Gobble Gobble from Milpitas!
Fully stuffed with turkey on Thursday afternoon, I consider myself adequately fed to play all weekend in the Bay Area Chess Thanksgiving festival in Milpitas. Unfortunately, the entries are really disappointing with only four players rated above 2000, but perhaps someone else will sign up for the 2-day schedule on Saturday morning. On the bright side, I hope to play each master or expert, including top seed IM Ricardo DeGuzman. In fact, I am currently 2-0 after defeating former master and fellow blogger Dana Mackenzie (2120) this evening as white in an unusual (and perhaps unsound) Trompowsky.
I expect to add more photos to my Flickr album on Saturday.
