Blind Chess Copy May 2020

Thinking of ways to make use of that stimulus payment…However you plan you use yours, I kindly suggest setting some proper fiscal standards.  Need a starting point?  Repeat after me:

  • I will not invest brand new car unless it contains a dedicated compartment for my sunglasses and face mask.
  • I will not invest on a future dwelling unless I can open the doors without having to touch a door knob.
  • I will invest in the MSCA Online Swiss this Saturday where GM Andrew Tang and IM Thomas Beerdsen have signed up to play.

For less than 2 percent of your stimulus, prepare to be over 100 percent satisfied with this online tournament being held this Saturday.  There is also an U1200 section, with prizes in both sections.

If you are more of a chess spectator than a chess player, then plan for May 24th.  A reboot of the old Minnesota vs Manitoba matches will take place online through lichess.  The main commentator will be NM Frank Johnson via Twitch, along with Theo Wolock and NM Mike Fellman. John Bartholomew’s channel will be hosting as well.  Further information can be found below in the links.  This has been your Blind Chess Copy, May 2020.  Thank you all for your time
