Kindred’s Special: A Postal Gem from Ray Reithel’s games

Earlier I presented a review of my older brother’s postal achievements and presented some of his games. Here, I add one game that my brother noted in his collection as being: “one of my better games.”

Social Quarterly, CCLA 1971 Master Section

Raymond Reithel  (White)  vs G. Stayart (Black)

Opening: The King’s Indian Attack

1.N-KB3 P-Q4  2.P-KN3  N-KB3  3.B-N2  P-B3

This sets the tone of the defense that restricts options too early. A better plan might be 3…B-B4.

4.O-O  P-KN3

Again my opponent chooses a dubious idea when classic play was available yielding good development of forces. A better plan would be 4…B-B4 5.P-Q3  P-K3  6.QN-Q2  N-R3 (Zvetkov-Smyslov, Amsterdam 1954). Now, my idea is to neutralize the fianchetto with…

5.P-N3  B-N2  6.B-N2 O-O 7.P-Q3  B-B4  8.QN-Q2  Q-B1!

This move threatens to exchange the fianchettoed K-Bishop so to weaken the light squares around the King.

9.R-K1  B-R6  10.B-R1

Naturally I avoid this with my 9th and 10th turns.

10. … R-Q1 11.R-N1  Q-B4?!

This aggressive plan is faulty in that he will find the Q in some danger and also is not prepared for such action. I was expecting something like 11. …P-B4 and 12. …N-B3 with play against the center and developing forces.

12. P-K4  Q-R4 13. P-K5

The objective of my plan is to cause restriction of movement in his camp.

13. … KN-Q2  14.P-Q4  P-R4

Aiming to get some space and action started on the Q-side.

15.P-B4  P-K3  16.Q-K2  N-R3  17.P-R3

Keeping active my policy of restriction.

17. … N-B2  18.N-B1  BxN 19.QxB P-KN4 20.P-R3 N-N3 21.N-R2     22.B-KB3  Q-N3  23.P-B5  N-B1 24.Q=K2 PxP 25.B-R5  Q-B7             26.Q-B3  R-Q2

It seems like ..R-B1 is indicated here. This move turns out to be a bit waste of time and not very effective.

27.R/K-QB1 Q-Q7  28.QxNP P-R3

Stopping the threat of 29.N-B3 and 30.NxP!

29.QxNP N-K2 30.R-B3! QxQP

Now presented here is a perfect example of the f-square weakness.

31.BxPch! K-R2

Taking the Bishop would be disasterous.

32.R-B2  Q-K5 34.R/1-QB1 R-QN1 35.QxR NxB 36.N-N4 P-Q5 37.Q-K8 Q-Q4  38.N-B6ch BxN 39.PxB N-N3  40.P-B7 N/K3-B1 41.R-K1 P-Q6 42.R-Q2 QxQBP 43.Q-K3 Q-B4 44.Q-K4 Q-N4 45.R-K3 R-B4 46.R/3xP R-K2 47.Q-B3! R-K8ch 48.K-N2 N-K3 49.P-B8(N)ch

The Knight is immune to capture because I mate in two starting with 50.Q-B7ch. Now, on 49…K-N1 50.NxN(K3) RxN 51.R-Q8ch R-K1 52.Q-Q5ch K-B1 53.Q-B5ch K-N1 54.QxNch K-B1 55.Q-N7mate!

This is one of the finer games from the tournament and illustrates the quality of chess in social quarterly events.
