Nov-22-15  Gottschalk: His immortal game:

C W Pritchett vs V Okhotnik, 2012

May-12-17  Octavia: <Excellent author> he certainly is! I've got a few books on the english but only his intro of PLAY THE ENGLISH explained to me why lots of players try to go for d4 after a few moves. My English may get a bit more lively thanks to Craig

He's been invited to play in a 10 player event in the Scottish in July! g l
