Something that’s fun for chess patzers like me is watching really good players play blitz and seeing how much further their chess intuition goes. This is normally savoured at live tournaments but I just discovered Banter Blitz which pits grandmasters against patzers like me – and quite good players as well. Anyway, the reason I checked this out is that the grandmaster is David Smerdon who is Australian and indeed works for the Australian Treasury – or did. Anyway, apologies for those who don’t like this kind of thing – it’s not such an imposition – they don’t have to check it out. But for those who might enjoy it – enjoy.
