  • Tournament #6 : Phi Kappa Blanca, 4/7/90
  • NCSU Student Union, Raleigh, NC
  • TD:  Robert Singletary
  • Section:  U1400
  • Time Control:  40/90, G/30

 

I'm not sure what happened in round 1.  I have it recorded as a loss in the scorebook I apparently bought between rounds 1 and 2, so round 1 was likely written on a loose sheet of paper and lost.

 

Game #13, Round 1: loss (unknown color/opponent)

 

This is, I think, my only rated game playing the French Defence (albiet by transposition).  I don't have any recolection of ever studying it and may have played it in this game out of curiosity.  I was still trying to find my game at this point and would experiment with various openings and ideas.  I will say that, without the advanced knowledge of this system that I possess today, this game seemed to possess a very natural flow for me.  I wonder if this is an opening I could look into revisiting and picking up again now.  The only thing I didn't do in this game that is built into standard theory was play for the c5 break.  This was also my first rated draw.

 

Game #14, Round 2:



 

Many of the players I faced while in the Under 1400 range were scholastic players.  There's not much to say about some of these games except that I did a good job of taking the steady stream of en prix pieces offered by my opponent...

 

Game #15, Round 3:

 

 

  • Recap: +1 =1 -1
  • Rating: ??? -> ???
  • Total:  +4 =1 -10
  • PKB: +2 =1 -7
