  • Pandolfini's Puzzler #73: Three vs. Two

    Professor: It's good to see you, class.  The kids didn't say much. A few of them even looked sad.  Professor: Why so pale and wan, if I may ask? Rachel: Well, the semester's coming to an end.  Professor: That's true. But you've all learned... | Read More

  • Overprotection, Decoded

    The concept of overprotection, invented and verbalized by Nimzowitsch in My System, is defined by IM Jeremy Silman as "a strategically important pawn or square that is given more protection than it seemingly needs. Essentially a prophylactic ... | Read More

    • A New Opening or A Series of Blunders?

      That was a pretty sloppy game between garrykasparovv101, who's rating was around 1000 and ajm340 who's rating was about 1100. As you see, Garry Kasparov, as he calls himself, used an "opening" that is "unofficial" and might be considered "a serie... | Read More
