Spring Fever

I am looking forward to warm sunny days. Snow is still on the ground here.

During lunch breaks in a month, I will be able to go to the park with my analysis board, lunch and The Art of Attack. A few years ago I spent many a lunch studying chess master vs chess amatuer which was quite enjoyable.

Studying Focal-Point on g7

The games are found here:

c5 Focal Points G7 pg 83V Fernandez Coria vs Capablanca, 1914 (C49) Four Knights, 19 moves, 0-1
C5 Focal Points G7 pg 83O Field vs O Tenner, 1923 (C58) Two Knights, 18 moves, 0-1
