Inside the Headphones...

This one came up on random the other day on shuffle while I was at the gym and I had to include that here.  This album found it's way into my tournament rotation quite often.

 


 

 

I managed to win 2 of 3 in this one, but not without difficulty.  In round 1, my opponent attempted to oversimplify too early, turning an otherwise won game into a losing endgame.  In round 2, I had a drawable RvR endgame, but I had not yet studied the proper technique for that.  Despite playing 2 unrated opponents, I still gained a few rating points.

 

Round 1, Game #117

 
Round 2, Game #118
 
Round 3, Game #119
