  • Touch-Move Rule Adventures

    I am probably a lucky guy, because I never had any "touch-move rule" episodes in my whole chess career.  Don't get me wrong, it happened numerous times in my games that either I or my opponent touched a wrong piece at a wrong time, but i... | Read More

    • It's Been Two Years: Time for Another Blog Entry!

      I see it has been almost TWO YEARS to the day since I last made a blog entry.  Funny, my timing.  As I think I mentioned two years ago, I have cut back on my chess as I was feeling burnt out after diving so deeply into the chess waters for a goo... | Read More

    • Visualization Puzzles #3

      In the previous post, I said that I read "books". What I neglected to mention, though this may be obvious to you, is that not all books are good for the kind of exercise I propose doing. For example, Understanding Chess, which I used for the last... | Read More

    • Visualization Puzzles

      If you can't visualize a changing position, you will never be a good player, no matter what you consider a "good player" to be. Easy: If 7. d5 Na5 8. Qa4 c5, does 9. Qxa5 work? Medium: After 12...Nfxe4 13. Nxe4 Bxd4 14. Bg5 f6 find the win... | Read More
