Chess Tournament


Yesterday my daughter competed in her first ever chess tournament. What made this a cool experience was that it was an all girls tournament. (Thanks again, Tracey!!) Darian competed with girls from as far away as Portland, we had an hour's drive from our home to Olympia. She played five rounds in six hours and though she was exhausted by the end, she was able to keep on her game face.

The child kept her cool for so long, we are thinking of teaching her Texas Hold'em so she can win us some cash at poker tournaments.

And how was YOUR weekend?

    Yay Darian! She looks like she's thinking 3 moves ahead, for sure. :)

    Way to go Darian! I can't even stay focused on chess for 5 minutes.

    That is some serious chess face right there. Way to go Darian, you make us all jealous of your skills!
