I had great time at this tournament. The playing conditions and organization were excellent, complementary coffee and snacks were nice touches.
I don't like to play with time controls less then G/90 or play more than 2 games a day. This tournament was G/60 and there were 4 games in one day. But there was nothing else I could find for this w-end, and I decided that I would like to get better at shorter time controls too.
All my games went right down to the wire in terms of time. The two games I lost were mad time scrambles by both players.
I finished with 1-2=1, and will probably lose about 19 points. to get back down to 1865
I lost both games as White! The final 10-15 moves in these games were not recorded.
