Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-08-05  jorgegatica: This is an amazing attack which begins from a typical position.

The player is a fine strategist and better tactician.

Feb-03-07  priapus56: Can anyone explain something to this beginner? I found this game in Chernev's excellent Logical Chess, where after 14. ....Q-Kt1 I read "There is nothing else;the continuation 14. ...BxR;15.RxQ,BxKt;16.QxB, BxR;17.Q-QB6 wins a piece for White." After White's last move I see clearly that he has a choice of pieces to take but after taking it I make the tally three pieces each..so how does White "win a piece?" Far be it from me to question a Master but has Homer nodded on this occasion or am I missing something somewhere?

  tpstar: <priapus56> The alternate continuation suggests trading the Queen for both Rooks trying to avoid White's Kingside attack = 14 ... Bxe4 15. Rxc7 Bxf3 (hitting the Queen) 16. Qxf3 Bxc7 17. Qc6:

17. Qc6 is the hole in that line; White wins the Bc7 or the Nd7, after which White has QBB against RRN or RRB which is a decisive material edge.

Feb-03-07  priapus56: tpstar many thanks for taking the time to explain that..BUT Chernev says "wins a piece for White" and to me that means that after the exchanges White should have one more piece lying on the table, off the board,than Black has! You talk of decisive edge..fine...but piece means PIECE..Has Chernev got it wrong? This sort of confusion is such a drag for beginners to deal with...

  tpstar: <priapus56> The Queens and Rooks are major pieces; the Bishops and Knights are minor pieces. The stock phrase "wins a piece" only refers to winning a minor piece. Since one Queen is roughly equivalent to two Rooks (9 points versus 10 points), QBB over RRB/RRN means White is effectively up a piece. You are correct that both sides have three "fighting units" so to speak, but nobody counts like that. Get it? =)
Feb-03-07  priapus56: tpstar...yeeeesssss(dubiously)..but White, in that case has "won the exchange" not "a piece." Chernev wasn't your uncle was he? Don't get me wrong, his book is excellent for people at my level. The improvement I have made in my game (I've started to beat the computer on idiot level)is due solely to the things his book has taught me..
Feb-11-07  Octavia: <priapus56> Q 9 + 2Bs 6 = 15

2Rs 10 + B 3 = 13

P = 1, therefore wh is 2 pawns up!

I see you've started a week before me -have you finished the book? I like studying it in bed, since there are so many diagrams. Next day i come here to see what every1 else had to say about these games. Its great that they're all here!

I've played a lot of chess, but never consciously thought about the centre as i do now - gives my thoughts a new dimension!
