    So I played my first chess tournament after 6-7 years of inactivity

    Finally played in a chess tournament 2 weeks ago. It was nothing fancy, just an in-club tournament for fun.

    I obviously didn't do well xD but that's not the reason I am making this thread lol.

    I haven't played on a real clock in a while, so my hands forgot the distance it has to travel to reach the clock... More than once mid-tourney I ended up extending my hand too far and pressing on another table's clock

    One time the guy just looked at me and paused for like 5 seconds and then said "what the fuck are you doing?"

    I kid you not, this legit happened. And if it wasn't just a friendly tournament, I probably would have lost due to breaking some sort of rule lol

    I concur with Dofla, especially since it was a local tournament, it's not likely they were pro or anything ...

    Nice that you got to try your hand at chess again, hoped you enjoyed it !

    Yea I enjoyed it a lot...

    Hell enjoyed might be an understatement... I haven't had a chance to crush people with relentless offense in a real tournament match in years! It was really fun watching your opponent crumble under pressure of just pure offense.

    Plus... In a tournament where only 2 masters played and the rest were mostly club members, I got 8th place (12 players in total) So I wasn't rock bottom, I'd say that's a solid start for 6-7 years of nothing xD
