Annotated Game of the Day!

I'm going to start off with one of my correspondence games from a while ago. I hope it keeps your interest. I will also be including master level games as well, however, as my students will be accessing this page, I will aim a large portion of my discussion at the scholastic player.

Chess Galore!!!

I've wanted to create this blog for a long time and I have finally made the time to get it rolling! Having written for other chess sites and spent innumerable hours behind the keyboard for others, I figured it was time to get my own forum together.

I will be updating this site quite often with games, puzzles, book reviews, instruction and much more. I will also be having guest authors from time to time, so keep an eye out.
