Re: Louisville Chess Tournament

I also won round 1 against a 1700's player.    I wasn't happy with this game.  My opponent gave me a great position and I didn't know what to do with it.  I barely produced a win with 5 seconds left.  Maybe I can learn something from computer analysis. 

 Finally in round 3 I beat an 1800's player who made me play on a big wooden set that I didn't like.   He played an Albin Counter and it was a tough struggle that went down to  about 25 seconds for both players.  

So I won the top section of a 39 person tournament.  The usual Experts were a no show but there were 4 Class A players.
