I actually got 3/4 in this tournament, but it was another meaningless game, other than for training purposes, just like the game last night, because there were only two place-prizes, First to a Master, and Second place to an Expert. I lost as Black to a Master and therefore that was my only shot at a prize. Totally ridiculous, there should be at least three prizes, as I told Pete last night. You may as well lose your game or risk losing unless you have sold yourself out for mere rating points as recognition.
I played a 40 move blitz game on FICS here at 5:30 am. This feels like a more full game than the one I played at the tournament:
The rated game played OTB was excellent, though, for purposes of learning that opening that I found myself in. I have very little experience with it OTB, didn’t play it so hot, but at least didn’t make any real blunders.
