Langley Open 2012

Over the Labour Day long weekend, I played in the 2012 Langley Open chess tournament. It's the fourth time I've played this tournament, and had my best performance yet.

The tournament is six games over three days. I played a wide range of opponents, played some of my best Chess ever, and even got a bit lucky. As a result, I came away with 3.5 points (3 wins, 1 draw) out of a possible 6.0.

That score placed me 22nd out of 60 players, and tied with two other players for "Best Under 1700", splitting the $500 prize.

I also reached my highest rating to date: 1600! Below is the full tournament results list.

Have you ever thought about including a little bit
more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and
all. Nevertheless think of if you added some great pictures or videos to give your posts more, "pop"!

Your content is excellent but with pics and clips, this website could definitely be one of the very best in its field.
Very good blog!
