I played the first round of the four round chess tournament in Salesforce.com. I won with White, although I felt I am out of touch by a good margin due to the lack of practice. My opponent was Didier Prophete who is PMTS and sits in 3rd floor in the same building as I do. Also I took lot more time than my opponent to move.
However, I will do some practice before next rounds so that I don’t make simple miscalculations.
Soon after this, I exchanged the queens to make sure there is nothing left in the board except my Rook and Didier’s Bishop while I have a bunch of queens side passed pawns to march for promotion. So he resigned here while I had some 3 minutes left in the clock as opposed to his 9 minutes.
Last few days I finished Himu Rimande and Kichukhkhon by Humayun Ahmed.
