Goniff on the Loose
Busy, busy! I played the monthly slow open at the Marshall last weekend, with a really good result, two wins and two draws for a 2300 performance. One of the draws was against IM Jay Bonin. I'll put some stuff up this weekend.
I'm not ready to give any credit to my new training methods. For one thing, it's way too early; for another, I didn't play as well as the score indicates. I missed some important tactics, and could easily have had an even score instead of +2.
Still, any tournament where I don't lose to Jay is a good tournament, and I was in fine Goniff form, hanging on after the mistakes and dragging wins out of even endgames.
