Listening to a Bobby Fischer interview later in his life, and he made the observation about chess at the highest level among grandmasters that it was about finding that slight advantage at the 17th or 18th move that would decide each game, that is, until about that point in the game, the positions were pretty well known and established.

I am a voracious reader and also enjoy writing. I often have a very different point of view than the popular one. I do see value in debate, and thought it might add to the public debate on controversial issues if I were to express my contrarian opinions. I also started keeping my poems recently (I've written little pieces my whole adult life but never kept any); and I've been a photographer now for over 25 years. So I will be adding an occasional poem and hopefully interesting photograph to the blog along the way, just to spice things up. View all posts by Henry Barnard
