I recently won a lost game when my opponent exceeded the time limit in a won position. Despite the fact that I had blundered a P earlier apparently I still had drawing chances in the position below. Houdini rates the position as only slightly in White’s favor, but on my 29th move I made an elementary mistake in allowing my opponent to get a passed P supported by his R behind it.
What's here? My comments about chess and my pdf booklets on players and tournaments. PLUS links to sites about chess history, scholastic help, chess books (on line and downloadable), places to play chess online (real time and correspondence), Soviet chess sites, chess instruction, recommended books, chess engines, endgame databases and other really great Blogs. You will find posts about chess engines, well-known and not-so-well-known historical figures, great games and a lot of other things about chess that I have found interesting or informative. There are also posts on improvement containing subject matters like pattern recognition and how chess masters think. Most improvement advice has been gleaned from the masters themselves and psychological studies which have attempted to understand the thought process of chess masters. Be sure to take time to browse the whole Blog for interesting material. Your comments and suggestions are always welcome.
