Blogging's a Carnival

A “blog carnival” is an online event in which posts on a common topic from different blogs are brought together in one place for the convenience and delectation of readers. It’s pretty common in the blogosphere, but not in chess—until now. Enterprising blogger Jack Le Moine has just put together the first chess blog carnival. See it here.

In other news, IM Angelo Young, the defending Illinois state chess champion, beat FM Aleksandar Stamnov in round three of this year’s Illinois Open, and with a score of 3.0/3.0 is now tied for first place with FM Andrew Karklins. The tournament is taking place all weekend at the Fairfield Inn & Suites in Lombard. Get the latest developments from Tim Just’s Chess for Life.
