The Edmonton International starts tonight and finishes Monday. My prediction is that GM Josh Friedel will be the winner. Top Albertan will be a toss up between IM Proper and Eric Hansen but I will go with Hansen. I'll go out on a limb and pick young Keith MacKinnon to be the top Saskatchewan player.
In conjunction with the international, the annual WBX (weekend before Christmas) team tournament will also occur. I may as well pick a winner here to. As there is no Sask teams this year (as far as I know) I will pick the Wang brothers team (if they are able to find a third). If they don't get a team then my second choice is Vlad's Rekhson's team.
I may be able to take in some of the games on Sunday as I will to be in Edmonton for my daughter's swimming competition.
