As I play more tournaments, I notice that I tend to be in the winner's circle more often when I feel I am playing better. An odd little curiosity but one that I have found to be borne out by experience.
After the World team lost to the Danes at Nordic, I decided that I was going to win Monte Carlo. Everything looked good for awhile. The problems started when I lost my second round in the main. That was going to make winning the event a very difficult proposition.
I never really felt like my game was "on" the whole weekend. Although I can't win every tournament, I can always take some lessons away with me. The first and the most important lesson I took from Monte Carlo was while I was still alive in the consolation, long before the event was over: I need to play better. I should never be at a loss as to what to do.
