Chess Blogging in a More Mainstream Venue

Francis Porretto at Eternity Road, an excellent blog that usually deals with matters like politics, religion and saving Western Civilization, presents a chess game for our perusal:

It’s an offhand game between club players, not a contest between grandmasters, but the rolling evolution of the thing, marred only by a couple of indifferent moves in the early middle game, still struck me as instructive (from his comments).

He also notes that: I’m a devotee of the Larry Evans approach to chess and chess analysis, and his four-part treatment of the game (time-space-force-pawn structure) has always been my favorite way of approaching the game.

He has also annotated the game from this perspective. An interesting appearance for chess outside of the 'chess blogosphere.'
