Why This Blog?

Welcome to my blog.

There are already many blogs out there, so I will briefly explain my motivation for adding another.

  • An interactive platform for my chess books: fresh examples from tournament play to show my ideas displayed in practical games.
  • Chess training: explain my coaching experience and offer training sessions online, for individuals and clubs, on a wide range of subjects.
  • Technical assistance: my expertise in Chessbase and chess engines such as Fritz and Komodo can help players optimize their training.
  • Strategical thinking: the underlying strategic ideas explained in more detail, to understand what is at stake in a game, and what is going on in the mind of the players.
  • Educational and classic board games: over the years, my interest in other games beside chess has been increasing. My wife and I launched SILU Game Products LLC and our first educational game (Equation Gamble) is out – with more to come in the future.
