Chess In Portland – Part III

Okay, I have already offered two other pictures with the same subject, so why a third one? Well, to tell the truth, I liked it and it appears to nicely capture the activity of the day. I have experienced this type of scene in New York City, and just really enjoyed going from table to table to watch the progress of the games. You will notice that the pair in the foreground are not playing with a clock. I always found this to be the most difficult way to play. Without a clock I feel pressured into making a move because of an artificial deadline, but with a clock when I see that my position is lost, I can move quickly in the hopes of running out my opponent’s clock.
