Unhealthy Chess

I've been home sick the last couple of days, not even playing on ICC. That should make for an interesting match if I'm ready to compete against an IM in the DC chess league tomorrow night. The one good omen about this possible game is that I have a pretty good record when playing with a fever in the past. In college I won the first board prize at Amateur Team North one year after missing a week of classes with the flu. Even earlier, when a fever hit in the middle of a tournament I was still  in contention for first place, so I played on Sunday morning. The game wasn't too bad.

Despite a shot at prize money, I withdrew after the game and spent the next few days in bed.
