Between Chess and God

I always thought that the holidays would be exciting, filled with opportunities and chances to do stuff I never had time for.

Dead wrong...I'm actually starting to miss school
Anyway, I had two chess events today and yesterday.

Yesterday, I fought the candidate master and chess coach Collin Madhavan(FIDE rating: 2220) in an simultanious round and WON somewhere in the endgame. To be fair to him, he was actually fighting 25 fairly strong players at the same time but I still think that this was an achievement worth mentioning(to the 3 or 4 people who actually read my blog)

Today, I also had another Chess Competiton which I walked away as the Champion after winning all 5 games in a row. The God(or Goddess) of Luck seems to be smiling upon me as I rose from the dead 3 times from totally drawn(or lost) positions. Call it Luck, or call it skill...I honestly don't know

Is This Thing On??

Today, I am proud to say that I played UNO cards and all day long. Our Discipline Master confistated several chess sets already (for some reason between himself and God) so I felt somewhat unable to visit the next class and challenge their champion to a game of chess (for money-lah) .

Nevertheless, as stated above, I played UNO cards for almost the entire day and had several disputes with other players about the rules of the game, which happens to differ from place to place.

A sure sign of boredom...

Freedom Eternal

I fear not Death but Eternal Life,
for Life is nought but pain & suffering,
and Death the Eternal Freedom.
