Chess For You

somethingpretentious gets crushed OTB

by @somethingpretentious

This weekend I played in my first OTB tournament in roughly 17 years - the London Chess Classic Rapid Open. I've probably played fewer than 20 games OTB in the intervening years despite playing regularly online for the last 4!

It was tough to get used to the differences, which is clearly shown by my unimpressive 0.5 points from 6 games. I think it was a great experience though, playing OTB is a very different world. Even though I'd been warned, I wasn't expecting how fast the time went and 15+10 felt like 3+2...

(Study includes games from all 6 rounds)
