When I got a chance to play in a G/30 tournament this past Friday I took it. I finished 1-1=2 with a loss to a Master. I had draws against lower rated opponents, but considering the fact that I don't usually play G/30 and the that the players in question were up and coming juniors, it was not that bad.
The Friday, 4 round G/30 events usually attract around 80 players and has had over a 100.(when Hikaru Nakamura played). GMs and IMs from the UTD team frequent this event and this week was no exception.
The nation's top 11 year old Darwin Yang got past 2200 mark for the first time at this event by drawing GM ALEJANDRO RAMIREZ in round 2. Dawin had Q+2p vs Q, but could not find a way to get out of checks with not much time left on his clock
