♗  "To my surprise I found that when other top players in the precomputer age (before 1995, roughly) wrote about games in magazines and newspaper columns, they
often made more mistakes in their annotations than the players had made at the board." -Garry Kasparov  ♗

New Wachusett Chess Club Feature: My Week at the Club by Roger Cappallo

Hello All,
I've decided to take a bit of a leap and to post a video each week on my game from the club. If nothing else, it will give you all a chance to prepare for games with me, exposing the gaping holes in my opening preparations.
If you're interested, here are the links.
Cheers,
Roger
