Playing in the Washington Class Chess Tournament This Weekend
Basically it's this really large chess tournament--at least the second largest annual chess tournament in the Pacific Northwest, but possibly the first (It might be smaller than the Washington Open, but I'm not sure). People come from all over to play in it. Most are from Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, or British Columbia, but people from all around the United States come to play in it.
It's a 3-day tournament, 11am to 11pm, Friday through Sunday. Six games, 6 hours each (max). Each player starts off with two hours on their clock, getting an extra 30 minutes after playing 40 moves. Ten seconds is added after every move.
Last year I played in the D-Class, placed 3rd out of... I don't remember, 40-something, maybe? But I won a couple hundred bucks. This year I'm playing in the C-Class, which is one section higher. I crammed all last weekend in preparation, and I'm feeling pretty confident. If I don't get home too late after my second game tomorrow, I'll give a quick analysis of my two games on here. Not expecting to win the whole thing or anything, but I'm going in with high hopes.
Anyway, I'll be off to bed now so I'm well-rested for tomorrow. I hope you had a happy Thanksgiving! I'll see ya tomorrow http://nwchess.com/calendar/WA_Class_flyer_2018.pdf
