Welcome to issue #2 of ICCF Amici.
This issue has an historical view of the first recorded
postal game (1804) some book reviews, an article about the
Sokolsky Memorial and a message from ICCF President Josef
Mrkvička. I would like to see more. I
would like to see a lot more for our next issue which is
scheduled for December. Readers who have interesting chess
games they would like published are invited to submit them
(with annotations, preferably deep ones!) Of course I would
like to have items of interest to correspondence players
everywhere. ICCF Amici is your forum. Use it!
Correspondence chess has a rich tradition that has barely
been tapped. Present day email has techniques and tricks as
yet hardly explored. News of major correspondence events
are always welcome. Opening analysis, middlegame analysis,
endgame analysis – all that is germane to correspondence
chess is wanted here. Send us your wares!
