I am Washington, DC lawyer. I pretty much suck at chess, but I love it! Catch me playing some 2 12 games on FICS. Fear my proficiency with the Italian Game and Petroff's Defense, but laugh at my total lack of knowledge with anything else!!!

It's still pretty new and rusty, but check out my web log:

EyesofBlue: Excited about the new Kindle!!! Looks awesome. Anyone aware of any good chess books on there? My experience is that it is really hit or miss -- some good, some really bad. Currently reading Pretty good. Hoping the new Kindle will be cool

EyesofBlue: I agree with the general sentiment... today's was easier than yesterday. Fix those damn stars,! LOL
   Jul-12-10 NN vs Blackburne, 1871 (replies)
EyesofBlue: Got it, but not without too long of a thought process. And it is only Monday?!
   Jul-10-10 Dzindzichashvili vs Ljubojevic, 1985 (replies)
EyesofBlue: First Saturday puzzle, I got in a long time.... and I mean a LONG time. My regret with these puzzles, however, like most chess puzzles is that the answer is usually some kind of brazenly-looking sacrifice. Would I have seen this if this was real game.... where a ...

EyesofBlue: Got it, but it took way too long.

EyesofBlue: <Sigh>. I missed this one.... And it's only Wednesday?!
   Jun-17-10 R Shamshin vs I Polovodin, 1989 (replies)
EyesofBlue: I got the key 55... Rh6+, but after that I was lost. Perhaps, rightfully so. After Black's 57th move, White's three legal moves apparently provide a Mate in 10, 9 or 8. M-10 58.Kb5 Qb1+ 59.Kc4 Qxa2+ 60.Kc3 Rh3+ 61.Kd4 Rh4+ 62.Kd3 Qb3+ 63.Rc3 Qd5+ 64.Ke3 Qe4+ 65.Kf2 Rh2+ 66.Kg3 ...

EyesofBlue: Is 15... Nc7 any better? (i.e., does it minimize loss of the queen?)
   May-02-09 Z Varga vs Z Gyimesi, 2005 (replies)
EyesofBlue: Yeah, 5. Nxd4 or even 5. Ba4 would be better.
   Apr-17-09 Romero Holmes vs B Kantsler, 2002 (replies)
EyesofBlue: Pretty freaking awesome. Probably a tough call for black too who is still a rook up (how many people would still be playing for a win?)
