Kramnik Blues

It is somewhat sad that Vladimir Kramnik has withdrawn from the Corus Chess Tournament at Wijk aan Zee. Major bummer!

Full details at http://www.coruschess.com/

Over in Singapore.... happier news awaits... the 2nd Singapore International Chess Convention which was wrapped up recently looked to be a stunning success. Man, why didn't they have this sort of event when I was much younger. I would have loved to participate in the Asian Schools Chess Festival. More details at:

    I don't know. Do you? :)

    You probably have seen me around.... in the leagues club around NSW esp. at the Eastwood Leagues Club (my BIL Steven plays there) and North Sydney Leagues. :)

    I only got into chess like less than 5 months ago. And have only been in 1 competition (albeit having to miss quite a few matches as I was overseas and had to get a bye on them) so far.
