My Games, CINCY TORNADO 2016 EMOTIONAL CHESS
Greetings chess community. Haven't posted a blog in awhile because I haven't played in any USCF rated chess tournaments in over 2 years. Happy to say I have returned. Hope you enjoy veiwing my games from this past tournament.
My first opponent went on to take second place and jumping up 118 rating points from his great performance. He was a pretty tough 1200.
I managed to break him down. Figured my next 3 opponents were going to be even tougher...and they were. Sicilian defense is always tough but shouldn't play it with passive moves.
Next two opponents did their best to try and stop me from taking 1st place and running away with all their cash.
After this last game I watched a few youtube videos on the Bird Opening. This last game was nasty. But I managed to turn my awful position around...
Great tournament up in Cincinnati! The TD up there is great and they have a short order cook set up so you can grab something to eat between rounds. Great food. Tough opponents. Great Tournament! If you guys are in the cincinnati area they play the last Saturday of each month.
