A quick side note.  I have been getting some feedback on these blog posts when I go out to tournaments.  We're about to go into a loooooooong stretch of nothing but Phi Kappa Blanca tournaments, almost 2 years worth, and I would like some ideas, your own stories (for those who attended some of these tournaments) or questions about the series to help keep things interesting.  Basically, I'm still in college (and broke for the most part) at this point and Robert has lost his contacts at UNC, so he could no longer continue the Ram series.  But yea, until I got out of school and started working, these $8 entry fee one day tournaments were my only option.  Anyway, I'll try and keep things interesting with music cuts and whatever else I can come up with.

I did not play well in this tournament...expecially in round 2 where I got miniatured in a Yugoslav Sicilian Dragon.

 Round 1, Game #140

Round 2, Game #141
Round 3, Game #142
