Hi. I'm a chess fan, but a fairly weak player (~1400)

The legends whose games interest me the most are: Paul Morphy, Mikhail Tal, Bent Larsen and R.J. Fischer. I also like N. Short, J. Speelman, V. Anand and the 2 K's.

I won a blindfold game against a friend once (I was, he wasn't). That was both quite unexpected and quite funny! Full Member

LucB: <It's a Kmoch term from 'Pawn Power' I's been years since I read it. I'm sure I'm right. It's sounds right.> Well, I've never read the book, so who am I to argue with Herr Kmoch or Frau Sally? :)

LucB: <Once> <But I would not recommend typing "mating positions" into google...> Definitely not a good idea... it reminds me of when I once wanted to introduce the topic of implicit differentiation to my students and I did a search for "beautiful curves" to show them some ...

LucB: <CIO> <I wasted my youth on drugs, sex, and rock n roll; best to give those things up for superior chess technique, all you youngsters.> :D .... you remind me of my dad who - a smoker for most of his life - would say to me: "don't smoke, it's not good for you!"
