If Trump Played Chess

gbidari

Undoubtedly he would play 1.b4, The Orangutan! Well that settles that.

Crazychessplaya

He wouldn't respond to 1.e4 with 1...e6.

ThePawnWould

Well he definetly would only play if he was white and his openning would be along the russian lines.   If he made a bad move, he would take the piece  back a couple moves later and pretend it did not happen. 

The only attack he would launch would probably be against your mother.  I like trash talk but it would be too much even for me.  And of couurse if won, everyone else loses.

No, no, OBVIOUSLY he'd play the Stonewall...

maybe if he was born without the ability to make tons of dosh, but that may have been a possibility only in an entirely different universe.

hilary for prison where she would play pafu's hippo system and beat bloodgoods rating of 2702

ChessOfPlayer

He would play the sicilian because it is rich with theory.

thegreat_patzer

He does play chess. He wins because he needs his ego stroked and there are plenty of hungry climbers in his company willing to stroke it. He opens with 1.h4

Trump does actually play chess... I don't know how good he is, though. #makechessgreatagain

Chess Life (1968) published a problem that he composed when he was 22. See http://en.chessbase.com/post/hillary-clinton-looking-for-irina-krush

thegreat_patzer

In the February issue of Chess Life 1968 (which incidentally sold at 65¢ at the time) we find an attempt by the Republican front-runner Donald Trump, just 22 years old at the time, to establish himself as a chess problem composer:

Donald Trump, Chess Life 1968

White to play and mate in four moves

The solution given by Trump is: 1.Qxd7 h5 2.c8=N+! Ka6 3. b4 h4 4.Qc6#. Very nice, except that in the March isssue of Chess Life a reader pointed out that the problem had a dual: 2.c8=Q+ Kb6 3.Qdb7+ Ka5 4.Qca8#, making the main point – underpromotion to a knight – unnecessary. Trump threatened to sue the reader and the magazine, but then the reader published a second letter (in the April edition of CL) showing that 2.c8=B+ Kb6 3.b4 h4 4.Qb7# and 2.c8=R+ Ka6 3.Rb8 h4 4.Qa4# also work. "This makes the problem a classic allumwandlung," [which is a chess problem where, at some stage in the solution a pawn is promoted variously to a queen, rook, bishop, and knight] "so we must praise the composition as a valuable contribution to the art," he wrote. After this Trump said he "accepted the apology" and withdrew his lawsuit. We have not found any further compositions by the real estate tycoon.

and too be very Un-trumplike.

I apologize. apparently the guy does know a little chess.

interesting article. thankx.

The DonaldOther players love me, they love me.  Little Marco can't play chess, he can't reach the board.  Lyin' Ted's father was there when Fischer met Castro.  I like pieces that haven't been captured, alright.  I play with a hugh bishop, really huuuugh.  Naturally, I like beating my opponents, but I really enjoy beating my bishop.  Give me a break.

Hillary: I always play the Stonewall on my chess server at home even though I get my pieces killed ... ummm, captured.  I give lessons at $225,000 a pop that goes to my chess foundation, and they get pre-arranged wins in return.  Everybody wins!  I'm blitzing my way to power (and between you and me (in hushed tones), that's what counts, right?)

Bernie: Winning should be for everyone, not just a handful of masters and grandmasters.  The top one percent of all the players win 90 percent of all the games in this country.   We need free sets, free boards and free wins for everyone.

A crackpot stew of candidates.

He would tell the story of how he once beat both Kasparov and Karpov in under 20 moves in a specially arranged secret blindfold simul held at Trump Tower in 1986. He paid appearance fees to both players as a birthday treat to himself and was the blindfolded player. As for his playing style, such a vast array of dubious BS is played by Trump that all opponents become confused and lose.
