No more privacy

It used to be when you were upset by a lower rated player you could largely take your lumps in private. Sure, a couple of other players at the club might rib you for a week or so and in extreme (though rare) circumstances you might find the game published in a club newsletter or local chess magazine. Not anymore!

At the National High School Championship in Milwaukee, BCC member and National Master Chris Williams was defeated by Illinois grade-schooler Eric Rosen. Not only was the game broadcast live at MonRoi, but Williams had the misfortune of facing the son of blogger Chessdad64. Quite reasonably, a proud parent thought his son's achievement worthy of a post.

Now that the game has entered the blogosphere, there's no looking back -- this cat is out of the bag.
