Have You Won A Chess Tournament?

I haven’t, not yet anyways. But I strive to win! Have you won a chess tournament?

I’ve only won 2 OTB tournaments in my life. Once in high school when I was a beginner USCF 1000 I won all 5 games, and the one I am more proud of was in 2014 when I spent 6 months studying and I won 4.5 out of 5 when I was rated 1600s in an under 1800 tournament. I got my rating to 1720 before they kicked me back to the 1600s. I just got my first shot of the vaccine and I’m looking forward to going back to OTB soon because online is good for now but my best focus is a real board in a quiet room with no talking allowed.

I played my first and won! You even get a medal so that was really cool even for a <1199 rapid tournament.  

What made it sweeter was my final win was against a trash talking sand bagger rated at 1500 blitz.

Yes, but there's no pride in that accomplishment . Only three players!

Dozens of club events.  My wife repurposed my trophies for the school club that she ran so now my son has more chess trophies in the house than I do.

My first USCF touirnament was the US Open in Omaha in 1959  Was not strong enough to win that. GM Bisguier won that. [RIP]

My 2nd USCF tournament was In Peoria Illinois. The top 3 players were Class A so I was able to win that.

I've won many on chesskid.com and chess.com. I haven't won too many OTB tournaments, and only one OTB tournament that I won was a money tournament.

It was my first tournament and I got the win after nearly 1 year of playing! Was very happy! But the sad side is that I think the maker of the tournament died inbetween or something other bad thing happened to him. He stopped answering in the middle of the tournament and when I had a look on his account he lost all his last games by time and never played a new one since then. My thoughts are with him!
