Two steps back
Played in a tournament this past weekend. 4 rounds of G55 + 5 in the < 1400 division. Painful outing with a score of 2-2 and a loss of about 30 ratings points. I didn’t sleep well all week and almost didn’t go but decided to caffeine up and go push some pawns. My losses were due to straight up blunders – hung a queen in one game and miscalculated an attack on f7 missing a key response and incredible resource from my opponent. Ended up down material and playing desperate defense hoping for a swindle that didn’t happen.
Here is a look at my best game from the weekend, any feedback or comments are welcome.
