I know that I am posting this late, but it would definitely be such a shame if I didn't post the games that I played in this tournament. The 11th Annual Turkey Bowl, run by the Boca Raton Chess Club from November 16 to November 18, 2012, is the tournament in which I clinched first place in the U1500 section. I won $402 along with a trophy. I played pretty well in my first four games, all of which I managed to win. It was only the last game that wasn't too great and that I didn't win, but all I needed was a draw to clinch first place in my section. The tournament results along with some copies of the games played in the Open section can be seen here. Some of the players in the Open section included GM Julio Becerra and FMs Eric Rodriguez and Gheorghe-Dan Taras.
