Dennis M's Chess Site

This is a blog for chess fans by a chess fan. I enjoy winning as much as anyone else, and I've had a reasonable amount of success as a competitor, but what keeps me coming back to the game is its beauty. And that, primarily, is what this site will be about! All material copyrighted.

Around the Web

It's a great big web out there, and it's impossible to keep track of all the good stuff. But hopefully I can offer a little help - here are three recent agglomerations of bytes worth your time qua chess fan.

1. Kasparov interview: Michael Greengard ("Mig") has transcribed and posted the first of what will be three parts of a very long interview he recently conducted with the famous retiree; you can read it here.

2. Kavalek's column: Erstwhile super-GM Lubosh Kavalek's Washington Post chess column is unfailingly excellent, and I'm especially eager to recommend this week's issue, due primarily to its second featured game. Lev Milman, a very talented 18-year old IM from New York, won a very nice game against fellow IM Joe Fang at the recent Foxwoods Tournament culminating with a beautiful concluding combination. If you miss it, you're definitely missing out!

3. Dragon analysis: Philosopher, blogger and Dragon specialist Victor Reppert has been presenting an occasional series featuring his Dragon games, and the latest installment is now in. The games are interesting and the theoretical summaries are well-done and a fine resource for students of that variation.
