D Is For Discovery III

D Is For Discovery III

I was invited down to the Colorado Springs Open last weekend to see a movie with LM Brian Wall.  I go to, maybe, one movie a year.  So, I was excited to see a movie with a large group of chess players who follow Brian like the disciples followed Jesus.  However, Mark Krowczyk struck the shepherd in the 3rd round and the sheep scattered:


It wasn't a total loss, as I was able to see some exciting games finish and take some pictures for the website:

This week's position comes from a rare battle of women at the chess club, Shirley Herman vs Anthea Carson.  It is black to move.
