The 38 years-old Toronto, Canada based Calvelo, who work as Aircraft Winder and technician at the Canada International Aviation Inc., is schedule to play in the upcoming Mayor's Cup International Open Chess Championship on November 11 and 12 in Buffalo, New York, USA followed by Mississauga International Open Chess Championship on December 1 to 3, 2017 in Mississauga, Ontario Canada.
