The plan is to do a mini blog after each game. No fireworks
in Game One. Hopefully not a taste of what is to come.

Thanks again to TonyTiger41 and HikaruShindo for the pictures.

Awww sh|t and I'm wasting my vacation on Vegas and hookers. Dammit. My chance to finally get my name mentioned in GP's column and I'm exposed as not even a chess fan no more. 😞

Re: 20.) g3 (not enough luft.GP)

Andrew Soltis wrote about “uber-luft”, giving the King room to escape back-rank issues by advancing a pawn 2 squares instead of 1,
He says “in the vast majority of cases, one square will be better. But in that minority of positions, the benefit of two squares will be considerable”.
