Pieces score in endgames. — I watched many endgames in which a player who has only a Rook doesn't win against another player who has only a bishop. Searching in Internet about this fact, I've found 90% Rook vs Bishop is a draw. And I know a player who has 2 bishops (without pawns) can win against a lonely king, while 2 knights, play online chess ...

Scrap the stalemate rule! — I have never felt that the stalemate rule is fair. my reason for this is that before the word checkmate came into the game of chess people would have to physically capture the king before that. Saying checkmate was just saying to your opponent that there is no possible move that they can make to av, play online chess ...

Novice Nook #72 — Well, we've moved into the 2007 articles with this week's entry. It's entitled "Trading Pawns When Ahead" and provides a number of straightforward examples of when to trade and when not to trade pawns. For the most part, pretty simple, but worth a look.

French Defence, What do you play as White. — Hi there,
A question for players who play the French defence as their main opening.
What openings would you play as white ? I know this is dependant on the response by black. Is it a similar setup to the French, or totally unrelated?
What was your thinking in choosing these setups ? ... f, play online chess ...

Chess Hustling, a Look Back — Part of the fabric of night life in New York City, particularly during the summer, are the street chess games. Dozens of chess players in places like Washington Square Park, Union Square and St. Nicholas Avenue and 141st Street are up all night, taking on all comers, for a few dollars a game. The games are fast and gritty and often peppered with non-stop and colorful banter. Chess hustling has been around for many years, but how and when did it begin? In 2007, a hustler named Kenny, who went by the name Little Daddy, and who had been hustling on the street for decades, said that the guy who started it all was a man named Bobby Haywood. He said that Haywood appeared one day in ...
The Catalan chess opening: what would Topalov do? — The Bulgarian is an aggressive chess player. But the Catalan doesn't bring about a quick victory. RB When you see that the chess player with the move is Topalov you immediately start thinking tactics â€“ quiet, careful improvement is not the Bulgarian's style. So, using the player's identity as a clue, and with an additional hint provided by the absence of a knight on f6, my eye is immediately drawn to 1 Ng5, with the twin threats of 2 Qxh7 mate and 2 Bxb7. Let's have a look at how Black might counter: 1...g6 might not be as bad as it first appears. After 2 Bxb7 Rb8 both the bishop and knight are en prise. Here I would be tempted to ...
Carlsen Secures at Least a Tie for First at Kingâ€™s Chess Tournament — All three games were drawn in the penultimate round of the Kingâ€™s Chess Tournament in Romania on Thursday, which assures Magnus Carlsen, the top seed, of at least a share of the title. Carlsen now leads with 6.5 points, one point ahead of Boris Gelfand of Israel and two points ahead of Teimour Radjabov of Azerbaijan. None of the games on Thursday was a barn burner, though Carlsenâ€™s opponent, Liviu-Dieter Nisipeanu of Romania did employ a surprising chess opening: the Schliemann Defense. The Schliemann, which was first used in the 19th century, is almost never played anymore, particularly in top-level competition as the conventional thinking is that White can almost always get ...
Carlsen Wins King's Chess Tournament by Wide Margin — The Kings Chess Tournament in Romania ended Friday with a bang, not a whimper, as Magnus Carlsen of Norway, the top seed, won the chess event with one of the most impressive performances of his short career. He finished with 7.5 points, two more than Teimour Radjabov of Azerbaijan and Boris Gelfand of Israel. Gelfand had trailed by one point before the last round, but he lost to Radjabov, while Carlsen beat Wang Yue of China. Wang ended up in last place with 3 points. It was a strange last round as Black won all three games. Over all, there were more wins with Black in the tournament (8) than with White (7). Though Carlsen, the worldâ€™s top ranked chess player, has ...
Womenâ€™s Chess Grand Prix Off to Very Fast Start — There has been figurative blood on the walls at the Womenâ€™s Chess Grand Prix in Jermuk, Russia. In the first two rounds of the chess tournament, which is a round-robin, meaning each competitor faces each of the others once, 11 of the 12 games have been decisive.
