With nothing else going on locally Gary Maltzman hosted another edition of his action tournament series at the Morrisville Outlet Mall today. This time, instead of his normal two-round format, we added a third round of play so that it would be more like a regular event. I was the third rated player in the open section and scored two out of three points to tie for second.

I will likely blog that game later, especially given its picturesque finish, but I want to take some time and figure out what I did wrong in the opening of that game first.
