Sweet Return

I played Chess pretty well back in elementary school, back in the early 90s. When I graduated 6th grade I transfered to a 7-12th grade school with no chess club. I played some chess in Yahoo! at that time and eventually reached a 1500 rating there. I played my freshmen year of college at Iowa State a little bit including my only USCF Tournament thus far in 2004, I lost both games against 1400+ ranked players leaving my UCSF record at 0-2 :-( . After that I concentrated on finishing college, getting my MBA and startin my career in insurance and I didn't play any chess for about 7 years.

This week I rediscovered chess.com and decided I need to get back into the game. I am incredibly rusty. I lost my first 2 games here with little glory and in my third game I finally had a good game but I blew it at the end. Here's my commentary on that game:


Since then I finally won a game later that same day, I'll post that one later today or tomorrow.
