Default I finally got a FIDE Rating

I competed in the "Best of the West Class Championship" in Santa Clara
California this weekend.

While I did not do well, it seems fairly certain that I got a FIDE
rating from this event. This is because I already had 8 FIDE rated
games. It takes 9 so I was one short.

It seems that I need to have 3 FIDE rated opponents for an event to be
FIDE ratable, so I could not just play one game and get my FIDE
rating. Since all 4 of my opponents have a FIDE rating, it seems that
I now have 12 FIDE rated games.

Here are the games. My game against Michael Wang shows that if a
player responds to my Deadly Dangerous Damiano's Defense with normal
moves, I can at least equalize. I came close to winning this game but
he held on for a draw.

Default I finally got a FIDE Rating

My FIDE rating should appear here in about a week:

http://ratings.fide.com/card.phtml?event=2030390

Not a high rating I must admit, but a rating nevertheless.
