Big Game Thursday

I'll be playing Steve Kesti, top-rated player in the Reno CC Class B Ch. and in first place after the first cylce with 3-0. I'm second with 1.5-1.5. So I'll need to beat him to have any chance of winning the tournament.

I've been working with the Chess Tactics Server pretty regularly (about 470 problems in three weeks) and we'll see if if it has any effect. I'm still working out the best training methods for me and my life and time constraints, but I've had the advantage going into the middlegame in almost every game I've played since my comeback began in December. I just have to be a good finisher and I'll be on my way!

Of course, being a good finisher is the hardest thing in chess.
