Member since Oct-07-09
I live in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
My FIDE rating is approximately 2100.
I organize tournaments and play chess regularly at my local chess club:

The strongest tournament I have organized so far had three 2700's in it. The 10th Edmonton International, with Ivanchuk, Harikrishna and Hao Wang. 10th Edmonton International (2015)

   Edmontonchessclub has kibitzed 500 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Nov-14-15 European Team Championship (2015) (replies)
Edmontonchessclub: No Carlsen in the second round, either. I hope he plays a game.
   Jul-21-15 Ivanchuk vs R Gardner, 2015
Edmontonchessclub: Ivanchuk sacs two exchanges to get a massive attack.
   Jun-29-15 10th Edmonton International (2015) (replies)
Edmontonchessclub: GM Harikrishna Pentala drew his long last round game, and won the tournament. Ivanchuk, Wang and Ganguly tied for 2nd. All five GMs, Haessel, Gardner, Matras-Clement and a bunch of other regular Edmonton Chess Club players went to a restaurant, Boston Pizza, 17 people ...
   Jun-27-15 D Haessel vs R Gardner, 2015
Edmontonchessclub: FM Haessel, with two wins in a row, moves out of last place.
   Jun-27-15 Adams vs V Pechenkin, 2009
Edmontonchessclub: No, even a GM wouldn't play it instantly. There's no harm in checking things twice, and calmly drawing with ...Kf8, as Pechenkin did after a minute. That's the professional way. An amateur might show off by playing ...Kf8 instantly.
   Jun-27-15 V Pechenkin vs Wang Hao, 2015
Edmontonchessclub: A double pawn sac by Hao Wang!
   Jun-27-15 Wang Hao vs Shankland, 2015 (replies)
Edmontonchessclub: King hunt!
   Jun-27-15 R Gardner vs Wang Hao, 2015
Edmontonchessclub: Also, 24...d4! opening lines against Gardner's exposed king.
   Jun-25-15 D Haessel vs Harikrishna, 2015 (replies)
Edmontonchessclub: 21...Re5!, nice exchange sac.
   Jun-21-15 Robert Gardner (replies)
Edmontonchessclub: He beat GM Kovalyov at the 2012 Edmonton International R Gardner vs A Kovalyov, 2012
