Kagami no mae de kimi to madoromu usubeni no yubisaki
Sono te wa fui ni yowasa o misete kuchibiru o fusaida
Ano hi kimi to yakusoku o kawashita
Ima wa futari omoidasezu ni

Taikutsu na uta ni mimi o katamuke mado no soto mitsumeru
Boku wa doresu o matoi odottemiseyou kurutteru kai oshiete
Itsuka kaze ni sarawarete yuku darou
Ima wa futari omoidasezu oo

Boku wa naze kaze no youni kumo no youni ano sora e to ukabu hane ga nai naze
Hoshi no youni tsuki no youni subete tsutsumu ano yoru e to shizumu hane ga nai aa

Wasurenaide ai afureta ano hibi
Kimi no kao mo omoidasezu ni
Itsuka kaze ni kaki kesarete yuku darou
Ima wa futari omoidasezu oo

Boku wa naze kaze no youni kumo no youni ano sora e to ukabu hane ga nai naze
Hoshi no youni tsuki no youni subete tsutsumu ano yoru e to shizumu hane ga nai aa

Boku wa naze kaze no youni kumo no youni ano sora e to ukabu hane ga nai naze
Kono ai mo kono kizu mo natsukashii ima wa itoshikute itami dasu aan... ah

Rambling...



I'm pretty bad at taking pictures of myself. I don't know whether I should smile, look serious, show a mean face, laugh, look funny, smirk, grin....

And I end up looking stupid most times...

today's selected chess problem


I can imagine Emanuel Lasker hitting me on the head with his book, Lasker's Manual of Chess, from which I learned all about interference and how it's an often utilized end-game motif. I remember liking his examples very much, introduced themselves from the very basic conception and slowly increased in the degree of complexity.

This is one of the easiest forms of interference, and I messed up :P Maybe because since I begun practicing tactics again I haven't come across any problem with this motif. Thank you for reminding me, CTS...

1. Bb5+ KxB
2. a x B and nothing can stop the pawn from queening...

everything in one post

So I'm back playing again, and decided to have an opening repertoire made up of opening's I've never played before. The English/d4 openings/Reti System for White maybe... and Sicilian/d5 to answer d4 and maybe even the Dutch. Time to explore uncharted waters, have fun playing, and actually experiencing them instead of just understanding the ideas that comes with them. It's just going to be a matter of time when I consistently perform at 1600+ at CTS. Aim is to get to 1700 at CTS by end of next year; only 14 Malaysian CTS handles are at 1700 and above and some are by the same person.

I learned that arc is very important shooting the basketball, the higher the arc, the more useable angle the ball has. Nobody taught me that before! And there I was saying "oh..." as some coach was talking about it on youtube! I was always conscious of not trying to have much arc, thinking it would mess with accuracy, thinking the less distance the ball has to travel (vector wise) would result in higher shooting percentages. My shooting had never been really flat but never had a high arc anyway.

Getting there...maybe not

Ended today's CTS session at 1583. Nearly back to my old form tactically. But glaring weaknesses caused by years of inactivity, in every stage of the game remain. I hardly have an opening repertoire now, forgetting even the main line Marshall and Latvians I used to answer e4. Strategical pawn pushes, my understanding of space, and how to fight and accumulate advantages can hardly be seen in my recent online games. It's as if my moves hardly have any purpose, if at all. So much for those times religiously reading Kotov and Silman books. Endings? I could not find anything natural when faced with rook and pawn(s) endings.

But one step at a time. One.step.at.a.time.
