I'm an amateur who's been trying to improve a little for the last several year since I befriended a USCF Expert. Of course I don't have much time, so my efforts are mostly restricted to working though tactics and strategy books during lunch breaks. No rating now but I estimate I'm maybe 1400.

mikejaqua: Awesome to have an American player in the top ranks again.

mikejaqua: RIP GM Evans. I think he was one of the 10 best native-grown US GMs. Sad to see him gone.

mikejaqua: If you all haven't seen THIS story you must read it. http://www.chessbase.com/newsdetail... Vishy Anand: Truly a world class human being.

mikejaqua: Actually this looked like a rather poor performance by Kamsky. Four draws in 9 games, against opponents rated more than 100 point lower than him? Not impressive. His Rp was 2663 if I read it right. That's not gonna get him anywhere against Anand or Topa.

mikejaqua: I predict that Shirov's winning streak will stop once he comes up against the big boys; Carlsen, Anand, Kramnik, Chucky. So one more win, then draws.

mikejaqua: Wow! Bare kings. How often does one see that?

mikejaqua: Say! With today's win, Mickey will go back over 2700 I do believe. May even overtake Short.

mikejaqua: Three wins in the tournament. ALL of them Carlsen's. And it'd be 4 wins for Magnus if he hadn't gotten into time trouble yesterday. Maybe he should play them all at once in a simul.

mikejaqua: Wonderful to see Kaspy at the board again.

mikejaqua: Great to see Shirov showing good form again.
