I had a loss and a win yesterday and another loss and then a win today. Yo-yo effect in full force so far, but tomorrow my first game is against someone close to my level. Yesterday I didn't play great but with the large rating differences it probably didn't change my results. I overlooked a move against Rob Gardner (2309) then beat an unrated kid (Fraser McLeod).
|My game against Rob reached this position in the opening.|
Here I played 9.h5?? overlooking the simple 9...Nxe4!
I cannot retake the N on e4 due to mate after Qxa2
I'm pleased with my games today as I played a strong game in a loss against a Brad Willis (2130) and then ground out an endgame to a win against underrated junior Nigel Reynoldson (1309).
When I have more time I will post my games and some more info and pics.
