There is still one more round of this Thursday’s tournament, but I have dropped out of it.
I figured that 48.Kh4 was a blunder, but actually I simply didn’t know the drawing technique. If I keep checking his king with my rook in front of his pawn, then it’s only a draw, but I was playing on the 30 second delay with well under half a minute on my clock.
My blitz rating on FICS is at 1500. It’s funny how many years it took for me to get it to 1500. By the time I got it to 1500, which was just a couple minutes ago, it feelt like nothing, like I could try to make 1600 now. That’s the thing, if it’s hard you’ll never make it, it only comes easy.
