A Posse Ad Esse


World Open 2008


Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
June 30th - July 6th


I won't be blogging this month. I'm training intensely for my first OTB chess tournament, the World Open 2008. Blunderprone and Blunderdaughter will also be there. I think I'm a competitive player, so I intend to walk away with a trophy and maybe some prize money.

Wow, the world open. Good luck, and post a picture of that trophy you intend to get ;)

Good luck!! Sorry I won't be around to cheer you and the Blunders on.

You can still blog some of the stuff you're studying. That way we get the benefit of your studies, and you can stay in touch with the blogosphere. I'll try to post some interesting games worthy of your attention. LOL

glenn, thanks! I'm helping for purely selfish reasons--I want to use your tool.

tanc, I'll win it for the Zipper!

banatt, good idea, but I can't find any photos of the trophies.

polly, thanks! ok, maybe I'll post my training progress in a week. :)
