      Another good day of working on the chess. Not enough time to do everything I wanted (I only made moves on a few of my correspondence games and did some tactics), but I still was able to spend some time on it. 10/16 on tactics gave me a slightly im... | Read More

      Sadly, no full games of chess today. I'm playing my correspondence games very slowly, though that is not keeping me completely blunder free. In one of my games my opponent just had a nice series of queen moves that will win my bishop. In tactics ... | Read More
