Eric Schiller vs Ted Castro

October 3, 2011

Eric Schiller had a rough time of it at this year’s U.S.C.F. National G/30 Chess Championship. Because he is a gentleman and a scholar, I felt bad about publishing one of his losses. I hope reposting this win over Ted Castro will improve his mood.

United States G/30 National Chess Championship

October 2, 2011

California is set to host the U.S. G/30 Chess Championship on October Second, 2011. Having a U.S.C.F. National Championship in the Bay Area is a rare treat and many of my chess students are eager to win another national title. I will report live from the Santa Clara Convention Center and provide complete coverage of this exciting chess tournament.
