Re: Candidate Moves in this position

Nbc3 looks to be the logical move, then develope other pieces and Castle. Get Rook on the open K file and wait for black to create a weakness !

Re: Do you consider this bad sportsmanship?

Surely the clocks should be left to run. If a player gets short of time, that's his fault. It's all part of the game.

Re: e2e4 High Wycombe Congress : 12-14 October 2012

All Sean's tournaments are most enjoyable and High Wycombe was no exception. I was luckly enough to be playing my games in one of the smaller rooms where the lighting and conditions were perfect.
Now looking forward to Basingstoke !

Re: Arkell's Odyssey

I bought a signed copy of Keith Arkell's new book at Paignton and consider it the best and most interesting chess book I've read in a good many years. I thoroughly recommend it .

Re: Etiquette when reacting to draw offers

How about when the opponent offers a draw when it is his turn to move as has happened to me recently ? Should one say " make your move first " or say " I'll think about it " and sit there till his clock runs out !
