  • My St. Pauli Open Round 4-6

    In round 4 my gameplan was to play it safe in the opening and wait for blunders. I played it too safe though and missed the chance to cash in early. Instead my opponent got a good position and grinded me down. Round five was hard work again even... | Read More

  • More lucky than good at 960

    I've entered and won two of the regularly-scheduled (1600 server time on Tuesdays) 960 events at FICS, for being more lucky than good, though it's always fun to beat the #1 seed. Annotating this game, I wondered how White achieved a 2300 rating. ... | Read More

  • Picking Apart the Alapin

    The Alapin is one of white's most annoying anti-sicilian tries. He immediately supports the advance to d4 while waiting to see where black develops his pieces. A very versatile and sneaky opening, the Alapin has a devoted following amongst both to... | Read More

  • Playing Too Quickly

    This was a win, and my opponent was a good player.  But there were a couple of places where he moved very quickly - both in spots that got him in trouble.  Time control was 15/10. EDIT: On move 12, my notes should say 'Fritz preferred Qf6.' | Read More

  • So vs. Sevian, US Championship 2015 0-1

    This series is all about classic master games, which I, a 2000 rated USCF player, will attempt to annotate. The game So vs. Sevian, US Championship 2015, was not only a very exciting game but was also important on theoretical grounds. The predes... | Read More

  • The Imposer

    Back in the early 2000s, I was listening to a Sam Ford blitz game in the skittles room at a Chicago Open and he slammed down a bishop on d6, paralyzing black's d7 pawn and several corresponding pieces and declared, "Bam. That's an imposer."   M... | Read More

  • Early h3 vs the King's Indian

    Since I usually open with 1.c4 or 1.Nf3 or 1.d4 I see a lot of King's Indians. One of the approaches that I have thought deserves more attention by white players is to find ways to avoid an early push to d5. By maintaining tension across d4/e5 bla... | Read More
