My 1st Live Tournament
I finally tried the live tournament feature in Chess.com. I did the 3 min blitz games so I could do it in under an hour... The tournament lasted 7 rounds. I won one game on time forfiet, one game on early resignation (maybe s/he had to leave early?), and one game on checkmate (yeah!). On the other hand I was trounced in 4 other games, mostly on loss of time, one of them though I was getting ripped to shreds. Fun!
All in all, somehow I got 4th place! Maybe a lot of players jump ship, and half the battle is sticking with it. That is true in chess and life... Here is the screen shot of my 4th place. No medal though LOL :-)
