  • My games at the Cajun Chess Houston Open 2014

    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 ... | Mehr lesen

  • Yes, you can become a chess master, here's how: part 8

    Last time, I left of with this position, and I offer the concluding moves as the game was quickly drawn. The draw helped my team win the match, but there were some potential winning chances here for me.   My video lesson 001 teaches you imp... | Mehr lesen

  • 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... | Mehr lesen

  • USCF Game 66(W): Kindred-Cao

                  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... | Mehr lesen

  • 2014 World Mind Games Final Game 3 - Gnab digs in to draw - now down to the wire...

    Today's game saw Gnaburits walk into some deep preparation by Katz and gang. Katz got the type of position that he plays best, a small, durable edge with chances for Black to go wrong. With a clever pawn sacrifice, Gnab unleashes his bishop pair t... | Mehr lesen

  • I dwell in longings of one

    I dwell in longings of one while another keeps me in his ambitions  I am only an image in the mirror, behind the mirror is someone else  I am easily attained by one yet am in another's words of prayer  I have become the destiny of one whi... | Mehr lesen

  • Montana Closed 2014, Round 3

    In the third round I was paired with James, one of the previous year's co-champions. We played an Alekhine, which I had never had in a tournament game before. A knew a few moves, but things went more or less swimmingly for him until a big b... | Mehr lesen

  • Almost a big scalp

    Just a few hours ago, I played a very interesting game. It is a part of the ongoing club tournament, and today I faced last year's winner and one of the strongest players in our club. Being rated above 2000, he has 600 points on me. Suffice to say... | Mehr lesen

  • USCF Game 65(W): Norris-Kindred

                  Round 2 was a fun game with lots of psychological elements with me trying my best poker face after accidently dropping a pawn. Of course I tried to pretend I meant to do it. In the end it did turn out to be a successful ... | Mehr lesen

  • Montana Closed 2014, Round 2

    Again with black, in the second round I was paired with Conrad, the talented, affable young man with the merciless endgame ability. With 3.d4 he opted for the Scotch, which I have not studied formally but have had a good amount of practical exper... | Mehr lesen

  • USCF Game 64(L): Nickel-Kindred

      Another King’s Island Open tournament begins. I would be in the U1700 division beginning with a rating of 1658. I began this tournament with more confidence than I did 2 years ago when I started my first U1700. This maybe was over confidence... | Mehr lesen
