Your Last Tournament

Hello ChessMood family ! (after this sentence I wanna say "GM Avetik is here with you"...) :D

Well, tell us what was your last tournament? how did you play and how much do you miss OTB chess (on the board)?

I never thought that I would miss OTB tournaments, but now I feel that I really miss it, my last tournament was in January, 8 months without tournaments, the last 18 years this has not happened to me :D

My last tournament was Nov 29-Dec 1 last year. I was 3/6 and didn't feel I played well. I had 2 games that I threw away big advantages in, one draw one loss from those 2. Unfortunately that was the first 2 rounds, and was hard to recover. 2 1/2 of the last 4 was not a bad finish, but I expected more of myself :)

My last OTB game was Dec 2019. Yes, one thing this situation gave us is appreciation for the 'obvious'. It wasn't so obvious, it was precious!

Who knows when it will end? In 1 year? 10 years?

Around 2007 was my last tournament over the board! (I gave up chess for over 10 years)

I never make the same mistake twice. I make it five or six times, just to be sure... :D

Hi

I promise myself to play 40 OTB games this year, I have a good start 5 in january, 9 in february, but since then only playing online, some slow games, but mostly blitz/bullet.

Here in Uruguay they are coming back with OTB tournments, so I am considering coming back in november probably.

Best Regards

marc

16 years ago, I won a tournament at Paris. I won the first prize scored 8.5/9 and won 1000 euros 

It could be the beginning of my chess career, but I have stopped playing chess after that event, until this Covid 19 lockdown, when I made a mistake twice: playing chess again ... after 16 years :D
