I ended the tourney 7-8 -59, going 2-4 today. I lost one game by 4, and I am pretty sure better play would have won me that game, so I should have been able to go 3-3. Not winning that game cost me probably 30 rating points and maybe also the class prize (150 bucks). I'm not sure what it is about day 2 in tourneys, I did the same in the lexington tourney. Oh well, cant always play at your best, and considering the average rating of my oponents was 1570 I feel I performed OK. Estimated rating gain of 52 points, up to 1424. I am pretty happy with the tourney overall, I definitely enjoyed it. I also ended up winning 10 bucks for highest play (dorkiest 3x3 for 158). Sometime this week I'll post individual game recaps and more info/stories from the weekend, and maybe upload a few games to crosstables as well.
Highlight of the tourney: Beating Steve Grob (eventual tourney champ) in the first game with a score of 525, getting 4 bingos (ratified, bulking, tercels, and the disconnected 9 greediest).
