  2. will the prize money be based on USCF quick ratings or regular ratings?

  3. If you follow the link and look at the tournament information it says USCF regular ratings.


  4. Now, start planning for Quick State Championship on December 13th. All details are on www.wichessacademy.com
    Can Erik Santarius hold THREE state titles at once? If not, then who can stop him???

  5. My name is Lauren Goodkind and I have been playing in USCF tournaments for about nine years now.
    I'm also trying to get more females to play chess too.
    I produce a TV chess show, "Chess Diva" in Palo
    Alto, California, with my twin sister Barbara. The
    purpose of the show is to promote chess especially to females, since it is a male-dominated game.
    Over the summer, we entered the sixth episode in the
    WAVE (Western Access Video Excellence Awards) contest.
    The link is http://www.accesswithoutborders.org/wave.
    About a month ago, we learned that "Chess Diva"
    was a finalist for the "best instructional"
    Two days ago, I flew to Denver, Colorado to attend the award
    ceremony. We are happy that "Chess Diva" won
    the award for the "best instructional" category!!
    The sixth episode features Barbara and I teaching some
    chess positions. We also show a "Chess in the community" video.
    Not only that, we also feature top USCF female chess
    players interviews with Alisha Chawla and Jessica Lauser.
    We invite you to watch our show on the internet and give
    us feedback! The link to the show is
    Lauren and Barbara

  6. You're still so close to the threshold. If you had won against Allen B... next time!
