I have my first tournament since the creation of this blog. I'm playing in the Costa Mesa Octos this weekend. Normally I try to avoid one-day tournaments as I'm trying to train myself to take more time and faster time control tournaments can screw this up a bit. Also this is a bit of drive for a one-day tournament, but the tournament scene in Southern California has been suffering a little bit so there aren't as many two-day tournaments. A friend of mine made a little bit of an effort to get a few stronger players to come out to this event. Looks like there are going to be like 4 or 5 solid experts and a couple of masters. I'll post an update to track my results.
