I am Frederick Rhine. The United States Chess Federation awarded me the titles of National Master (at OTB chess) in 1982, and Senior Master of Correspondence Chess in 1997. I played in the 1997 USCF Absolute Championship (open to the top 13 correspondence players who accept their invitations), scoring 6-6 (+2 =8 -2). Alex Dunne wrote in his book on the Absolute Championships, "This was Rhine's only Absolute and he held his own against the best. His two losses were against previous Absolute winners." http://bit.ly/1NB55YP

I attended Lane Technical High School in Chicago with the late Chessgames.com co-founder Alberto A Artidiello until he moved out of Chicago. Lane's chess team won the Illinois state championship my junior and senior years, becoming the first school ever to win consecutive championships. Albert also became a master, as did my teammates Kenneth Mohr and Christopher Kus. FIDE Masters Albert Charles Chow and the late Morris Giles were also Laneites.

In July 2013, I played in my second and third regular-rated tournaments of the millennium(!), the Greater Midwest Classic and the Chicago Class (under-2200 section). I tied for second, undefeated, in both, winning $700 and $550, respectively, and brought my rating back over 2200. http://www.uschess.org/assets/msa_j... http://www.uschess.org/assets/msa_j...

I have contributed to hundreds of chess-related articles on Wikipedia under the handle Krakatoa, notably "First-move advantage in chess," http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/First-... "George H. D. Gossip," http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George... and "Swindle (chess)," http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chess_..., all of which are almost entirely written by me. The first two of those have been Today's Featured Article, the highest honor a Wikipedia article can receive, one attained by about one out of every 1,400 articles. I have received various Wikipedia awards, including the Imperial Triple Crown Jewels and the Timeless Imperial Triple Crown (which only 11 Wikipedians have received). My user page is at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:K....

Forty-nine of my games are in chessgames.com's database. My favorites are F Rhine vs D Sprenkle, 1981, K Thompson vs F Rhine, 1992, and F Rhine vs A Boerkoel, 1996. The first two of these were both published with my annotations in Chess Informant (Volumes 32 and 57), and cited in the Encyclopedia of Chess Openings (Vol. B (2nd ed.) at 183 n.19, and Vol. B (3rd ed.) at 172 n.163). My 18th move (18.Nxd6!) in Rhine-Sprenkle was voted the 8th-9th most important theoretical novelty in Volume 32 of Chess Informant. That game was also cited in MCO-13, and occupies an entire chapter in all three editions of "Beating the Sicilian" by John Nunn. It is game 218 in "1000 TN!! The Best Theoretical Novelties" (Chess Informant, 2012).

I composed this study, which Pal Benko published in "Benko's Bafflers" in Chess Life, May 2006:

White to play and draw

The solution is here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stalem... It is based on an earlier study of mine, which Benko also published in his column. Both of these compositions appear in Harold van der Heijden's endgame study database. http://www.thechessmind.net/blog/20...

As far as I know, I have successfully submitted more puns for Game of the Day than anyone else (134 and counting). Game Collection: Puns I submitted The coveted 2013 Caissar for Best (Worst) Pun went to "Control-Ault-Delete," the pun I submitted for Fischer vs R Ault, 1959, the Game of the Day on December 19, 2012. "As far as I can tell, <FSR> is churning out 'actual puns' almost as fast as I can [insert bodily function of choice]." User: johnlspouge

  centralfiles: As a 1.e4 player who meets 1.c5 exclusively with the Anti-Sicilian 2.c3, I found I was somehow still drifting into Sicilian positions OTB. After painstakingly creating a database <like most things it's actually pretty simple once you know how to do it...> of all of my online games i could get my hands on, I managed to narrow down the culprit to this particular line.

1.e4 g6
2.d4 Bg7
3.Nc3 c5!?


click for larger view

And now:

A) 4.Nf3 <This is what I invariably played <probably to keep the structure most natural to my 1.e4 eyes> with less than "stellar" results>. 4...cxd4
This transposes to the solid Accelerated Dragon. <requiring me to know and understand the entire Sicilian Dragon to play effectively against a prepared opponent...>

B) 4.d5
Now it will probably become a Benoni, perhaps a favorable one for white. <As a 1.e4 player I have little experience with Benoni's only playing the occasional Benoni structure as Black when the position calls for it.>

C) 4.dxc5 This is probably the line Black is playing for. <Yet it seems to offer the only realistic way of staying out of other major systems while trying to keep a theoretical advantage. I'm wary of playing into this position with those horrible c-pawns it seems to be a good practical line for the second player.>

So what do you think is my best practical option?

  FSR: <centralfiles> 4.Nf3 is the most common move. ChessBase Online has 1272 games with it, with another 3753 reaching the same position by transposition. It is obviously a reasonable move, likely transposing to the Accelerated Dragon. However, White has foregone the Maroczy Bind, the most testing line against the Accelerated Dragon. White scores an unimpressive 50.8%.

4.d5 leads to the Schmid Benoni, which is considered to give White some advantage. It is White's third most popular move, being played 840 times in ChessBase Online, with another 235 games reaching the same position by transposition. White scores a quite respectable 61.2%. Karpov vs Korchnoi, 1978 is a famous example. Komodo 12 considers it the second-best move, giving White a +.50 advantage.

The second most popular move (played 1005 times, with 14 games reaching the same position by transposition), the highest-scoring move, and the move that Komodo 12 considers best, is 4.dxc5! It analyzes 4...Bxc3+ 5.bxc3 Qa5 6.Qd4 Nf6 7.Qb4 Qc7 8.f3 and now it thinks Black's best is 8...b6 9.cxb6 axb6 10.Rb1 Nc6 11.Qxb6 Qe5 12.Qe3 O-O 13.Bb5 Rxa2 16.Ne2, eventuating in a serious (+.70) advantage to White. There are quite a few possible deviations for both sides, so you would be well-advised to look at it in some depth.

If you would like to keep open the possibility of playing the Maroczy Bind, you may want to consider deviating with 3.Nf3 c5 4.c4! See IM Jeremy Silman's review of FM Charlie Storey's book on "The Sniper" for more ideas. http://dev.jeremysilman.com/shop/pc...

  centralfiles: Thank you <FSR> Your suggestion of 3.Nf3 is a little tough for me as it narrows down many of white's options when Black does not play ...c5 <most of the time> .

I'm mostly debating the merits of getting to know the schmidt benoni better, I probably need to understand the basic Benoni structures better anyhow just to improve my overall game. So why not start here.

Or maybe just put the time in to 4.dxc5 and possibly get a real advantage...

  OhioChessFan: It just hit me that you have both an en passant and a castling mate. That has to be some pretty rarified territory.

  FSR: <OCF> Yes! Actually, I have two of each, which is astounding. Of course, people play a lot more games today than in the olden days, what with blitz games being available 24/7/365, so there are a lot more opportunities.

My two en passant mates and my first mate by castling can be seen in Game Collection: En passant mates and Game Collection: Mate by Castling.

This past Christmas Eve, I mated by castling a second time. https://www.denverchess.com/games/v... A few comments: Black's defense to my SMG was terrible. Komodo 12 says that my 7.Bxf7+! wins by force.

Around move 10, with my opponent's king dancing around the center of the board, I started dreaming of another mate by castling.

Komodo says that 11.Bf4! would have been by far the strongest move, and announces mate in four. It was also the first move that occurred to me, but it seemed unsporting not to sacrifice more material.

My 11.Nb5+ is weaker, and it would have taken a lot longer to mate (I believe Komodo says mate in 13) if he had played 11...Kc5! His 11...Kxe5 was weak, allowing 12.Qf5#! - which I didn't see. But then I wouldn't have gotten to mate by castling!

I was afraid he would play 13...Kd4, when 14.O-O-O+?! would allow 14...Kc5. If so, I intended to play the sad (under the circumstances) 14.Qd5#.

Happily for me, he played 13...Kd3, when 14.O-O-O! was mate. A nice Christmas present!

  FSR: <centralfiles> Best to spend a couple of hours with an engine looking at 4.dxc5! I intend to do so myself.

btw, the line arising after 4.d5 is called the Schmid (not Schmidt) Benoni, after GM Lothar Schmid, who is probably most famous as the arbiter of the Spassky - Fischer World Championship Match (1972).

See Repertoire Explorer: Lothar Schmid (black).

  FSR: I believe that I have reconstructed from memory a tournament game that I played in Ron Washington's Chess Shop on North State Street in Chicago about 1974. It is one of my shortest wins.

Milford?-Rhine, Chicago 1974. My vague recollection is that I was rated 1420 and my opponent 1520.

1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 f5 4.Bxc6 dxc6 5.Nxe5

Not a good line. 4.d3 or 4.Nc3 was much better.

5...Qd4 6.Qh5+? g6 7.Nxg6 Qxe4+?!

Black gets a virtually winning advantage after 7...hxg6 8.Qxg6+ Kd8. I wasn't very good and didn't realize that my queen on d4 was defending my rook on h8 in this line. Probably even better is 7...Nf6! 8.Qh4 (best) hxg6! 9.Qxh8 Qxe4+ 10.Kf1 Qxc2 11.Nc3 Kf7 -2.16 (Komodo 12). Another possibility is 7...Ng4?! 8.Nxh8? Qxe4+ 0-1 Butler-Jacobi, U.S. Open 1983 (a knight check will win White's queen), but 8.Nf4! Qxe4+ 9.Ne2 would allow White to equalize. All of this was far beyond me.

8.Kf1 Nf6 9.Qg5?

9.Qh4 was mandatory, when Komodo says that Black is better after 9...Qxc2 10.Nc3 hxg6! 11.Qxf6! Rg8 -0.46.

9...Rg8?

9...Qxc2! 10.Nc3 Ne4! is winning for Black.

10.Qxf6??

10.d3! Qd4 11.Qf4! leaves White up a pawn +.40.

10...Rxg6 -+ 11.f3 Qxc2 12.Na3 Qd3+ 0-1

Winning White's queen for nothing. My opponent resigned in shock and horror.

This seems to be as good place to start as any. Engines and databases giving white an edge but still easy to see how a prepared Black player might be happy playing in to this.

  FSR: An entertaining banter blitz game. GM Jan Gustafsson loses his queen for a knight, wins back his opponent's queen for a rook, and eventually draws by a weird forced repetition of position. https://www.denverchess.com/games/v...

  FSR: An amusing game: https://www.denverchess.com/games/v... My inspiration was the famous game F B Arnold vs M L Hanauer, 1936. In such positions one has a pleasant choice between N-K5 or BxP+, either of which wins at least a pawn by force.
