A return to normal

After a tough 2 weeks of running chess events (in more ways than one) it is time to try and get back to normalcy. Apart from sleeping relative sensible hours, trying to remember how to play chess is a priority. I did try and play a bit of chess between the Doeberl Cup and the SIO, but it was a complete shambles. In the City of Sydney Lightning a managed a meagre 2.5/9, including losing two games by playing illegal moves. The highlight? After my opponent played Qxd4+ early in the game, I had the choice between exchanging queens straight away, or playing a zwischenzug (in between move), and then exchanging queens to get out of check. I went for option number 2, much to the surprise of my opponent.
