I finally got past 1800.  In a 3 round tournament I got 2nd out of 4 people. 

In the first round I played the highest rated player in the section 


The second round I played a 1700 and was white

Sadly, I don't have my last game, but He held the 2 pawn down knight ending which I couldn't win because my king was on the other side of the board.  The game ended in a draw against the 2025

I got 20$ for getting 2nd, but more importantly my rating went from

1751---->1810! I broke the 1800 barrier!
