The 16th Bangkok Chess Open from the 10th April to the 18th April. It is currently being held at the Dusit Thani Hotel Bangkok. 

 

It was at this Open that I decided to play my first OTB tournament. 

I must say, it's not easy to juggle Family/Work and Chess all at the same time. That being said I must thank my wife for giving me the chance to compete and enjoy an activity that I love.

So how did I fare? 

My first competitive OTB game in over 5 years ended in a defeat.  My opponent, a teen from India showed good skill after I had overlook a simple tactic. I lost a rook for a knight and he was able to convert the material advantage into a win.
