Eldon at The Bean

Eldon in Chicago, in Front of Cloud Gate

We apologize for the late report, but are happy to report that Eldon Nakagawa, local scholastic superstar, went to Chicago last weekend to participate in the Chicago Open. Eldon had an awesome result in the U2100 section, scoring six wins and only one loss, good enough for equal 2nd place and $1850.00 in prize money! His result has bumped his USCF rating up to 2079!

Eldon sent in a picture of himself at The Bean, aka Cloud Gate.  Check out the wikipedia entry on this interesting sculpture.  He also forwarded his favorite game from the tournament, a stylish last-round victory.

Check out the official Chicago Open site for crosstables, etc. Well done, Eldon!
