    "What do you tell someone who is losing too much?" The main reason for losing too much is playing too many players who are much higher rated than you! So we have to ask, "Do you mean you are in a slump (If so, check out Breaking a Slump) and losi... | Read More

    • Knights vs. Bishops Smackdown

      I often grow annoyed with the official script of what I am "supposed" to do when playing chess. "Don't move the same piece multiple times in the opening." "Castle early." "Place rooks behind pawns, friend or foe." These petty commands multiply an... | Read More
