    First of all thank you for the ornithological clarification on the name of that bird, which is constantly sitting on my shoulder...

    Is that bird taking bets? I'd like to know the spread on whether this year's champion is subsequently banned at some point within the next year.

    Hi.

    The vid I have planned for July - I need to select a game (or games)
    these things take about a week to do.

    Asked in the blog:

    "Any suggestions on methods of training one's analysis?"

    I've told him there a quite number of good players here,
    so suggestions.

    Mine is play and play and play.
    Then you will start to get a feel when you should be analysing.

    I have other methods (tactical positions set up on up a real board)
    but see what some of the lads say, they may put it better than me.

    My opponents have given me the bird. I have blundered more than once, and it's my worst outing yet. I can't wait for the 2014 Championship.
