What the cool kids play


Here is the recent game played in Moscow. A Russian and British Wunderkid faced each other on the giant outdoor ice chess set and played the Traxler.
In celebration, I played the Traxler Game this am . Paste Game into this link.

    Trans,

    I wish I was feeling more passion for completing these circles. I do take great pleasure in certain styles of play 8)

    I plan to hit it hard once I complete a Traxler project . As for "old guys" I believe that Blunderprone and now Tempo fall in your category of grads.
