High School Championships G1,2

Jan 17, 2011, 5:49 PM |

Junior year of High School Championships and I was rated 3rd highest as last year, but we now have half the field and more chances of playing top rated.  Before the tournament started the director considered just to do a 5 round G45/5 round robin, but the idea was thrown out since there was a k-8 going on at the same time.  I played as board 3 the first round and played against an unrated player.


Second game was against a 1200 and on board 2.  The top 2 players, were playing each other in the second game.  I was white and I started off with my favorite gambit.
