Langley Open Chess Tournament 2012 Trailer

I put together a little "movie trailer" for the upcoming 7th Annual Langley Open Chess Tournament. Should be another great event this year and I am really looking forward to playing again.

2012 Summer Swiss Chess Tournament

I just completed a Chess tournament over the last few weeks, and had my best results to date. Not only did I get a plus score, with 3.0/5.0, but I also got my best performance rating, biggest rating increase, and highest ever rating to date: 1542. In fact, one of my goals for 2012 was to break the 1500 mark which I've done well ahead of schedule.

The tournament results

Over the last six months, I have put in extra effort to improve my game, and it paid off in this tournament. Now I look forward to playing the Langley Open in September, a six-round tournament that draws between 40 and 50 players, including some of the best from BC and Canada.
