So the event was quite good fun in the end and a good experience. So different from online play, 6 games in about 6 hours - phew!
5 of the 22 players were over 2000.
I managed to note the games up as I went (until near the end) and its a bit of a humbling experience to look over them afterwards - missed a mate in 2 - doh!
But i did get away with a semi-hanging piece as well, so perhaps it all evens up :-)
This was my last game (Round 6) against someone who is rated 1770 OTB.
I thought i managed quite well to get to the position at move 31.
I lost in the end, as I just made dumb moves under time pressure.
So a few lessons learnt, and ready to have another go at some stage
