Little did I realize

How soothing that laughter is, from chess.

Round 1

Basic description of the game: The board keeps getting blacker.

Little Jason gained a hundred rating points since I last played him. He drew a provisional 1674 player and beat the relatively new guy that beat Anthea last month.

Alex lost to Will, 1303, in a very long Benko Gambit game.

What I’ve learned from this game, and from last month, is that it is taking me too long to calculate combinations. I can do it, just not at G/90 so much. It takes energy and focus to calculate tactical complications.
