    • Winning is the thing, I see it now!

      I played all my life for fun and friends but always thought i could be better, but something held me back. I see now, the desire to win forces all attention to this goal and results in playing at the best/ highest levels of thought. As i've read "... | Read More

    • Time to get Serious....Really

      I took a break and now im back. What i've discovered was my love of the game but my lack of seriousness. When i see players with ratings in excess of 1800, i see how far i have to go and the realization i will probably never take the time to stud... | Read More

    • Chessboard (Perspective).

      Is there something about chessboards and human perspective which could explain why some boards annoy me. Other than saying the board hurts my eyes and just irratates me, Is there a scientific reason for this or is it me. | Read More

    • Talk to Me (Chat link)

      I would like to know the best way to invite others to use the chat link. My idea is a series of non rated games played at the sametime vs the same player with the chat feature used to help improve my game and hopefully theirs. I enjoy the connecti... | Read More

    • Small Circle Defense

      I utilize the Small Circle Defense (...p-k3, ...p-q3). I don't know where or how i discovered this defense, but it seems a combination of the French, Caro-Kann, and Sicilian. My question- advantage vs deception! Give up the center and form a coun... | Read More

    • Mindset

      What is the proper mindset for chess? Do i focus on winning throughout the game or are there ups and downs, moments of indecision? Can someone lend a hand? Is there some secret? | Read More

    • Afraid to Win?

      In reviewing my matches, I've come to a conclusion- I am afraid to win! Yes, it's true. Why is another matter. How can i win 5 to 6 matches in a row against players one to two hundred points higher in ratings, yet lose games i should have won. Mor... | Read More

    • Offensively Defensive!

      It's said, defense doesen't win games, offense does! Yet how about an old twist of perspective? I have a mind set towards passive defense, resulting in losses where after analysis indicated advantage was in my favor. Revamp my mind, and my game. T... | Read More
