"Don't be a Lipscheutz" Master Chess.
If there was one thing I would actually change from that section it may be that.
I give a couple of Lipscheutz games where he blows won postion with
the same theme.
What an awful thing to say about a good chess player.
I was so cocky and crude back then. However it appears to have stuck so if
players have learned from their blown losses then so be it.
Mind you I'm not looking forward to meeting Lipscheutz once inside the pearly gates
him holding my book and calling me across.
"I've been wating for you....."
Think I'll put one of his good wins on The Corner. It might save me from
getting a harp smashed over my head.
It's not only the same notes you see, mind you some of the
standard, "White is better, Black is better" are hard to avoid without having
your reader clambering for a dictionary at every note.
It's the same old games you see time and time again.
Well read players will know these game.
Zugswang, The Double Bishop Sacrifice, Amos Burn and his pipe,
Gold Coins, A Famous Exchange Lopez, The Pearl....
The Evergreen and Immortal, The 5 Queens game (which never happened)
The Torre Windmill game.
Wiki has a good example but it mentions Torre (see below)
Morphy at the Opera (great game - Mammoth Chess has it 8 times)
Game of the Century - which the player himself deemed not good enough
for his own collection of games.
And Karpov's 24.Nb1 v Spassky, Leningrad 1974. must be the most often
produced diagram in the history of chess.
I have one of rant's about it here.
And when a Knight moves White will win it. 1-0.
