  • Fixing Your Weaknesses

    This week, we’ll take a look at a young Indian player, Sakshi1234567. She had this to say: “I am 13 years old. My father taught me chess when I was 10. I’ve been taking the game seriously from October 2015. I want to become a g... | Read More

  • USA—USSR

         In 1945, right after WWII ended, a team of United States players competed against a team of Soviet players in a chess match via radio. While the U.S. team expected stiff competition, there was little doubt in... | Read More

  • Chess Criminals And The Games They Play

    As a man that has many interests (UFOs, martial arts, philosophy, various forms of history [chess and non-chess], literature, art, film, music, and even criminology), I recently began reading an excellent book entitled "Shady Side: The Life and Cr... | Read More

  • The Birth And Development Of The Hillbilly Attack

    People are obsessed with chess openings. Amazon shows 28,265 books listed when you search for "Chess Book", but I expect the number of books written on the game is well over 100,000. If I were to hedge a bet, then I would also guess that... | Read More

  • The Pawn Center Controversy

    There are basic rules of chess strategy that we learn as soon as we start playing chess. One of the most fundamental premises is the importance of the center. We quickly learn that one of the major goals of positional chess is control ov... | Read More


    • The Championship! Finally!

      After chasing the goal of "club champion" for many years, I have finally done it :-)  I have placed 2nd and 3rd several times, often in fact, but until this one I have never managed to get the title. Half a point clear of the field, I managed 6.... | Read More

      Today I'm going to talk about a different and mysterious aspect of chess, blindfold chess. Blindfold chess is when a person is able to visualize the position without looking at the board. He/She will be able to use the coordinates on the board to... | Read More

    • Crazy idea

      Crazy ideas, or in other words sacrifices, seem like a bad idea. Yet they can produce good results. Sacrifices work best if used alongside pins, skewers, double attacks, discovered attacks, and even forks. They need to be planned and executed well... | Read More

    • The "Win a Piece" Variation

      One of the trickiest openings I know, is what I call the "Win a Piece" variation of the Caro-Kann. Full credit for developing the opening should be given to Colorado's infamous NM Brian Wall; developer of such crazy openings as the "Fishing Pole" ... | Read More

    • There are no right moves in chess

      The entire crux of a game is for fun. Be it chess, cricket, NFL or anything else. Winning is just the byproduct. Yet helicopter parents, along with uptight, hardened (and yes, disllusioned, yes disllusioned) coaches try to instill and inculcate th... | Read More
