Chess, The Camel and Zwischenzug



This advert appeared after Arnold Denker won the USA Championship in 1944.

Do you think the artist has captured Denker in the drawing?

Here is the same picture blown up a bit so you can see Denker.

The position where Black gave up is here. (White to play)


The advert says 1.Nxg5 was played so let us have a look at it.


I found quite a few White checkmates with that mating pattern on Red Hot Pawn.

dawgdaddy - skunkk33 RHP 2005

It’s quite possible that Black got tempted into this line thinking the doubled a-pawn
cannot be stopped with a Rook hitting it from behind and so went for the promotion.


This next one also features the Knight Mate from the Camel advert.

A Hall of Doom candidate. Actually I’m surprised it’s not already in there.


We round off with this wee Arnold Denker gem from his early years.

Arnold Denker - Harold Feit, New York 1929


The advert came from: Tartajubow Site

Been a while since we did one of these. Always good rewarding fun.
I can give a clue: ‘You might need a long think on the first move.’

White to play and mate in 3 moves by Sam Loyd, 1868.

It is much easier to show what a Zwischenzug is rather
than explain it.. Here is an example from a master game

Edward Lasker - Frank Marshall, Match (3), New York 1923


Now two examples from RHP games with the exact same pattern.

Oprenovic - Skevara RHP 2011


This is the next one and the position is very close to the Lasker - Marshall game.

ElCuervo - Bombayviking RHP 2016

The Sam Loyd Solution. White to play and mate in 3 moves.
