In September I played in the Thursday Night Swiss at the Boylston Chess Club and had two of the best performances of my life. I drew an Expert (a chess player with a rating over 2000) and beat a USCF Master (a player with a rating over 2200). For comparison, I’m rated around 1500.

I think my game against the expert is actually a better game, but I don’t have that one handy to post here.
