This year's Sudbury Championship was special for me.  Of course, it's special to win the local championship.  It's also a neat feeling to do it 3 times in a row... but most special was the opportunity to play in a local championship that featured far more talent than usual for Sudbury events.

One thing I found very impressive was the amount of talent and general playing strength demonstrated at this tournament.  I'll start with the demonstration I found most frustrating...


This game taught me a few things.  First off, anybody can have a good day.  It seems to me that the trick to having a good day is to be opportunistic.  It also came as a harsh reminder that I can't play with a sense of entitlement.  I didn't have enough to win the game and I shouldn't have acted like I deserved it.

In part two I'll hunt down one of the biggest upsets of the tournament. Stay tuned.
