  • Chessmaster vs Me

    Time limit was 60 min each. It is a king's Indian opening where I am playing black. I survived the opening, probably equalized in the middlegame, but died in the end. Not sure what went wrong actually.  | Lees meer

  • Tactics from a Swindle

    Hi Chess Friends,   Last night I played a five hour game late into the night, against a strong FM in the DC Chess League. After an overly creative (or bad) opening, I was lost for most of the game. Fortunately, despite a missing pawn or two, th... | Lees meer

  • My favorite pawn structure

    I've written two magazine articles about the K3-KB2-KN3-KR3 pawn structure, plus a section in my Capablanca book. There's probably a book to be written about it — it's an unsatisfactory shelter for a king, and it arises so commonly.   | Lees meer

  • QUAD 45|45 Tourney #2 (1600 - 1799) Ronde 1

    Je suis plutôt dissipé ces derniers temps. Mes parties sont brouillonnes et je n'ai pas le goût de m'attarder sur l'essence des positions. Mauvaise partie perdu en 7 coups. J'ai tenté de mettre de la pression mais mon adversaire à bien joué. | Lees meer
