A small ember burned in Brooklyn and the spark carried far. For it’s simple post here rekindled the fire that was once the driving force behind the Knights Errant. Now reborn, the Knights Errant Revival is gathering a legion of tactical warriors on a crusade for chess improvement through the seven circles of hell!
Circling around the Chess Blogs are now the following active knights! Do drop in and offer support.
Brooklyn 64 ( from this point forward dub thee “KE Brooklyn Division”) has completed his first circle MDLM style and shouts out to his fellow knights :
“Ideally, I think we should aim to have a knight in each class section of the large tournament this summer in Philly. With a little luck and a lot of hard work we may be able to put up a convincing performance across the sections. “
I smile… I will see you in Philly my friend!
Takchess ( new and improved link BTW) is following Doc’s orders on Problem 400 Circle 1 of Sharpen Your Tactics according to Last update.
The seasoned veteran, Temposchlucker, offers advice on integrating Strategy and Tactics and his views on what he calls this madness as “microdrills”. Always something good to read there as well as his selection of pictures should be enough of any reader to be intrigued.
Wang’s stupid job won’t slow his quest down as he realizes that tactics is the one thing he can do in spite of a lack of real OTB time due to circumstances. Check it out, He’s already got the CT for beginners worked out and is well on his way through the first circle.
The Improving player is psyching himself up with this linked article about a class B player gaining 200 points in 6 months ( I have only 70 more to go in five). Daily tactical training is in that article.
So that’s it from the Knight’s Errant Revival Round up. Drop in a comment of encouragement to the fellow travelers. Come and cheer them on!
