[what is this?] --*-- [what is this?]

  1. Dead Man Walking
    Everybody enjoys a good King Hunt. Except for maybe one person -- and even the loser often seems to play it out just to see what happens. It's an aesthetic thing, you know.

    Criteria for this collection include:

    1) The losing king must have reached the eight ranks at some point, though not necessarily be mate there.

    2) Generally, there is a limit of 50 moves. This collection is limited to opening an middle game king hunts, not endgames.

    Of course, I reserve the right to include amy game that tickles my fancy. And, just incase anybody wonders, the title refers to the chess king, not to the player.

  2. Debrecen 1925
    The tournament was held in Debrecen, Hungary from August 9-24, 1925, with the following players.

    Lajos Asztalos, Ernst Gruenfeld, Kornel Havasi, Paul F Johner, Hans Kmoch, Hermanis Karlovich Mattison, Geza Nagy, Ladislav Prokes, David Przepiorka, Jakob Adolf Seitz, Lajos Steiner, Savielly Tartakower, Arpad Vajda, Vladimir Vukovic

    Chessmetrics estimates this as a Category 11 tournament with an average rating of 2508.

    Hans Kmoch had one of his finest results, winning with a margin of 1 1/2 points. He and Geza Nagy were the front-runners at the halfway mark with 4.5/6. Both lost in round 7, and drew in round 13. In between, Kmoch won five in a row while Nagy lost an additional five in a row!

    And Kmoch needed those wins. Johner had taken the lead in round 7, and stayed ahead until a draw with Gruenfeld and loss to Tartakower allowed Kmoch to coast home in the last round.

    A noteworthy happening was the congestion in the lower ranks, as only five of the 14 players could finish over 50%. table[

  3. DIRP!
    Augustus J. Dirp (1841-1907), generally considered the Father of Anti-Positional Play, holds an unique and otherwise unwanted spot in the history of chess theory.

    While his unfortunate aphorisms such as <Never move a piece twice before you have moved it once> and <Keep your pieces out of the center--they could get hurt there!> still guide legions of aspiring N.N. wannabes to this day, his true colors shown most dimly as a theorist of the pawn formation which bears his name, the Doubled Isolated Rook Pawn.


    click for larger view

    A lifetime of study and hard drinking led to the formulation of Dirp's Credo: <Except in positions where it is neutral, the DIRP is an advantage unless it is a disadvantage.> Though the Credo has never been refuted, its practical application has generally proved disastrous.

    Dirp also has two opening systems named after him, mainly by default: The Dirp Attack (White plays Na3 and Nh3) and the Dirp Defense (Black plays ...Na6 and ...Nh6). The idea, of course, is that capturing the knights will set up immediate fianchettos of the bishops and provide half-open files for the rooks. Meanwhile, the king is sheltered behind the unmoved center pawns and the queen can fend for herself. The two systems are considered so devastating that there are no known examples of them being used.

    Indeed, none of Dirp's game scores have survived, probably due to the Geneva Convention. However, as this collection will show, his ideas continue to infect chess players everywhere, providing a fitting legacy for the man appropriately eulogized as "...quite possibly the weakest player never to become world champion."

  4. Dresden 1956
    I probably would have never noticed this tournament if Olof Sterner hadn't been player of the day. A glance at his record showed we had all his games from Dresden, 1956, which meant we probably had all the games from the tournament. And so we did. So why not do a collection?

    It was held in the East German city of Dresden from February 26-March 21, 1956, and featured this cast of characters:

    Borge Andersen, Yuri Averbakh, Istvan Bilek, Victor Ciocaltea, Sieghart Dittmann, Reinhart Fuchs, Werner Golz, Ratmir Kholmov, Siegfried Muehlberg, Ludek Pachman, Nikola Padevsky, Jan Sefc, Bogdan Sliwa, Olof Sterner, Mihailo Trajkovic, Wolfgang Uhlmann

    The tournament gave some promising new faces from behind the Iron Curtain a chance at some first-class competition. Averbakh and Kholmov, taking a little break from the rigors of playing in the Soviet Union, celebrated their vacation by dominating the tournament. Ciocaltea stayed in the running much of the way, but fell behind by drawing his last four games.

    Using the estimated ratings from Chessmetrics, the tournament had an average rating of 2466 (Category 9). table[
