The Ultimate Answer to Chess

Well i never thought i would see the day that these words would leave my mouth, but here goes;

‘I’ve found the answer to chess’.

I can’t believe it either, its such a massive revelation to my journey. This means i can get a complete understanding of how games are lost, won or drawn so i can enjoy dissecting and evaluating my own games in the future.

The Answer does not make for pretty aesthetic viewing, so if you are a chess purist this may not be your bag. The Answer is thwart with ugly but effective moves that get the job done. The Answer doesn’t waste time with superfluous ideas or manouvres. In fact the Answer can be downright weird in its application, but it has the advantage of getting the job done.

What a great week 🙂


Caveat to self: This doesn’t mean I can now win games, it means I know how players are jostling to gain advantages. My games shown in the video highlight my key success’s using the ‘Answer’ but I also have loads of games where my opponent beat me to the ‘Answer’.


Chess the ever evolving mystery 🙂

How to deliver the most powerful kick to Protect You

Greg trained long and hard into the night, working on perfecting the deep strategies and tactics required to make his side kick as strong as possible. Each training session he focussed so intently on making this kick more devastating than the last kick. He worked hard, he worked fast and too his credit his kick had improved, but still he wasn’t quite happy with it. His kick could move the largest of training bags both static and swinging, favouring the almighty impact he could get from powering through focus shields and sending people flying 5 feet. His kick was awesome, his kick was powerful, but yet he still wasn’t happy.
