Round Three, Twin Cities Chess League, this Friday

I am looking forward to this Friday. In the last three tournaments I have raised my rating by 89 points, such that I am back on the verge of being rated as a Class C player again (1400-1599). More importantly than the rating itself, I have been playing better chess. I have played with more confidence in complicated positions, and I am expecting that to carry through on Friday.

Of course, I won't be doing this alone. I am hoping for good results from our whole team, Tal Tales!

So how did it go?

I'm sure you had fun, regardless ;-)

Thanks for asking. Our team lost, 0.5-3.5, but I drew a 1798 rated player! (I'm psyched for that result!) We played tough. I had 8 seconds left, he had 9 seconds. There was no way for either of us to win at that point.

I'll write a post about it later.
