Interesting Chess Life Articles

If you haven't already seen these articles, you might want to take a look at these two offerings from the latest (January 2007) Chess Life magazine:

  • Olin Chism wrote about the recent ICC match between the University of Texas-Dallas and the University of Belgrade in his article Serbs Successfully Challenge UTD. He provides interesting insider details about the events, includes an annotated game in which a UTD player comes back from a lost position to win, and offers helpful information about available chess scholarships.

  • How to Win Won Positions is GM Lev Alburt's column in which he takes a game submitted by a reader and adds his own thoughts to the reader's annotations. In one interesting exchange, the submitter writes about a given position, "Black can't do anything to protect himself." Alburt responds that such an attitude "is dangerous and will soon be proven wrong. In a won position, don't relax. Search for the best move!"
