Happy Birthday, Carnival!

That's a wrap!

Welcome to the December 5, 2011 edition of chess improvement carnival. Some great stuff, and as a Christmas gift I was very inclusive in accepting stuff that was submitted.

This is the last Carnival I am going to be involved with. I appreciate everyone taking the time to participate by submitting articles, hosting carnivals, etc..

You have provided a lot of great content the past year, and Warheit is going to be taking the baton from me, so be sure to stay tuned to his blog, and comments section here, for updates on what is going on. He showed his unflagging enthusiasm for chess by making three submissions this month. Wow!

Congrats on having the idea, on sustaining it for a year, and on closing it gracefully. I'm sure you'll let us know if someone takes up your offer to carry on. - Mark
