  • Men, Women and Nigel Short

    Much to my amazement, chess has hit the front pages of the mainstream media for the third time in a fortnight. This time, however, it's more a case of old wine in a new bottle. The always controversial English GM Nigel Short has come under the s... | Leggi tutto

  • Montana Open - Round 4

    Round 4 was perhaps the toughest one of the tournament. My opponent had a much lower rating, but he was a solid player who caught me napping and drew first blood when I left a center pawn hanging. That woke me up fast, and we went into a 70-plus ... | Leggi tutto

  • Montana Open - Round 2 (fun with the From's Gambit)

    Round 2 was against Dan McCourt, and I was eager to try out my Bird's opening against him because I knew it would likely lead to a From's Gambit. The From's is an aggressive response to the Bird's that challenges white to a game of "chicken"; mos... | Leggi tutto
