Round 6 starts in 10 minutes. If the Mon Roi guy gets all the merged players into the system you'll be able to watch my sixth round game. I'm not sure that's a good thing or not. LOL
This morning for round three I got paired up as predicted, and lost to a 1952. Nothing special about the game. I lost a pawn and he marched one of his pawns down and I had to sac a piece for the newly made queen.
Round four I got paired down against a 1284. Damn they don't make 1200s like they used to. He defended well, and I missed my killer shot which I did see, but didn't think it worked. I ended out losing a piece for two pawns and things fell apart after that. I will publish the game in my next post since it was an entertaining game.
Round five got paired down again, and played a kid with a 1250 rating. We both played too fast at the start, but somehow I managed to be up a pawn after the smoke cleared. Eventually he tossed another pawn and let me trade down to bishop versus knight ending. He made me play it down to 1 move before mate with me having six pawns to his none.
Time to go play some chess!
