As everyone should know by now; I always play in the Open Section. Why pay $100 to play Gelvic and Johnny when I can play them at home for free? Additionally I receive free chess lessons by going over my games with stronger opponents. If you're in chess for the money you may need a new hobby. I guess I am lucky in that I enjoy chess win, lose, or draw; winning is better of course. Here is a game with multiple mistakes which I haven't analized deeply yet. Some may even think my choice of opening was a mistake, but I decided to "dance with the one who brought me". My opponent was also a "senior citizen". I'm sure it will be entertaining and anxious to see Ernie's comments.
