    Black's move.


    I am in Amsterdam since yesterday. Mario Biondi cancelled his gig (I wish him diarea and farting attacks on all other gigs), but I payed air tickets and hotel (non-reffunfable) so I am here.

    On Max Euwe Plein there is a street chess table. I noticed this position on my way back to the hotel.

    Hi vandervelde ,

    On Sundays, weather permitting , I use to spend the whole day playing
    on such a set in Dortmund in the 70's.



    Were the kibitizers arguing for 1...Ne4 to played on first glance
    it looks like it may win a piece but after QxQ - Rc1+ the Queen can drop back.

    What a coincidence. A large open chess set on place called Max Euwe.

    I don't like the pawns they look like wee Bishops.
