As you know, I say “dork fest” with all affection :)
The time has come, the curtain will be raised at 1pm, and 1200 or so of us will sit down to do what (by objective measure) we all do so very poorly: Play chess.
As usual I’ll be posting updates and musings on my team’s results, the GMs in attendance, the charms of Parsippany AKA “The Framingham of New Jersey”, and the status of the bathrooms. Follow along with jealously and/or a tinge of nausea. Good times.
Now it’s almost 9am so I better figure out whether I’m playing e4 or d4.
