Attention!

My latest post is titled Attention! over at GM Nigel Davies' The Chess Improver. Given the lack of reaction to it on Nigel's Facebook page I am unsure if it's just borrring...

or so brilliant, so complete, that no one has anything to add. If you have thoughts on it please share here.

The real question is what to do when you don't know what to do, nor how to eval a position correctly.

Well I'll do a piece on that then!

I don't have a Facebook account, as I have not yet been assimilated by the collective.

Even if I did, having to go to a different site to comment on a blog post has always seemed a bit silly.

Happy to comment here on your posts when you put them up, assuming I have anything worth saying.

i thought it was a great post. why doesn't nigel enable comments on his blog? does he really only want the comments on fb?

anyway - great post.

Thanks for the feedback. I think Nigel is leery of spam and hateful stuff in comments...but he has to police fb too. Anyway, I will continue to post links here and really appreciate your responses.

Hello - Thank you for this fascinating post. I just got back into chess. I have not played for almost 20 years. I am learning that fascination and interest in the action on the board leads to better play, as opposed to, beating myself up over bad moves and blunders. I think this inherent fascination leads to be better attention on the board. I do not think it is the other way around. I am learning to read the board as a story of interaction among the various players. I will let you know how this experiment works. Thanks for book recommendation. Hopefully, it will make me a better player. Otherwise, at least it is fun.
