Erik Karklins is my hero

The elder Mr. Karklins is 95 years old, and he scored 5-2 this weekend in the Under 2100 section, winning $150!  Erik closed out the event with three straight wins against players with ratings solidly above 1900.

I believe Erik Karklins will now become the top Illinois player over age 65--he's spotting the field thirty years!

Eric Karklins is amazing. He must be one of the strongest 95-year-olds in history.
