See you after Easter
At the request of my family, I am giving up playing blitz chess online and writing and reading blogs for Lent. Actually they requested that I give up all chess related things but that is not going to happen. I still intend to do Ct-Art/Tactics and attend Friday Night chess club . Perhaps you will see a new tactical monster in April.
