Some News

I will be going to Philadelphia in the end of the month to play in the World Open. I have never played in the tournament, which is supposed to be the biggest annual open tournament in the world. A lot of strong players appear to try to cash in on the $25,000 first prize. I will then play in the Canadian Open, which will take place at The Westin Harbour Castle in downtown Toronto. I haven’t played in Canada in 2 years and I haven’t played in Toronto in much longer than that. It will be nice to play in front of the home crowd.

In other news, there will be a segment about me this Friday on Global News, Channel 3 in Ontario, between 6 and 7pm. The segment is a part of a series called Generation Inspiration. More about that after the show airs.

This Saturday, I will be attending the Chess in the Library 2nd Annual Festival. Chess in the Library (CITL) is one of the most positive organizations ever seen in Canada and it promotes chess programs in libraries across Canada. CITL keeps expanding due to the great work of its members.
