Entries in ChessUSA blog (4)
My second post on the ChessUSA blog is up, wrapping up the game and puzzle addressed in the initial post. Have a look, and in the meantime here's something you can do to help. The series needs a good name, and we don't yet have one. What would you propose? (The format is to have one post a week offering a tip or instruction, and the other weekly post to present a new puzzle while answering the previous week's poser.) Your help will be most appreciated.
Starting this past Thursday and continuing indefinitely, depending on reader interest, of course, I will write twice a week for the ChessUSA website, on their blog. Those posts will not duplicate my work on here, and will be aimed at a more introductory audience - from relatively serious casual players to low-to-mid-range tournament players. One post a week will offer some sort of advice or illustrate some useful theme, while the other will present a puzzle and explain the solution to the previous week's position.
I hope that many of you will help me get that other blog up and running, and even if the content turns out to be a little too simple for you, please get the word out to those who might benefit from and enjoy it. Of course it's also a commercial site, so if you're looking for chess equipment I hope you'll check out their products. (I don't get paid by commission, but if people aren't buying anything my column there probably won't survive.)
My first post is here; more to come!
