U.S. Chess Championship 2010, Introduction

Well, I have a 1. Nf3 post in the making, but my computer broke so it is difficult for me to make posts with pictures etc. I dont think listing off a bunch of 1. Nf3 Nf6 2. c4 etc. etc. will be that helpful or interesting to read, so I am going to change gears for a bit. I do want to make posts that explore my openings more in depth though, so I will finish it at soon as possible. Hopefully my computer will be repaired in about 2 weeks or so.

Instead, I am going to do a series of posts about the U.S. Chess Championships. These posts will largely be me looking over the games, usually without computer analysis, and seeing what I can come up with. It will not be so much in depth and accurate analysis, as it will be exploring what a Class A player can come up with in his brain. Perhaps after a run through without computer analysis, I might double check whatever I come up with, we will have to see.

The other idea behind these posts is to help promote the US Chess Championships, as one of my goals of this blog is to promote chess in the US.

I will leave this post largely as an Introduction sort of Post, and the other posts in this hopefully long and interesting series will be titled "U.S. Chess Championship: ______ v. ______"

Unfortunately, as I said earlier, my computer broke so I am unable to make posts with pictures. Instead, I will be linking to for the games, and will assume that anyone reading my post has the game opened up on that page and can easily go through the various moves. Hopefully, that is not too clunky or inconvenient.

[Edit: A lot of this is moot now, but I will leave it up as a testament to my ability to improve!]
