Game Of The Week


This week I received a game from Larry Wutt. He sent it to me in an email as a PGN attachment, and it worked well!


The only weird thing I noticed was a $6 and several $2 notations. I thought Larry was assigning his prize money to specific mistakes by his opponents, but it was just the p...

This week’s game comes from the Tuesday night ladder matches. Bill Whinemiller and I have been coming to the Colorado Springs Chess Club for years but have never played each other…until now.

Game Of The Week


This week’s game comes from the Brian Wall simultaneous. Tom Mullikin was nice enough to give me his game. He went into the game hoping not to get mated in a miniature. He came out with a nice game that fell apart after he achieved his goal.

Game Of The Week


This week’s game comes from Tuesday night’s lecture by Shaun MacMillan. All the members had a chance to take a classic game and butcher the ending. However, only a handful of members actually took all of Alekhine’s hard work and wasted it by giving black a draw. I was one of them.
