The tournament took place in Houston, Texas - my home area. This tournament was another struggle. Although I did not get the results I would have liked: 4 draws and 1 win, I came away from the tournament learning a lot about what I need to do to prepare better for future tournaments. I played in the Expert section this tournament (2000-2200). I ended up playing 3 1900 players and two 1800 players. They were all kids about 12 years old or so.
