8 & 9 a blur

1/30/13 and 1/31/13 - Polgar 5334: 163-210,   Chess School 1a: 361-375

With the long night, the days are a blur. Started playing a handful of correspondence style online chess here for the first time. Not so bad.

With all the talk about Chernev in the forums, I plan to revisit his Winning Chess tactics book that I loved so dearly for 3 months in the spring of 1992. Three sweaty months at the Coffee Call cafe au lait and beignet place on the levee of the Mississippi River in downtown Baton Rouge, just a stone's throw from the Interstate 10 bridge.
