  3. I am business man who would like to, in the near future, put a considerable amount of money into WI chess.

    I am looking at the best way to do this.

  4. Thanks for posting the info Ivan. I also wanted to mention that there have been some questions as to how much the room rates are. I talked with Mike Selig today and was informed that the rates are still $79. There was a little confusion (on the hotel side) which Mike cleared up today.

    Any further questions for this event can be emailed to me at chessjock64@yahoo.com ....Mike is having some problems with his email....or you can call Mike...and we'll get them answered in a timely fashion.

  9. Well, judging from the previous blogs, BRUZ was present in person at the WI Junior Open/Adult/Senior event. He must have been a spectator who paid particular attention to Ivan's endgames. :-)
