Over the Board (OTB) Chess is making a great comeback with the Tata Steel event.
I was fed up with how easily Over the Board Chess has given way to online Chess.
Yes it is the fault of this poxy virus but having our top grandmasters stuck in their
bedrooms giving us close up zoom shots of their sleepy eyed unshaven faces whilst
they play click mouse chess wearing gaudy t-shirts or in their pyjamas is just not on.

Turkish7 - AVIRAM77 RHP 2019 (Black to play)
5kb1/6p1/1p2p1P1/1P1pP3/8/2q5/r7/6K1 b - - 0 48
Looks like back in 2019 Aviram was preparing for the pandemic rules.
Black actually can mate with Qe1 or Qc1 but chose 48.Qa1 to socially
distance the Black Queen as far away from the White King as possible.

It’s been 10 years so I thought I would knock together 10 years of the odd stuff.
No games, or positions, just a load of memories that some may not have seen or
others may have forgotten about. I will kick off with something new because it’s
quite brilliant. After that it’s a pretty long trip down a 10 year old memory lane.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I have enjoyed putting this thing together.

Recently I had the pleasure of reading this:
You will understand that a nutshell review is all I can offer because
it is a murder mystery with a strong chess theme running though it
and going in too deep may spoil potential readers enjoyment of it.
