Even though Curtains (IM Greg Shahade) has been busy with USCL, he still managed to find time for some 5 minute chess. You can see the recent videos, here, here and here. Speaking of the USCL, site favorite, Steve Farmer has contributed his expert analysis of recent Arizona Scorpion matches here, here, here, here, here and here.

Some posters we haven't heard from lately have been active too: Whiskeytown contributed an interesting video on Analyzing the Soltis Way; Zeitnotakrobat gave us one of his instructive Snippets videos; Calm found time to play his his roommate and arch-nemesis Fuzion; Augelmo (NM Frank Johnson) contributed a couple of lively games, here and here. Site stalwart Fox graced us with a fascinating endgame from Goganov - Shomoev, 2013 and Gorgonian shared his analysis of a recent game.

Last but by no means least, our Polar Pugilist, Zibbit (FM Ingvar Johannesson), treated us to a exclusive video of one of his patented Chesscube Massacres.
