Texas Championships - Rounds 4 & 5

In the 4th round, I faced a 10 year old who looked like he was even younger. It's interesting to watch kids play. Being about 1650 and 10 years old, he probably beats most kids his age. He's certainly better than when I was 10. So he plays the first 12 moves, in about 5 minutes. (We have 90 minutes for the first 30 moves.) He blunders and then takes about 40 minutes for the next two or three moves. Some of the time he isn't even looking at the board, but his eyes wander around the room.

ROUND 5

For the 5th round, I drew the top seed, a 14 year old, rated 1989, as black. The game was actually quite boring. Afterwards he said he never faces the Caro-Kann, so he's never bothered to learn any lines. It's a boring game, and I couldn't really do anything about it. So we agreed to a draw. Since it's a dull game, I'm only posting the final position and the pgn.
