Day 209 - Wins!

I have gone on a recent winning streak on FICS, bringing my rating to 1601. I also made a separate widipedia site at It has the same text as JavaManIssa, but with Knights Errant instead of Knight Errants. Anyways, I would suggest making changes there, if you would like.

Day 208 - Good Game

I finally was able to get the time to play a 45 0 game on FICS, which I won! It felt good to be able to calculate all of the variations without worrying about time. I am going to show the game here. If anyone knows how to make it play in one of the boxes like Nezha, I would love to know how. Here it is:
1. d4 Nf6
2.c4 g6
3.Nc3 Bg7
4.Nf3 d5
5.Bg5 c6
6.e3 o-o
7.Bd3 Nbd7
8.Qc2 c5
9.cxd5 cxd4
10.Nxd4 Nb6
11.d6 Qxd6
12.o-o-o Qc5
13.Bxf6 Bxf6
14.h4 Bxd4
15.exd4 Qxd4
16.Bxg6 Qf4+
17.Rd2 fxg6
18.h5 Bf5
19.Qb3+ Kg7
20.hxg6 Bxg6
21.Qe6 Qf6
22.Qe3 Qf4
23.Qxe7+ Rf7
24.Qc5 Nc4
25.Nd5 Qxd2#

If anyone is interested in viewing the game, just log in to FICS and type "examine generalkaia 65". Hope everyone else is doing well.

Day 190 - Going Strong

I have recovered from my recent losing streak, and my training on CTS and FICS is going well. I am going to try and teach some kids chess during the school year. If anyone has any materials or suggestions that could help me out, let me know.

Also, I would like to introduce SirJ. I met him at fics. He started his own blog at Http://

Day 186

I just put in everyone's links, and I also downloaded Chess Positions Trainer. However, I can't seem to get CPT to work. I downloaded the 3.1.1 version and loaded it, and then I opened the 3.2 version. I also downloaded the example openings from the website, but it didn't work. I know that some of the knights are very good with technology and computers and I was hoping that I could get some help with the CPT program. If so, that would be great.

I would also like to give a delayed welcome to the new knights, as I have meant to do so for a long time.
