  • Old Age, Great Chess!

    IM Silman Dec 2, 2015, 11:19 PM

    After I learned how to play chess (age 12), I jumped into the game head first by playing in a chess tournament (even though I didn’t know the difference between checkmate and stalemate). Let’s just say...

  • Vladimir Kramnik And The Berlin Defense

    GM BryanSmith Nov 5, 2015, 1:37 AM

    Before the 2000 world championship match between Vladimir Kramnik and Garry Kasparov, the latter had been champion since long before I started playing chess. Kasparov dominated the chess world and seemed unbeatable....

  • How To Save Chess

    GM Gserper Aug 15, 2015, 3:25 AM

    In 1920s, the world chess champion Jose Raul Capablanca was at the height of his career. He was so much better than anyone else that he was called "the chess machine" due to the merciless precision of his play. So...

  • Lasker's Queen's Gambit Declined

    GM BryanSmith Aug 13, 2015, 2:07 AM

    The second world champion, Emanuel Lasker, is a difficult one to include in this series, but it must be done. There is hardly any opening to which he is closely attached. He played a wide variety...

  • No Risk, No Reward

    blohmoremoney Feb 24, 2017, 1:01 AM

    An absolutely disappointing game by me on the Black side of a Sicilian Sveshnikov. Not so much for the result, but more so I accepted a draw in a position where there was still a lot of fight. Whilst the assessment...

  • Dangers of the d5 Sveshnikov Outpost

    blohmoremoney Feb 23, 2017, 1:44 AM

    Whilst my game on the White side of a Sicilian Sveshnikov isn't very rich with ideas, I think it's illustrative of why Black plays 8. ... b5 to prevent White's Knight from regrouping Na3-c4-e3-d5.    

  • One Piece Stands Badly

    blohmoremoney Dec 21, 2016, 6:01 PM

    The old adage that if one piece stands badly, the whole position stands badly, certainly rang true for my game on the White side of a Sicilian Sveshnikov. I was very impressed with my opponent's (may have been a...

  • Sveshnikov & Vlassov among World Senior leaders by Mark Ginsburg

    sontu1296 Dec 12, 2016, 8:32 AM

    Things are going well in the four sections (Women’s 50+, Women’s 65+, Men’s 50+, Men’s 65+) of the World Senior Championship, played at various nice hotels in the wooded spa town of Marianske Lazne, Czech Republic....

  • Review: Modern Repertoire against the Italian Game by Boris Avrukh (

    IM IM_Kgwm Nov 24, 2016, 10:16 AM

    I've always wanted to write reviews for the books or articles that I like but never got around to doing so. Well, until today that is. Writing a genuinely good review is hard work as it means that the reviewer has...
