Incredible Chess Matches,.. Short Videos.


Recommended Posts

I loved the story. I could almost see her myself. It has been my experience that chess is like many avocations, you have to play a lot to be in form or have any hope of getting better. I actually remember watching the Fisher/Spassky matches of 1972 on PBS with them moving cardboard pieces around.

There was a time when I was reading books and plating regularly but I have not played in years.

For the Squirrel.    One blindfolded match.  They are not allowed to see or touch the pieces, but have to rely upon memory as the pieces are called off numerically.

Fuck!  I can hardly make my way to the bathroom in the dark. 

This was not the game I was looking to send you, but it will do.

This also confirms to me what I had always suspected; that these incredible grand masters are a bit of a servant when it comes to chess.  They probably have one whole noodle of their brain that is totally dedicated to this type of bewildering shit.

Can you imagine.  They have to remember where every piece is on the board, even as things get jumbled about during the game. 

I can just see me in one of those blind folded matches. 

Woodworker:  :scratchchin:    "E2 to G6, check!"

Referee:  "We must remind you mister Woodworker, your pawn is not a queen!"

Woodworker:  "Damn it!.. just where in the hell is that bitch anyways?!"
