Some times I don’t know why I even bother…

Here’s what a ‘lost’ position looks like:

Lost game
I was white – I lost on time in this position (i.e. it was my move – so that last rook of his, well…). This happens more often than I care to admit when I play blitz or bullet games. On the plus side, my tactics abilities have improved a lot over the last year. I’m currently #60 on the tactics trainer top 100 list on Playchess.

I haven’t blogged much the last few days, so I decided to post a few videos with game analyses below; the first one is from the Norway Chess 2013 Super Tournament, the last ones from the FIDE Thessaloniki Tournament. Incidentally Gelfand just won Tal Memorial, in case anybody cares.
