Kindred’s Kaleidoscope: Xerox Recreation Club Simultaneous

In 1971 the Xerox Recreation Center had a very active club which fielded two teams in the Industrial League. In training the teams, preparation included both class participation and active play. On this occasion I gave a simultaneous so as to gauge the skill developed from the sessions.

1971 Xerox Recreation Club Simultaneous

Don Reithel  (White)    vs   Cecil  (Black)

Opening:  Caro Kann Defense

1.e4  c6  2.d4  d5  3.Nc3  dxe4  4.Nxe4  Bf5  5.Ng3  Bg6  6.h4  h5.

About the time this game was played some attention was given h5 as playable in one of the chess journals. However, the best move is 6….h6.  I was not at all familiar with the h5 idea.

7.Nf3  e6  8.Bd3  Bxd3  9.Qxd3  Nf6  10.Bg5  Nbd7  11.0-0  Qc7  12.Rfe1  Bd6  13.Nf5  0-0-0  14.Nxd6+  Qxd6  15.c4  Rdg8  16.g3  Ng4  17.Bf4  Qe7  18.a3  f6  19.b4  g5  20.hxg5  fxg5  21.Nxg5  Rxg5  22.Bxg5  Qxg5  23.Rxe6  Ndf6.

Black brings the Knight into position to assist in the attack against White’s monarch. The maneuver is too slow as it takes two or three tempi to effect a hostile action.

24.Rae1  Rg8  25.f4  Qh6  26.Qf5  Kb8  27.Re7 h4.

Note how White’s square count is growing which is often a sign of pending disaster.

28.Qc5  Rd8  29.Qa5!  Rc8  30.Rxb7+  Kxb7  31.Re7+ (1-0).

I made a copy of the scoresheet using a xerox printer.

Unfortunately Mr. Cecil was transferred so he never had the opportunity to play on the Xerox squad as I recall but was one of the potential starters. Both teams represented Xerox and finished with respectable totals in the league.
