Apparently the 3.5-0.5 match score has become a trend with our team, as that’s been the score for the last three matches! Fortunately, we were on the victorious side for the two of them, so nothing to complain about! Last week we had a major victo...

Unfortunately our crashing win against North Carolina last week didn’t turn into a winning streak and in turn we got crashed .5 – 3.5 against New England.  So now this leaves us in third place in the Pacific division, which will make our match aga...

Things really turned around for us after last week’s match: we are now tied for 2nd-3rd, a big upgrade (unlike iOS7) from being in last place the week before. The match was rocky as usual, and at some point things were looking questionable on seve...

After our week 4 loss against the New Jersey Knockouts (which I forgot to blog about, oops!), week 5 brought no excitement or better resuts to our team. The match vs. Arizona ended 2-2, with all 4 draws, which I think is pretty rare in the league!...

After last week’s miraculous win, luck just wasn’t on our side this time around. I have no other excuse except that Miami is just a really strong team (Yuniesky even managed to beat me in North Carolina) with many strong lineups at the...

Well this was one hilariously embarrassing blunderfest. After about 15 minutes, we were losing on boards 3 and 4 and I thought a tie is the best we could hope for. It kind of reminded me of our matches at the Olympiad, when at some point I’d just ...

Hi chess.com fans, This is my first time blogging for LA Vibe and currently I’m playing at the US master’s, so unfortunately I have to make this blog short and just summarize the match (the rest will be long rants. Topics of discussion – unclear)...

In our history, the L.A. Vibe have always done fairly well against the Dallas Destiny. Our lifetime score is 2/4, but I'm pretty sure we have been the rating underdogs in all 4 matches! Moreover, in our last meeting, back in Week 5 in 2011, we won...

Last week the L.A. Vibe was sorely beaten 3-1 by the Philadelphia Inventors. It was a tough match, and like our other matches this season, I felt very good about our chances early on. Nicky had a large time advantage out of the opening and seemed ...

Arguably the worst match ever...pretty much all 8 players at some point made some egregious oversight, or horrible practical decision, or just played sloppily--anyways, maybe this tragicomedy of errors was enjoyable for the fans, who were once aga...
