Chess News

It would seem that Gata Kamsky has risen back to the top ranks and captured the US title again. He is one of the top players I have never gotten to meet...and after hearing alot about him I guess I might be lucky. I have hobnobbed with quite a few back in the day when I was still playing OTB tourneys...now I stick to playing online at Gameknot.

Also good ol Vishy took out Topalov to keep the World Championship under his belt. He better get prepared because I think this little Magnus Carlsen kid might have his number in the next defense.

I do still play alot online and try and keep up but as age keeps creeping on me, which I have refrenced to quite a bit as of late, I am finding myself not as sharp. I now am content with the draw rather than fighting into an endgame where i might have a slight advantage. That shit takes ALOT of brain power and patience...which it would seem I am starting to run in short supply of.

Luckily though all of the years of chess have really made me a VERY good poker player. I plan on hitting Blackhawk quite a few times this summer ( that is where our casinos are here in Colorado ) and hopefully win a few tourneys. It would be sweet to win the qualifier for the WSOP. I win that and get to go...well school will have to take a hiatus. I have been on TV alot...mostly on Comedy Central but NEVER on ESPN.

Now wouldn't that be a dream come true!

So all of you that might be reading this...look for nmdavidb either on Gameknot or over at Ultimatebet.

Sit down and play a game or a few hands with me!!
