Long time no see...

Sheesh, has it been a month already since my last post? Wow, time flies when you are having fun.

I'm still playing my weekly game with OJ, and also a weekly game with fellow knight Chris Kilgore. Chris and I are practicing various openings, and somehow I've gotten myself into the Sicilian Dragon (as if I have hours of free time per day for openings study...). We had a great dragon game two weeks ago. I lost in 19 moves if I recall correctly, but it was one of the most fun games I've played in a while. I have black this coming Sunday so maybe the dragon will re-surface again. Currently I'm down 4.5 - .5 against Chris (I drew as white against his Berlin defense :-), but I'm learning a lot and having fun.

Someday I'll get around to posting games- really.

Anyway, hope everyone is doing well.
