Two items: How's the Thursday Knighter, and a link of interest

Every Thursday night has been busy for me this month, so I have not had a chance to visit, let alone play for this month's Thursday Knighter. Does anyone have an update on this month? (Add a comment or email me.)

Second, I added a link for the US Chess League on the side. For those who haven't heard about it, it is an Internet-only league played by teams across the country. The first round of the new season will begin this evening, Monday, August 27.

Some GMs play, including Nakamura, as well as Minnesota's own IM John Bartholomew. John will be playing Board 2 as Black this coming Wednesday, August 29th.

Check out this new chess website: Gambetto

I was just apprised of a new chess website this morning, called Gambetto, put together by Dan Bennett. Please take some time to visit. I am impressed with the layout, and heck, he has an area called Tal's Tactics! What's not to like?
