Chess has unfortunately taken a huge backseat in the last couple of months.
I've also started playing in the Ryde Eastwood Club Championship as is my brother-in-law Steven (We got paired in the same group too). My friend Weng is also playing.
Signs of all rustiness? In my first game, I went down in 30 moves against (I was practically lost out of the opening) Persey. Last night, I was supposed to play Kerdic but he didn't turn up and forfeited by default.
Bummer. Wasted an hour waiting for him too.
Grrr.... not a great start to the competition for sure.
