A Cool Chess Player and Queen Skewers.

This is me showing off my super-duper looking Edinburgh Chess Club
jersey and club cup and coaster. By all means ‘checks al checks’ and
watch out for those loose piece, but always and I mean this, look cool.

I posted this on Face Book to make them jealous but there I called the
‘cup’ a ‘mug’ very soon one wise guy quipped; ‘I can see two mugs!’

But enough of this tomfoolery, on with the blog.

First we look at this study by Dr H Neustadt from 1897.
The theme is how two advanced pawns beat a Rook.

One of the instructive positions was in that study was what if Black had taken the Bishop.

It is easy to see that the Rook after h7 cannot stop the h-pawn. A pattern worth knowing.
In this RHP game both players miss this idea till one of them forces the other to play it.

We saw in the Dr Neustadt study how a Bishop given itself up to push through a pawn.
Next we have an RHP game that has so much instruction in it, it could almost be a study.

I found this next one on a page of combinations to solve in a 1958 CHESS Magazine.

Lilienthal v N.N. White to play. (can anybody supply any other details?)

Two clues, first ‘Checks ALL Checks!’ Next clue is a Red Hot Pawn game.

Now prove that can you earn from non-masters games and solve;

Lilienthal v N.N. White to play.

This next RHP loss is unavoidable and painful (but let Hak’s pain be our instruction)

And finally both players move their Kings to the wrong squares.
Black turns a win into a draw, White turns the draw into a loss.
