    Bit of a mixed bag at the Congress for me. Won a couple and drew a couple and lost one. Will lose a few rating points. Still was an enjoyable tournament overall. Can't wait for next year.

    Only a few more days to the Cork Congress. A good result for me would be to perform to my rating (around 1500).

    Incredible that Carlsen can effectively give piece odds to a strong GM and still win!

    The Deep Mind vs Stockfish result is amazing especially given how the new AI works. I've always felt that the opening/endgame tables used in modern chess engines were kind of cheating - why couldn't Kasparov take his notes into the Deep Blue game? To see a AI learn and dominate the game from scratch is incredible.

    Saw this great video on Boris Spassky by Lucas Anderson. Looks like there is a whole series on all the world champions.

    Simon Williams is running a great series on his Youtube channel playing long time control games (15m+10s). Well worth a watch.

    The Pro Chess League was interesting but I didn't watch it often as there was no easy way to just watch one team's games so I couldn't easily track how the Irish team were doing. Hopefully next year each time will have their own page on the site showing just their games.
