  • Adolf Anderssen's Belief Regarding Sacrifices

      One of the themes of Adolf Anderssen's game that I have followed for quite some time is speedy and quick development.  Adolf Anderssen believed that as long as this goal was acheived, potential for extremely potent attacks exist.  I recently ... | Leggi tutto

    Here is a recent 3 min blitz game of mine in dutch defense. I annotated the game. If you have ideas for improvement or any question about misteries parts of the game, share it with me.   At move 17 it was way more better to play Rd8, white is... | Leggi tutto

  • My introduction to chess.

    I learned to play chess in the workplace. It seemed that at my station all I had to do was display a chess set and players would appear like magic! I was never very good at it, but I soon discovered that the comeraderie associated with the game wa... | Leggi tutto

    I played my first tournament this past weekend since my break about two months ago.  My games are definitely starting to be more positional but my familiarity with the minor pieces still leaves a lot to be desired. My first game was against one ... | Leggi tutto

  • Seattle Seafair Open

    The Seattle Seafair Open is, of course, the largest SCC tournament each year. I entered the 2 day schedule with a ~1360 rating. (The USCF screwed up, taking 10 days to rate the ECO so it would not affect my rating this month!) In the first round I... | Leggi tutto

  • July 24, 2015 (KIA)

    This is the first lunch hour game I'd played in a week, I guess, and knowing I was playing in two simuls the next day, and would have White in both games, I decided to practice my favorite opening.  I won this one, but, as will be seen later, it... | Leggi tutto

  • July 18, 2015 (KID)

    This game is from a simul with NM Kanthecarowin.  I was actually up 2 pawns, but I panicked on move 39 and made a couple of unsound sacrifices, thinking I needed to do something desperate, when in fact, I was much better and probably would have w... | Leggi tutto

    Don't know whether this idea actually works or not but White could have certainly won the game with the obvious 19. Rc3. | Leggi tutto

  • The thing with the "ideal center"

    I can still remember when I've started to study openings in chess group at school, to improve my chess skills. The first thing I've had to learn was the meaning of the four central squares (e4, e5, d4 and d5).From there it didn't take much time to... | Leggi tutto
