Playing Again

Jul 20, 2008, 5:47 PM |

Well, I'm back playing again. 

I took a break after playing in the 26th OCF North American FIDE Open last September.  I did OK in that tournament, raising my USCF rating to 1572.  I'll try to play more online games this time.  I'll still periodically play OTB tournaments in the area as they come up.  This weekend the the 2008 US Class Championships is going on in Houston, but I didn't want to try to hop right into that.  I also decided not to play in the 2008 US Open which will be in Dallas in a couple of weeks.  I think I might play in the 74th Annual SW Open coming up at the beginning of September.

I've started up 3 games.  I'll probably start a few more.  My intent is to only play a few at a time, and fully analyze those before starting new ones.  So at any given time I'll have a few games going while analyzing one.
