Former BKJCC member Alan Merry now FM…

Posted on October 16th, 2014 by Richard

FM Alan Merry was a former member of the Bury Knights Junior Chess Club and he performed excellently at the recent Chess Poker Stars Isle of Man tournament.

I post here one of his games as black in the French Defence Tarrasch variation:

Very interesting finish involving a Queen sac and minor piece mating attack..great tactics! 🙂

Well played Alan and congrats on your tournament success!

Alan is playing the Bury St Edmunds Chess Congress at the end of October and I will be playing there too (minor section for me).

Chess Microbase game viewer

Posted on October 16th, 2014 by Richard

I have seen a chess game viewer called Chess Microbase and thought it looked interesting and decided to try it.
I made an example game and am posting it here with Chess Microbase embed code.

Loading embedded chess game…

Well, this game, showing an introduction to the VonHennig Schara Gambit, has loaded and displays here but without the comments that I added. Perhaps I missed a step allowing my game comments to be added. I will check it out and see if and how I can add my game comments and report back later. I’m also wondering if I can adjust the viewer size….

Anyway it works as my first test, and I will experiment some more with it to check it’s full capabilities. I think this is a javascript coded widget and I may explore the coding later also.

Mmmm interesting!? 🙂
