Novice Nook # 67 Wow, it's been a while since I turned to the Dan Heisman articles. Job intensity, home life, and even OTB tournaments. I just finished a month-long tournament for the Denver Chess Club championship. I scored two wins, a draw and a loss, all against players rated 300 points or more higher than me. In fact, the two wins were against players rated 600 and 500 points higher! I don't attribute it all to the NN articles, but certainly some of the DH reading I've been doing has helped.

This week's article is entitled, "Making Chess Simple". Not a lot new in it, but a good summary of some stuff he's covered before and a nice short excerpt from a book I recently acquired but haven't read, "Chess for Zebras" by John Rowson.

Here's the link. Let me know what you think.

Useful article... ... Mainly owing to the several links he includes to other "Novice Nook" articles.
I still reckon these are a good read and a handy reminder... Thanks, ws!

Thanks Yes, Thanks. These articles have helped me a great deal, and a review never hurts.
Congratulations on your OTB success.
