Tourny Game at Chess Camp

    In my opinion, you have some promise to become a good player. your USCF rating is higher than the average serious high school player, and you play reasonably well against stronger players. Since my choice of opening is totally different from yours, there isn't much I can say on that. Just don't bring your opponents strong pieces to the center unless you can prepare against them.

    You can improve your opening by not playing ...Nxd4 and ...d6.

    ...Nxd4 is seldom played in the Scotch Game because it allows white to get lead in development with an active queen on d4. 

    ...d6 blocks your dark bishop early.

    Your opponent won with a nice tactic on the d-file which he controlled.  After you lost the exchange, he has a winning endgame. By exchanging your dark bishop, you also helped make his task easier.

    I'm sure you will improve by leaps and bounds.

    9. ..Bg4? loses a tempo to f3, which completes your opponent's chain. But other than that, it was a good game.
