Greetings from Parsippany! So in my Wacky Wednesday post from two weeks ago Blunderprone left me a comment keep an eye for Reassembler and Globular at the tournament. So what were the odds that my team would get paired against their team? I guess pretty good because that's what happened. It was ugly. We were out rated on the top 3 boards by 300 - 400 points each. Fourth board was only 100 points, but the the result was the same. I was the first one done. It got kind of ugly at the end. Here's the game in all it's splendid ugliness.
I forgot my SD card and reader, so I had to actually input the moves into Chess Base by hand. Damn I get spoiled rotten. I guess if I was going to forget something, that was the least of my worries. I remembered my set, board, clock, reading glasses, iPod, chocolate and Mon Roi. What else do I really need?
