Seattle Chess Classic

In Solar Eclipse Shadow
Seattle Chess Classic is a new great local tournament.  It's a tough and crowded battle, where adults fight kids and whine like babies.

Naomi withstands 5 days, 9 rounds, of strong opponents, summer heat, stuffy basements, intense games, to emerge with 6 points (5 wins, 2 draws, 2 losses), share 3+ place, and get a $812.50 prize check!

That's about 2 days of Harvard tuition... but you have to start somewhere.  At least the prize pays for the gas of 5 days of 6 daily drives, 40 minutes each (the parents time comes free of charge, as always).

Just look at these happy exhausted chess addicts: Seattle Chess Classic photo album.




And Roland Feng took first place, as expected:



All the players look great!



The event has been followed by the Great American Solar Eclipse next day.  Epic!!!  See the photos.
