Went 3.5/4 last Sunday and took home a big cash prize. The games aren't spectacular, but the last two are at least interesting. In particular, I hadn't seen Bird's Defense to the Ruy Lopez before, so figuring out a way through that was a bit of a struggle. Also, I got three whites, which is nice--I never get three whites. The tournament put me at 1668, so I'm in spitting distance of the 1700s
