You can find my blog here.  It will explain these games a bit.

 

Overall I'm pretty happy with this one.  I played my Alekhine and I had a couple of nice tactical shots in here.  Pretty satisfying, especially since being away from a tournament in almost 8 months.  Forgive the light annotations, but I've only gone over the game once, recording my thoughts.  Full analysis comes during the second pass.

Game two is me playing against the French.  Although I have good success against this thing I hate playing against it, I always seem to drop a center pawn within the first 10 moves.

Well I didn't drop a pawn against the French but I came damn close, I really have to work this out.

Here is my last game.

A most unimpressive effort.  I hadn't eaten and I had a pounding headache, but I've got to plan better.  Weekend tournaments are as much about mental stamina as chess skillz.  Overall not a bad outing +2 -1 =0.  Not shabby for not having played in a tourney for almost 8 months.
