Journal Entry: #08

J

This past weekend I had the pleasure of attending the NOVA Pumpkin Classic Tournament and seeing many friends there. And though I originally planned on playing in the tournament that day, I ended up being on call for work and thus planned on only attending to see friends and show my support. Upon arrival though, I got convinced to play in the first round since we had even numbers. And while I...

G

Go Congress 2014 – Day 5

G

Prelude – I – II – III – IV – V – VI – VII – Conclusion With the tournament officially off my mind, I have to admit it was kind of refreshing waking up without the worry of getting there at a specific time. I still got up a bit early though, as I wanted to run on over to sign up for simuls before the spots filled up. After all, since I wasn’t...

Go Congress 2014 – Day 4

G

Prelude – I – II – III – IV – V – VI – VII – Conclusion Today was the official rest day for Congress. In other words, this meant that there would be no tournament matches so that people could go and explore New York if they wanted.

And with my brother in town and my girlfriend coming up to...

Go Congress 2014 – Day 2

G

Prelude – I – II – III – IV – V – VI – VII – Conclusion The next day I woke up late. Since I knew that my games took a long time, I figured that it would be best for me to grab breakfast before heading off to the match. After all, the worst thing that would happen is that I would have less time. Right? When I arrived, I found everyone sitting and...

Go Congress 2014 – Day 1

G

Prelude – I – II – III – IV – V – VI – VII – Conclusion The first official day of Go Congress! Woot! Needless to say, I was up bright and early and on my way to the hotel. The tournament was supposed to start around 9:00am, so I stopped by the hotel cafe to grab a quick breakfast (which ended up being a croissant and an orange juice) since I wanted...
