I defeated my first titled player

5 posts in this topic

I just finished another tournament. I had three wins and two draws. One of my wins was against a national master. I therefore gained 82 rating points from this tournament.

I had a few problems this tournament. My stress and anxiety were so bad that it made it hard to stay focused. I had stomach problems, a nervous bladder, and a loose stool. I had a hard time controlling my anxiety and it made it difficult to properly calculate everything.

This became especially problematic in the last two rounds of the tournament. Fatigue started setting in partially because I couldn't sleep until midnight and ended up waking up a 5. I was technically winning the last two games, but I didn't play as well due to fatigue.

I had excellent results with the Sicilian najdorf variation. I won both games with black and defended against an unexpected rook sacrifice. Here is the study with all five games.
