and I'm very happy with my performance.  It was a very tough day too, and my measly 1200ish rating was put up against two 1800s and one 1700.  

Round 1:

Round 2:  Due to the swiss formula, I went from an 1800 to a 700.  He played well though and was a cool kid. 

Round 3:  This was a good game, my big upset for the day.  He did make a mistake though, allowing me to force things to open up, can you find it? 

I made a typo here, I (MC) was black.

Round 4:  Another good game, but in a sequence of exchanges I moved too quickly and made a mistake.  

Very good day and I won first for D Class.  I'm happy.
