    Thad Rogers has been trying to get a team (Atlanta Kings) into the U.S. Chess League for next year. He has talked to almost all our top players and they want to do this. The US Chess League has posted an online poll. It looks like anybody can vote. So, please go to that site and cast your vote in favor of Atlanta getting into the league next year.

    Go to and simply scroll down to "Poll" on lefthand side and cast a vote. So far Atlanta is leading!

I can tell you right up front that one way to lose to a kid you should beat is to believe there is absolutely, positively no way you can lose to him. Confidence is good.
