Round 1 US Class Championships (Unrated Section)

Here it is - my first official USCF over-the-board game - and it's a win to boot!  I played with Black and I put my own annotations in. I'll run it through Fritz later to see how many missed opportunities my opponent and I had.

This was the longest time-controlled game I've played (120 mins).

Round 2 is today at 1:00pm, followed by round 3 at 6:30pm.

Also, I got to meet two fellow bloggers: Ivan and Donnie.  Both of them won their games too.

    I'm going to leave it to you to transcribe Round 4. I'm not sure we took down the notation correctly even with the backward setup. The tournament was fun with a great 6 pack of unrated players. You've got my personal details. I'd love to spend some time with you if we can carve it out of our paternal duties.
    I am dying to analyze whether I should have sent my Bishop into the 1 (or was it 8??) rank once I had your Rooks forked!!
    The best part of the weekend was knowing there are guys just like me out there with an affection for chess. Thanks for this blog! Keep it up! No Win Dan
