Jul-05-04  damien9000: I have no comment. I have a question. Where do I play chess games at???????
Aug-01-04  Dick Brain: This game involves a psychogical strategy. First you tranquilize your opponent with the English Opening, then while he is still groggy you switch to a kingside attack and destroy him along the h-file.

<damien9000> you cannot play chess games of your own here, you view and kibits on games already played and post on message boards.

  ray keene: i played probably hundreds of games v jn sugden at dulwich college when we were 13 /14. we were the top two players at dulwich and we improved by constantly playing each other.sugden went on to become top board for st johns college cambridge, he qualified for the british championship and was a regular member of the cambridge team which repeatedly won the uk club and county championships-his most recent result was 2nd place in the major open tournament in the british championships recently concluded on the isle of man.much of my early progress i attribute to numerous sparring games with him.
Nov-20-06  Microbe: This game makes me think of the Japanese game "shogi". The way that the castled position is exploited along the h-file is not unlike the attacks commonly seen on a Yagura castle.
