Turkey Shoot 2020

I managed to score 4/5 and went from 2180 to 2177. Had I won my last game versus Blake, Herrera pictured on the left, I would have won 1st place instead of 3rd place out of about 3

7 players. My rating would have been near 2190 too. I’m so close to one of my lifetime milestones of 2200 USCF (National rating) which wild make me precisely a National Master.

In the diagram below, White found a beautiful resource to secure the draw.

I'm excited to really start blogging again. My next blog post will be about the Turkey Shoot Tournament in San Antonio where I scored 4/5 points. I drew a master, but I also drew an 1800 rated player.
