Tonight is round 2 of the June Swiss 90 (G/90+30, 4SS, $10 entry, USCF-rated, prizes)!




I was robbed of a tournament victory! 




You can view a lot of USCF game stats on this page (just type in your id):








After looking at my record by year numbers, I found out I was missing a game.  It was a win over Paul Grimm in the 2001 Winter Springs Open.  The reason the game is missing is that the 4th round was not reported and every player in the event lost their last game.  I was outraged!  All those times I was just a point away from hitting a new ratings floor were unnecessary anguish.  I want justice!  I want my prowess over Paul Grimm restored to its rightful place!  Com' on chess players, lets Make America Rate Again!








This week position comes from the Tuesday night event.  It is white to move.
