Three Years of the Kenilworthian

It was three years ago today that this chess blog began. Over the last 1095 days, I have managed to accumulate quite a large number of posts. Below I have organized the best by category: Bibliographies and Webliographies, Book and Website Reviews, Chess Instruction, Essays and Features, Interviews and Profiles, Chess in Mainstream Media, Computers and Blogging, History, Annotated Games, and Opening Analysis (with listings by opening in alphabetical order, beginning with Alekhine's Defense and ending with the Urusov). In general, I have tried to find a single category for each item but have on occasion decided to cross-list items in more than one category. This is especially the case with my bibliographies related to specific chess openings.

katar said... impressive corpus of work, which proves the point that-- besides subsidizing the professionals-- "amateurs" also contribute substantively to the public storehouse of chess knowledge. Where else can one get info re: Lasker's QGD or Urusov gambit??? I mean, besides the sites that plagiarize your analysis. :)

More proof that your blogger rating hovers around 2830.
