I did not win first place this time. I lost my very first round against class A player James Pollitt. This was the opponent I defeated two years ago, and I mentioned him and showed the game in one of my previous posts. This time, however, he got the best of me. He was grinding me down out of the opening and I cracked under the pressure and blundered two pawns. This blunder happened on move 18. Nf4. It was really just a mistake of carelessness.
