AUG01/10 Is ...h6 a useful move for Black in the Torre? This game demonstrates that he must be very careful if he chooses this path.
AUG01/01 Exploiting structural weaknesses is the theme of this month's games in the Tromp.
AUG01/02 If you are going to allow pawn weaknesses in your position, please make sure that you get decent piece activity in return, or your pawn structure will come back to haunt you.
AUG01/03 A very courageous game by the Scottish International Master John Shaw against Mr Trompowsky himself. Black unleashes a novelty, grabs a hot pawn and lives to tell the tale. Bravo!
AUG01/09 Looking for a line against the Colle? This could be your baby.
AUG01/06 White plays way too solidly against his highly-rated opponent and pays the ultimate price. Strong players like nothing better than passive play from their opponents.
AUG01/04 A kingside fianchetto remains the most solid way of dealing with the Stonewall. White pays the price for some overly creative play in the opening.
AUG01/05 A model Stonewall victory. Prepare for a bloodbath!
AUG01/07 Could this game be the answer that Black has been waiting for? Barry expert Mark Hebden is able to prove no advantage in one of the Barry Attack's main lines. The ball is now firmly back in White's court.
AUG01/08 Hubsch Gambit: White tries an alternative to the usual main lines and must have soon been wishing that he'd stayed on the beaten track.
