12-year old Claudia Muñoz will be participating tomorrow at the 4-swiss tournament at the Dallas Chess Club. As it has been noted in this blog, Claudia relocated to Wichita Falls, Texas (her hometown) to be closer to the Dallas area, about a 1.5 hour drive, in order to increase her chess strength as well as rating.
