--------  IF YOU LIKE AND ENJOY THE GAME OF MONOPOLY, YOU WILL LOVE CHESS ------
 
   By Alonso Acuña Barba
 
 
   Hello Allan,
 
  I hope you remember and enjoy this article inspired by you and Ana, when we were sitting in the big round table and Ana was wondering WHAT MOVE TO MAKE.
 
  The following explanation was "born" by the need to help writer Ana Segovia, daughter of writer, poet teacher Tomas Segovia , and wife of Scottish photo-journalist Allan Dawson.
  Ana knew how to play chess, but played slow and  desperate because she had a hard time understanding "the main goal" of each move.
 
  My idea to give her this explanation is so her husband and her could both HAVE FUN and ENJOY chess by playing blitz (fast) games, also known as "Bullet Chess"..
 
  After listening to this brief explanation that relates the main objective in the well known game of Monopoly, Ana put these ideas to practice in her one minute blitz games  and played with joy and ease and defeated (!) her husband and thereafter also won another match against another friend (Pablo "X").
 
:) happyIf you have played Monopoly where you buy "properties" and thereafter you start adding "houses and then hotels" to them become "majority owner" this will help you understand how to "buy" the most "expensive" and "important" properties on the chessboard.
 
 Chess is an "equal opportunity game".
 
  In a game of chess the chessboard  is "a I gridded sketch of a small neighborhood"" with eight horizontal streets and eight vertical streets, and instead of putting houses and hotels to occupy build on the properties, you place a pawn in a central square to become owner of half of downtown delimited by the four central squares e4, d4, d5, e5.
 
   One of the most important ideas or concepts in the game of chess is to "dominate the center", or at least 50 percent of the center (downtown), since your opponent also has the same opportunity.
 
   The four central squares in "downtown" represent the business zone in the "small neighborhood" where the main services are located,: such as the grocery store, shoe shop, the park, vegetable and fruit shop, schools, barbershop etc. are located.
 
   Basically, when you place a pawn in a central square of the chessboard you become " In essence,  "50 percent owner" of the neighborhoods commercial zone (downtown), just like when you put a house or hotel in a property in the fun game of Monopoly.
 
   The fun thing also is to see how aware you are of how the chess pieces and pawns interact in their actions in the center.
 
  To accomplish the goal of becoming "majority owner" experienced players suggest WE "develop our pieces in a harmonious manner, so they "aim" towards the center and it is also good to "aim" or "attack" your opponents pieces that are aiming towards the center.
 
  It is a custom to shelter, protect, or castle your king because at the beginning of the game he is like a "baby", he is vulnerable and needs to be protected, since the "heavy" pieces (queen, rooks, bishops, and knights) are like "trucks" or "heavy machinery" that may cause him harm if he is in downtown.
 
   Most parents will never think of sending their "baby" downtown to buy bread, nor school, nor the movies......
right ?
 
   But your "baby king grows of age and slowly but surely gets stronger and fit to become a boy king capable of going downtown to buy groceries, bread, and go to school, movies, etcétera.
  
   Your king becomes an independent and useful boy when he is no longer vulnerable, and this is the case in chess when the "heavy pieces" "disappear" from the neighborhood.
 
   When this comes to happen, walk your king towards the center, downtown, so he may help and collaborate with his pieces in helping to dominate or monopolize the center, or at least maintain the balance if both players continue to be "50-50 owners" of the downtown commercial zone.
