  • A Month of Studies: Part 2

    For the past week, 5 hours a day, I have worked on studies. Every morning at 10:00 or so I sit indian-style on the floor of my room and begin to work with my floor board. I also have a magnetic board for when I am tired of sitting, and when I am u... | Read More

  • Un Lucena mal planteado

    • A Bad Day at the UMBC Open (Now Complete!)

    • Rare Caro Kann sideline with 1.e4 c6 2.Qf3?!

      When I have the black pieces I frequently play the Caro Kann defence. Today I was faced with a very rare and rather dubious sideline, which I had not encountered before. Here is the game with annotations by me, with the help of Shredder11: Acc... | Read More

    • Fun With The St. George

      Continuing with my enjoyment of offbeat openings, I've been experimenting with the St. George to see if I can make it tournament-worthy. It's hard to tell because I've suffered some fantastic losses with it, but by the same token it often allows ... | Read More
