SDCC - Anthony Harborne Precision Shootout - Round 2

Played a game with Rocio which ended up in a friendly draw. By the end of the game I seriously started hallucinating and ignoring the checks making illegal moves. I also fell super hungry. We both had 9 minutes on a clock when I offered a draw.

SDCC - Anthony Harborne Precision Shootout - Round 1

I played G/90 last night with Arnold Berlin (USCF 1355).

It was a lost game for me but somehow we agreed on a draw. I stopped recording after move 49 since we both had very little time left plus I was certain I was loosing the game anyways. Somehow it became a stalemate but now I am thinking perhaps it was not a stalemate and I should report to the tournament director and settle for a loss. I seriously do not deserve a draw in that game. Arnold came out of a bad situation with a very strong game and deserves a win.
