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.

PAX,

Jim

    There you go again, letting family and religion get in the way of chess. Where are your priorities? :)

    It is difficult to compete against the chess queen.

    When I was a kid in the Catholic Church, the priest asked me what I was going to give up for Lent.

    I told him: Religion.

    I'm not familiar with that tradition. Can't you just play 1.d4 as penitence?

    takchess, not to beep my horn too hard, but if you see my last two posts, they are extensive in the angles related to the pauses we take that make us better chess players, playing less blitz but studying real hard chess.

    warm regards, from seattle, david
