Wearing Pink Rebok at the October Chess Fest raising awareness for Breast Cancer. I honor my wife Marie “Tina” Consetta Phillips (with the Lord) and my current wife Sandy Phillips along with my mother Ruby Jones and Eli’s mother (Leila Daquin) with the championship won by my student Eli Karp and I. We beat Grandmaster Varuzan Akobian and NM Nick Matta in the championship Twin Chess game. I dedicate the championship title to these courageous women and their victories over Breast Cancer. Tina has garnered the ultimate victory and is in HIS presence. We won the championship with a perfect 4-0 score. The title and the trophies go to you ladies!


Our Winners!
