Chesapeake Open Starts Tonight!

This weekend, I’ll be playing in the Chesapeake Open in Rockville, Maryland, my first tournament since Thanksgiving weekend. For this tournament, I decided to play in the Championship section, meaning I will play among notable players such as current US Champion Grandmaster Gata Kamsky. This will probably be the toughest tournament of my career, so hopefully my preparation will pay off.

Last tournament, I earned my 2nd Candidate Master norm at the National Chess Congress in Philadelphia. While this tournament will not be easy by any means, my goal is to capture a 3rd, meaning I will need to score points against much higher rated players. This should be fun!
