I’m Ready to Play Today

Although I enjoy replaying games, such as those from the Tuesday Night Marathon at the Mechanics Institute in San Francisco (https://www.chessbomb.com/arena/2021-tuesday-night-marathon-september), and the current European Senior Championships (50+ and 65+)(https://live.followchess.com/#!european-senior-50-2021)(https://live.followchess.com/#!european-senior-65-2021), a recent picture has caused me to long for a chance to be at the Chess board, to gut, or be gutted, as Brian McCarthy was so fond of saying. I would even be happy with a draw…

Senior day at the Atlanta Chess Club & Scholastic Center

The bald gentleman with the goatee on the immediate right is Parnell Watkins, who is running unopposed for the office of President of the Georgia Chess Association. You can read about Mr. Watkins in a previous post: https://xpertchesslessons.wordpress.com/2019/05/17/the-dirty-laundry-of-atlanta-chess/

Then the weekly email from Gene Nix in Greenville, South Carolina was received which included this:

The 82nd SC Championship tournament will be in Columbia October 30-31. Details are online at US Chess and SCCA ( https://www.scchess.org/index.php/events-calendar/year.listevents/2021/09/01/- )

The following weekend will be the 13th Annual Klaus Pohl Memorial SC Senior Open here in Greenville! Details: https://www.scchess.org/index.php/events-calendar/year.listevents/2021/09/01/-

Reading the above again caused me to think about something Brian often said, “Just get me to the round on time!”
