Blunder Prone takes on the World!

I got an early father’s day gift hint…. And set my reservations for Valley Forge in early July. I’M HEADING TO THE WORLD OPEN ( again). I’m going to try my hand in the under 1800 section again and ward off all those cheaters and win that 20K!... or at least have some fun trying.

Since I’ve been training all along in the spirit of no new knowledge, I plan on continuing my regimen of tactics and non-annotated master game analysis of my selected openings. I’ll mix in the GM-RAM endgame studies as well as the classic games in that gem of a book. Oh, and I’ll try not indulge too much in internet chess.

I am excited. Lastyear I had a blast and finished with a plus score and a rating boost. I was so close to Nakamura that I could tell what he had for lunch by the spinich stuck in his teeth. I plan on dong more late night insanity with blitz tournaments.

Look out world, here I come!
