    Here my game with fiachra scallan from last week

    http://www.chess.com/emboard?id=2526580

  2. shahram says:

    The opening is called La bourdonnais opening , named after a french chess player who was regarded as the unofficial world chess champion in early 19th century, who died penniless in the streets of London and forced to sell his clothes at the end , very sad ! . The use of this opening was first recorded in his game against irish chess player ” alexander mcdonnell ” and was used against Labourdonnais himself !! Later , La boudonnais apparently took up the opening and was eventually named after him .

    Fiachra is much stronger and more confident than our last encounter which is good to see .

    As for the game itself vs fiachra went from winning position to be lucky to getaway with a draw !

  4. shahram says:

    Does anyone remember ICU having such a disastrous year in the past ? ,icu has got memory problem now, it’s incredible .In icu calendar , ennis tournament is advertised twice ,while galway rapid in june is all forgotten about ! , May rating list should be out in 2-3 days , malahide is rated while national club championship played prior weekend is forgotten about and not rated and malahide has to be re-rated again as a result ! .

    I’m launching my blog on May 17 , just testing things now to make sure everything in order and blog would be able to handle the traffic, etc .

  5. shahram says:

    I am wondering whether it’s a good idea to start a business of ” teaching Lucid dreaming ! “?, would people pay to learn, how to control heir dreams and be a in place they want to be and see what or whom they want to see in their dreams ? . Lucid dreaming would be useful in chess as well as you can meet your opponent prior to your game in your dream and ask them questions and play against them in your dream !, I have demonstrated this once before on boards.ie . Tonight I’m playing in club championship, but last night I wanted to see my opponent in my Lucid dream and did and asked him what he will open against me and he told me and I played against him in my dream and his 5th move was a blunder according to the engine !, No, I’m not going to study the position !! , I may post the actual game we play, later on tonight or tomorrow …

  6. shahram says:

    The comment the above should have been posted just before I was heading for my game and NOT 5 hours prior to the match , very silly of me as my opponent may see the comment today.

  7. GM Burns says:

    Shahram, if I may be so bold: I don’t think …Bg4 is a bad move at all, since this bishop often gets stuck behind the pain chain in French-style positions. And he gets to swap off your “good” Be2. Also I don’t think you are winning after the rook swap. Difficult to convert that advantage. But moving b4 is definitely a mistake – you need to keep all pawns on.
    Retired GM John Burns
