Prize Winner: New Year’s Chess Blitz Extravaganza

  Greetings Chess Players. My name is Chris Torres and this is my daily chess musing for January 11, 2021.

It’s always a pleasure to hear from fans who love playing in our events as much as I love running them. Recently, I was sent a video of Austin Tran opening the purchase he made with the gift card from American Chess Equipment he won during the New Years Eve Blitz Chess Extravaganza.

I want to thank Austin Tran for sharing the fun of winning a chess prize with our Daily Chess Musings Community. It is players such as Austin Tran who have helped make the Daily Chess Musings club what we are today. In fact, I would love to keep featuring Daily Chess Musings club member created content on this series so if you have a short chess video, photo or artwork to share that you think would inspire our community, feel free to send it to DailyChessMusings@gmail.com.
