A dream run at Chambly semi-rapid tournament and a game against an IM!

Dec 14, 2013, 11:54 AM |

I was looking forward to this first semi-rapid tournament. I had trained with 10 minute blitz games on chess.com and a few hundred timed tactical puzzles. I also played those 3 games at the 20 min + 10 sec time control with Martin last Monday. Add to this preparation a bit of luck, a very good night of sleep (I went for a 2 hour walk which I think helped me sleep really well), and a little bit more of luck…
