This Chess site is for players who have mastered the basic moves and now wish to improve their game.
We are two Chess enthusiasts who wrote most of this site in the first couple of years after we took up the game. It has had a few additional features added after that, but the main part of the site shows our experiences and understanding of the game as we went through the learning process.
We offer a guided tour through 50 of our earliest games, showing our successes and failures; our brilliant flashes of inspiration; and our most inexplicable blunders. We have analysed the games to bring out basic chess principles and strategies. The games are presented, warts and all, with no editing out of poor moves or hiding embarassing failures. We hope that visitors, particularly new chess players, can learn something worthwhile from studying these games.
This website is provided free of charge, for addicts and wannabes alike, although we are happy to accept donations if you wish to show your appreciation. We are pleased to receive e-mails from visitors, particularly if you find the site interesting or useful, although we no longer publish these. Suggestions for improvement are always welcome.
Enjoy your visit - and come back soon.
