Sunday Slam Open Rapid Tournament
Dec 8, 2013, 10:42 PM 0
So I played the first non-blitz tournament I've played since 2005. I won my first game through a dubious sacrifice that my opponent responded to incorrectly; though I didn't record it. The second two games I lost; though I put up a decent fight in round two I missed the obvious mating threat after the fourth time it was threatened. Round three was an unmitigated disaster; he played a scotch game and I confused the move orders with the first game, leaving me boxed in and my queen trapped. I've put them both here for your pleasure, though I've only annotated the second.
