The worst game I have played in my adult chess life. I am showing my ass here, but what else can I do?
Other items of possible interest: common sense prevailed for one moment at the Delegates Meeting when the knee-jerk ADMs about the problems at the National Elementary scholastics were defeated. It left the room when we spent 30+ minutes on the wording of the rule which specifies that you must touch the king first when castling. A NY TD introduced a slew of ADMs that would have added rules / TD tips to the rulebook to cover the rarest and most inconsequential situations. That took up another 40 or so minutes.
Everyone has plays a real stinker now and again, but did I have to pay so much money for the honor of doing so here?
At least I have the rest of the day to do something … once the thunderstorm that just rolled through passes.
I finished at 4/9 and I will lose dozens of rating points. A recap may follow eventually. Or not. Whatever.
