For National Chess Day – a new tournament


In honor of this year’s National Chess Day I’ve entered a new club-based Correspondence Chess (CC) tournament. It was time for me to do that anyway. My current CC game load was down to only a handful or so. With this being a double round robin tourney I’ll now have eight more games, all to be played concurrently.

There are five us playing in this particular tourney hosted at Scheming Mind Chess Club: I’m the only American, the others are from Scotland, England, the Czech Republic, and Mexico respectively. We’ve all met each other over the board before. The games should be interesting and fun.
