I went into this tournament to get Grand Prix points but failed completely. I think that my problem was recent poor sleep. I was actually extremely pleased with the way I played my first three games until I hung my queen late in the third game. Finally in the 4th round I thought that my opponent Abhinav played like a 2000 player and I appeared to run out of steam and play at best like an 1800. The previous time that I faced him I thought that he was very tough to beat so maybe this B player is someone to watch out for.
After winning some tournaments recently, including the speed tournament last week, it was inevitable that I would have one bad tournament.
