Some progress...

I have made some progress, but getting to 2000, by the February supplement may be a tall order, but the way I see it, I need just one really good result!

I will not be playing Nov 25-26. I plan to stop by at the Scott Kittsley Quick Chess Festival . I decided not to play because I don't think I could learn much from G/29, and even if I did well, it won't change my regular rating. I am going to try and finish the book on rook endings instead.

My next tournament is the 2006 Illinois Class Championship in Joliet, IL. Dec. 2-3.

I am also thinking about playing in the Wisconsin Memorial in Madison,WI, Dec 9-10


  1. How much traveling did you have to do to play 109 games in only 5 months?

  2. You can click on the link that says "Rating Record" on the right.
    It will show all the tournament I have played in.

  3. Hey Ivan,

    I will be playing in Milwaukee this weekend.. I'm trying to convince Femi to come too.

  4. Also, my quick is 1930... So I may hit 2000 quick before I hit 1900 regular :-(

  5. I will stop by probably Sunday, see you then
