In addition to the G/60 , which takes place
today and the G/30 which occurs tomorrow, the 23rd FIDE Invitational (August 22-26) is underway with four GMs
participating. Organizer Sevan Muradian is particularly excited to see if IMs Ben Finegold and Sam Shankland can make score their final GM norms and if IM Ray Robson can score his second. Sevan is also proud of one IM-elect playing, Felecan, who scored, "all three IM norms at my events."
The National G/60 and G/30 Championships kick off a week of chess
action in the Chicago area. |
