    • A Sharp Two Knights Defense with Black

      This game was rather imbalanced as I was a pawn up from the opening but White had compensation in center control, space advantage and more active pieces. The middlegame was very dynamic. We exchanged a series of mistakes in sharp positions, while ... | Read More

      Almost every e4 player below 1500's favourite opening is the Fried Liver Attack, it has the reputation, it has a funny name, it has everything. Such is the reputation of it that after 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bc4 about 75% of my opponents play h6???... | Read More

    • Philidor's Mate

      This game is not really illustative of anything but a long memory. My opponent blundered early losing a queen for a piece. The reason I am putting this here is that I lost to a Philidor's Mate 30 years ago. It was a tie breaker game for fourth boa... | Read More
