Apr-02-04  niom: hejka all:) psyt to ja - megus, megalo z nieshufli :)) a bialymi gra R J Fisher, mistrz swiata ;)

prosze na liscie ruchow kliknac 37... ef4 i przyjrzec sie pozycji krolow na szachownicy - bialy krol na e4, czarny krol na e6; to jest wlasnie opozycja pionowa bliska

gdyby czarny krol stal na d6, bialy zas na f4 - bylaby to opozycja skosna bliska;

a gdyby bialy krol byl na d5, czarny zas na f5 - bylaby to opozycja pozioma bliska

popatrzmy jak potoczyla sie gra dalej: Fischer, mistrz swiata, zagrywa 38 Kf4 wylamujac sie z opozycji; jego przeciwnik zagrywa 38...Kf6 ! pilnujac opozycji; Fischer znow 39 Ke4 i przeciwnik znow Ke6 ! pilnujac opozycji; Fischer jeszcze raz 40 Kf4 i czarne znow Kf6! zatem remis

czarne rozpaczliwie, ale konsekwentnie pilnowaly opozycji pionowej bliskiej, biale probowaly sie z niej wyrwac; gdyby czarne po 39 Ke4 odpowiedzialy np 39... pionek h5, Fischer zagralby 40 Kd5! z wygrana

zjadlby czarnego pionka c5 i swojego pionka c4 wypromowal na Krolowa; po czym nastapilaby egzekucja czarnego krola i koniec partii :p

oj, tak - w szachach ten, kto nie pilnuje opozycji, zostaje rozgromiony; ale szachy to matematyka, tu rzadzi logika - tu brak symetrii i harmonii karze sie lokrutnie :))

o ilez szachy sa cudowniejsze od poezji! :)

  Gypsy: Yes, chess is stranger than poetry. And your discussion of near diagonal oposition, gentlemen, is also quite eye-opening. But only a few of us benefit from your wisdom when you serve it to us in Polish.
Apr-12-04  niom: i wrote it, cause i wanted to show analogy between oposition in chessgame and oposition in poem. And i didn`t do that for members of this site - i think everyone here knows oposition ;)

btw im really happy seeing countrymen here :)

Aug-27-04  wall: Maybe 13...Nd8 is better to protect the e6 pawn. Can't Black win a pawn after 19...Qxa2 instead of the 19...Bxd4 move? Perhaps 21...Rab8 instead of the more drawish 21...Rad8.
Jan-27-05  Dobyr Wecher: I think 12.Ne2 is quite dubious better is 0-0.
