Bruce Pandolfini's Chess Openings Traps and Zaps.

1. e4 Nf6 2. e5 Nd5 3. Nc3 Nxc3 4. dxc3 d6 5. Bc4 dxe5?? The critical mistake gives White the easy deflection with 6. Bxf7 Kxf7 7. Qxd8

Then I'll let Bill Wall's 700 Traps fill out the rest.

Shaun Press, FM, FT, IA, Member FIDE Rules Commision:

1.e4 Nf6 2.Nc3 d5 3.e5 Ne4 4.Nce2 d4 5.c3 c5 6.d3 1-0 (Black loses the knight on e4)

1.e4 Nf6 2.Nc3 d5 3.exd5 Nxd5 4.Nxd5 Qxd5 5.Qf3 c6 6.b3 Qe5+ 0-1 (Losing the rook on a1)

1.e4 Nf6 2.Nc3 d5 3.e5 Nfd7 4.d4 c5 5.Nxd5 cxd4 6.Qxd4 Nb6 0-1 (The knight on d5 is pinned and lost)

1.e4 Nf6 2.Nc3 d5 3.e5 Nfd7 4.d4 c5 5.e6 fxe6 6.Bd3 cxd4 7.Qh5+ 1-0 (Black gets mated)

1.e4 Nf6 2.Nc3 d5 3.exd5 Nxd5 4.Bc4 c6 5.Nxd5 cxd5 6.Bb5+ Nc6 7.d4 Qa5+ 0-1 (Dropping the bishop on b5)

The Chess Poem by Ayaan Chettiar

8 by 8 makes 64
In the game of chess, the king shall rule
Kings and queens, and rooks and knights
Bishops and Pawns, and the use of mind

The Game goes on, the players think
Plans come together, form a link
Attacks, checks and capture
Until, of course, we reach a mate

The Pawns march forward, then the knights
Power the bishops, forward with might
Rooks come together in a line
The Game of Chess is really divine

The Rooks move straight, then take a turn
The Knights on fire, make no return
Criss-Cross, Criss-Cross, go the bishops
The Queen's the leader of the group

The King resides in the castle
While all the pawns fight with power
Heavy blows for every side
Until the crown, it is destroyed

The Brain's the head, The Brain's the King,
The Greatest one will always win,
For in the game of chess, the king shall rule,
8 by 8 makes 64!

My Forking Knight's Mare
Gracefully over the squares, as a blonde or a brunette, she makes moves that not even a queen can imitate. Always active and taking the initiative,
she likes to fork.
She does it across the board,
taking with ease not only pawns, but also kings, and a bad bishop or two.
Sometimes she feels like making
quiet moves,
at other times, she adopts romantic moods,
and makes great sacrifices.
But, being hers a zero-sum game,
she often forks just out of spite.
An expert at prophylaxis, she can be a swindler, and utter threats,
skewering men to make some gains.
Playing with her risks a conundrum,
and also catching Kotov's syndrome.
Nonetheless, despite having been trampled
by her strutting ways
my trust in her remains,
unwavering,
until the endgame.

"When you're lonely, when you feel yourself an alien in the world, play Chess. This will raise your spirits and be your counselor in war" ― Aristotle

"The habit of holding a Man in the hand, and moving it first to one square and then to another, in order to engage the assistance of the eye in deciding where it shall actually be placed, is not only annoying to the adversary but a practical infraction of the touch-and-move principle." ― Howard Staunton

"A bad plan is better than none at all." ― Frank Marshall

The Dog That Dropped The Substance For The Shadow

This world is full of shadow-chasers,
Most easily deceived.
Should I enumerate these racers,
I should not be believed.
I send them all to Aesop's dog,
Which, crossing water on a log,
Espied the meat he bore, below;
To seize its image, let it go;
Plunged in; to reach the shore was glad,
With neither what he hoped, nor what he'd had.

Isaiah 66:24
24 "And they will go out and look on the dead bodies of those who rebelled against me; the worms that eat them will not die, the fire that burns them will not be quenched, and they will be loathsome to all mankind."

"Believe in yourself. Have faith in your abilities. Without humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers, you cannot be successful or happy." ― Norman Vincent Peale

"Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that." ― Martin Luther King Jr.
