Chess Tales reached a milestone today: it's 100th post. There's been some smooth shots, a few streaky outside edges and the occasional 'hoick' to cow corner, but that's 100 Not Out in just less than 2 months. (I'd prepared a whole post of cricketing analogies, but I'll stop there).
I started the blog as part experiment / part get a few stories off my chest; the way it's taken off has been fantastic.
I've had the opportunity to chat with some of the superstars of the game, but the most rewarding thing has been feedback from the regular readers all over the world: I hope we stay friends for a long long while.
Ok, I'm off to the attic to discover some more 'lost' chess gems.
