4SS, G/90 Green Bay, WI 54304.
I scored 1-1=2. With a performance rating of 1900. I think that my main problem is lack of confidence when I have bad results.
My confidence took a big hit on 2007-04-14 when I played in this Rockford tournament and it took me a while to get it back.
I think I have turned it a round in the last two tournaments. In the last 7 rated games I have played, I have lost three games to players rated 2100, 1967 and 1918 (2-3=2).
This is the story behind the loss to the 1967 (Me vs Ferguson,W - Hales Corners G/100 21.06.2007).
I have been reading the very interesting book, "The Art of Learning" by J. Waitzkin. In it he talks about how he used to confused opponents by going into complex positions confident that he would be able to come out on top. In the following position, I guess you could say I was inspired by J.W. to play the move 17 e4. (But when a floored out A player tries to do what J.W. was able to, the results are unpredictable to say the least!)

I saw the moves up to this:
But here Black has the winning move Qe2.
