This was the first OTB game in a month for me. I felt pretty good in the opening, even went up a pawn, but then he outplayed me in the end. I played w/ the black pieces. Here's the full game below.
After that, I tried to expel his bishop and then get an attack going with my queen and knight, but his rooks and queen came barreling down my queenside ... and along with his bishop, he delivered a nice tactic by sacrificing his queen for a mate.
This was the first round of the 4-day and as such, it was played on a Friday night, with the playing hall about 1/4th full and with mostly adults at that. This was the most quiet round of the tournament. Rounds 2-7 were quite noisy for this smaller playing hall with lots of scholastic players.
