    I just "discovered" that on Face Book as a reference point from another site which seems that your blog gains considerable international ground.
    I notice that you provide a lot of useful material.
    I also notice that you haven't included your FM title in the main heading.
    It might be OK for people who know you?
    But don't you think it's necessary to include it for people who have no knowledge of your experience as player and coach?

    NZ Correspondence GM Mark Noble won a correspondence game with that line a few years back (see thread). So not so easy for Black to defend even with lots of time and possible computer help.

    Is this post in the correct thread? Surely an article about Bishops of Colour (Desmond Tutu perhaps) should be in the religion thread.
    Still searching for Bobby Fischer....
    and fighting against those humourless bureaucrats who are forever lost in the minutiae.

    Desmond Tutu hasn't been a Bishop since the mid 1980s. He retired in 2010 and is now Archbishop emeritus Tutu. His successor as Bishop of Johannesburg (Duncan Buchanan) was an opposite coloured bishop - perhaps you were thinking of him.
