Yes, it's true at the Boylston Chess Club I played a 2000 rated chess player in a New Years Day tournament . *)
I lost a Marshall Attack
. It was interesting as he was normally a 1 d4 player and was a little surprised that I knew the line as a 1100 player which he was not as booked up on. At one point, I was left with the position in the diagram Black to move.
I went 0-4 against good competition. Here is the summary of my play.
1st game happy with Marshall Attack
2nd game made an unsound Knight sack for the hell of it
3rd game made a possibly sound Knight sack but didn't carry it through
4th game don't ask
Traveled with a high school student from our Chess Club who never played in a tournament before . He went 1 win, 2 losses and a draw. Beating a 1915 player and drawing against a higher rated player.
As always, a nice time at the Boylston chess club. Played some skittles games and discussed some lines of the Ruy and Kings Indian with some better players.
