bits and pieces

I played Saturday in a 60 minute 4 game Swiss played put on by the Capital City Chess Club in Bow NH. I enjoy these events in that they are small, friendly,inexpensive with a good level of play. Bow is a small town outside of our Capital City: Concord and the tournaments are held in a small church basement. The end results was I went 1 of 4. I did beat the only fellow who beat me last time a 1400 player. Played 2 2 knights as black but didn't get it done, no king gambits . All In all a fun day.I sold a bunch of my chess books at the tournament and bought Starting out with the King Indian by Joe Gallagher. (of Winning with the King Gambit fame)


Still working with the Silicide lines and found this game interesting. I love the Combo on move 14.

My Desktop broke and Dell may have to replace a bunch of gear. I have some of my playchess analysed games backed up but not all. we will see what remains after the fix.

    Hope you don't lose your playchess cache of saved games. My dell crashed once after I'd played over 1000 playchess games and I lost them all. Past games are great to look back on as a marker for who we were and who we are now as chess players.
