I'm posting the picture of my birthday cake in order to share it with my readers. I want to thank several people for posting Happy Birthday messages on their websites yesterday, I read them all. I want to thank three people in particular, Chivas68 and Nibaldo Calvo for taking time to send me a message from their blogs. However, I want to thank GM Susan Polgar for posting a message yesterday on my blog. I realize that she had her own sister's birthday to take care of, Sofia Polgar, yet she still took the time to send me best wishes.
I don't care what they say about GM Susan Polgar but she is my friend and has advanced girls chess in the United States and that is a good thing. Thanks Susan!
Now that I am 12 years old, in 7-weeks I will be moving to North Texas, Wichita Falls, Texas to be exact. I have been in training for 5-years and I have only played in 13-USCF rated events in 4-years, well that is about to end. The first half of 2010, I will be playing in about 13 rated events in the Dallas Chess Club and every other club that has a tournament. My goal is to catch-up with the other high rated girls in my category quickly.
I anticipate at least a 300 point increase in the first 90-days of participating in touraments in Texas. I was limited before because of living in the U.S-Mexican border region far away from any chess clubs, not anymore.
Hope to see you all soon!
