I did manage to invent a new opening or at least a new variation on an
opening I have long played. My new move, which I just invented over
the board, is 4. Nc3 after 1. g4 d5 2. Bg2 c6 3. h3 e5. I have been
playing either 4. d3 or 4.e4 in this position and my results have been
bad. I usually beat weak players but lose to strong players with these
moves. I feel that 4. Nc3 is a big improvement.

I lost all three games I played with this move but I fell that I got
the advantage in the opening in all three games.

A minor accomplishment is I believe that I may have gotten a (low)
FIDE rating from this tournament. In this tournament only the last
four games counted for FIDE rating purposes because I played in the 3-
day schedule and the first five games were played at a fast time
limit. Those games are not ratable by FIDE. This was OK because I lost
all the games except that I got a bye in round three.

The last four games were FIDE ratable because the time-limit was 40 in
2. All four of my opponents were FIDE rated. Their average rating was
2031. I scored 1.5-2.5 in those four games. Under the old formula this
gives me a rating of 1931. I do not know how the new formula works.

Did you practice and study beforehand? What level do you think you're
playing at now?
