May 1, 2010  I ran the fifth annual middle school chess tournament for Denton ISD. It should have been the sixth annual, but last year's was not held due to the swine flu scare.  On May 4, a front page story appeared with results from the event. This year, only one other team (Calhoun Middle School) sent players to compete. I am the volunteer chess teacher at Strickland Middle School, and Strickland hosted the tournament this year. The 13 players played four rounds, and Strickland Middle School players finished in the top three individual places. We also won 18.5-9.5 in points accumulated by our team's individual players. We had a one player advantage, as Calhoun sent six players and we had seven players. Congrats Strickland!

And for the chess-player the success which crowns his work, the great dispeller of sorrows, is named "combination."
