Thanks Augusto! May is so far away! That's a real bummer my friend. I'm sorry to hear that.

I have family in ABQ and I have some time off coming up so maybe I can visit family and play in a local tourney. Maybe.

Sir Nemo said...

chessaholic: indeed! I'm way excited for all this chess-o-mania!

glenn w.: yeah come down here man! If you can, try to make it out to the Albuquerque Open at the end of June. That's plenty of time to prepare for a trip :)
