The position below arose in a game I played last week. I am black, Fritz is white and is playing at 2398 strength.
White has just played g5 g6, it is now black to play.

Over the years, I have read in many books, articles and seen in videos, the advice given, that is bad to move the pawns in front of your king. All this information was familiar to me.

However, it is quite different when a computer programme starts attacking your kingside with it`s advanced pawns in reality.

It is as if I became paralysed and transfixed by the danger of white`s attack, it rendered me incapable of analysing the situation correctly, in my bewildered state I failed to heed the advice I had come across over the years.

I was unable to assess the fact that black too had a possible ongoing attack. After the game Fritz analysis showed be the best way to continue, was to ignore white`s attack and reply with b5 b4!

To put it simply, I became bemused in the heat of battle and was unable to think correctly!

I wonder how many club players would be able to analyse the position above for black and play the b5 b4 move?

It would probably be easy for GMs and IMs to assess the situation precisely, but not so easy for many club players?

If I get time tomorrow I must post the game and how it went, I lost.

Then I will post the game showing how it could have and should have went if I had remained calm!

Isaiah 42:25 Therefore he hath poured upon him the fury of his anger, and the strength of battle: and it hath set him on fire round about, yet he knew not; and it burned him, yet he laid it not to heart.


On Saturday morning, an enthusiastic group of local chess players gathered at the famous/infamous Europa hotel, for the UCU 2018 championships.

Below is a short video of the scene just before and after the commencement.  

The last round is being played, even as I post this video.

Live video feed can be seen at this link.

Managed to update a video of Rinty Monaghan, it now features Carl Frampton and Luke Jackson.

This is interesting, Jews in Jerusalem who run the Brit Am website, propagate the view that many of the people of Southern Ireland are of Hebrew descent.

Tyson Fury used "Sweet Home Alabama" for part of his ring entrance on Saturday night. 

It electrified the crowd, "Sweet Home Alabama" is very popular in N.Ireland, as there are many people of Ulster/Scots, or Scots/Irish descent here.

I would class it as Hillbilly music, which leads me to the Hillbilly Attack, made famous by GM Simon Williams.


The Lenningrad Cowboys are good at this also!

Was very pleased to solve this tactic over on  Black has just played ...Rb6 white can force checkmate with a series of moves?

This is my best solved tactic in quite a while.

As this is a big fight week for Carl Frampton, I usually get asked by media companies for permission to use a short video of Carl which I filmed in approx 1996.

I have sent word to Carl, that he is not a real champion until he does a Rinty Monaghan, and sings "When Irish Eyes Are Smiling."

Here is a video showing Carl and Rinty Monaghan, for people who do not know, Rinty Monaghan was an absolute gentleman!

Here is an news archive of Rinty Monaghan below.

A friend informed me that the local Sunday World newspaper, has mentioned me in an article 2 Sundays ago.

Part of the article can be seen below.

From what I can gather, the real thrust of the article is an attack on Emma Little`s father whom many suspect of being an MI5 informer, in the past.

The moral of the story is clear, if Emma Little`s father ever asks you to go on a free trip to Paris, just say, Never, Never, Never, Never!

The story stems from this article.........

Was talking to Ross Harris last week, I meant to tell him about a great picture online showing the old Strand Picture House from the early 1960s.

The amazing picture also shows some family saloon cars from that era as well.

It was first posted on this Twitter feed.

A local newspaper has published an article in the last few days. To headline the article, they posted a picture of Steven Clark.

Steven Clark is now dead, however the information he left behind is very damaging to quite a few people who are still alive!

It turns out an 8 year old child is far, far, far, far wiser than Nigel Short!
God sent His son, they called Him Jesus
He came to love, heal and forgive
He lived and died to buy my pardon
An empty grave is there to prove my savior lives
Because He lives, I can face tomorrow
Because He lives, all fear is gone
Because I know He holds the future
And life is worth the living, just because He lives
How sweet to hold a newborn baby
And feel the pride and joy He gives
But greater still the calm assurance
This child can face uncertain day, because He lives
Singer: Dawt Hlei Tlem (8 Years old) 

Not only does he live, he is coming back again to take vengeance.
It is termed, "The day of vengeance of our God."

This is a good video below. People may think they are going to see lots of beautiful women, but they are not, the bagpipes start playing Psalm 79:10 Wherefore should the heathen say, Where is their God? let him be known among the heathen in our sight by the revenging of the blood of thy servants which is shed.

God is love, the problem is, he did not love Esau.

Romans 9:13 As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.

Think I will do and ongoing series titled "Horrible Blunders."

A few moments ago I got this position in a Fritz rated game. Fritz rating is set at 2398, I am white and it was white to play.

I was quite happy with this position and I played g4. After such a horrible blunder there is only one thing I can do. Stop playing for the night, take the dog for a walk!

Most club players would be able to see black`s best move after white`s g4 move?

Just saw a UK article about a quite young Chess player, who may face expulsion from the UK.

I suspect his Chess would be better supported in India, plus if he stays in England, he will eventually be engulfed in Antichrist`s Kingdom, as England and Wales will eventually be ensnared in it.

I am sure Tania Sachdev will be happy to find him some good sponsorship in India?

Daniel 2:45 Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure.

Local player Daniil Zelenchuk has achieved a good performance in the Glorney cup, according to the UCU Facebook page.

Meanwhile Martin Kelly and Graeme McCormick are playing in some of the British Championship tournaments.

Will Daniil Zelenchuk be competing in the British Championship next year?

Here is a newly made video which is worth watching.

Mark 13:29 "So ye in like manner, when ye shall see these things come to pass, know that it is nigh, even at the doors".


On Friday night, a friend told me about a medication which aids sleep, it is called Amitripyline.

On Monday, I managed to get  a prescription from my surgery for 1 months supply.

On Tuesday night the medication gave me the best night`s sleep I have had in twenty years.

This particular medication was designed for people struggling with depression, I do not suffer from depression but the medication is said to contain a strong relaxant which aids sleep.

It has been working for me since Monday night, when I first started taking the medication.

2 Corinthians 12:9 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

Magnus Carlsen has set such a high standard, it now comes as big chess news if he fails to win a tournament he competes in.

No doubt he has now become hardened to defeats and disappointments and is able to set them aside quickly.

Life is too short for worrying about winning every game, plus it cannot be done anyway.

The video below was created after a series of time losses for all the people in it, including myself, I had lost a won game due to time loss.

Incidentally, the video above is one of the few where Youtube has not flagged up a "copyright warning."

Van Morrison must not worry  too much about people using his songs.
