Visiting The Bay Area

Last week, I proceeded to continue work on another 1.e4 Black opening repertoire and using Chess Position Trainer to familiarise myself with move orders. It's something that I've been meaning to do for a long time but just had not have the time to do it.

I'll be heading off to the USA over the next few weeks to visit friends and taking a much needed break. I'll be mostly in San Francisco from next week onwards and onto Atlanta with short stopovers in New Zealand.

I am quite tempted to pop into the Mechanics' Institute at San Francisco but it will have to depend on whether my wife feels up to it. She's about 75% recovered from her ankle surgery.


  1. We'd love to see you at the Mechanics' Institute! We have free tours on Wednesdays of the Library & Chess Room or you can arrange a private tour by calling 415-393-0103 or emailing Taryn Edwards at

  2. hello,

    thank you very much for the invite! :)

    i'll let my wife know about it too - i'm sure she'll be very happy.
