Weekly Progress Reports #82-83

I did 4 hours two weeks ago – mostly a league match which I and the team managed to win, thereby saving us from relegation.  Last week I did almost no chess – just 20 minutes or so of online blitz – as my (60 page) 4th-year project report was due in on Friday.  My league game is below – a 6. Be2 Najdorf/Scheveningen encounter with a young player from the club who is improving very rapidly, and is certainly worth much more than his current grade of 95 (=1410 ELO).  I got a good-looking attack, but for a long time it looked like his tenacious defense would show it to be just bombast and bravado.  Fortunately for me he eventually erred.
