Mike Serovey Defeats James the II

Here is another chess game played at Stan's Net Chess. This game was a B22 Sicilian: Alapin's variation (3.c3). White played some moves that I wasn't expecting but many of those moves turned out to be blunders. You can see the entire game, complete with analysis and diagrams, at Here is the game in PGN.

New Software Available at My Chess Site

I know how some people hate to give out their email addresses to websites because they are afraid of spam. Well, I have a small solution to that problem. If you want to be notified when I update my chess site you can do so without giving me your email address. I just uploaded a small application that you can get for free. Once installed on your computer it will check my site once a day for updates. If it finds that the site has been updated it will display a small message on your computer screen that tells you that my chess site has been updated. You can get this application by going to and scrolling down near the bottom. The link to click on is just above the button that allows you to make a donation to my site. If you would like to make a similar application for one of your own web sites you can buy the application making software from me for a measly $5.95 for personal use and $19.95 if you want master resell rights. I will upload the application making software and sales page to later on today. Check my Products page for more information.
