Ending the month with a smile

Usually when I log onto the Chess.com website it’s only to play chess; I tend to ignore messages, chats, news, and all the other things available at this online chess club. But this morning I clicked on a message sent to me from the system and learned that I’d won the 3rd place trophy in a club tournament that ended last week. Yes, that put a smile on my face. 🙂

The Rosacrucian Tournament began nearly two years ago, and started with sixty players competing. We moved through a total of 540 games played over five elimination rounds. At the end of it, my record of thirty wins, nine losses, and one draw, was good enough for third place overall.
