The primary inspiration for this blog was my interaction with all sorts of young chess players. Relax, I still have my chess coaching job, but I've been doing more directing of summer camps, than actually coaching them lately. As a result, I haven't been particularly inspired to write much of anything. I'll hopefully return to coaching and writing at the end of summer. Here's a quick tactical puzzle from one of my recent blitz games that we can all think about for the next couple of months. I lucked into an opening knockout thanks to a blunder by my opponent leading black's move in the position below.
