Hello all–

This week on Hikaru Junction it's the IT Crowd, I.T. problems, and as always, chess games.
Enjoy!

2/4 is not so bad Orion, good thing is that you can build on it for next time.

Only thing I'd like to add is that you should share your opponents rating with the games,
to give the reader that little bit more insight in supposed playing strengths.

I just got my first ever ECF rating, 105, which is lower than I thought it would be.
It hasn't counted my draw vs. a 150 player, so I've already queried it with ECF.

Anyway, good luck in your future tournaments, looking forward to seeing progress!

Cheers,
Zak

Hello Zak–

Thanks again for your feedback! I'll go back and edit in the USCF ratings but here they are for your convenience:
Orion L.E. (1728–>1741)
James R. West (2200)
Brian Frank (unr.)
Anatoly Alexander Tsinker (2020)
Toshinori Underwood (1798)

Best of luck with your ECF crisis!

So the 2 games you lost were vs 2000+ opponents,
that's not such a bad thing then.

What bindings do you play?
Open tournaments?

Yes, usually open tournaments at the Marshall, sometimes larger grade-level or sectioned statewide tournaments when I get the chance during a long weekend or winter break
