Some quick notes:
After 6 rounds Eric Hansen is leading the Canadion Championship with 5/6! Keep it up Eric and bring back the trophy.
The candidate matches are also under way but I must admit that without Calsen or Nakamura I don't have much interest.
In my last post, I talked about posting an analysis of a game I played in the Calgary New Year Open - but obviously I haven't done that. My excuss is that it's not that interesting a game anyway.

I also played in the Northern Alberta Open in Feb and I haven't analysed or posted those games either. I went into that tourney knowing that I would skip the final game. My first game was against Keith McKinnon (2351) and I was beaten fairly easily. Next I defeated Richard Roberts (1388). Then I had a good draw with Richard Pua (1982) where I was worse but managed to get into a better position and almost win. My final game was a disappointing loss to Jim Daniluk (2035) where I sacrificed a pawn for an attack but then chickened out. That's what was disappointing.

I have no idea when I will play another OTB game.
