  • Requiem for a Romantic

    Chess is a reflection of life. Our modern lives go faster and so too do the time controls we play today. When I tell kids that I played the so-called Capablanca's time control (two hours and 30 minutes for the first 40 moves) and then the game wou... | Read More

  • Q&A with Coach Heisman Aug 17, 2013

    On today's show the great majority of questions involved getting better at chess, and most involved openings (with a smattering of endgames thrown in). I think many players have this "improvement model" in their head where they memorize an opening... | Read More

  • Learn beneficial openings to improve in chess

  • Q&A with Coach Heisman May 24, 2013

    Right after the show tonight my wife and I ran out for the 3-D showing of Star Trek: Into Darkness. It was a good movie - we've come a long way in portraying science fiction on the big screen. Ironically I started watching Star Trek about the sam... | Read More

    • Why the Caro Kann is perfection in Black

      New players have a lot of things to learn when they come to chess in their early days of playing. I recall the 'fights' over "cheating" with enpassant pawns and 'ah-idiot; you castled the "wrong" way, thats the Queens' side'... With so many thing... | Read More
