Midwest Class Championship 2009

October 12th, 2009

I’m afraid I regressed for this tournament. I didn’t have the discipline to really noodle over the games. My opponent for the first round forfeited, so I only ended up playing 4 games. I went +2 -2 =0, but really deserved to lose all of them. In two games I saw combinations that I knew didn’t work and played them anyway. Well, here they are:
