And now for the not-so thrilling conclusion.
In short, I fell apart. I got 4th place when I was in direct running for second, and had a very easy shot at third. I started off with a performance rating of 1290, and ended at about 1000.)
The first game of today was against dylan, a kid from our club. He plays a very drawish french defense, and I was playing very off. I chased his knight into a good position instead of taking a free pawn and creating a passer. The game ended in a draw.
The second game of the day was against my own brother, then a half a point ahead of me. We played twenty moves and agreed to a draw.
The third game was very frustrating. I played a 1000 rated player with a 700 performance rating. (Mine was about 1100 at the time.) He played the sicilian, allowing me to play the morra. I traded two pawns for his right to castle, which must've not been the line, because the attack was no longer there. I ended up down three pawns down for nothing and lost. This was my only true loss in the last two tournaments if you don't count the 2020.
Hopefully when the ratings get posted i'll have a rating over 1000. If not, maybe next time.
Games will come tomorrow, I need to finish typing them up.
