New Chess

I'm gong through a chess phase again.

My son is learning the game and getting good enough to put up a decent fight when we play. Meanwhile I'm reading The Rookie by Stephen Moss. It's the book I wanted to write but never got around to (there's a lesson) about playing the game, being fascinated by it but not necessarily being any good at it.

Today I used a new (to me) chess app to watch a game that happened in Tehran between Zhongyi Tan and Anna Muzychuck. I came in near the end and witnessed a queen free punch up with Muzychek refusing to give up until the very end. I loved it.

Here's the game, if you're interested. Soon I'll be posting again about my musical life, where there have been some changes.
