Labor Day tournament was great. 33 showed up.

congratulations to FM Pedram Atoufi for taking down 1st place and the $153 that came with it. Pedram went 5.5/6 with his missing half point from taking a first round half point bye.

launching new club website.

Valley Chess is launching a new website. (not complete yet, but functioning) Took a little bit since I know nothing about building sites and I know zero HTML. Anyway, it's coming along pretty well. Haven't purchased a domain yet, so using google sites for now. Will have a domain in a week or 2 probably.

https://sites.google.com/site/valleychess/

check it out and tell me what you guys think so far.

Post Re: Stockton's Training Journal....The road to the top
I'm back again. Been a really long time. Lots of new stuff I guess. I've stopped playing poker since the shutdown of Full Tilt and PokerStars. Started up a business centered around Starcraft 2 coaching. http://www.hotkeyit.com So I've been really busy with that. Sorta starting to get some time back so I figured I'd jump back into chess again. Haven't looked at a chess board in about a year or so.

I set up a justin.tv account and set up my computer to live stream whenever I am playing online or just studying stuff (or usually a combination). I invite you all to stop by any time. I also stream my Starcraft 2 play so if you want to come hang out and check that out too you are all welcome. I'll try to post here every time I go live with the stream. I think I'll try to talk about the chess stuff as much as possible as to keep it entertaining.

No, I don't play. I don't even own a copy of the game but I do follow the major stuff like GSL, MLG and Dreamhack. Just like to watch it. Much better than most of the stuff the TV channels have to offer :D
Sort of undecided atm. GSL or Fide World Cup.... will probably switch streams every few mins =P

So I played some chess OTB yesterday. 2 wins and 2 losses in a 4 round G/30 Swiss.

I actually ended up winning the under 2000 prize. I didn't play great but I didn't play awful or anything like that. It was a tough field in which I was the 2nd lowest rated player out of 10. So a score of 2/4 isn't bad. I picked up a few rating points, nothing huge but better than losing them.
