On Saturday we headed to Malaga for the second day of the Malaga Promotion Chess Tournament. All three of us (myself and our two kids) won one of the day’s two games.
In my first game, I played one of the higher-rated players, Sergio Morales. Similar to what happened last weekend, I played well and arrived at an advantage which my computer analysis program deemed to be “decisive”. Unfortunately, also as last week, I ended up making my typical once-per-game tremendous error, losing my advantage and then losing the game. This week, it happened on move 40.
I managed to win the second game, against a nine year-old, who initially had me in some trouble.
