Welcome Grande Merda, back into the ranks of the Knights Errant. Good luck!

Due to family emergencies this week, less chess than usual. Still playing blitz, and I will summarize the effects of this rebellious phase of blitz-playing pretty soon. The short story is that it has helped my tactics a lot, helped my blitz play a lot (well, ~200 rating points in my blitz play), and helped me realize just how unimportant the opening is at my level.

Hope all is well with the family. Your chess family awaits your return.

my heartfelt warm wishes in whatever matter you must tend with family.

you. no disrespect, but i have been telling you this for one year+ about openings. i have not told you wrong yet, in those regards. when i tell you other things now, and i have not told you too many, but what i have, i mean 100%, will you dismiss those, too?

i hope not. please 'consider'.

ive been down this road.

i did notice your ICC progress, and i think it is most respectable.

warmly, dk

transform: I've always known I shouldn't worry about openings, but liked opening study so much I did it anyway. This blitz has helped make it even more real. I've just been playing whatever the hell I feel in the opening: KG, ruy, whatever, I don't care and it doesn't matter....

It is always more gratifying to say "I told you so" than to see someone actually follow one's advice. :O
