Choose Wesley

I Choose Wesley

Okay, seriously, doesn’t that flame on the left look like a chess Bishop, and the flame on the right look like a chess Knight?

“Fortune and Glory, Wes. Fortune and Glory”  In a thrilling tiebreaker, Wesley So was crowned US Champion yesterday.  Dennis McGrath of the Star Tribune has chronicled many of Wesley’s tournaments, click here for his latest article.  Wesley So is a humble and gracious ambassador to chess, and a glowing inspiration for the chess community worldwide, and also here in Minnesota.  In just over a week, Wesley will be off to his next event, the Gashimov Memorial as his incredible unbeaten streak of 67 will be put to the test again.  Yes, 67 games! Wesley is a source of unspeakable power, and it has to be researched.  We have top men working on it right now.  Top…men.

Congratulations on your most recent success Wesley, the MSCA is behind you and your endeavors.  You win your games like you win over crowds with your charm and grace.  Play On!
