2012 Canadian Open Chess Championship

I'm registered in the under 2000 section. I bet that's the first time anyone from Maple Bay has been listed in a major Canadian chess tournament. As someone who spent time in "River City", I'm happy to see a number of Winnipegers, or former Winnipegers, as well. Jack Yoos, Kevin Li, Jeff Babb, Dezheng Kong, Jamie Campbell and John Remillard are all playing. Welcome to Vancouver Island, chess players! Here is the Monroi link for the tournament. There is also a Facebook page and the Victoria Chess Club has a page as well.

In four rounds I have 2.5 points with 2 wins, a draw and a loss. I'm happy with my results so far. Robert North (1913) beat me on the White site of a Catalan, I beat Bruce Thomson (1634) on the White side of an English, I drew with Chris White (1803) on the Black side of a Volga Gambit Declined, and I won as Black in a similar game against "Stone Cold" Ross Richardson (1956) last night. 2 more games today!
