My next game will be playing white against a higher-rated player. I have been studying king's pawn openings.

Yesterday in a pub, I studied my afternoon's game. And I was aghast to discover that I had been incorrectly recording some moves.

I fixed that problem.

But this afternoon's match exhausted me! I started 1 d4. But a few moves into the opening I mistakenly advanced to d5 instead of developing a piece. Things went downhill badly when I blundered my queen for a bishop. My only saving grace was that my opponent was worse than me in the end game!

The Director of Play entered game moves from score sheets into a chess database. Cool

I have been playing very well in the Doeberl Cup. Out of three games so far, I have two points! The Queen's Gambit and Sicilian Defence have served me well. Some fumbling in the middle game lost me the first round, however.

I have been delighted at winning three points in the 6-round under 1200 event. That's my best weekend tournament result ever!

I'm playing in a nine-round tournament.


I held up well against a far higher rated player!


Then I suffered from insomnia, and neglected to castle.


The next game was a slog!

I played a lot of beginners. We were at a community centre holiday. That was on the New South Wales south coast.

I have been practising against a Web chess engine. I had that set to Beginner standard. Thereby I got to practise end game. That having been a deficiency, reportedly.


This evening I played two games against a friend, winning both.
