Out of commission...until further notice

My performance or rather non-performance at the 2011 US Class has prompted me to take time off from chess.

After a 2nd place finish at the Southwest Open a few weeks ago I was hoping to build on my success,  But it was not to be.

Prior to this event it took 23 games for me to amass 3 losses, but I managed to lose 3 out of 6 and had only one win. to finish 1-3=2.  All three losses were to players rated well below me.

Well at least I will be eligible to play U1900.

I apparently even suck at sucking since I didn't even make it U1900 !!
