  • Saving Chess With The a-Pawn

    The first part of this article has brought a great response and many reader suggestions. But I have a confession to make. It was a totally tongue-in-cheek article and I am surprised that the majority of our readers took it for face ... | Read More

      I've been very busy the last few days playing in the strong Semifinal of the Argentinian Championship. Playing almost every day with strong FMs and IMs (some days even twice!) give me little time to write. I should say that the hard work in the t... | Read More

    • Fischer Destroys the Najdorf

      Bobby Fischer is a LEGEND, nobody denies it. But, why? I guess it's a mixture of his great play on the board and his eccentricity outside it. As a coach, his great play is what most interests me. One of his unquesti... | Read More
