New Blog

I have decided to continue this blog under a different name - Fiore Chess Blog.

Be advised I will continue to cover Minnesota events, in addition to those in South Dakota and Iowa. As you will note, they will be covered under the Sibley Chess Club domain.

Thank you for visiting this blog...I encourage you to follow us at the new site.

2010 Final Four of College Chess

March madness is over but four teams are jousting for the prestigious President's Cup, otherwise known as the Final Four of College Chess. The teams competing are University of Maryland Baltimore County, University of Texas at Dallas, Texas Tech University and University of Texas at Brownsville and Texas Southmost College (UTB/TSC).

The event is being held at UTB/TSC located at Brownsville, Texas. To learn more read History of Chess in Brownsville or download the Final Four program guide.

Games from the event can be viewed individually at (registration required) or on this blog by clicking 2010 Final Four. The official page is found at 2010 President's Cup.

Frank Johnson Games from 2010 MN Open

I finally found the pgn code for blogs and figured it out to make it functional. There were several to choose from, but I was looking for one which allowed multiple games to be listed under one board/viewer.

Please check out the games played by Frank Johnson at the 2010 Minnesota Open. He also did some great video analysis which I also linked to this blog. Enjoy the Johnson Games by clicking the link or under the blog pages area.
