Entertaining Odyssey-Tribute to Chernev

I purposely tried to be creative and a wee bit entertaining in my notes.

In this 3 minute game I drew on my early memory of Irving Chernevs book " Logical Chess Move By Move and emulated his teachings.

I also used the tip I got from former Australian Chess Champion Fred Flatow, who told me.."Just put your pieces on the correct square each move and everything will fall into place" Yes easier said than done, but I think I may have done Fred proud.

    And chess can be applied to literature, a flexible story generator. (Tolkein?)

    unfortunately my own games are often tragedies atm.
