An adult player's quest to get a Master rating.
I will not be able to go to the Chicago Open this year.
On a personal note, my daughter was born on May 16th
Congratulations with your daughter.
I think you just got to 2000.
Congrats Ivan you will find having a child limits your chess big time.Jon
Congrats on the new addition! It's a life-changer for sure, one of the greatest kind. Sleep when you can!
Promoted to a queen! Congratulations!
Congratulations, Ivan. Your other kids play chess, so your new addition will probably keep you playing longer than ever.
Thanks everyone - iw
Congrats, there's nothing like the feeling of holding your child for the first time
Congratulations on the birth of your daughter!
Ivan, Congratultions to you and your wife on the new baby. ---Tom Fogec
Congratulations! Apparently, you've been through it before so you need no lecturing on how it may impact your chess life.
Ivan- Looking at that picture, I hope you realize, getting to 2000 doesnt mean squat. Congratulations.
