A cause well worth supporting. I'd be tempted to play in this but we've got a lunch and then my niece's birthday so won't be able to.

Hope it all goes well, Michael, and best of luck in Greece!

This tournament went very well with there being 65 players, in two different age group sections. A lot of money was raised that day with me and Bobby Cheng playing 1 to 5 minute games and playing our real tournament game 1 to 15 depending on the amount they paid. It went very well and me and Bobby didn't lose a single match. It all came down to the showdown when I played Bobby and unfortunately I lost.

Thanks to David Cordover and Chess Kids for organizing this event, thanks to Frank and Bobby Cheng for supporting me, thanks also all players and parents who donated money and/or played in the tournament and also a special thanks to Elliot Renzies who publicized this event by posting the tournament here and interviewing me.
