The key in chess is to set up combinations; moves that "force" your opponent to react to your threat. The combinations themselves are a series of moves that threaten or execute the double attacks, pins, skewers, etc. The use of combinations also aids the chess player to "look ahead" further moves. The chess player with the brains to see and plot more combinations (a tree structure of moves and counter moves rather than a linear sequence) than his opponent should win, unless of course he blunders.

That's where the novice should begin after learning basic attacks.

Later you may wish to learn some chess openings. The objective of the opening is to gain control of the middle of the chess board, which is strategically the most important. You also need to learn openings if you are to ever engage in tournament play, unless you love to be caught unprepared and enjoy watching your precious minutes tick away before you even have a chance to engage in the middle game, which is where most of your time will be burned.

Personally, I hate the game.


A tangent, but it was surmised in a Bobby Fischer docu that his lifelong hellbent obsession about chess and winning most likely stunted his social skills and/or harmed his psyche in some way(s). Unfortunately, he steadily evolved from a prickly pear to a full blown nut towards the end of his life. Dan Gable, GOAT wrestler, had a similar fixation on his game/sport and winning at all costs or you're an utter failure. His obsessing over losses reminded me of Jerry West. He felt he had to win to make his parents not feel the effects of his older sister being sexually assaulted and murdered in their own home while they were away on a trip. Personalities like theirs are interesting to me, the idea that they have to be loners and put everything aside to focus on the one thing. Wins are merely "loss-restrainers", not feel-good events.

U.S. great hope Fabiano Caruana preps for clash with Magnus Carlsen


Quote:
We’ve been tracking his progress in this space since he was a 14-year-old IM phenom from Brooklyn, winning D.C.’s own Eastern Open more than a decade ago.

Now GM Fabiano Caruana has a chance to match another phenom out of Brooklyn, Bobby Fischer, as he prepares to take on world champion Magnus Carlsen of Norway in a 12-game title match in London. Game 1 takes place Nov. 9, and we’ll have all the action here and at WashingtonTimes.com.

Should the mild-mannered, tough-willed Caruana, now 26, prevail, he will be the first American world champion since Fischer relinquished the title in 1975 and likely will provide yet another boost for the surging American chess scene.

The relentless Norwegian holds a 10-5-18 edge over his challenger in games at classical time controls, but the two have been more evenly matched in recent years, with Caruana just a few ratings points below his 27-year-old rival. If I were a betting man, I’d put this one at too close to call.

Agadmator has one of the most popular youtube chess channel. Here in this link is a game by the legendary Capablanca.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UvDNMfSg3D8&feature=youtu.be


Here is how Capablanca learned how to play chess.

Quote:
‘I remember clearly my first game of chess. I had just passed my fourth birthday – 23 years ago. Depressed with a feeling of ennui, which a hot Havana day ofttimes induces, and having failed in my search for something interesting in the actions or stories of the soldiers of Morro Castle, where it was my wont to spend the greater part of my day, I directed my footsteps to one of the towers of the fort, in order to discuss with my father ways and means for routing this childish ennui of mine.

It might be well for me to explain that my father, though a poor chessplayer, was a good soldier. He was then serving as a lieutenant in the cavalry division of the Spanish army stationed at Havana, in Morro Castle.

As a consequence, my companions were soldiers; my playground a military fort. Here I delighted to listen to the stories of wars, of strategic battles, of military heroes. Here the glamour of military life made its appeal to me. And here was I made to understand, young as I was, the importance to the soldier of a well-planned attack or defense.

Vladimir Kramnik quits chess at 43

The 14th World Chess Champion Vladimir Kramnik today announced his retirement from chess at the age of 43. His last professional game was a loss to Sam Shankland in Wijk aan Zee, but the decision had been taken a couple of months earlier. Kramnik says his “chess player motivation has dropped significantly in recent months” and he now wants to focus on projects “in the field of chess for children and education”. Vladimir will go down in chess history as the man who managed to beat Garry Kasparov in 2000, before holding on to the World Championship title for 7 years.
