If you want to play chess in this National Tournament but do not have a team, they will find you a team. You can just register and the organizers will assign you to a team prior to the start of the tournament. Hope to see a lot of Wisconsin chess players down in Northbrook, Illinois for the team tournament.

If they really want to call this north they should play in like Fargo.

Good luck to all the club members playing in this event!

Thanks Chris. Round 1, Nolan drew on Board 1 vs NM Jim Dean (a nice defense with opposite-colored Bishops), while I pulled out a nice defense in time trouble vs NM Langreck, to draw. Jim Coons and Robin Grochowski lost on Bds 3 & 4.

Jeff Pokorski from our club is here, as well as others (Shiva Suri, the Gorectkes, etc). Looks like about ~100 players (once the 2-day and 3-day finally merge tomorrow afternoon). -Allen

If I didn't work Saturday morning I would have headed down there as well.

I heard that Santarius won the blitz event.
