First rated tournament (U-1000)

Mar 26, 2017, 8:18 PM |

Good evening everyone!

I finally made the time this weekend to join my first live tournament at one of the local venues. Given the fact that I didn't know what to expect, I decided to join the U-100 group to see what it was all about. I guess I should have anticipated the age of the players (mostly <10 years!), which made me feel VERY out of place. I managed to score a 3.0 out of 4 (T-3) to earn a provisional USCF rating of 1063/4, and thought I'd share my games with you all. Time control was 30 minutes with a 5 second delay.

I hope you enjoyed reading these, and please let me know if you have any questions or comments. Thanks for reading!
