Greetings,

Happy Mother's Day to all the chess mom's out there! Ok, I am late, but it is not like you are getting your kids to the chess tournaments on time.

This Tuesday (5/11) the Colorado Springs Chess Club will have the 2nd round of the May Swiss 90  (G/90+30, 4SS, $10 entry, prizes).  There is still time to enter and join the fun!  Also, this Friday (5/15) will be the IHOP Quick (G24d5, 4SS, $5 entry, prizes).

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