Kindred’s Special: Let Freedom Ring

Every so often I get the comic bug and present here some joyful fun for my readers.  Often times not, there is just a bit of truth that comes from humor and laughing not to mention hair pulling when your favorite line runs into trouble.

1. e4  e5  2. Nf3  d6  3. d4  Nf6  4. Nc3  Nbd7  5. Bc4  Be7  So far so good!  Anyway, the move that is trouble seems to be 6. Ng5. The only reference I saw was in Alekhine vs. Marco, 1912 , My Best Games of Chess 1908-23 notes that the Knight move turns to Black’s advantage where moving a piece more than once in the opening could be questionable. But now, 6…  O-O 7. Bxf7+  Rxf7     8. Ne6  Qe8  9. Nxc7  Qd8  10. Nxa8  b6  11. Nd5  Nxd5  12. dxe5  Nxe5  13. Qxd5 leaving White a 14 to 10 square count edge.  Here, however, Black has some threats that will change the scope of the position.  13. … Bh4  14.O-O  Bb7  15. Qe6  Ba6  16. Rd1  Bxf2+  17. Kh1  Qxa8  18. Rxd6  Bc5  19. Rd5  Qc6  20. Rxd8+ Bf8 with a superior position.  This goes to prove that, “he who is behind in square count needs a speedy blood transfusion or a swift boot in the rump to stay in the game.”

This Knight move can be seen in another setting.  1. e4  e5  2. Nf3  Nc6  3. d4  exd4  4. Bc4  Nf6  5. Ng5.  This is the Scotch Opening and the move is suspect due to it having again been moved instead of developing with a sharper reply like e5.  Black can pick up the Knight to e5 defending f7, to which White might try 6. Qxd4 Nxc4  7. Qxc4  d5! It is important to hit in the center.  8. exd5  Qxd5 = as played by Stanley against Rousseau, New Orleans, 1845.

A famous Grandmaster noted that his divorce was inevitable noting that their paths were bishops of opposite color.

When visiting the Irondequoit Mall some years ago with my wife, I happened to see some guys playing chess in the food area of tables and chairs that were meant for paying shoppers who purchased eats at any of the various food merchants. Apparently they had frequented this area for some time and so the merchants and Mall owners told them to either buy food or ship out for good.  They could have learned what a little lad was heard to say who was playing chess, “Should we eat a ham and cheese Saemisch?”

Wonder what the schools are up to these days.  So often I hear the cry that children need to feel good about themselves.  Everyone knows a chess battle either ends in a tie or a win and loss for the students.  The cry might go out, “Chess is evil because it doesn’t foster equality within a school club.”  That indoctrination of mindless wisdom or lack thereof seems to be ever-expanding throughout the liberal public school system of which chess practice it is said fosters learning, something known since the 1500s as taught by Jewish mothers to their children.  Self-esteem should not be assumed to be healthful in every instance but rather a recognition that improvement and success comes from work and study and more work and study.

There is an old French Proverb:  YOU CANNOT PLAY CHESS IF YOU ARE KIND HEARTED.  Is that why I never became a great player?  But then, I am in the company of  Isaac Boleslavsky and other talented players who shared a like  laziness when it came to personal aspirations. Such was the lot grouping of Ragozin, Teichmann, Filip, and Sofia Polgar. (The family Polgar considered Sofia to be the best of the three sisters but was thought to be lazy.)  I rather suspect she was an extrovert as she pursued other interests besides just chess that included marriage and children. After a brief run of tournament play, she devoted chess to the Olympics where she excelled playing for her Hungarian team.

I always try to learn from my mistakes.  Sometimes it is just too much to keep track of beyond a moment or day, a week, a month, a year!

    • kindredspiritks Says:

      All articles are written and composed by me. Plagiarism is when a book or material from someone else is copied. However one in that case might ask if any chess game moves cannot be copied? My articles sometimes refer to previous writings by myself or others but I always use a topic in an original piece. Analysis commentary is a good example of such an area you describe. This type material can be historically reviewed by numerous authors who give a twist to the whole thought process. Such a limit placed on it would probably kill interest for writers in chess or their readers./Don.
