Black has a solid lead in development and decides to go for an idea that is more fascinating than correct. -- Jacob Aaagard

.....My Chess life story.

I am a coffeehauser chess player from New Hampshire, USA and like a good attacking style game. Thus I play things like the King's Gambit, Danish, Traxler, Max Lange attack, Halloween Attack as White. As well as the 2 Knights, Reti Gambit, Englund Gambit, Marshall Attack, King Indian Defense as Black. Where I soon may be looking into the Benko Gambit, Perenyi Attack, Scandinavian Defense and Latvian Gambit. -of late my obsession has shifted from the Kings Gambit as white to the Halloween Gambit. Game Collection: Halloween Gambit -Let's Sack a Knight on Move 4

My collections reflect some of the Chess Attacking books that I like.

I did the Rapid Chess Improvement 7 Circles thing back in the 2000's and wrote about it in a blog here. http://takchess.blogspot.com/

I have created most of these collections will try to credit those who I copied in time.

My playing strength is on the left side of the bell curve of members of chessgames.com. Had an 8 year break and just picking up chess again. I currently limit my playing online too addicting. My wife says I can play all the chess I want once I retire.......

It seems appropriate to be listening to children sing a Box of Rain today. RIP Daniel>

Thank you for posting this today

  takchess: TGA from Wikipedia. According to lyricist Hunter, Lesh "wanted a song to sing to his dying father and had composed a piece complete with every vocal nuance but the words. If ever a lyric 'wrote itself,' this did—as fast as the pen would pull."[4] Lesh practiced the song driving to the nursing home where his father lay with terminal cancer.

According to an interview of Hunter by Steve Silverman, as asked by Silverman, "The song "Box of Rain" began as a rough vocal outline from Phil Lesh. How does that process work?". Hunter replied, "Scat singing: Dum-dum dum, da-da-da-da, bump-dum-dum-dum-dum, dee-dee-dee. I'm able to translate peoples' scat. I hear English in it, almost as though I write down what I hear underneath that. I hear the intention. It's a talent like the Rubik's Cube, or something like that, and it comes easily to me. Which might be why I like Language poetry. I can tell from the rhythms, or lack of rhythms, from the disjunctures and the end stoppages, what they're avoiding saying-- the meaning that they would like to not be stating there, comes rushing through to me. I understand dogs. I can talk to babies."

  Annie K.: Hi, please don't post puzzles you would like to recommend to be featured as PotD. They are supposed to be surprises.

Kevin doesn't have your email yet - he has to get it from Sargon, and Sargon is very busy. Things should start happening very soon - maybe even today or tomorrow. Please just wait.

Or if you want to post your email, I will forward it to Kevin directly.

  zanzibar: <Annie K.> you're implying that you know something about the status of the site, and about <Sargon>'s involvment...

But you're only revealing to us mushrooms in bits as an aside in a comment?!

Another disappointment.

  takchess: <Annie> Makes sense I will put together a bucket of them. The lag time is not a bad thing as will give me some time to collect some that have never been posted as POTD before.
