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?

Thx, Elliott - But I am not doing it to promote myself..so no point in adding CV..as for FM title..:) anyway, will be happy if more people can gain from my occasional links and ramblings :)

I'm not so surprised if it does turn out to be drawn, because black can't advance the g-pawn, or you get f+h which is frequently drawn with best play. So the idea that black should win just because black is two pawns up doesn't hold.

NZ Correspondence GM Mark Noble won a correspondence game with that line a few years back (see thread (http://www.chesschat.org/showthread.php?11933-ICGM-Mark-Noble/page2)). So not so easy for Black to defend even with lots of time and possible computer help.

Some great endgames to play through and to analyze!

Is this post in the correct thread? Surely an article about Bishops of Colour (Desmond Tutu perhaps) should be in the religion thread.

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.

LOL when pasting from MCC Page...did not include the word ''opposite'' = at least it provided you so much joy...as well as something to do :)

Great article by Marin!
Some of the Catalan ideas explained very clearly and can be understood by club level players. There should be more opening books/articles like that!

Agreed, Good article. I also own a Marin on English Opening book and in general I think he is a good chess writer.

What makes his articles/books good is his ability to address concerns of players of different levels and make the book worthy of reading/purchasing for all of them. Not many writers are good at it.
