state of my chess
in 2015 so far, i've played about 22 games. i need to reach my goal of 52 games by the end of august. this means i'm about 10 games behind. but i think i'll be able to reach my goal. most of my games are turn-based. in fact, i've got an active game with robert pearson going right not - it's early into the match. you can follow that game here.
unfortunately, this is about all the chess i can get in right now. i started a new assignment at work and it does not leave much time for anything else. every once in a while, i'm able to sneak away during lunch and solve some problems at chesstempo. and once a in blue moon, i pull out chess book and read.
if anyone wants to play a 30 0 game or longer, leave a comment. i play on chess.com or lichess.com.
and lastly, i'm sure everyone has already seen this, but in my effort to document chess violence, i needed to add this to the list: a 10 year old boy jumps to his death after being check-mated
