The Chess Brain + A Strike + Hungarian Trap

[b]The Chess Brain

This is a picture of some bod at the latest Olympiad.....

the bod

.......and in that jar next to him…

the brain

…is his chess playing brain.

This brain knows everything about chess.
Two minutes before the game the player pours this brain into his
left ear and catches into another jar his daytime non playing brain which
falls out his right ear.

Brain swapping is now widespread in the chess world, everyone is doing it.
This is why during the Olympiad you never saw any player suddenly leave
their game and go home.

When they have their chess brains in they don’t know where they live.

For a modest fee chess brains can be ordered from and come
complete with a catching and pouring jar and instructions.

The operation to enlarge your ear hole for ease of transmutation is an extra option.

And it finally happened…


…America’s Sign Writers have gone on strike.

A game from the Olympiad.
Just before he made his 11th move Black dropped his pencil,
when he bent down to pick it up his chess brain fell out.

(I bet you have never seen anything like that as a piece of chess notation before.)

C. Chipanga (2138) - O.Nakapunda (2073)

Interesting opening trap in the Hungarian that one.
After 7.Bxh6…

….it would appear Black has lost a piece.

Indeed 4 guys on RHP has resigned here thinking they were lost.

zyga65 - hennion RHP.2005
scrumpymanjack - lbthree RHP 2006
AADavid1963 - Tukumnieks RHP 2007
baggies - Marko Krale RHP 2007

White’s best after 7….0-0 is 7.Nxc3
Bringing the Bishop back to c1 holding the b2 pawn fails to Nb4.

7.Bc1 Nb4

And who has caught who in a trap?

8.Qd1 meets 8…c2 winning back the piece.

I like 8.Qh5 you have to sac a Rook (a mere flesh wound).
8.Qh5 Nc2+ 9.Kf1 NxR 10.Nxc3

White is going to play h4 and Ng5 and win (sometimes).

Good Luck and let me know if you try this.

    When asked about his choice to send the sign writers union on strike Steve Signerman, head of the union, held up a blank sign. What a feild day this is for Boeing executives.

    Hi Marik.
    I'm sure I've seen 10Kg7 played and it looks OK.
    The e7 Bishop kind of gets in the way a bit and looks good
    on g7 with h6.

    Think White's attack will always need an inaccurate move by
    Black to get home. Bxc3 was a terrible move for a 2000+
    to play.


    It is clear on the instructions.
    If the chess brain falls out then put in normal brain, wash
    chess brain and return chess brain BEFORE making a move.

    He played the 'brainless' Bxc3 and it was 1-0.

    with the chess brain on the floor and the other in a jar, he had no idea where the toilet was.
    the latest from is a hybrid to avoid this sort of thing. pricey though.

    Can't black simply play 10..Kg7, saving the h-pawn (where as otherwise it falls) and relieving the pin?
