Turkey Shoot 2017
Over this past weekend (November 18-19), I played in the 5-round Turkey Shoot chess tournament in San Antonio. While certainly disorganized at times (the rounds on Saturday were delayed by an hour) and unusual (the tournament was played inside a building that was part of a hospital complex), it ended up being a rather fun tournament with what I thought were some exciting games.
Round 1 of the tournament started out at a time control of G60 + 5s while the rest were G90 + 30s. This game was likely my easiest of the entire tournament as I felt I easily gained the initiative after a suspect opening by my opponent.
Round 4 was probably my most entertaining and most interesting game with there being dynamic possibilities for both sides at some point.
