Happy Mother's Day to all the chess moms out there!


My mom attended every scholastic chess tournament in which I played.  With her undying support, I never lost a chess game.  I dominated the dojo!  Thanks mom.




In addition, I wanted to make amends with one of the most active chess Mother Hens in Colorado Springs.  It is no secret that we haven't always seen eye to eye, but I certainly do appreciate all the hard work this person does for chess and hope my silliness didn't go too far.  I often see this Mother Hen followed by 4 little chicks at the library on Wednesday nights for free chess lesson, studying with a couple more chicks throughout the week, and gathering the entire brood together for chess on Thursday and Friday nights.  I published a couple of losses from this person already this year, not realizing I had doubled up.  I haven't even published one on mine yet this year.  So, I promised Earle that I would published all my losses from this week to make up for it.  Here goes:




I won his Denny's Quick May unbeaten:
