Houston Chess Festival
Hey guys! This weekend I went to the Houston chess festival in Houston (obviously). I finished with a score of 3.5/5 and my rating went up from 1728 to 1809! I got tied for 6th place.
I will be using the Pre-tournament ratings. If you want to see the post ratings, click HERE
Enough talking, let's get to the games!
In this game, I made a foolish mistake and lost an exchange. But, In my defense...umm...well...um...Evil Ninjas tried to kill me, and I had to save the world from Candy monsters...
This was an easy win, he was slightly better, but blundered a queen for nothing. Maybe he miscalculated
This was a real rat race, and the position was never really clear, but I managed to get a draw.
This was an opposite castled Kings game, so we tried to attack each other, but I beat him in the pawn storm.
In this game, he made a faulty pawn sac, followed by him falling into a trap. From there, it was over.
Overall, I think I did a good job in this tournament, gaining 81 points. If you see any faults in my game, I would be glad to hear them.
