Back

After starting the year on a high note (highest published rating), I am back on my floor after a dismal 0-7 performance in my last event. I took two weeks completely off of any chess acivity.

I will not be able to go to the Chicago Open this year.

On a personal note, my daughter was born on May 16th

  11. Congratulations! Apparently, you've been through it before so you need no lecturing on how it may impact your chess life.

  12. Ivan- Looking at that picture, I hope you realize, getting to 2000 doesnt mean squat. Congratulations.
