I am now 30 years old, and have been following Christ for something like 6 years. I am eternally grateful that someone like me could be loved by someone like Him, and accepted by grace despite my many severe sins. I tend to be selfish, arrogant, and too often do what I know to be wrong because of some "justification" of the moment.

Eventually I will be a pastor if it is His will, but for right now I'm a mattress salesman in Houston, Texas. I have a wife and three sons, one 3 years, the second two years old, and the third just four months now. My oldest is putting together new and varied sentences, and he and the second are both fascinated by all types of machines. All three are a great blessing, although the youngest eats, sleeps, and has gas. He's smiling a bit now, and looking to learn this "sitting up" thing not too many months in the future. He takes a new step each day.

Praise be to the Father through Christ, who has richly blessed us.

Bobwhoosta: This has been one of my favorite tournaments in a LONG time. Full of excitement, with players jostling for position like the Kentucky Derby, and Wesley So winning by a nose in the final round!!! We've even seen the King's Gambit; still my favorite opening even though I rarely ...

Bobwhoosta: Speaking of websites being overloaded, anyone having trouble with the broadcast??? I'm at a friend's house on a mac, and this is the first day I've had trouble. Don't think the mac is the issue but I thought I'd mention it.

Bobwhoosta: <Domdaniel> I thought about that too. Thanks for clarifying. Well, my excitement must needs wait for another day. Also, I have to send home all 20 of the friends that I invited over for my Chess World Championship Party. We had 5 boards out for analysis and some VR goggles

Bobwhoosta: <Richard Taylor> I agree with you as well though. After watching the GM Svidler commentated with earlier this week, I realized that Jan really carries the show at times, and at other times Svidler dominates. Generally they keep a relatively good balance, with Jan playing ...

Bobwhoosta: <WannaBe: Are we having fun yet?> After only peeking in a few times today, and thinking again and again "Seems like it's pretty easy to hold, but then again these are the positions from which Carlsen can work some magic." I think I can answer your question for you: I sure ...

Bobwhoosta: <Vladimir Zukhar> Svidler and Gustafsson demonstrated that line was an easy draw. The black king simply sits on e6 and the bishop shifts to waste tempi. The white pawns can't come forward. As long as black retains the bishop there is no win.

Bobwhoosta: Turns out it WAS too early after all...

Bobwhoosta: I have to give kudos to Karjakin. He has given Carlsen a much better match than I expected. Not that I expected him to collapse early, but after facing so much pressure on such a vaunted stage, and holding so impressively in game 3 and easily in game 4, he is now pressing for the

Bobwhoosta: <Gypsy> Yeah, I can't see a way forward that doesn't involve trying for that exchange, but I'm really not sure I can see a way forward that does, either.

Bobwhoosta: A very nice save by Karjakin!!! He really defended well for a very long time, and saved half a point. He said with this defense that this is not a 1-person match. Kudos!!
