Well, been an interesting time since my last blog, my ratings have risen even got above 1300 for a time, still making silly mistakes but enjoying my chess except for those who forever go on vacation when you make a good move. I actually resigned from 2 games because of these tactics in a Tourny, ( I know about cutting your nose off to spite your face). Certain names have been written in the Book of Grudges !!.
Knights or Bishops, although the Queen/Bishop diagonal is a favourite ploy of mine I really feel that Knights have the edge in the modern game, a chess friend said Bishops for closed games, Knights for an open game, I think thats what he said, anyway good advice, seems to work for me.
I'm wondering if I have latent homophobic tendencys, because I'm always giving the Queen a hard time, Queens that sit quietly on the back row are no problem, but when they move, flouncing about, bullying smaller pieces, I get annoyed and go after them, giving them a hard time if I can and chasing them off the board. whats your opinion?
