The longest mate TableBases 6 pieces by Orphee
At this adress you can put a position with 6 pieces and most of the time you are given the TableBase result. http://www.k4it.de/index.php?topic=egtb (I have used it to check the nice study of Benko given at http://www.jmrw.com/Chess/Benko/base.htm, the last of the list) Does anybody has looked for one record length mate using these TableBases ? - With 5 pieces One can get positions needing...

Sam's Games from the World Open by Sam Sloan
I played poorly in the World Open in games 4 and 5. I do not know what went wrong with me, especially in Game 4. Perhaps these games can be used to lure another opponent into a one thousand dollar grudge match like the one I won the previous weekend in Chicago. The last game, which I won, was fairly interesting against a promising Junior. My score of 6-3 earned me a prize of $37.50, but was...

fighting spirit in a chess tournament by [email protected]
Writing about the recent Biel tournament, ChessBase says at http://www.chessbase.com/newsdetail.asp?newsid=2541 that "The statistics of the men's section shows 63% (19 of 30 games) draws, with White winning 27% and Black 10% (eight and three games respectively). If we compare these numbers to the Ladies Tournament we get the following pictu We have to praise the fighting spirit of the women...

Schildberg - Studie Germany 1915??? by [email protected]
I ran across the following wacky game and find it unbelieveable! It looks like it was composed by the two players -- or, given that the name of one is supposedly "Studie" i.e. a "study," perhaps it's a composition that found its way into a database. Is anyone familiar with this gem? Thanks! Schildberg,E - Studie Germany, 1915 1=2Ee4 d5 2.e5 d4 3.c3 f6 4.Qf3 Kf7 5.Qxb7 Qd5 6.Kd1 Qxg2 7.Kc2 Qxf1

Internet Chess Club Suggestion by [email protected]
I would like to propose to the ICC and Blitzin devs a new option as a result of an amazingly frustating and common occurance on the ICC - signing off after a win to avoid a rematch. The option is called "Auto Rematch." It is based on the same concept as "No Escape" where you are charged a loss if you disconnect during the game. "Auto Rematch" would charge a loss if your opponent sings off...

Tim Hanke vs. The Freedom Fighters by Sam Sloan
By now, Tim Hanke should be happily in a fox hole over in Iraq, shooting it out with the Freedom Fighters. On Jan 29 at 8:34 pm, under "USCF Governance" Tim Hanke wrote: "This may sound quaint to you, but my only agenda was to save the USCF, which was about to go out of business in 2003. "Now that I have saved the USCF, I'm looking around for something else to do. This is why I re-joined the...

Qualifications by Sam Sloan
I have met Bill Hall and I feel that he is a good choice and will make a good executive director. He certainly could not be worse than a few of the others we have had. He seems to understand clearly who his new boses are and he made the shift in allegiance quickly. The real question will arise if and when the new board decides to move out of Crossville. That will not happen for a while, however.

Karpov vs FIDE by PeteCasso
Almost as 'cute' as the USCF vitriol Karpov lands a first blow against FIDE http://www.chessbase.com/newsdetail.asp?newsid=2495 The empire strikes back http://www.chessbase.com/newsdetail.asp?newsid=2537 FWIW, I'm pro-Karpov. First, there are precedences that actual chess players make good FIDE presidents (Euwe, Olafsson). Secondly, just about any change

Tips for Grade-School Chess Club by Chaim
I'm considering starting a chess club at my son's school. He's 9 years old, and the school is K-8. Because the school is small and the interest is not widely shared, I expect members from several grades and varied levels of ability. I am not a particularly good player, and I've never been in a chess club. My thought was that I would try to match comparable players, and each meeting give out a...

Biel Last Round by PeteCasso
Leader Volokitin drew his uneventful game at move 26 against tail-ender Carlsen. Chaser Gelfand won an exciting game against Nakamura, and chaser Pelletier is still playing. Volokitin and Gelfand are well on to sharing first prize (not sure about any tiebreakers), since in the game Bauer vs Pelletier, White has a significant edge in a blockading position. Nakamura went gung-ho apparently trying...
