Chess for Blood Blog Retires

It's a sad day for the chess blogosphere as one of the most popular chess blogs (and a personal favorite), Chess for Blood is now officially "Closed." For any who have not read this blog closely, I recommend its Sitemap, which lists the best articles since January 2006 when it all began. My favorite posts have been on opening analysis (especially the Chigorin-Stonewall, Qd6 Scandinavian, and Anti-Opening Openings), chess videos (his first is still my favorite), and using free chess software (including to compile a free database). But I have enjoyed them all for their consistent style and tone, which always projected a manly attitude toward the game with an emphasis on attack. Blue Devil called it the chess equivalent of SpikeTV, which I find especially apt. Its forays into amateur chess video making alone will leave a lasting mark.

I hope it turns out to be like other bloggers who say they are leaving for good. Dennis, you, DonQ, etc..

It is hard to stay away.

Over/under on next post on his blog: 100 days.
