    NM llamalord42 Jan 10, 2014, 8:43 AM

    For the past week, 5 hours a day, I have worked on studies. Every morning at 10:00 or so I sit indian-style on the floor of my room and begin to work with my floor board. I also have a magnetic board for when I...

  • Q&A with Coach Heisman Oct 25, 2013

    NM danheisman Oct 25, 2013, 8:48 PM

    GM Gserper Mar 17, 2013, 12:10 AM

  • Games 3 & 4 - A Dull Draw and a Misplayed Endgame

    Boldchess Mar 17, 2017, 7:33 AM

    Games 3 & 4 of my match against Shredder 13 (playing strength: 2100) both ended in a draw. Game 3 was a dull draw after I allowed the engine to exchange some key pieces in an IQP position. In Game 4 I failed...

    In this series, I'm examining KRP vs KR positions where the strong side's Pawn is as far as possible from queening.  This time, we will look at some cases where the defending King is cut off by three files.  If...
