Upcoming events

Italian president Sergio Mattarella congratulating world and Olympiad champion Michele Borghetti on his successful 2015 title defense against the challenger Lubabulo Kondlo of South Africa.

The three move world qualifier will be held on June 9-12th in Rome, Italy. This will be tightly contested by at least five world champion level competitors for the right to challenge Borghetti in 2017. The United States 3 move Nationals will be held July 27-30 in Branson, MO. Prize is currently $15,025 plus a couple thousand for the master's division from the Gene Lindsey fund.

The following ICF representatives are expected to be attending the United States Nationals: myself, Alfredo Mercado, Eric Strange and Lorne Wells. I will retire after the nationals. Everyone under the jurisdiction of the ICF should now report to Eric Strange after I retire. Farewell speech:

I have achieved everything I wanted in mind sports and it's time to go dominate elsewhere in life. Starting out at a young age in the Hmong style and learning from the likes of Russian Grandmaster Vladimir Kaplan, I eventually switched over and went on to dominate the American style for over a decade. I have nothing left to prove anymore, it's time to go on and improve myself in other areas.

Should Chee "The Investigator" Xiong be allowed to just investigate anyone?
