Ben's Blog: NACA FIDE INVITATIONAL - First Report

[imagefield_assist|fid=3537|preset=frontpage_200x200|lightbox=true|title=|desc=|link=none|align=left|width=200|height=200]The facilities are great and there are a lot of chess players lurking everywhere.  The hotel has a nice swimming pool, jacuzzi, and exercise room.  I am working out on the treadmill twice a day, and I feel great.  I will, however, need to buy some new clothes, which, I have found out before, is a nice problem to have when losing weight.

I saw Alice in Wonderland in 3-D with Yun Fan today, so now I am ready to "Slay the Jabberwocky!" Chess tournaments are so much work!

So far I have 3.5-1.5 and I am white against IM-elect Robby Adamson in round 6.

Lady Gaga is coming to Saint Louis July 17, during the Women's Champs!  Anyone who can get me tiks will have free chess lessons!!
