FM Tom Bartell in Chicago
I have annotated two nice games by New Jersey FM Tom Bartell from the 11th North American FIDE Invitational in Chicago, May 17-23, where he finished tied for 4th and likely missed an IM norm only due to a last round loss.
Tom will be giving a simultaneous exhibition at the Kenilworth Chess Club on Thursday, May 29, beginning at 8:30 p.m. The cost is $10. More details are available at the KCC Minutes blog.
More information about the North American FIDE Invitational can be found at the North American Chess Association site. Games from the event can be found at the Monroi site and all of Tommy's games at The Chess Coroner's site.
