Minnesota Closed--results

I played competitively with two wins and three losses which was a tie for third place. I have a lot of material to help me improve. I still have a class A rating, but my winning streak as Black was ended by Zach Adams.

Zach Adams was a titan striding across the amateur section, leaving the rest of us crushed in his footsteps.

I am using too much time. I got into time trouble several times. My play definitely deteriorated after move 30. I need much more practice with the move method, to be more disciplined in evaluating candidate moves, and  perhaps more speed chess.

I recorded my time at several points in most of these games, I will endeavor to do that more in the future
