Yermo is on the road again and finishing off 2014 the same way he did last year, in Las Vegas, playing in the North American Open. You can watch the live games or see what Stockfish has to say about Yermo's games at:

Yermo opted out of the cheap airline prices to Vegas and  took long way, first stopping in Lubbock, Texas  to see his friend Onischuk. Alexander Onischuk is the Coach of the Chess  Club of Texas Tech University, known as the Knight Raiders. Then on to Arizona to visit with his friend and former student Danny Rensch.


 Alex finished tied for 2nd with 3 others a point and a half behind the red hot Wesley So from Minnesota.
