  • Albin theme match

    I can be persuaded to join big clubs (like, say, banks), but it's tough to get me to join a smaller sub-club (like, say, the bank's Christmas program). I joined chess.com years ago, but it took a long time to find a home within the home. The Unso... | Read More

  • Norway Chess 2015 - Round 6

    One of my favourite French expressions is laissez-faire. Definitely not to be applied to chess, as the Frenchman discovered today. Topalov thinks it's 2005 and he's in Argentina, Giri and Aronian rehearsed well and Caruana has problems with outsi... | Read More

  • Another example of why 960 is for thinking chessplayers

    When I login to FICS, I make my seek "Fischer Random, time control 15 minutes plus 10 second increment", and wait. Somedays I don't play at all, because time controls slower than "lightning" or "bullet" aren't popular, and players don't like Fisch... | Read More

  • October 13, 2014 (KIA)

    In this game, I blundered a pawn in the opening, but got it back with interest in the middle game.  My isolated d-pawn became a threat to promote, and was the decisive factor in the end. | Read More

  • Topalov's "Hypnotic Arts" and Norway Chess Day 6

    The title came from a Tweet that I saw (though it was later deleted, I suspect). It made me laugh. Anyways, maybe whoever thought that up was right... Since Magnus gave up on the (low) chances of Hikaru blundering due to exhaustion, he can no lo... | Read More

  • Checkmate by en-passant!

    The title says it all.  The game's standard was probably that of club level, but I was quite proud with the way I managed to limit my opponent's counterplay with good positional moves after he had made some tactical oversights. Enjoy! | Read More
