    There are several other quick notes which I would like to add before the weekend comes around and I simply vanish into thin air as expected. First of all, I would like to confirm my participation in the BN Bank Blitz in Oslo, Norway this upcoming November. I first heard about this event back at the end of the NH Rising Stars event, but held off on any firm decisions until I was fully recovered health wise. Having decided that I am not playing the world cup due to the scheduling conflict with the tournament in London, this event will fit nicely into my schedule. As I have no tournaments scheduled between mid October until London in December, this should be a good warm up event for me, and I look forward to it. From Norway, I will probably go to London and see some friends there until the tournament gets started on the 7th of December.

    Second, I have also decided to teach the very talented Seattle junior Michael Lee. Having seen his play over the past few years, Michael is one of the more talented juniors I have seen in the US. As he resides in Seattle and I am now living here for good, it should definitely be an interesting task ahead of me in getting him to GM. Nevertheless, it should be a great opportunity to give back for all that chess has given me. That’s all for now, have a great weekend everyone!

    1. Cheers,
      I’m just going to step out on a limb and say more blogging of any sort is welcome. 🙂 Good luck on the upcoming tourneys and new position as chess teacher. I have your book “Bullet Chess: One Minute to Mate” on order. I hope Amazon ships it soon!

    2. Michael Lee is damn lucky to have you!

      Good luck in London. Keep some butt!

    4. Welcome to Seattle! It’s great out here!
