By turning up

 I have just managed to win a rapidplay tournament at my local club with a pleasing 5.5/6. But the secret to this wasn't that the time control suited me, or that I was in good form, but something simpler. I turned up for all 6 rounds (3 weeks), which gave me a distinct advantage. A couple of close rivals had enforced absences (covid), while some had other commitments get in the way. Fortunately I wasn't affected by these issues, which maximised my winning chances!
