Created to help Chess players improve, expand and challenge their knowledge of the game, Mind's Eye Press offers a myriad of resources to assist everyone---from novices to more experienced students---in their quest to become a better player.
I am very pleased to announce that the Aloha Math Company in Frazer, PA at 17 Ravine Road, is going to allow us to start running not only tournaments, but also a chess club as well! The club, still to be named, will start with a meeting on February 15 from 7 to 10. Meetings will occur on most Mondays, with a full schedule to be set soon. This is a social club, so you may arrive and leave at anytime. There should be a wide variety of players, so feel free to stop in and enjoy some games.
This club (you can see pictures of it elsewhere on the site) will be hosting the State Blitz Championship on July 14 and the State Championship July 20 - 21. You can sign up for these events under products.
If you have any questions, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 484-948-5692.

Congratulations to our participants and winners!
Sunday July 29, 2012 Sunday evening saw the end of the 2012 Philadelphia Junior Invitational, hosted by Chestnut Hill College. This event brings together the top eight scholastic players from the Philadelphia region. All of whom are in the top 3% of juniors in the entire country!
By luck of the draw, the two highest rated players, Andrew Ng and Rahul Swaminathan, had played, and drawn, on the first night. This allowed two first time participants, Josh Hernandez – Camen and Greg Whitehorn, to take the early lead. By the end of the second round Josh, one of three 13 year olds, found himself in clear first, being the only person to win his first two games.
As the rounds progressed, the four highest rated players began to separate themselves from the bottom four. As is common in a round robin event, where everyone plays everyone, the stronger players mostly drew against each other and beat the weaker players. The weaker players aim for draws against the stronger players and to beat each other. This is largely what happened, as neither the winner, Andrew, nor the second place finisher, Rahul lost a game.
The third and fourth place finishers, Yuhao Xu and Chris Yang, each lost one game and won two. Josh and Nathaniel Kolo, finished fifth and sixth respectively. Gregory Whitehorn lost several close games and beat the tail ender to finish seventh, and Kimberly Ding finished last. The tournament benefitted from great support from local Chestnut Hill businesses, the Chestnut Hill Business Association, Chestnut Hill College and the Dan Heisman Chess Support Fund. The Junior Invitational is in their debt, and we hope for and look forward to their continued support in 2013.
Mind's Eye Press would like to extend thanks to the Dan Heisman Chess Support Fund for all the assistance in making our tournaments such a success!
