Game Of The Week

 

This week's game comes from the March Panera Thursday tournament.  It was my final round game, and I guess I have not quite adjusted to this new format, as I was not happy with how I played the whole tournament.  In this game, I started out well enough picking up a couple of pawns and feeling like it was going to be an easy finish.

Game Of The Week

 

This week's game come from the club event and is my first published loss of the season.  It was a tough one to lose, as I felt like I had the advantage the whole game.  However, I had gotten 15 minutes behind during a Game 30 and was afraid that I was going to collapse in time pressure.  I guess it was a dose of my own medicine.

Game Of The Week


This week's game comes from the club event.  I wasn't playing too well and only had one decent game.  However, I still managed 2.5 points.  Part of the reason was that it was a fast time control (G15), and Dean Brown was trying to keep score.

Game Of The Week


Since I am still trying to figure out my new system of putting out newsletters, I picked an easy game to publish.  It comes from question 9 of my old Grimm interview.  The diagram did not paste very well into the blog so I figured I would just add it as a video.  But I also ran across a nice PGN viewer!  So I also added the last 2 games into the Games link.  Check ...

Change The World

Tuesday February 16, 2010


If I could be King, even for a day, I'd take you as my Queen.  I'd have it no other way, and our love would rule this kingdom we had made.  Til then I'd be a fool, wishing for the day that I can change the world.
