    I’ve gone out of my way to write articles about the importance of balance; everyone needs both tactical and positional/strategic skills (you also need endgame skills, but at the moment we will concentrate on tactics and strategy). To add a... | Read More

  • Cracked Grandmaster Tales: Polgar vs Silman

    I didn’t intend to write a 4th Cracked Grandmaster Tales article, but so many Chess.com members asked me to do another that I decided to share a few more (true) stories. I hope you enjoy these as much as you did the others. Be warned: there mig... | Read More

    • The K-Fresh Gambit: Deadly and Sound

       As a mere 1650-something, I'll admit that there are a lot of gaps in my chess knowledge. However, I am thoroughly convinced that this is the strongest gambit ever. I've devised a gambit, and played it winning almost every time even against stron... | Read More
