    I just finished my first real life tournament and I made... duh, duh, dun!! 1st! No joke! It was in the forth round (last round) it was a super close game! I was 3-0-0 and my opponent was 2-0-1 (the 1 being a draw). But then I saw it... a knight sack to get my pawn into promotion and the only way to stop it was to sack his rook 4 moves later! I sacked my knight and he took, then I had an easy endgame that resulted in victory. I was awarded a heavy, shiny trophy that I'm wearing around my neck right now. But getting the nice shiny trophy wasn't my favorite part of it. My favorite part was getting to shake the hand of a former grandmaster and hearing the word "Congratulations" from him. :))))

    Oh, I almost forgot! They (the staff) took my picture with the other winners (in different categories) and the picture is gonna be in my city's newspaper! I also became friends with the person in the 8th and older category, also I'm supposed to be meeting him on this website soon! :) He said he was a 1560.

    (And I think he would be happy if I don't say that I beat him in an unrated game afterwards!)

    That's it! My first tournament! And I made first place! :D

    And congrats to Ryan Fortsky. ;)

    My new friend who also made first place. :)

    WHOA, MY AUTHOR SKILLS NEED HELP.

    Any chance we can get the games? Well done.

    Thanks! :)

    And sorry. We didn't write down the games. Usually ever year they don't get a very big croud (it was the biggest turnout yet!), plus we're a bunch of kids so I don't know. They didn't tell us to right down our games.

    Were the games USCF rated?I always thought it was Mandatory to write down the moves,atleast in FIDE it is!Dunno but write down ur moves the next time,really helpful and by analyzing those games u can get even better!
