Bobby Fischer Memorial Round 1

Mar 9, 2013, 11:34 PM |

My opponent for the first round was rated near 1300 but hadn't played a tournament game in 20 years. This being my first tournament, I was unrated. My strategy going in was just to develop as quickly and completely as possible. I figured the more active my pieces the better chances I had. Here's the game.

Not a particularly pretty or exciting game but the first round win was just what I needed. It took a lot of the pressure off.
