Just a reminder that registering early saves us some time on game day and also saves you some dollars. We are really looking forward to having the tournament in our new location, and hope everybody comes out to join us. Thanks.

One of the most impressive fields already!

Extremely impressive field, especially now that David Sagunsky has registered.

With just four rounds, are we looking at several perfect scores?

Hola darlings!

Good luck to all of the chess femmes tomorrow. I wish I could be there with you, but alas, I cannot. I will be there in spirit, though. And if you happen to hear a little angel whispering in your right ear "make X move," please don't do it, as I'm a crappy chessplayer, LOL! I will be following the blog results as they are posted, and I am cheering for each and every one of you to win lots of Goddesschess prize money, woo woo! We paid out a record amount of prize money to the chess femmes in Challenge XVIII. Let's top it, ladies! Gift bags for the top female winner in each Section were delivered into the safe hands of Tom Fogec earlier this evening. Ladies, whoever the winners may be, I hope you will like your gift bag items. Feed back is appreciated. Chessly items are not so easy to come by unless one is shopping for chess sets :)

I love you all, and will be sending kind and loving thoughts toward all of you tomorrow, and let's kick some male chess butt, ladies, woo woo!

The tournament just wouldn't have been the same if Dave Sagunsky didn't attend. It was a good tournament!
