Well after reading Ivan's and Greg's Blogs I decided it was time for me to jump into the Blogsphere.
Im originally from England. I am a USCF National Master current rating 2253. I am the current co-IL State Chess Champion for 2008. I tied for second place in the state championship.
I was once over 2300 and hope to be over 2300 once again. I also dream of becoming a Fide Master which requires my FIDE Rating to one day go over 2300 but thats a long way in the future.
I am going to use this blog to share games some news from IL. Maybe talk some about the chicago blaze which I have played one match for so far.
