Heart of Tennessee Open 2009

Oct 18, 2009, 1:02 PM |

This was my first tournament in over four years.  Hosted by the Rutherford County Chess Club.  I hadn't prepared for competitive play, and found the experience to be wonderful, frustrating, and delightfully exhausting.  I finished 2-2-1.  I will exclude the first game from this post as the win was too easy and not very educational.


This last one was a heartbreaker for me - A win would have let me tie for 1st place in Class D.  A tactical mistake cost me this win.
