However, I will not take much credit, as the last few seasons, I have played only occasionally, when I was home from school in New York. Last year, I only played one game. This year however, I definitely plan on playing most of the matches.
Last night, we started the season with a 3-1 win over the veteran team MetLife. On board 1, Nick Kleszczewski upset our Ashok Gandhi. On Board 2, our Joel Hernandez, who was making his league debut, defeated the league's president Phil Lehpamer. On Board 3, your loyal blogger defeated Ralph Frisch( see game below). On Board 4, our Vladimir Gramagain defeated Vladimir Steshenko.
