    you weren't going to win the tournament anyway, you might as well learn something as you get knocked out.

    The point is that the draw literally could not have been any worse for me. It's pretty unlikely, and therefore mildly diverting.

    But thanks for your input, Trevor.

    i know what you mean, Tournament 958 was the first non-banded tourney i entered here (rating was about 1100) - talk about luck 😞

    I had the last few months of school, but im all finished until september...So i get to finally play chess all i want. Tough grouping like you said, and Trevor, its not about him learning, (well it is) hes just commenting on the Irony of it. Hopefully you can give one of those guys a run for their money Dottewell. no matter what i hope to get to the next round and pull a few upsets!
