So it looks like spring will start this Thursday. I will put some spring into my step and hurry down to the club to play some chess.

It's not too late to enter this tournament with a half point bye for Round One. Contact me at tfogec@wi.rr.com or 414-405-4207.

I see Awonder is only 11 points from a Master rating. But he only has a few weeks to be the youngest USCF Master ever.

Chris said...

Isn't he past that by a couple of months?

Chris said...

Ah, I thought the record was 9 years 9 months but apparently it's 9 years 11 months. My guess is that if Awonder will be over 2200 at any point during the tournament in St Louis he'll withdraw to secure the record.

Does anyone know what happened in Awonder's last round game yesterday against GM Atalik?

Southwest Chess Club said...

Awonder lost, ending up with an even score and $541. Hopefully also 2200.

Chris said...

Ratings are out and Awonder is at 2195. My guess is that you'll see him plan in the Give Me Liberty Challenge in DeKalb this weekend and possibly the Waukesha Memorial as well.
