Victory is Mine!

After weeks of serious preparation and studying, I was able the minor tournament (U1800) this weekend. I went 4/4 plus a 4th round bye. I'll analyse all of my games here, though they weren't all spectacular. One of the best learning tools is to analyse all of your games. Not only do you begin to learn tactics, but you can evaluate opening mistakes. All of them had minor mistakes and my 3rd game had two major mistakes for which I was incredibly luckily to win.

It looks likely that my rating will surge over 1800 by the time the ratings finally get updated and my 15 games since the start of the year are rated. Future tournament, I plan on playing in the Open section looking to play higher rated players.

Congratulations! I look forward to seeing your games here. Did you have a long hiatus from active tournament play?

I had a 7 year hiatus from tournament play.
