First round of May HCC Wednesday Tournament

The Houston Chess Club (HCC)  has a month long tournament on Wednesday night.  Each game takes just one night.  Each player is given 90 minutes to make the first 30 moves and then gets an additional 60 minutes each to finish the game.  All in all, it can be a 5 hour game.

This month, Stephen and I played.  The first round was the best for me in terms of the least mistakes, and I thought it would be a good chance to try out the Chess By Blog wordpress plugin.
