Kindred’s Special: Can a card game teach anything about tension and tactics?

I return to the golden age of 1980 to my chess writing hero, GM Larry Evans,  who touches on perhaps one of the great mysteries finding some explanation of tactical bonding toward unleashing fireworks and successful attack.  How?  Not by chess words alone but referring to a card game he played as a youngster called KNUCKS.

All games have strategies toward successful operating results.  Such was this game.  He discovered early that both success in winning resulted in like action.  Build on the material structure and heavy forces  and then timely discard your trumps in logical sequence  avoiding using such cards individually. Of course in chess that is represented by tactics: exchange, a check,  a piece threatened or dominance of a sector.  Would it not be more profitable to tie these individual threats into a package where their might and power can be launched in a violent and deadly attack.? That would be an ongoing melee of tension and pressure hitting the enemy forces with the best chance for winning the prize.

Review many games given in my columns or that you study from chess books or magazines and this observation and truth can be seen again and again.  It also speaks to the value of square count.

Bobby Fischer once compared the strife in chess as being like boxers going three rounds  in a fight.  Fischer was simply referring to an exhaustive factor of tiring in a chess fight. But let me go further by saying Fischer may have continued to elaborate on a point not considered. Just picture two fighters in a ring exchanging body and head blows.  Both do not rely upon a single tactic like a head shot to the jaw or  body blows to tire the opponent.  No.  It is often a combination of such strategy and tactics meant to wear down the opposition for a clear knockout.  And that may come from a sudden flurry of punches that arouse a cheering crowd! How much greater would have been his observation.

Finally, can we not agree that this lesson may reach into the bowls of political upheaval.  But there is one difference from such an association with the thoughts coming from this lesson.  Lack of purity.  Lack of quality.  Lack of commonsense.

Stupid is as stupid does. Thank you, Forest Gump!
