Public Goals -- Join the Movement!

A chess blogging friend, Chesstiger, has started a nice project collection Chess Goals for chess bloggers. As a firm believer in peer pressure, I have gladly joined the movement.

My long term goal is to reach 1700+ at ICC before turning half a century old or before trading my chess books for tic-tac-toe books (whichever comes first).

Join the Movement!


  1. So which ranks are controlled by the white queen? I don't know.

  2. Ranks are the vertical rows on the chessboard. So in this example the white queen controls only 1 ranks namely the d-rank.

    Maybe it usage of words but the options to choose from 6,5 or 4 seem to imply a different usage of the word rank then I do.
