Black to move and win material.

Interested in learning?  Try THIS.  He has helped my game.  Yesterday at OTB chess I won all my games decisively, garnering three exclamations of “Good move!” from one of the manifestly strongest players.

I’ve been using this board, which is sharpening my OTB game. It’s one thing to play on a screen and another to have a board in front of you.  Chess House has the ChessUp board on sale for $349 (instead of $399) with free shipping.  HERE


You can always go to Chess House and rummage around.

The Summit Dominican’s are still taking orders through 17 December at which time they will close their shop’s shutters and focus on the end of Advent. Great stocking-stuffer potential.
