Firstly and most importantly, you’re a kid so have fun and enjoy yourself. Don’t worry about openings or all of that. Focus on making good moves, not blundering material, and DON’T PLAY TO FAST. A lot of kids play too fast and that can cost you the game. Relax, get a good night’s sleep, so some tactics, etc.

The main thing for a tourney is to sleep very well the night before. If you usually get 6 hours, go in for 8. Eat well too and not too heavy. Play the openings you are most comfortable with, and do everything to make yourself feel top of your game. There really is not more to it than that.

Being a kid yourself and preparing for a chess torment is a very pressuring thing. I have firsthand experience and I can tell you, just be cool, and RELAX

Go 9-10 hours. 8 is not good enough for a kid.

When I initially read this post and the quoted text above, I had supposed that you are requesting for the OP to invest a bountiful 6 - 10 hours. I was somewhat confounded for approximately fifteen seconds, before reading the topic sentence of the quote on quote matter.

Well, first and foremost, I discern  that you were born in the year 2009, placing you in the age group of 9 or 10. (I assume that you have not been rapidly accelerating at a fractional speed of light, which would enable you to be experiencing time more slowly. Or any other relativity case such as being 1 metre away from the event horizon of a black hole).

With all that said, your Elo rating and particularly your Puzzle Rush are quite remarkable for that age. If you have not already, formulate an account on chess tempo.com and practise the tactics offered there regularly. Standard will boost your prowess hastily, but ensure to assimilate the motifs being employed to receive better progress. This, as I have found, is the most ready way for me to gain tactical (and perhaps strategic) aptitude. Of course, don't dwell excessively on it as it will deteriorate your self esteem quite austerely; ensure that you play chess for enjoyment and not merely an intellectual jousting. Some may beg to differ with that last aspect there, and I am perfectly fine with that.

Addendum: Yes, that very last aspect after the conjunction may instigate some uproar.

Stop playing so much blitz. I can see all those fast games in your archive. Blitz is detrimental for your chess development, and later in your tournament, almost instinctively, you will play quickly and without much thought. This will be due to the excess amount of blitz that have been damaging your habits in chess. Learn to take time and think on your moves.
