1.e4 {AN INGENIOUS EXAMPLE OF MY SYSTEM by Aaron Nimzowitsch -
Anderssen started the sacrificial style, Morphy and Gruenfeld
the pure attacking style, Steinitz the positional style,
Tarrasch the scientific style, Lasker the style of styles,
Capablanca the mechanical style, Alekhine a style as brilliant
as sunlight. But it is a generally known fact that originality
and modernism were introduced by me as my own personal
inventions and enthusiastically imitated (without being fully
understood) by the whole world of chess. For the ridiculously
small sum of ten marks, the reader can confirm all this in my
monumental work, My System, published by B. Kagan. Before my
time, chess was so naive and undistinguished! One or two
brutal opening moves, each one involving a vulgar, obvious
threat, a common, banal sacrifice, a painfully elementary,
bestially raw checkmate - such, more or less, was the course
of chess games before my heyday set in. Then I appeared on the
scene and the chess world paid heed. The hegemony of matter
was shattered at a stroke and the era of the spiritual
began. Under my creative guidance, the chessmen, hitherto
nothing but highwaymen, pirates and butcher boys, became
sensitive artists and subtle instruments of immeasurable
profundity. But why waste words!--accompany me, dear reader to
the dizzy heights of the following game.} e6 2.h4 $1 {My very
oldest and latest thought in this opening. To the chess addict
nurtured on spineless convention, this move comes like a slap
in the face--but calm down, dear reader; after all, you cannot
be expected to understand such moves. (Forgive me - it is not
your fault, until now no one has opened your eyes and ears.)

>> No.77023982

>>77023961
Wait just a little while, and there will pass before you a
miracle of overprotection of more than earthly beauty. (I
assume that I rightly surmise that you are quite familiar with
my great theory of overprotection.)} 2...d5 { Black of course
has no suspicion of What is coming and continues serenely in
classical style. } 3.e5 $1 {A move of elemental delicacy. (We
detest, as a matter of principle, such words as "power" and
"strength"; in the first place, such banal expressions make us
uncomfortable; and, in the second place, we like even less the
brutalizing tendency which such words imply.) Wherein lies the
beauty of 3.e5? Why is this move so strong? The answer is as
simple as it is astonishing. The move is strong because it is
weak! Weak, that is, only in the traditional sense! In
reality, that is to say, it is not the move but the Pawn on e5
that is weak--a tremendous difference! In former times, it is
true, it was customary to reject any move which created a
weakness. Today, thanks to me, this view is obsolete. For,
look, my dear reader, the fact that the Pawn on e5 is weak
obliges White to protect the Pawn more and more until at last
the state of overprotection arises as it were of itself. But,
as we have seen (cf. My System), overprotection is practically
equivalent to victory. Hence it follows automatically that the
"weak" move, 3.e5, is a certain road to triumph. The rest is
more or less a matter of technique. } 3...c5 { All according
to a famous precedent.} 4.d4 {Here it is quite clear that it
is more profitable for White first to provoke c5 and then play
d4, rather than the other way round, which is the customary
course. For, if White first plays d4, there follows c5 and
White's d-pawn is under attack.

But my clever transposition of
moves changes the situation completely. For now Black's c-pawn
is suddenly attacked by White's d-pawn!} 4...cxd4 {What else
can Black do?} 5.h5 $1 {All very clever, original and
decisive! Of course the ordinary run of people who envy my
every spark of genius but cannot follow my line of reasoning
for even three paces, outdo themselves in sneering at me with
the poison-dripping epithet, "bizarre." The text move creates
confusion in the whole Black army and prepares for the
annihilating invasion by the Queen 18 moves later.} 5...Qb6
{Naturally not 5...Nc6 6 Bb5! etc. Why should Black play the
French Defence only to allow the Ruy Lopez Bishop move after
all?!} 6.h6 $1 {An avaricious dullard would never hit on this
deeply conceived Pawn sacrifice.} 6...Nxh6 {After 6...gxh6,
White has an even more comfortable game.} 7.Qh5 $1 {The reason
for this becomes clear after next move.} 7...g6 {Black
threatens to begin a successful siege of the weakling at e5
with Bg7. But White forestalls this.} 8.Qh2 $1 {To every
fair-minded observer, this move must come as a revelation! All
the previous manoeuvres now become clear! White has completed
his development brilliantly and proceeds to overprotect
e5. Against this, Black is helpless.} 8...Nf5 9.Bd3 {Note the
splendid cooperation of White's forces: while the e-pawn and
the King Bishop completely blockade Black's position, the
development of the overprotective forces takes place behind
the broad backs of these sturdy blockaders.} 9...Nc6 10.Nf3
{As a rule this is a routine move. But here it is strikingly
original and as such occupies a place in the treasury of my
intellectual property.} 10...h5 {Old stuff!} 11.b3 {A deep
trap, as will soon become apparent!} 11...Bg7 {How Black must
have rejoiced when he anticipated his formidable opponent in
the occupation of the long diagonal.

But...} 12.Bf4 $1 {...how
bitterly disappointed he must have been to realize that 11.b3
had only been a trap and Bb2 had not been intended at all. The
position of Black's Bishop at g7 is now quite
pointless. 11...Be7 would have been relatively better.}
12...Bd7 13.Nbd2 Rc8 {Black no longer has any good moves!}
14.Ke2 $1 {Again, an extraordinarily deep move. White sees
through Black's plans, and in addition he prepares a
particularly powerful continuation of his strategy of
overprotection.} 14...Nb4 {Just what White was waiting for.}
15.Ne1 $1 {This was the point of his previous move! Black is
now forced to exchange off the attacking Bishop at d3. But,
with that, even White's King Knight enters the fray with
fearful effect at d3, while the square f3 becomes available to
the Queen Knight. Surely a grandiose piece of strategy. The
fact is that I'm a marvellous player, even if the whole chess
world bursts with envy.} 15...Nxd3 16.Nxd3 $1 {Naturally not
16 cxd3? which would have been quite inconsistent. The Pawn on
c2 is unimportant, and Black only wastes precious time by
capturing it.} 16...Rxc2 17.Rae1 $1 {White continues his
overprotection without much ado.} 17...a5 {This counterattack
has no punch. Black would naturally like to get a passed Pawn
plus a Rook on the seventh, but it is too late for that.}

>> No.77024030

Tari throwing a drawn position for his fellow countryman. Very patriotic. No wonder Magnus is getting him invited for every elite tournament.

>> No.77024043

18.Kd1 $1 {Now the menaced Rook must scurry back, for capture
on a2 would be much too dangerous.} 18...Rc6 $1 {At last,
Black gets the right idea: overprotecting his Pawn at e6. But
it is already too late.} 19.Re2 Ke7 {Introduced into
tournament play by myself. See note to White's 14th move. The
King overprotects e6.} 20.Rhe1 Re8 $1 21.Nf3 $1 {Completing
the overprotection of e5 and thus deciding the fate of the
game. Black has no defence. Note the aesthetic effect created
by White's position.} 21...Bf8 {Now Black threatens to
complete the overprotection of e6 by playing Ng7. But White
has prepared a brilliant combination.} 22.g4 $1 {Much stronger
than the obvious Bg5+ etc.} 22...hxg4 23.Qh7 $1 {Now one
clearly realizes the masterly understanding of position which
went into White's eighth move (Qh2!).} 23...gxf3 {Had Black
continued overprotecting by 23...Ng7 there would have followed
24.Bg5+ f6 25.Bxf6+ Kf7 26.Ng5 mate. Black's basic error was
that he started overprotecting much too late.} 24.Bg5# {One of
my best games! I am proud of it if only because Herr
Systemsson is one of the strongest Scandinavian players. The
game made an overwhelming impression on the players and
spectators as well as on my opponent. The game has become
famous in Denmark as "the immortal overprotection game."} 1-0

And what about those kings? What's the point of a piece that doesn't do anything but run away and act as a target? Seems pretty un-kingly to me. Chess 2 solves this glaring oversight with the midline invasion rule detailed in the additional rules page! No longer is your king a worthless incel running away from queens and hiding in his room. Now the king is a Chad game changer who can single handedly claim victory from the jaws of defeat!

You're given a position and have to find the best move

They don't tell you what so it could be mate it could be capturing a piece or a favourable trade or it could just be defending from check properly

Got good at chess. Realized how utterly fucking boring it is and moved on to chess variants. Even Bobby Fischer had to come up with Fischer Random Chess (it's proper name none of that chess 960 bs) to keep things fresh and interesting.

Alas the only problem with being a chess variants enthusiast is that the average person is too of afraid of leaving their comfort zone of memorized openings that the only people you can play against are either super competent also or complete n00bs who lose once and then never play again.

Improves the game by rewarding aggression and tactics, instead of rewarding boring drawn out positional play.

You'd be surprised. Because when you know you have to defend against it you will and putting the king up the board early is still a good way to get checkmated.

dot com analysis is outright worse if you're free (done to a much lower depth) dunno if it's different if you are paying but it's not a plus imo.
Time controls are worse for rapid because it defaults to 10+0 with the others hidden in a menu meaning they don't get queues.

A meme luxury set modeled on Aliens was published years ago. Aliens is a very obvious film to adapt as a chess set, for multple reasons, but I think they could have done a bit better. I will autistically state my ideas below.

-First, the humans are mostly white and the Aliens are mostly black, so this simple detail is obvious enough. The film depicts an extended battle going about two hours in which various pieces on either side are eliminated. Again, obvious basic bitch stuff.

-But the consonances become even more precise when you think about it. The principal cast, the humans involved in the mission, number sixteen-the number of starting pieces for a side. They even rank about right among the pieces. The real set missed an opportunity by having sentry guns as pawns. They should simply have used each principal character for White, as follows:

K: Newt (that which must be protected at all costs)
Q: Ripley
Bs: Bishop (natch), Gorman (officially important in the beginning but not as much later)
Ns: Smart gunners, Vasquez, Drake
Rs: Hicks, Apone (aesthetically and rank-wise, it's a toss-up between assigning Gorman/Apone as N/R).

Once these considerations are handled, a very nice piece of alliteration (usually) unfolds, for the a-pawn through the h-pawn: Wierzbowski (a), Burke (b), Crowe (c), Dietrich (d), Frost (e), Ferro (f), Spunkmeyer (g), Hudson (h). The aesthetics are beautiful: the meme-Wierzbowski is off to one side, complemented by the coward Hudson the h pawn. Dietrich and Frost are in fact among the first two to be attacked, so their status as center pawns makes sense. Keeping Ferro and Spunkmeyer together as the unit that they are on the kingside flank.

This leaves Black. We obviously have q: Alien Queen, but the other assignments are a topic for discussion. The real set erred by having two Queens as k and q. IMO a simple, large egg should be k, opposite Newt, same conceit. Facehuggers as pawns makes sense. r: warrior. n/b: war/chestburst?

Well of course black is technically better according to the meme numbers, but that doesn't change the fact that practically speaking, the endgame seems very drawish.

>> No.77043594

>>77043576
Not the guy you've been responding to, but the point of an open puzzle is to find the best move, not to find a winning continuation. Also, with the more exposed white king and each side having two heavy pieces, I think black's winning chances are more than just marginal.

>> No.77043685

>>77043594
>>77043576
Consider the following quick variation after the puzzle ends

Qd8+, Kh7
Qd3+, f5.

White is already in a bind because he can't bring his queen back to the seventh rank (Qd7? loses to Qf4+, g3, Qf2#) So he has to play something like

Rb3, Qf4+
Qg3, Qc1
Qd3, Rh1+
Kg2, Qe1+
Kf3, Rf1+
Which forces a trade of the queen for the rook and a very easy win now.

Granted, I didn't see all of that from the puzzle position, I am sitting here with a board playing it out, and I'm reasonably sure there's a better line for white, but I think you're underestimating how strong Black's position is.
