This is my new Blog! It is my favorite blog, because it is my blog!
Alright folks, I have decided to start using this blog feature to track my progress in chess. Feel free to read, feel free to critique, feel free to give words of encouragement. Or don't....really I just wanted a place to store my thoughts, a journal, if you will.
So some background, I have not played much classical chess lately. I played in our club championship in December of 2015, and in the Mid America Open in March of 2016, both with unimpressive results. But I am back at it. In my next post, I will probably discuss my goals, followed by how I plan to get there. For now, here is a game I played.
This is from our club's monthly "Wednesday Knights" tournament. It is a swiss with each round being played on, you guessed it, Wednesday night. In the previous round, I convincingly beat a 700 or so rated player. In this round, I played the highest seed, and took him down!
