Tonight is the City Speed Chess Championship (RR, G/5; d/0, $10 entry, prizes, unrated, 2-week event)!  NM Josh Bloomer is aiming for his 6th title this year.  Can anyone in the Springs knock him off the top of the Speed Chess mountain?  This week is the Qualifier round with the Championship and Consolation rounds next week.

Maybe I have a shot.  I did just win the IHOP Quick on Friday.  Here are the results:

Also, I got some great tips from my good buddy GM Gata Kamsky!

Paul Anderson and GM Gata Kamsky

Here are some more photos from my time with Gata and more: Kevin vs Gata U1800 section Open section Brian & DuWayne Tactics Tim Brian vs Anthea Senior Champs

This week's position comes from my email match with my dad.  It is white to move.
