  • USCF Game 67(W): Kindred-Begley

      Round four I win a quick victory in 21 moves, but despite its short length my opponent Daniel Begley made it a complicated and interesting game. He was rated 1624 with a high of 1638. The game became really complicated in the middle game with ... | Lees meer

    Looking at these games now, my mistakes seem so obvious.  Apparently, looking at a computer screen in my down time is not the same as sitting across the table from a real life opponent and staring at a tournament chess board for three hours. In ... | Lees meer

  • The Bore-ling Wall: Carlsen-Anand Game 7

    Today's game was not very exciting to me. From start to end it seemed clear to end in a draw. I was left wondering what Carlsen's match strategy was-- hope for a blunder? tire Anand out for the next game? -- since I could not figure how white coul... | Lees meer

                  Round 3 was an amazing game. Maybe my favorite game out of all my USCF games so far, at least top 5. It was a real war that had both of us gunning for mate as the game ended, he was just a half step behind. As I checkmat... | Lees meer
