This is my first attempt at a Blog. It's surprising to me that it's taken me this long to attempt such a thing. After all, When I was 10 I had the first home computers in my house. My mom was a computer programmer back in the days of a computer being as large as a refridgerator. I remember my step dad designing an early video game at home for his college classes. The data was stored on a cassette tape! Pretty crazy. But here I am just now joining youtube as iZACWILSON and starting a blog here on chess.com I will be using this blog to share whatever I've discovered recently, or something that I find usefull or interesting. I don't know what my rating is as I've never competed in USCF or FIDE but online with Fritz I have defeated many in the 1750 range. This is also where Fritz puts me as I play against the computer. I recently joined chess.com I haven't played enough games for rating to improve above 1600 yet, but I think I just need to give it time to play enough games. Many times I will lose games because I am destracted by life. I work 6 days a week, I have 2 kids, and chess is what I use to relax. I am hoping that my blog can be used to share information with young people I teach in the local chess club. I may not be a Master, but I have plenty to share with new players. I will now attempt to insert a cool puzzle using the diagram feature:
