This weekend I went to my second OTB chess tournament.  Playing live is a lot more difficult for me.  I get nervous and tired and uncomfortable.  Also in the reserved section you might play children.  I love children, but losing to a 10 year old kid takes getting used to.  Here is a game I am particularly ashamed of.  I played (what I think) was a great combo with Bxh7+.  Before that I was down a bishop for a pawn.  Then the tables turned and I was definitely on the road to victory.  Then I made the biggest blunder of all time and blew it.
