Western Kentucky Open Game 1

Apr 2, 2009, 6:54 AM |

So after six or so years of absence, I finally played in an OTB tourney.  The Western Kentucky Open was a small (roughly 30 people) compared to the large scholastic tournies I was used to.  For awhile, I really felt like a fish out of water, but I slowly settled back into pace of OTB. Anyway, here's the first game I played of the tourney:

Not too terribly proud of this game, but I was happy with the fact that I remembered the key moves of the Sicilian and that I was giving a 1600 player a run for his money for a time.  I'll be posting the second game of the tourney here soon, which had a more pleasant result.  Please, if you have any comments or critisms, post them.
