I've been studying openings some, and it's helping. I feel a lot more comfortable in the first few moves. I'm finding ideas and plans more easily, but I'm still taking a long time to move. Rated 1368, I was the lowest rated player in the U1900 section, but I played well and felt good during my games. GM Julio Sadorra was in the 1900+ section (he won). Here are my games, with some comments before I look at the computer analysis.
