Rapid Tournament Tomorrow!

Rapid Tournament Tomorrow!

Nov 27, 2009, 3:16 PM 0

So tomorrow is my first tournament in a while. It's in Asten, a small village close to my city. 20 minutes per game, 3 strenght categories: A category for players with a rating of 1800+, B category for players with ratings between 1600 and 1800 and C, the category in which I'm playing, ratings up to 1600.

I won't lie to you, I'm kinda nervous, simply because it's been so long since I last played a tournament, and when I did I came with other players from our chess club or school, now it's just me. About 70 players will play in the tournament tomorrow. 2 GM's play in the A category, first prize in that category is 200 euro. Looking forward to seeing those GM's play.

It's friday evening now, playing some games here on chess.com, 20 minutes per play, having a real chess board next to my laptop and playing on that to get accustomed to 3d/real chess again... Played 2 matches against a 1058 rated player and a 1550 rated player, won both. Gave me some confidence for tomorrow... just hope that I won't get killed out there :-)

I'll let you guys know how it will go tomorrow.
