Chess Brothers League season 2, Round 4: My Full Tournament Video And Thoughts.
In life, as in chess, one’s own pawns block one’s way. A man’s very wealthy, ease, leisure, children, books, which should help him to win, more often checkmate him.

Season 2, Round 4
Today was the 4th round of the Hivechess, Hosted by @chessbrotherspro.
It was nice to play a swiss event again, as the three previous rounds have been in arena format. The tournament had high participants as at least 35 people scored a point! @eniolw returned to winning ways, as he did well to finish ahead of 2nd place @tungphong who didn't lose a game (including beating today's champion) However, two tight draws brought his performance down to a second place. @samostically did well to come from behind to finish 3rd place.
Blackswan21,@tungphong really wanted to win today's tournament as it was evident in most of his games. In one his draws, He tried to win almost reaching the 100 moves mark!
I thought it was one of those bad swiss nights initially, but after a fierce come back winning my last 3 games, it seems I still get to keep my top 3 place this week. 5/7 was enough to do the job, which goes to show how tough the tournament is.
I have an hour plus coverage of my games and other games uploaded on @threespeak.
