According to plans we have obtained, 240 Elm Street will be renovated to become a market and gym. This means that we may need to vacate our current home.

  • Results — CalChess State Championship 2014

    admin
    1 Sep 2014 | 9:56 pm
    This weekend I played in the CalChess (i.e., northern California) state championship, which was well organized and well attended. We had in the neighborhood of 250 to 260 players, which means among other things that we trounced southern California, which had “only” 160 or so. Bay Area Chess, which organized this tournament as well as most of the tournaments in this area, has come a long way. When I first played in a Bay Area Chess tournament, about ten years ago, it consisted of 96 kids and 4 adults. It took a very long time for adult chess players to warm up to the idea of…

    At Mike Splane’s chess party I showed a game I played against Paul Richter (a teen-aged expert and soon-to-be master, with a rating around 2180) that I’m also planning to give a ChessLecture on. The game had a beautiful finish, but I also had a curious blind spot that might have cost me the victory if my opponent had played the best move. Position after 41. Bh6. Black to move.

  • Another Master?

    24 Aug 2014 | 11:13 pm
    At Mike Splane’s latest chess party, which was held today, Juande Perea showed three of his games from the recent Kolty Club Championship, which he won in impressive style. Juande scored 5-0 in the games he actually played, plus he took two half-point byes for non-chess reasons, so he ended with a score of 6-1. Best of all, there’s a chance that he earned a USCF National Master rating as a result. That would be pretty amazing — two master certificates in two months for our little group! (Uyanga Byambaa was the first one.) Juande has actually been master strength ever since…
  • Olympiad is Over

    The last round of the Chess Olympiad is in the books and, no surprise, China won. They beat Poland, 3-1, making any discussion of tiebreaks academic. As I mentioned in my previous entry, they completed the event with only one loss out of 44 games, a truly dominating performance. Hungary (the only team to even win a game off the Chinese, although they lost their match) tied Ukraine 2-2 in the last round and won the silver medal on tiebreaks over India, by the narrowest possible margin (½ point). India took the bronze, which was quite impressive given that their best player (Anand) did not…

    Beating the Slav Defense - Timur Gareev Good Bishop, Bad BishopPosted on September 02,2014 By GM Levan Aroshidze in Strategy & Game Review, General Chess Articles, Beginner's Corner. A bishop is bad if its movement is severely restricted, usually by one's own pawns blocking the color of squares on which it can move. Conversely, a bishop is good if a player's own pawns are on the other color of squares from the bishop. A player with only one bishop should generally place his pawns on squares of the color that the bishop cannot move to. This creates good chemistry between the bishop and the…

  • Japan's First International Master

    1 Sep 2014 | 7:13 pm
    As far as chess news go this is hardly up there with Caruana's incredible 5/5 at the ongoing Sinquefield Cup, Carlsen possibly losing the world championship title by default or whatever else is happening in the world of chess. But since I am in the country, I might as well mention this little bit of news.Japan is set to gain its first ever international master - Nanjo Ryosuke. News was broken by FM Shinya Kojima over on his blog. The irony, of course, is that FM Kojima himself was once touted as possibly Japan's first IM!Obviously, Nanjo-san is not the first ethnic Japanese to achieve the…
  • Another Split in World Chess?

    27 Aug 2014 | 8:30 pm
    This is what I like to see, a World Champion who’s prepared to throw his weight around.Magnus Carlsen is, for now, dragging his feet over the re-match against Anand that is slated for November. The Norwegian and his team have to date not signed the contract papers, queried the suitability of the venue, asked for more prize money and also raised questions about media coverage.This is good. For if there’s anyone who really ought to do more to, at least, ruffle FIDE’s feathers – it’s the numero uno, the World Champ. How is the world body supposed to react?Already there is speculation…

He and Arianne are on their way to St Louis where Levon will play in the Sinquefield Cup.I imagine that the other participants are busy in front of their computers looking for that next big novelty. Between that and Aronian's prep method, I know exactly which one I prefer. After all, if you're world number 2 you can probably afford a bit of a frolick in the…
  • How Norway Does Chess on TV

    21 Aug 2014 | 7:05 pm
    We know that chess has been really big on Norwegian TV and that is thanks, of course, to their favourite son, Magnus Carlsen. The just completed Olympiad, for example, as well as the World Championships match in Chennai months before that were both heavily covered. Really impressive stuff.But what does it take for a mainstream outfit to cover something like a chess event?You would think that just a few cheap Handycams and maybe some GoPro's will do. Oh, no. The Norwegians went about their business like they were covering the summer Olympics! Sort of.Here's Jon Stale Carlsen describing the…
  • Rwandans Upset By Captain

    19 Aug 2014 | 3:19 pm
    I wonder what some experts on the regulations think of this.It seems that the unfortunate incident on the last day of the Olympiad has had the unintended side-effect of causing ructions within the Rwandan men's team.From Rwanda's The New Times paper:The controversy started on the final day of the tournament on Thursday last week, when in round 11, a Seychelles player against Rwanda’s Alain Patience Niyibizi on board 2, suddenly collapsed and was later pronounced dead. Although Rwanda was leading on the score against Seychelles before the incident, team captain Maxence Murara chose to…

  • INITIAL Thoughts: Blunder Save

    29 Apr 2009 | 7:26 pm
    I played team chess league tournament - the DATCC Chess League 2009. I won a pawn, then a piece and then  blundered the piece back. Here's how I saved the game. The reason I created this video because it is my initial feeling of the game. I've heard an advice from a coach that you should make your initial analysis WITHOUT the use of chess engines or even consultation so as to record as many of your thoughts that were going thru your head during the game. IF you delay the analysis after even a day, there may be "thought contamination" and your analysis will contain biases since…

Here's a video explaining the famous endgame study:-Also for a change I put this video in YouTube (for the first time) instead of Flash videos. At least with YouTube it has a bigger exposure and I don't need to have my own webspace to host Flash files as I did with my older videos.

    This is my second post on natural disasters and the human tragedy that resulted. I'm talking about the recent quake in China and my heart sank when I saw the pictures of the children killed by falling buildings. Even though I don't live in China, I am Chinese and I do have relatives living in Hainan, China. Thankfully that was not the area hit by the quakes. I'm also heartened by the fact that a online casino website is helping out with donations to the victims of the quake. I'm talking about BackgammonMasters.com which is an online backgammon site that also host blackjack tournaments. …
  • Myanmar/Burma disaster

    12 Jun 2008 | 8:17 am
    It is feared up to 1 million people may have died in this disaster, and although this is disputed, if Nargis did kill this many people, it would be the deadliest cyclone ever recorded, and the third deadliest natural disaster ever recorded in history, behind the Yellow River floods of 1887 and 1931 in China. At least 10,000 people have been reported to have perished in the delta town of Bogale.One aid worker has claimed that the death toll from the cyclone and its aftermath may reach 300,000; if this was correct it would be the 2nd deadliest cyclone and fourth deadliest natural disaster. ~…

    Mark (aka pastor guy)

    For the first few years, I made fun of people who watched Survivor... or any "reality" TV, for that matter. Then I watched a few episodes (of the now classic "Palau" season) and I was hooked. (Read my apology to those I made fun of at A Real Good Thing.) Over the years, I've been drawn into other race/competition shows: The Amazing Race Treasure Hunters (kind of National Treasure meets Amazing Race 3-member team show) Expedition Impossible (3 member teams racing across the wilds of Morocco) The Mole (the non-celebrity seasons, thank you) Capture (hi-tech tag in a forest) My most recent (and…

I am nothing if not a man of numerical order.I'm known in the gaming hobby not just for my love of "fluffy" games but also for my former "day job" as a pastor - and so I get some very insightful questions about Christianity & faith. Yesterday, you got to eavesdrop on a bit of conversation about evangelicals & mainline churches, as well as how I believe we're supposed to relate to non-Christians.

(You can read Part II as well.) Right around Christmas 2006, I was given the opportunity to write & answer questions for folks from around the world at the premier boardgaming website, BoardGameGeek.

    Some thoughts on Kickstarter and some projects I've backed: While I wish that both Dungeon Roll: Winter Heroes and Coin Age were on time, I do NOT begrudge the good folks at Tasty Minstrel Games taking copies fresh off the boat to sell at GenCon this week. GenCon is the largest gaming convention in the U.S. and as a publisher, it just makes sense. There are some whiny folks out there... and, in the words of Lloyd Dobbler: "You. Must. Chill!" Running late is not the sole province of board game companies - I'm still semi-patiently waiting for the new CD ("Goliath") from Steve Taylor & the…

In the process, I "jumped" past a few verses - but felt like I needed to cover them in some way - and so this article/blog post was written. Those of you who've been following along with my message series on 1st Thessalonians (Overloaded) may notice this week that I skipped some verses between last week's message & this week. (Or you may not have noticed until I pointed it out - oh well.) Either way, I want to take just a…
