“in short, I should have liked, I do confess, to have had the lightest licence of a child, and yet been man enough to know its value.”
Excerpt From: Dickens, Charles. “A Christmas Carol.””
World Team Chess Championships
With all of the hullaballoo surrounding the World Chess Champions, which recently came to its conclusion in Chennai, India one might forget that there was another exciting battle just around the corner.
The World Team Chess Championships are underway in Antalya, Turkey and the U.S. is building some momentum after their 2nd round victory over their historical rival, Russia.
We’re proud of you guys!
I’m also excited to be traveling to Philadelphia tomorrow with the UMBC Chess Team for the 3-day National Chess Congress tournament. This is our big preparatory competition before the biggest collegiate team tournament of the year, the Pan-American.
