Tin Cup U1750 Day 2
Hi everyone this post will cover the second day of the Tin Cup tournament. If you haven't checked out my first day I suggest you do so by going to.
As stated in my day 1 post, this tournament is a 6 round tournament restricted to those under 1750 Australian Chess Federation rating and the time control was 60 minutes + 10 seconds per move. This blog like my previous Tin Cup blog will have my analysed game and thoughts about the tournament.
I finished day 1 with a score of 2.5/3 and a draw against a >1700 player so I was quite happy with my play.
Day 2: 12th February 2017
The last round was a hard fought game and well played by Daniel Ford. I tried some ideas after losing the exchange. But after he managed to neutralize my ideas and trade off most of the pieces the exchange was just too powerful and I ended up losing on time instead though my position was lost.
I finished the tournament with 4.5/6 and came tied for third though there was two people tied for second so they split the second and third prizes together. I managed to get a three way tie for the U1400 rating group prize so we each took home $55. Overall it was a great tournament and I was Dusan and Sebastian for running the event which went quite smoothly.
That concludes the two posts about the 2017 Tin Cup that I participated in. I hope you enjoyed reading this and having a look at the analysed games. if you have any questions, comments or analysis feel free to share them in the comments below. Thank you for reading.
