When a new Chess Informant arrives, I am like a child on Christmas morning. After a day or two of uncontrolled enthusiasm, I am able to settle down and begin work. One goal with each new issue is to play through the whole of the games section. Informant 127 contains 200 main games or fragments and 116 additional games as comments on these. Getting the CD with the book facilitates this enterprise.
This position is the second diagram in the first game, Rapport -- Fressinet, Reykjavik 2015.
Scholastic players and parents: The label "Problem of the Week" links to posts that contain my "lesson of the week." These blog posts serve to reinforce what is presented in my after school and in-school chess clubs.
I am available for one-on-one lessons in person or online. Use the contact form below if interested.
