Disappointing result for me in the Chicago Class at 2 of 5. The Chicago Open and the Chicago Class have always been the most difficult tournaments for me. even with best play it would have been difficult for me to exceed 3 points.

Alex said...

You are one of the adults who has been making steady progress in the last couple years. Keep it up!

Robin said...

I make steady progress too: first I make steady progress up and then I make steady progress down!:)
