    • Pressure not to falter

      Below is the fourth game I played (today) for my club in the external competition. The opposing team had some very strong and some weaker players (I think I played one of the weaker ones). We lost all of the first three games to finish (out of a ... | Read More

    • The hitchhiker's guide to throw a way a completely won endgame
