Another amazing recent coincidence.

A competition with a great Chess book as a prize.

(Just had an idea for a chess book. Not:
The Most Instructive Games of Chess Ever Played. But:
The Most Destructive Games of Chess Ever Played.)

A Chess Trick showed to me by a U-Boat Captain and Copy Cat games.

I don't need the book if i at all qualify, the game isn't great and i hope the notation is correct, on top of that i live in belgium, just wanted to thank for the blog. Bought "art of checkmate" on your recommendation and the descriptive notation is really easy to get into and i imagine it has improved my game already having read the first 3 chapters! It will give me enough to study for the rest of my life i'm sure 🙂

You can get a copy of all the games in "Most Instructive..." in PGN format here: http://wwwu.uni-klu.ac.at/gossimit/c/book.htm

I read his "logical chess move by move" years ago, and really liked it a lot. I probably would have got "most instructive..." at the time if it had been in algebraic notation.

It is only $9.95 new on amazon, with free shipping if you spend 25 dollars total, so might be cheaper to actually buy a new one, than have the used one shipped depending on location of the winner lol.

My introduction to chess wasn't quite a forced break in symmetry, but it put me off symmetrical openings for a long time. It was this trap in the Petroff - sometimes, breaking the symmetry is not helpful!

My shortest checkmate here, I was quite pleased with:



I know what descriptive notation is, but it is not natural for me. My father-in-law (who is Brazillian) gave me a chess book not only with descriptive notation but Spanish Descriptive notation. So I need to translate the notation and book via my knowledge of portuguese and descriptive notation!

If it's short mate showing time how about Game 5229133 😏

That trap in the Petroff has caught out loads of players on here.

in 2006 Kopsov User 216649 fell for it twice in the same tournament
Game 2014570 and Game 2014610

Good spot SG.

After winning money with the 5 move one - do it with the 4 move one.
