    Today we kick of with a Frodo game. It’s an excellent coaching tool
    and should inpsire young players (and older players) to great things.

    My quest for the Pawn of Avalon.

    Then onto a classic played by Nona Gaprindashvili which inspired Tal

    Which leads to an instructive missed win from a friend of mine in OTB play.

    Stuck for an idea I resort to some of my games...a few wins
    a few losses. Recently I’ve plummeted from just over 2000
    to the murky depths of 1700. A bit like my recent OTB play.

    Not sandbagging (thought I’d that) as I only play in Hardcore
    non-rating events. I’m just getting old, too eager......and crap.

    Bobby Fischer said he just got good. I just got pretty bad.

    But do check out the last game. it’s a cracker.
