Journal of the Emerald Specter 83: Building Bigger

The title of this blog doesn’t necessarily mean that I’m going to be changing a bunch of things up. I wanted to leave the title vague enough to be able to accommodate a lot of options, while I’m not necessarily going to be speaking about making anything actually larger, the idea is that I’m going […]

Journal of the Emerald Specter 82: Chess Basho UPDATE!

Are you interested in a chess tournament that happens six times a year with a one move per day time control? Are you interested in competing against no less than 11 other players to fight for titles in a sumo-style tournament brawl? Well, the Emerald Specter Chess Club is for you, then. And to make […]

Journal of the Emerald Specter 77: Life Strikes Back

Things are not going as well as planned… hell, I can’t even plan at this point. When life gives you lemons, you’re supposed to make lemonade. Unfortunately, I have no water or sugar, so I’d just be squirting sour juice into my eyes and that’s already what it feels like, so I’m not really digging […]

Update on the Emerald Specter Chess Club

How are things? They are going swimmingly! There are a couple of items, though. First, while I was initially going to stick to four bashos this year (Winter, Spring, Summer, and Autumn), the tournament is going so well that I’m going to up this to the actual sumo-esq schedule. There is no reason we shouldn’t […]

Journal of the Emerald Specter 73: What’s Coming in 2018?

As you read these words, it is my birthday. I decided to take a look at what is supposed to happen with me, things, and all the other stuff in 2018. That was a terribly put together sentence. The Emerald Specter 2018 Winter Basho is fully underway and things are flowing way better than I […]

Journal of the Emerald Specter 71: Bring on the New Year

Shut your mouth, it’s 2018! Yeah, yeah… I know, “hey DJ, you probably wrote this last year and we are only just seeing it now.” Well, that is true… but I’m a lot closer to the actual release date than previous articles have been over the course of December, so I’m nearly real time. But […]

Journal of the Emerald Specter 64: Emerald Specter Chess Club

After a nearly 3,000 word rambling on my first draft of this column, I have decided to rid myself of the innocuous terminology from the first attempt to just go forward with something far easier to read. The other one was detailed, it explained a lot, I just didn’t really format the thing in a […]

Journal of the Emerald Specter 61: The Chess Story

I’ve told a chess story from the fifth grade on my websites for years, one might even say more than a decade, and I continuously end up coming back to revisit that topic from time to time. I’m not going to recount that story here, again, so don’t worry about that… but I wanted to […]
