I am actually nervous…

Not hugely, but still.

After this evening I can no longer claim to be an unrated player. I am playing my first rated game tonight, in a tournament series on Monday nights.

I am calm, I am calm, I am calm.

Ohmigawd ohmigawd ohmigawd ohmigawd ohmigawd ohmigawd ohmigawd ohmigawd ohmigawd ohmigawd ohmigawd ohmigawd ohmigawd ohmigawd ohmigawd ohmigawd ohmigawd ohmigawd ohmigawd ohmigawd.

OK, seriously now. I’m going to play my very best game. I will do my best to manage my clock and take the time I have to consider my moves. And, if I win, great! And, if I lose, it is *not* the end of the world. The game will be what my opponent and myself make it to be. And that will be sufficient.

I’ll edit this entry when I return tonight with the result. I’ll post the game as soon as I can.

I’m off and running to enjoy my chess. And

Enjoy your Chess!
