      Might this appeal to those of us who fancy getting reacquainted with tactics? (Open Culture is a stupidly good website, well worth falling down the rabbit hole with them one evening)...

      Hmm you're right. I've flicked through the pages on chesstactics.org - you could save those to pdf but agreed, not as handily available as I was led to believe

      No worries I picked up a couple of other books instead (a tactics one and a french defense one). If I get chance wanna step away from the computer for a concentrated hour here or there. To many distractions online (checking email, NSC, someone challenges). Gonna hopefully start playing OTB games soon in Worcester from June, chaps been in touch and playing a game for their online team, just the three of us mind

      Got a 1-1 in my game against Qarabagh and feel pissed off. Won the first comfy enough and then was up in the 2nd and we had him with repetitive check, asked for the draw and then just didnít concentrate. I know Pickles played the same guy last time and he is tenacious. Iíll learn from throwing that point away though.
      So, many, many thanks and see you soon, because itís not a goodbye, I know I will come back, I have to.

      My Ajax opponent has just resigned in my black game - he was a piece down and was about to lose a rook for a bishop. My white game is a lot tighter though, he has the edge in that ... although he missed a mating opportunity at the weekend.

      My Arsenal opponent has gone for a fancy, full-frontal attack but his defence looks a bit flimsy ... a bit like Arsenal's football, come to think of it.

      Mine is gonna be 1-1 My end game tactics needs work to to turn some of my draws or losses to wins, I've defintely highlighted that as my spot that needs work next
      There is a friendly grudging rivalry forming with those guys and it can only be good for us to have the World Champs challenging US! Whatever happens this game, there will be a tie break at least! Congrats on a point, they dont have any poor players and we are ore than holding our own against EVERYONE. I have been off line a little so out of touch with a couple of matches, will have a look through some games tomorrow if I get chance Looking forward to the Bayern game.

      Oooh pray tell. That would be most welcome, though unless its a timed out match I am sure some credit is due, its quite hard to fluke games against their ratings

      Two early goals against Arsenal to get the match off to a good start.
