Well, Day 1 was a great day, but Day 2 . . . In the 4th round I had a crushing position against Hongkai Pan and let the slip away to a drawn position. But if that wasn't bad enough I let the draw turn into a lose! Then to make me feel better Guy paired me against Alexander Velikanov, which ended in me getting crushed on the kingside. What can I say, I had a bad day!

Parker wins the Wisconsin Memorial. I played solid chess, but got in too much time trouble too many times. I must work on that. Andrew had some tough pairings in rounds 4 and 5.
