U1600: 1st Place & Perfect Score
I won 1st place in my U1600 G/30 tourney this weekend with a perfect score. But to be honest, I'm disappointed with my performance.
When the games turned sharp, I danced the tactical dance, and my opponents were left panting on the floor wondering what had hit them. But some of the games were not sharp! Then I had to take risks and winning was tough.
Here's arguably my worst game:
Fellow bloggers, where did I go wrong?
1. My opening is all wrong if I suspected White was tactically weaker and I should take up the Reverse English (a.k.a. the Sicilian).
2. My opening is fine. There were better ways to play this position that I missed (and you will be nice enough to point out)!
3. You call that chess??
