Another week, another video! :)

Sunday, March 21st, 2010

If you’ve posted a comment in the last five days and it hasn’t appeared, I’m working through the backlog of what Akimset has tentatively classified as spam. I’d warn spammers not to bother (again!) but it wouldn’t do any good. For those out there otherwise posting comments, I hope there

Aside from that, I got by the club on Saturday and played a couple of games. One of them is now immortalized on video here. ( ) It is a good object lesson on why pawns and their protection can be a valuable thing in a game.

I’m hoping in this next week to resume updating the blog two or three times a week. Which probably means Murphy’s law will kick in and somehow try to prevent that. But here’s hoping… ;)

New Video – “I hope you relish it as much as I!”

Tuesday, March 16th, 2010

Since I don’t have to worry about my Blog problems immediately, and I didn’t get over to the club tonight for play, I decided to record a video and upload it to

So here’s the link over to it. ( for the link-impaired out there.) Like Tranya in the Star Trek episode The Corbomite Maneuver, it’s just for entertainment and not a “serious chess video.” But making these videos are one way I enjoy my chess, and I hope that watching it will help you to

Enjoy Your Chess!

New Video

Sunday, February 14th, 2010

I’ve gotten a new headset microphone (pretty simple – a $25 Logitech model,) and have now broken it in with a new video over at The video location is here, and the game referenced (an Ammonia Opening) is now up here.

Enjoy your chess!

The Day After…

Sunday, January 31st, 2010

a really depressing movie about nuclear holocaust in the 80s and people surviving in light of it. ;) (Trek Trivia: The Day After was directed by Nicholas Meyer – the force behind Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, and was involved with Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. KHAAAAAAAAN!!!!!)

I went ahead last night and did analysis on my losses. My most serious blunder of the tournament is now immortalized over at – have a look! Not quite as bad as nuclear holocaust, but a close analogue over the chessboard.

And life goes on… time to do other Sunday/Sabbath things now. :D

Enjoy your Chess!

A Video Blogpost for TDs

Just some creative things I’ve done with my rulebook for tournament usage, courtesy of YouTube.

More Chess Video Action

Thursday, January 21st, 2010

I’ve done a couple more chess videos. Rather than upload to YouTube (and hit their 10-minute limit and have to split every one of them up,) I’ve been posting exclusively to – a site that I do have to get a link to in my sidebar! ;)

My two videos cover a loss I had and a draw that I took. Those two are available at these links:

My second video – QGD in tournament play

And my third video – you get to see what I look like in addition to a draw in a Sicilian.

I’m no expert, by any means. Sometimes I might use Fritz 12 to help confirm my analyses, but mainly I’m just doing these videos for fun. It’s a great way to enjoy my chess, and in watching them I hope you’re able to

Enjoy your Chess!

Video Experiment

Monday, January 18th, 2010

I uploaded a video in two parts to YouTube, and both parts in one upload to (After uploading, I discovered that what sounded like loud audio to me is really extremely quiet.) I also learned that, like my posts, I can go on and on without intending to. So, without further ado (and because I’ve got to get to bed so I can work the floor at tomorow’s tournament,) here’s both parts of the video:
