Congratulations to all the prize winners at the Ulster Chess Championships.  Particular congratulations to Danill Zelenchuk who won the senior section.

It is interesting to note the Ulster Championship was Fide rated this year.

LETS PLAY A VERY DEADLY CHESS MATCH PART 21

The 21st part of this series can be read at the link below.

Kincora boy abused by Mountbatten.




Proverbs 6:16 These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:

17 A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,
18 An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,
19 A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.

Nexg6 A GOOD STUDY POSITION


Managed to find Nexg6 in this sparring game last night, it is a good study position, the game went on for another 50 moves as I did not always find the best move for white.

Ecc 12:12 And further, by these, my son, be admonished: of making many books there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the flesh.

LETS PLAY A VERY DEADLY CHESS MATCH PART 20 "Angels with blue faces"

Great expectations are being held out for the upcoming book by the late Lyra McKee. It is called "Angels with blue faces."

The latest article in the Village magazine attempts to connect all the dots.

EXPOSING THE MOST SINISTER & HITHERTO SUPPRESSED SCANDAL OF THE TROUBLES

Deuteronomy 32:35 To me belongeth vengeance and recompence; their foot shall slide in due time: for the day of their calamity is at hand, and the things that shall come upon them make haste.

THE BEST PHOTO ON THE INTERNET HAS RETIRED

Chessbase has published an article revealing Elizabeth Paethz has retired from playing for the German national team.

Some time ago Chessbase published an article which showed Elizabeth Paethz doing her army training. They used quite a few brilliant photos to illustrate the article, the photo below was one of the photos used.

I regard this photo as the best photo on the entire internet.

Ephesians 6:10 ¶  Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
11  Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12  For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
13  Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14  Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
15  And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
16  Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
17  And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
18  Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

LETS PLAY A VERY DEADLY CHESS MATCH PART 19, "It Is Almost Checkmate"

Today`s news reveals Richard Kerr is now suing almost every UK government agency he can sue.

In normal circumstances this would end the match with a checkmate for Richard Kerr.

However, the Kincora scandal is such a sinister and murky scenario, it is anyone`s guess as to what may happen now!

Below is the original documentary from 2015 when Richard first broke his 30 years of silence.










Here is a video I made up featuring Richard Kerr with "The Eye Of The Tiger" playing in the background.


Deuteronomy 32:35 To me belongeth vengeance and recompence; their foot shall slide in due time: for the day of their calamity is at hand, and the things that shall come upon them make haste.

CYRUS LAKDAWALA

Purchased two new ebooks by Cyrus Lakdawala. I did not purchase them because I intend to play the suggested lines, I bought them because I enjoy his writing, he is truly hilarious at times, plus his insight is good as well.



The diagram below is from the Chapter on the Slav and Semi Slav. 


White has just played 6.Bd3, Lakadawala then gives the following comment........"A warning to the reader: our last move walks into theory's teeth and is ill-suited for the lazy with academic shortcomings. We must know our stuff inside out. Studying the endless complexities of this line may cause some of us brain damage or a potential nervous breakdown, but this is the chance we must take."

He does sound like Groucho Marx at times!




Proverbs 17:22 ¶  A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.
