  cormier: Carlsen vs Bu Xiangzhi, 2017

Sep-10-17 Clement Fraud: BRAVO!! I like the way Bu Xiangzhi plays. White loses out in this opening when he plays d2-d3 so early, as this allows black to equalize with his Bishop placed on e7.

To refute the Hungarian Defense, white needs to keep open the option of playing d2-d4 (1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Be7? 4.d4!).

2. Morphy vs McConell
3. Shaw vs Zeidler
4. Horn vs Liardet
5. Capablanca vs Scott
6. Levenfish vs Alekhine
7. Spielmann vs Nimzowitsch

in the second example we dive into the game Morphy vs McDonell where white wins thanks to a rapid lead in development. In the third video we see black lose too many tempi with his queen in the early stages of the game, for which he will be punished very dearly! In the fourth video, we study a gambit where black prioritizes his development in place of material game while in chapters 5-6 we examine a few games by the former World Chess Champions Capablanca and Alekhine – all the while emphasizing their energetic and attentive styles of play from the very first moves. Lastly, we will analyze a game where white plays very ambitiously in the opening to create powerful long-term outposts to stage a deadly attack!

It's true that the aforementioned game transposed from the Bishop's Game into the Hungarian Defense (a defense which is rarely seen but interesting, I think). The position that arose was in fact a form of an hybrid between the Hungarian and an offbeat line of the Prussian (Two Knights) Game.

And yes, d3 seems too passive.

Nisjesram: <cormier> regarding your post - yes , you and I agree. However, we would know only on further elaboration whether we both talking same thing or different things.

So far , yes , as you said stillness is peace. Yes and peace can be very , very deep. Ultimate peace/stillness is when we have no thought, no desire/fear/emotion. Much before we reach that level of stillness , we are able to ' see soul'. And when we reach that ultimate level of stillness/peace , then we are able to 'see' what Jesus 'saw' : direct experience of The Ultimate Truth.

  cormier: a google translation and a little translation from me

<<<<<<<<<<Pope Francis: a homily marking the depth of the human being and that will go down in history ... Read it ...>

"To be happy is not a fatality of a destiny, but a success for those who can travel in themselves">

"You may have flaws, be anxious and always angry, but do not forget that your life is the largest company in the world - only you can prevent it from failing - many of you appreciate, admire and love you. Remember that to be happy is not to have a sky without a storm, a road without accidents, a work without fatigue, relations without disappointments.>

To be happy is to find strength in forgiveness, hope in battles, security in moments of fear, love in discord. It is not only to taste the smile, but also to reflect on the sadness. This is not only to celebrate successes, but to learn the lessons if we ever fail. It's not just about feeling happy with applause, but about being happy in anonymity.>

To be happy is not a fatality of a destiny, but a success for those who can travel in themselves. To be happy is to stop becoming a victim and become the author of your destiny. It is to cross the deserts to be able to find an oasis deep in our soul. It is to thank God for each morning, for the miracle of life.>

Being happy does not fear your own feelings. It's able to talk about you. It's having the courage to hear a "no". Trust is on the lookout for criticism, even if it is not justified. It is to kiss your children, to pamper your parents, to live poetic moments with friends, even if they hurt us.>

To be happy is to let live the creature who lives in each of us, free, joyous and simple. You have to be mature to be able to say, "I made mistakes". It's having the courage to say "I'm sorry". It's having the sensitivity to say "I need you". It's having the ability to say "I love you".>

May your life become a garden of opportunity for happiness ... In spring, a lover of joy. In winter, a lover of wisdom. And when you make a mistake, start again. Only then will you be in love with life. You will find that being happy is not about having a perfect life. But use tears to irrigate tolerance. Use your losses to strengthen patience. Use your mistakes to carve serenity. Use pain as plaster of pleasure. Use the obstacles to open the windows of intelligence.>

Never give up ... Never give up on people who love you. Never give up happiness, because life is an incredible performance. ">

Pope Francis>
