OTB: First Congress day 2

Mar 3, 2014, 12:31 PM |

So entering into the second day of the congress I was hoping to make the grading prize - a cash prize for the highest scoring rated u105 in my section.  The first game was against my highest rated opponent ever, in a long time control game, just eligible for the section at 119, who expressed surprise that an 89 rated player had scored 2/3 so far.




For the last game I think fatigue was again a factor.

Leaving me with 3/5 and a tournament performance of well above my grade, so pretty pleased.  Still don't know if I won the grading prize as I had to leave after my game, but pleased either way with a tournament performance rating above my grade.
