Luvizminda Machan IX
I played in the Luvziminda Machan open at ChessMates in Rahway NJ. I scored 2-1-1 in the 4 round g/40 d5 tournament. My rating moved up to 1997! I'm now just 3 points away from my goal of a 2000 rating. I lost to Rodion Rubenchik in this tournament on the Black side of a Kings Indian. I did not know the variation played by Rubenchik very well and ended up in a bad situation. This is my chance to learn the opening.
