Feb-03-16  billyhan: I guess now is a good time to say it. From my humble perspective, mismatched opponents always produce the most enjoyable, entertaining, eventful, (etc.), chess games to ever be recorded. In fact, if all players were "grandmasters", chess would lose most of it's popularity and join the rank of the Rubic's Cube. What's a "Laurel" without a "Hardy", a "Costello" with no "Abbott", or a "Smother" without a "Brother"? Just as the "straight-man" enhances the humor of a "comedian", a "patzer" offers the "master" the opportunities to "show his stuff". Names like Paul Morphy, Emanuel Lasker, & Capablanca would not be on the tips of many of today's tongues if not for some their opponent's so-called "bad" moves. Those moves allowed the master's "forced mates" to blossom and be enjoyed by millions of so-called "patzers" the world over. Today, as chess "progresses", the very "heart" of it, the "Check Mate", is rapidly becoming extinct. The strategey/goal of most modern players is to "gain material" so that their opponents will, hopefully, "resign". Apparently, their efforts are succeding, since very few of today's games end in "mate". Relatively few humans are born with the ability to see "forced mates" three, or more, moves ahead. The rest of us just enjoy making the best moves we can. So, if I can't be a grand "master", at least appreciate me as a grande "patzer".
