Stoyko Still Kicking

Stoyko-West, Westfield 2006
White to play.

I visited FM Steve Stoyko the other day and he showed me a couple of his most recent games. Despite his occasional health problems, Steve still plays with vigor and is able to conduct a nice attack, as he did against NM James West in a recent Westfield Quad (see diagram above). I look forward to seeing him in action at the U.S. Amateur Teams in February.

Hope we'll see Steve at Kenilworth before then.
