It was a long day but we really enjoyed it and look forward to playing in more tournaments in the future. Here are some pictures from the day.
Olde Towne Middle School in Ridgeland - the site of the tournament. Evidently, they have an abundance of "E's" in Ridgeland.
Dad cooked waffles in the hotel lobby for breakfast!
Matt's first opponent was one of his teammates, Arthur.
One school had matching "Chess Commander" t-shirts.
This was supposed to be his second round match-up but they ended up switching pairings before the round started.
As luck would have it, his eventual second round match-up was the boy who ended up winning the tournament. Matt played him a close game and they were the next to last game to finish that round.
