Bobby Fisher Memorial, Round 3
Round 3 was definitely the wildest game of the day. Despite gaining an advantage pretty early, I ended up burning a LOT of time calculating and double checking tactics. While my opponent made some early positional mistakes, he defended my attack very well and forced my play to be fairly precise. Like just about every tactical game I play, Toga was very critical of the play on both sides. Overall though...I'm pleased with this one.
According to the rating estimator...I missed 1800 by 3 points (1797). Oh well, if I play like this in May, I'll be breaking 1800 for the 2nd time in my career at the Enchilada!
