  • Deep Blue - Kasparov, Game 1 of 1996 Match

    IBM's Deep Blue (White) plays against World Champion Garry Kasparov (Black). This match, and particularly this game, made chess and computer history. Millions of people worldwide followed the match live via the Internet. For the first time ever, a computer beat the reigning World Champion in a chess game at normal (slow) time controls. Now -- play for White and discover for yourself how Deep Blue beat the Champ. (OPTIONAL) BACKGROUND READING: Computers have performed progressively better in recent...
  • Browne-Quinteros, Wijk aan Zee 1974

    In this challenge I will illustrate what can happen if you move your queen too often in the opening and neglect developing your other pieces. The board position arose after the opening moves 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 d6 3.Bb5+ Bd7 4.Bxd7+ Qxd7 (nowadays 4...Nxd7 is considered more ambitious) 5.c4 Qg4?! 6.0-0 Qxe4 7.d4 cxd4 8.Re1 Qc6?! 9.Nxd4 Qxc4?.
  • D. Joseph 1922 Endgame Study

    This is from an endgame study. I hope you will find the "geometry" and artistry to be as beautiful as I found it to be. It should be noted that without the queens on the board, this position is a draw. White has an obvious advantage that his pawn is advanced, but without queens, the black king can never be driven away from a8 and b8.
  • Variation D. Joseph 1922 Endgame Study

    As Black, you are "on the ropes" -- threatened with an immediate knock-out. Do you have any recourse?
  • A. A. Troitsky 1896 Endgame Study

    An endgame study by one of the most famous and prolific of composers, A. A. Troitsky. White has a bishop and pawn to the good, but if Black can manage to ensconce himself on h8, White's light squared bishop will never be able to oust him. Although this study is not ALL that difficult, its sparse elegance is both aesthetically pleasing, and extremely instructive in showing the precise coordination between the white pawn, bishop and king.
  • Blatny-Donaldson, US Olympiad Captain IM Donaldson

    PAVEL RINGS DONALDSON'S BELL This game was played at the Marshall Chess Club as part of the 'Enhance' Grandmaster International in March 1996.
  • Marc Leski - Art Wang, Long Beach 1995

    IM Marc Leski has outmaneuvered NM Art Wang (Aficionado's Managing Director) on the queenside and has nullified Black's pressure on the b-file with the knight on c1. On the other hand, Black's pawn on a6 is vulnerable and White threatens to wreak havoc by re-deploying his dark square bishop to a5 via d2. Black was very lucky to win from this inferior position. Leski had been inactive and was rusty, but he recovered from this uncharacteristic performance and won all his remaining 4 games. The theme...
  • Art Wang - Zsuzsa Polgar (1), Long Beach 1995

    NM and Aficionado's Managing Director Art Wang is a heavy underdog against GM Zsuzsa Polgar in the first round of the 16th Annual Lina Grumette Memorial Day Classic. White's ambitions in the opening are modest. He merely wants to survive and avoids any sharp topical lines where his GM opponent would be much more knowledgeable and prepared. Accordingly, White chooses a Stonewall type setup, and surprisingly, he actually achieves an advantage from the opening against a much stronger opponent.
  • Art Wang - Zsuzsa Polgar (2), Long Beach 1995

    NM and Aficionado's Managing Director Art Wang has survived the opening with GM Zsuzsa Polgar in the first round of the 16th Annual Lina Grumette Memorial Day Classic. From an earlier challenge, we have arrived at the end of the opening with a plus for White. The current challenge involves transforming the edge from the opening into a positional advantage in the middle game followed by a further transition into a very favorable endgame.
  • A Tal Tale by US Co-Champion GM Nick de Firmian

    The ex-World Champion Mikhail Tal played with imaginative flair and unmatched brilliance in attacking games. In this problem you are to find the continuation of his game with Boris Spassky from the Montreal super tournament of 1979.

    Classic Endgame Study
