Pawns are the soul of chess. Move too many pawns and you are toast. If you don't move enough pawns, you are cramped for space.

Thank you Jake, lomez.

* French Victories: Game Collection: French - Advance/Tarrasch/Exchange/etc

The Fashion of the Champion by Wayne Proudlove
Posted: Aug-26-09

The success of the victor
depends on the factors
that take shape after the dream/
Obstacles that prevent
him from confirming the win
are like walking a thin and high beam/
For the opponent is prepared
and often uses his skills
in ways that are not quite what they seem/
This holds true
for both those working alone
and members of some kind of team/
But one thing remains certain
and it's through much experience
I've deemed/
It takes not just understanding
or mastery even,
but to perform under pressure extreme.
