Re: Chess

My first sanctioned match was just scheduled for next month at the Westfield (NJ) Chess Club. There will be 26 participants with the preliminary round consisting of two games, one white and one black, determined in the aggregate.

The initial pairings have been finalized - I think I am in trouble. At first glance all appeared well and it appeared to be certain victory for me. My opponent? Some 12 year old juvenile from Metuchen. The problem arose once I began to read the accompanying biography. The individual in question, hereafter referred to as IQ out of an abundance of caution and for the sake of brevity and privacy concerns, is a "Top-Tier Junior - National Master, Candidate Master (norms based)", according to the U.S. Chess Federation ranking.

Bottom line? This is not going to end well for me. I am admittedly floating this information out there well ahead of time as a trial balloon so the inevitable attacks withering assaults call it what you will from you people will be expected and, thus, easier to handle. I know where I stand in the eyes of pretty much everyone on this board and I am ready, willing, and able to defend myself against the brutal assault you are going to launch against my person after I get annihilated by IQ as sure as the sun rises in the eastern sky. I am no shrinking violet understand that.
