My first rated OTB tournament in 5 years

Jan 6, 2014, 5:10 AM |

I competed in an OTB tournament for the first time after five long years. Out of the 9 rounds, I secured 5.5 points with 5 wins, 1 draw and 3 loses. Time control was 60 mins per player for the entire game plus 30 sec increment from move 1.

All the 9 games were just crazy because I opted to play some very complicated chess. All the games very highly interesting and I will post all the games and share all the fun that I had during those games.

One striking similarity in all the 9 rounds was that the positions were very interesting, and double edged which made both me and also my opponents to spend lots of time and in almost all the games, both me and my opponents were getting to time trouble due to the complicated nature of the positions. In as many as four rounds, my games were the last to finish.

I will post all the games with my own annotations one after the other when I get some time.

Stay tuned to see some wild games.
