the Luxury of Chess  
Over the course of the last 4 days, I've had the glorious luxury of playing chess 7 times against 3 different outstanding opponents.

V: 2 me: 0
Allen: 0 me: 2
Mark (naech): 3 me: 0

I need a lot more practice. o.0

One of the patterns emerging is that once I've acknowledged 1-2 potential threats, I focus on those for the defensive part of my move and don't keep looking. I also need to develop my pieces a lot better, and have started working on that, but as can be seen, this helped me not at all against Mr. Mark. I also need to focus more on moves that allow me to be offensive and defensive at the same time. Everyone is kicking my ass at that, and I have nothing but room for improvement.

I love playing chess. Aimee (junoimelda), I miss the days of having you so nearby! I haven't been back to Drunken Knights since you moved.

V, Cyra, Mark and I played Cyra's 4-player chess set a few weeks ago, and that was so much fun. I'm hoping to do it again as time and schedules allow.

I love to play chess! And I teach. If you want to play a few games, instructional or just for fun and practice, give me a ring.

Oh man, I haven't played chess in a looooong time. We should go back there, or go somewhere in any event, so I can brush off the cobwebs and you can in all likelihood stomp me into the ground. :)
