Indiana Blitz and Quick Championships - On March 7, the state championship event for Blitz and Quick was held in South Bend, Indiana!  Congrats to John Cole who was the champion for both the Quick and Blitz tournaments.  The chess world of Indiana is wondering if Cole can be defeated (in state of course)!!  Dennis Monokroussos provided stout competition with a second place finish in both Quick and Blitz.  The open section had a very strong mix of master and expert level players.
