Warning: long post with multiple games

So over the Easter weekend I played in the West of England Championships and (incredibly) managed to finish =1st with a tpr of 2370 (i'm converting all ECF grades into elo ratings here). This warranted a posting of my games, i think.

Round 1:


Round 2:

Round 3:
This was the only game from the tournament that I wasn't entirely happy with.

Round 4:
My opponent this round was the second seed in the tournament and before this game I had only scored a single draw from 6 games.

Round 5:

Round 6:

Round 7:
At this point I was lying =1st on 4.5/6 with one round to spare. There were two others on 4.5, and I was playing one of them in the final round. My 1st and 4th opponents were both on 4.

So there you have it. One very good tournament, a ton of rating points, a qualification to the British Championships (I think) and a nice amount of money.
