TCCL 2011 round 1

Twin Cities Chess League round 1:

The good news: We are playing in the siver division, where the teams should be more competitive.

The bad news: Probably fewer masters and experts for me to play.

The "good" news: I got stomped in the first round by a player rated 2359.

He played a Botvinnick system against my KIA. This was the same defense that GM Kudrin used in his demolition of me. I have also seen it while playing the KID. I think I will be able to extract some lessons from this game.

The more bad news: everyone else on the opposing team was rated over 2000,  and they swept us.
