  • Fear in Chess and How to Overcome It Part Two: The Fried Liver

  • A lallapalooza of a tactics puzzle -- It's a doozie

    Okay, now when I say Doozie, of course I mean for someone who is my level.   It's a bit tricky, however, so don't underestimate it.   This is thanks to Gunners2004.  A born teacher, "Guns" knows I love tactics and will send me one from time ... | Leggi tutto

  • On Teaching Chess

    One of the things I enjoy doing is teaching others. I am an investor by nature, my father described me this way when I was young this way: "If you give him a nickle, he will save a dime". I enjoy the idea that if I defer self gratification now, I ... | Leggi tutto

  • Rook Endings: Lasker 1925

    I love finding Endgame positions which look almost identical, but a subtle difference gives a totally different result.   I hit upon these two positions by Emmanuel Lasker composed in 1925 (positions 22 and 23 from the Encyclopadia of Chess End... | Leggi tutto

  • Tactics Puzzle: Derived from a real game

    This was a position that came up in a blitz game I played here on Chess.com. After I played this game, I felt this would make a good tactic puzzle. I had just sacrificed a knight on f5. Can you find the correct continuation?  | Leggi tutto

    I yawn and snuggle into my clothes, trying to stay awake. It will be getting dark soon. I hear a twig snap over to my right and look around from my vantage point 20 feet up in a tree. Nothing, I think. Then, right as I am about to fall asleep, m... | Leggi tutto
