Tournament report: Broke Even

This week I had 2 wins and 2 losses. Certainly an improvement over my dismal performance the week before. On the other hand, except for one of my losses to a master, everyone was lower rated than me, so the performance was not all that spectacular as the rating change shows: 1685 -> 1683.

It turns out it doesn't take very long to mentally list all the legal moves of your opponents pieces and sure enough I didn't make any simple one move oversights. I figure I'll continue that practice in tournament games until something makes me change my mind.

Not sure when the next tournament will be. Maybe mid to late September or maybe mid October. That leaves lots of time for study/practice.
