  • The Secrets Of The Berlin Endgame

    "Every time the Berlin endgame shows up on the board," GM Vladimir Kramnik remarked a few weeks ago, "everyone starts to cry quietly, [because] such positions are boring. However, games are often full of exciting play, although there are... | Read More

  • Pandolfini's Puzzler #74: The Last Class

    Professor: Hello, class. They all greeted the professor as if saying goodbye. Professor: Don't look so glum. Rachel: Isn't this the last class? Zephyr: All good things come to an end. Lucian: Do they have to? Wei: Yes, but each ending ... | Read More

  • The Modern Defense: A History

    Like the Kan/Paulsen, the so-called "Modern Defense" is an opening with many names. When I first met it, as a beginning chess player, I knew it as the "Robatsch Defense." It has also been called the Ufimtsev Defense, the Kotov Defense, the Pi... | Read More

  • Reaping The Whirlwind!

    When I was still playing in tournaments I answered 1.e4 with various Sicilian lines (Richter-Rauzer, Accelerated Dragon, Paulsen and Taimanov systems, etc.) and the Caro-Kann. I always loved the Caro-Kann, and at the end of my career it became m... | Read More

  • Serendipity Leads to Fischer and Beyond

          I had stumbled across the archived "New York Times" obituary notice for Edmar Mednis (February 22, 2002, by Dylan Loeb McClain).  The obit, of course, reviews his life, but pivots on the point that, although Mednis (pictured left in 19... | Read More


    • Is this merely a case of chance/luck, or intuition?

      Hi all. Here today, I have a brief example of a three-minute blitz game I recently played. In this particular match, I (once again) initially gave in to making some of the "comfortable" moves I'm all-too-familiar with, and even though it potentia... | Read More

    • New Peak Rating! - Part 2

      So here's the second part.  I lost my fifth game, before giving up for the night. I'd had enough and decided I need a rest. Poor play, but luckily the rest did some good, as I won the next 3 games straight. Here's the first of that run. The... | Read More

    • HRSCC Christmas Quads

      Round 1 of the Hampton Roads Scholastic Chess Club (HRSCC) Christmas Quads. Spent more time than I should have in the opening over-analyzing every move. More than three years since I have played OTB in these time controls. (I've only played once i... | Read More

    • Inspiration #5: 10...Qxb3!

      It is a rare thing to see a strong GM fall prey to a queen sacrifice. It is far rarer to see a strong GM lose in 10 moves. Both of these sad fates befell GM Qun Ma against Danny Raznikov in the Groningen Open. This game is a wonderful reminder of... | Read More

    • lebesgue72 vs. DrHoward: Queen's pawn game: 12/25/14

      This is a queen's pawn game I played a few days ago. I had trouble finding a coherent plan. I got my light-squared bishop fianchettoed, the kingside knight didn't do very much all game, besides provide support for my d4 pawn, and my queenside knig... | Read More
