Columbus Open 2013

I did very well (2+1-2=) and gained another CM norm. I was even (1+1-1=) against masters again, but they were higher rated than last year. I beat a strong expert, and was lucky to draw against a class A player in the last round. The master I beat in the first round reentered and tied for first (8 way tie). The master I drew also tied for first.

Most important is that all of my games have lessons for me.

I have decided that I need to record my opponents clock as well as mine, especially against masters. I need to make note of when they think a long time and when they do not, and then to figure out why.
