Abby Marshall wins Denker High School

Hi everybody!

I just won my first game at the
US-open. It feels a little weird to play serious chess again after such a long break.

Last night I gave a simul here in Indianapolis. I played against 17 opponents, drew three games, won 14, with no losses. The final score was +14=3-0. I will post more photos and games of this event soon.

One of my opponent in the simul was Abby Marshall

who a few days ago won the Denker Tournament of High School Chess Champions becoming the first female chess-player to do so in 25 years! My heartfelt congratulations to Abby!

You can read her article about the way to the top on the official website of the
United States Chess Federation (USCF), here.
