Live from Colley’s, 1/11 Version

So, another night for Twin Cities Chess Club at Colley’s.

Tonight it was fun, as all of us were present at some point Saturday’s tournament. We had a look at the beautiful Gelfand-Nakamura game in Round 5 of the World Team Championship. Go Nakamura! From there we, as a group, played through a game from Saturday’s tournament.

Then we all just talked for awhile as a group, and then had a G/10 ladder event. Can’t say that I won any games (my perfect record at Quick remains – no wins!) It was still pretty fun to descend down the ladder.

A little more chat, some consolidation of my games from the tournament into ChessBase (since I still don’t have my 2009 Light Premium running,) and then it was a little over three hours later.

Shameless plug: Come on down to Colley’s Chess Cafe on Monday nights! (Or Tuesday nights. Or just stop by!)

Personal log: I’m deeply considering attending the tournament down in Decatur this Saturday. A lot of us are. :)

Originally I wanted to go to the fun event in Peoria on Sunday at Hardee’s, but I’m attending a hockey game instead. (Another nice thing about Chess: Nobody ever went to a fight and a Chess Game broke out. Though the reverse has sometimes been regrettably true…)

Then Monday is the MLK Scholastic tournament, and I’m working the floor there.

I am taking Tuesday off, too, and am going to a play with my Mom.

Then the following Saturday is another tournament I’m assisting at.

So it will be a busy couple of weeks for LaughingVulcan. The blog may suffer a little… but it can.

If you’re out there reading, I’d appreciate a comment saying you are. (Note: NO commercial spam links allowed or obviously spammy email addresses.) But I appreciate knowing I’ve got actual readership. :) Until I hear from you

Enjoy your Chess!
