Openings

'Have you ever felt like one of those pawns forgotten in a corner of the board, with the sounds of battle fading behind them? They try to stand straight but wonder if they still have a king to serve.'

Arturo Perez-Reverte
The Seville Communion

Well, not quite. This blog is just getting started, although the action is elsewhere on the board.
