  • Hall of Shame

    Hi. I post games here, played against abusive players on FICS. The FICS staff is not helpful in those cases. I am a friendly guy with feelings. If you treat me like a dirt bag, welcome to the Hall of Shame. | Read More

  • Two More Games

    Just thought I'd post my latest slow games here. The first one I had the white pieces in a Falkeer Countergambit. I messed up the opening, but managed to claw my way back to an equal position, only to mess up an admittedly tricky tactic. My seco... | Read More

  • The Four C's - Ruy Lopez

    I felt it a good idea to examine one of the oldest openings in chess, the Ruy Lopez (or Spanish Game), using the Four C's approach. The idea is to get a sense of where the pieces want and need to move in this particular opening. As we know the f1 ... | Read More
