The 2016 World Championship

World Championship match play seems to have fallen on hard times.  At least in the good old USA, specifically New York City.  I missed both games one and two.  The third I got to witness from move one.  The Rochester Chess Center had the game on the wall for easy following of play.  I was missing.  I was home.  I tuned in to the internet where I got an evening of sheer joy and entertainment–no thanks to the amateurish coverage.  Oh, what a strange opening for Carlsen to choose.  Let me see if I can recall the opening moves. 1.d4 Nf6  2. Bg5. They called it the Trompowsky Opening.  And some guy on Tweeters comically called it the Trumpsky after Donald J. Trump.  No one mentioned the idea of 2. Bg5 was to get the bishop outside the pawn wall which developed after 3. e3.  The same would be true for 2. Bf4. It would have been nice and educational to tell the viewers this feature of the opening.

Both players played sound and powerhouse positional chess with Carlsen having a big space/my square count advantage given White.  Everyone kept appraising what the computer had to say which was kind of boring, let alone the weird comments voiced by the tweeter group.  Pieces kept moving about on the demo-board with comments that the whole game looked drawish.  Well, I thought different as I usually do.  Carlsen vs. Karjakin had some really brilliant strategies for what I call power chess which often develops out of positional considerations rather than all-out attacks.  Suddenly the draw long predicted turned into a hot bed of brilliant play by both players.  In the end, Carlsen managed to win a piece but nearly lost to brilliant defense at the hands of Karjakin.  Of course the computer told the reviewers that the game was a draw.  But what  a fighting powerful exchange of brilliant concepts exhibited by both players.  It was a well deserved finish of splitting the point once again. Yep.  The computer predicted a draw.  The commentators agreed.  But the two in this royal battle did not.  They proved themselves worthy of being called great fighters and true champions of chess!–Don (Kindredspirit).

    I always used to read article in news papers but now as I am a user of net so from now I am using net
    for content, thanks to web.

      Thanks for your comment and tuning in to my site. I hope you continue to view my many articles. If you click on the archives, the list comes up for that month. My early articles dealt with my teaching myself the game as I did not have access to really learn from a coach or at school. I live in a rural farm country town (or used to be growing up HA!HA!). My square count I developed as a pre to teen era and my paper I wrote on it I showed to two mathematicians and chess masters who said I had an interesting theory but some of my ideas would not go over with the books on chess. I have used my system in both postal and over-the-board play with success. I developed it because some of my kids I played with found chess rather difficult to learn and apply its principles. I studied the games of the great like Capablanca, Alekhine, and Reti. I studied the chessboard, the relationship of squares that form various geometric patterns. I have enjoyed chess for many years now and always find it an enjoyable practice and way to keep active as a 78 year old now. I am just a few decades over the hill. Enjoy and tell your friends about my site. It is free. I simply want to share my long adventure and walk through life and what I have come to learn from this marvelous game!-Don.

    With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement?
    My website has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either written myself or outsourced
    but it looks like a lot of it is popping it
    up all over the internet without my permission. Do you know any techniques to help protect
    against content from being stolen? I’d genuinely appreciate it.

    • kindredspiritks Says:

      Welcome to my site. I find others using my articles; some tell me thanks. I am told that others have included my stuff on their site. It doesn’t bother me because I do my writing as a personal joy and to pass on to others my over 70 years experience in my hobby of chess and its long history of woodpushers. I write stories, poems and on politics of the day which I suspect appear elsewhere. I really don’t care because with me it is a labor of love and that is why I write–to share with others my years of joy I experienced in chess and friends.-Don.

    Hello! Quick question that’s completely off topic.

    Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My
    site looks weird when viewing from my iphone.
    I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able
    to correct this problem. If you have any suggestions, please share.


    • kindredspiritks Says:

      Welcome to my website. Most get my site by typing kindredspiritks. My son and friends who I gave this connect seem to have no problem with their phone so it may be your carrier or specific phone you have. Hope this helps. Most say my site is very fast.=Don.

  4. Says:

    First off I want to say superb blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing.
    I’ve had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out.

    I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15
    minutes are wasted simply just trying to figure out how
    to begin. Any ideas or tips? Thanks!

    • kindredspiritks Says:

      Welcome. You are not the only one who has asked me this with this problem. Actually I type near a 100wpm and played chess and written about it for over 65 years. I get ideas often before sleeping at night or just working on my computer. I type about 90 wpm and still find it hard to keep up with my thoughts while writing my articles. The more experience you have, the better your thoughts and columns will become. Writing is a great joy!-Don.

  5. Says:

    I’m not sure why but this site is loading incredibly slow for
    me. Is anyone else having this problem or is it a issue on my
    end? I’ll check back later and see if the problem still exists.

    • kindredspiritks Says:

      Welcome to my website kindredspiritks to connect. My site is Kindredspirit’s Kaleidoscope but others had started using this so I shortened it and added ks which kids used in chess instruction with USCF coaching on their site. I was on their expert staff. I think your problem is on your end. I would suggest connecting with your provider for assistance as most of my readers say it loads very fast. Hope this helps. =Don.

    • kindredspiritks Says:

      My only purpose for doing my free site is to bring to a wide audience who have little or no experience or interest in chess to join me in this adventure of building your interest and skill for the game. My approach is different in that I concentrate on geometric patterns as well as piece play and strategies. I call this (square count). I taught myself and have made my system work at least for me. Hope you enjoy the trip through chess history by this amateur.-Don.
