Southern Illinois Summer Open 2016 (Round 3)

Southern Illinois Summer Open 2016 (Round 2)

After I blundered a piece in the opening I decided to fight on and hope for a draw but I made the mistake of exchanging rooks on move 45.Rxf7+ when 45.Rd8 was my last hope for drawing chances.

Southern Illinois Summer Open 2016 (Round 1)

This was my first tournament in well over a year. I finished it with 2 wins and one loss. Overall I was unhappy with my result because of my poor play in round 2. Here, in the first round, my opponent made an elementary blunder in the opening - losing a piece. It was an easy win from that point on.
