Chess art in a game.

    Here is a cool looking position I had in one of my games.
    To make the masterpiece complete (art wise), I should have just waited with Rc8, and persuaded white to play Rd1 for kicks, with a funny looking position actually. So many pieces on the d file, and at the bottom cramped into white's camp.
    So 30.Qe3 Rc8 31.Rd1 Rd8, with the d-file piece town, with a symmetrical piece structure on the c,d,e files.

    Yeah, it is very rare to see an entire file or rank occupied in a serious middlegame!

    This really goes to show the difference between open- and semi-open files.

    Now that I'd call a creative mind. 

    Only some can understand art.

    Indeed bjazz.

    32.Qf2 is aesthetically pleasing.

    I once played a game where all four bishops were on the d file.  It happenned within the first dozen moves, too!
