1992 USCF Absolute Correspondence

ANew Year
Well, it is halftime at the Super Bowl, and here I am trying to finish getting this issue ready for the printer tomorrow. Oh, the sacrifices of being editor.. .. I'd like to begin this issue by offering a hearty "welcome" to all of those chessplayers reading ISCA's "Chess in Indiana" for the first time. For those "regular" IS~A members, I'm sure you will realize that there is more scholastic news and information in this issue than you've seen in the past. The reason is because for the next couple of issues, the majority of readers will be scholastic players. This issue is going to all participants in ISCA's State Scholastic Championships (held in Indianapolis on March 16 - see page 17 for details), and we are also doing a "mass mailing" to all USCF members in Indiana for our March 30th issue. It is our hope that we can keep the quality of the magazine high and maintain a broad appeal to readers of all ages and ratings. Of course, an increased circulation can only help Chess in our state. It makes our magazine more attractive to advertisers and a broader member-base makes us a healthier organization in general. Speaking of advertisers, I do hope that the readers will support those people or businesses or tournaments advertised in this magazine. If you have never been to the Boardroom in Broad Ripple, stop in and see them. They have a good selection of chess books (many of the used books there are quite a bargain - the moves are the same as if the book were brand new!) and the selection of sets and equipment is also a good one. If you haven't already ordered and read Eric Woro's Under the Black Sun, you might want to give it a try. I've read it, and, although not for children, can heartily recommend it to adults who have an interest in Chess or Vampire literature or both. Enough preaching, I know. Keep in mind, however, that revenue from advertising helps keep the magazine funded without having to always "pinch pennies. " The only other thing I have to say is "Please keep submitting games and material for the magazine." I'm sure by the end of my term as editor you'll be sick of me and my writing, so keep the games and news coming! As always, read and enjoy. Jay A. Carr Publication Schedule for Future Issues:

The Absolute Postal Chess Championship is billed as the DSCF's most prestigious postal chess tournament. Invitations are sent out to all players with ratings of 2200 or more, and the top thirteen who reply positively are paired. I was seeded eighth with a rating of 2340. The 1992 tournament didn't start until 1993 and didn't finish until September 1995. I played some of the most creative chess of my life and tied for first place. For my efforts I got $40.00 and a great looking plaque. Prestigious it may be; big bucks it is not! Following are three of my games from the event. By the way, there are no short draws in postal chess. I had three draws in my 12 games. All were more than 30 moves.

Most of the time opening novelties in postal chess get only a slight advantage. Here I use an unusual line which my opponent fails to counter logically, and he gets blown off the board.

The 1995 Indiana Masters Invitational Championship
by Jay A. Carr

The 1995 edition of ISCA's Masters Invitational was held on August 25th and 26th in the city of Bloomington. The event took place concurrently with a Under 2200 Open event, which was won by Josh Bousum of Kokomo and Mark Nostrant, visiting from' Ohio. Regrettably, most of those invited for the Masters Invitational were unavailable to play and we were left with a "very strong quad" including Peter Bereolos, a defending Co-Champion from last year's event, Jim Mills, three-time State Champion, Craig Stauffer, a former Ohioan who is now part of the extensive coaching program in Terre Haute, and "future master" Jason Doss, a recent high school graduate from Indianapolis. Round 1:
.:IT.

tJim Mills (2235)
Budapest

Craig Stauffer (2208) Defense

8. Qxd2 Qe7 9. Qd5, later playing ...b6, ...Bb7 and ... 0-0-0 in LogueCarr, 1989. 4. e3 Out of the books already. The universal tries here are 4. ND, 4. Bf4 and Alekhine's hyper-aggressive 4. e4!? Stauffer's move has the advantage of avoiding all "the cheap stuff" on fl, but at the cost of returning the gambit pawn uncontested. 4. ND has the disadvantage of leaving white forced to block in the QB after 4 ...Bc5 5, e3. Probably most popular is 4. Bf4, where after 4 ...Nc6 5. ND Bb4+ 6. Nbd2, White avoids having his pawn structure compromised. Alekhine's move, 4. e4 doesn't even try to hold the gambit pawn, instead returning it immediately with hopes of obtaining a strong central superiority. 4... NxeS S. Nh3 A totally new idea, as far as I know. Maybe eyeing a future conrol, on d5 (after Nf4) or maybe just intent on leaving theory behind, as Mills has a lot of experience on the Black side of this particular opening. S•..Bb4+ 6. Bd2 Bxd2+ 7. Qxd2 d6 8. Nf4 0-0 9. Be2 Nbd7 10. 0-0 NcS 11. Nc3 BfS

A fateful position for the Knight, as the follow up shows. 13. NhS Qh4?

Oh, but this leads to serious trouble. It is. difficult to believe Mills overlooked that White's reply attacks the f5-Bishop, thus negating the follow up of 14...Nxc4. I don't see how Black can now avoid losing a piece. It possible that Jim thought he could avoid the pawn fork after 14. Ng3 Bg6 15. f4 Ng4, but after 16. Bxg4 Qxg4 17, f5! Black is still outnumbered on the f5-square. 14. Ng3 Bg6 IS. f4 Nc6 In a losing position, Black tries to spin some tactical trickery to cut his losses, but that rarely works against master-strength opposition. 16. bS!

(annotations by Jay A. Caf.Fj

1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 es The Budapest Defense (some call it the Budapest Gambit - and for good reason) is a favorite of many attacking players.. Black hopes to establish a strong Knight on e5, and, in best case scenarios (often against unprepared opponents) Black can make hay with tactics focused on White's fl-square.) 3. dxeS Ng4 Also playable (but not for the faint of heart) is the Budapest's sister opening, 3...Ne4, the Fajarowicz Gambit. IM Otto Borik's book on the Budapests calls the "Faj" a "useful second-string defense". I've personally tested its waters only once, against an opponent I had previously beaten with 3... Ng4 and anticipating preparation on my adversary's part. I was lucky to get out alive after 3...Ne4 4. ND Bb4+ 5. Nbd2 Nc6 6. a3 Nxd2 7. Bxd2 Bxd2+

Both sides have completed the development of their minor pieces and Black appears to be doing fine. The twin Knights (on c5 and e5) are a Budapest trademark. Many players of this opening (myself included) have been burned by that overburdened d6pawn, however. Stauffer now starts a series of aggressive moves that induce Black to redeploy his pieces in a somewhat awkward way. 12. b4 Ne6

A valuable lesson for the beginning and intermediate player, who would immediately grab the pawn fork with 16. f5?, allowing Black to get two pawns for the piece and a faint glimmer of hope. Accuracy in chess pays big dividends. 16... NaS 17. NdS b6 18. rs: Now the time is right. 18... Nxc4? 19. Qb4 Things go from bad to worse as another piece is lost. 19... Nd4 20. Qxc4 Nxe2+ 21. Qxe2

Black plays on, probably more out of momentum than anything. White's two extra pieces however help set up some brutal game-ending tactics.

attacking possibilities after kingside castling, where the KR is already positioned on the f-file, ready to support the advance of the f-pawn.

Things are heating up on the kingside and Black's QB is called home to help in the defense.

and a quick start for Stauffer. Remember that great finish to the Bereolos-Doss game in last year's Masters Invitational? This one is just as memorable. ft Peter Bereolos (2355) 1Jason Doss (2106) Sicilian Defense
(annotations by JayA. Carr)

Jason intends to avoid an open f-file with the risky ...g5 and then meet a future Bh6 with ...Qf8, aiming to allow a Bishop exchange which leaves the Queen on g7.
17. Rf3 Bd718. Rafl

With White's Rooks doubled, the opening of the f-file is not going to be allowed by Doss.
18 ... g5 19. Qh5 Qf8 9... Nh6 10. Ne2 Ba6

1. e4 c5 2. NfJ Nc6 3. Nc3

A waiting move which indicates White may have different plans in mind, depending on what system Black wants to play.
3 ... g6 4. Bb5

Black's last may have been intended as a countermeasure against a potential d4 plan by White, since 10. Ne2 gets out of the way of the c-pawn, making c3 and d4 another option for White.
11. Nd2 Nf7 12. f4 0-0

Black's tortoise-like defense has held up so far, but, as is so often the case, lack of maneuvering room will take its toll.
20. h4 h6 21. Kf2!

Since Black has for now forbidden the use of the f-file, Bereolos prepares to pry open the h-file.
21. ••Nh8 22. bxg5 bxg5

System where White uses a "Lopez" development of his KB against the Sicilian have become increasingly popular in the past few years. NM Mike Wiseman and 1994 State Champion Jim Dean have been "spreading its gospel" around central Indiana. Cincinnati Master Richard Horvitz played it against me at last year's MOTCF tourney and Bereolos has also used it to good effect before.
4... Bg7 5. Bxc6

Although it seems that this is "castling into it," at the same time it's hard to suggest what else to try. With an open f-file looming, Doss decides to have his own Rook on that file to minimize the damage.
13. f5 Qe7 14. Ng3 Rad8 Bc8 15. Qg4

Recapturing with the f-pawn leaves Black to deal with the consequences of 23. f6 Bxf6 24. Ke2 and 25. Nf5, but is that any worse that what happens next?
23. RbI Qe724. Qh7+ Kf7

This exchange limits Black's control of the d4-square in this opening.
5... d.xc6 6. h3 e5

White has avoided the pin of his £3Knight and Black decides to "put the clamp" on d4 anyway, apparently setting up a maneuvering game. Black's e5-pawn, however, will come under attack with the later advance of White's f-pawn.
7. d3 f6 8. Be3 b6 9. 0-0

25. Bxg5!

When playing against the Sicilian, deciding which side to castle on is often a tough decision. While many' amateurs will automatically castle queenside and try to pawn-storm Black's king position, stronger players have a greater appreciation of the
Indiana's Jason Doss also tested his mettle in New York's Wasbington Square Park this fall.

I often play positions analogous to this in the Chekhover Variation of the Sicilian. Black's pressure on c4, c3, and e4 often becomes quite uncomfortable for White. The first player commonly performs a balancing act just holding things together, but if he is successful, the power of the Maroczy emerges in full bloom.

Round 3:

A truly masterful performance by Bereolos.
Round 2:

I was talking to a Hoosier expert at the State Championship this year who commented, after Mike Herron gained a tough draw against Jim Mills, that "It's tougher to draw Mills than beat him! " This was not meant to be a paradoxical statement. Jim has that total disdain for draws (a la Bobby Fischer) that many players profess to but few actually demonstrate when the chips are down. Here he doesn't give Jason a rest until 61 moves have been made. .ftJim Mills (2235) iJason Doss (2106) Reti Opening

Black sometimes plays this move (even if it sacrifices a pawn) to break the bind, but here it just doesn't work. Perhaps Bereolos had banked on his subsequent Rook penetration. Mills, however, masterfully squelches any counterplay and shepherds his queenside pawns forward to decide the issue.

I'm sure Mills wasn't happy about how things were shaping up - a symmetrical pawn formation and a dfile where the heavy stuff would be likely to be traded off, but the alternative recapture 11. Bxc3 could lead to an unpleasant hole at d3 after 11...e4.

"A Glimpse of the Mountaintop"
Every now and then the gods of chess allow a glimpse of the mountaintop. I enjoyed such a moment at the Indy Tornado, November 18, 1995. After a win in Round 1, I drew the very capable Hoosier expert Josh Bousan. For reasons which I find enjoyable and Josh surely finds annoying, I have . historically played well in our encounters. In our previous game, I drew the black side of a closed Sicilian (Chess in Indiana, Jul-Oct 1995, p. 49). Other games have been interesting although Josh had yielded me no points. But November 18, was to be my day. With white, I sought a solid, slightly unusual opening:

byBillCorbin

My idea is to firmly grasp e5 and attempt to mount a kingside attack.

7...c6
Although it is clearly premature to say black has serious problems, the passive setup allows white to continuing dreaming grandly. Of course, 7.... c6 suggests that black will try for freedom via e5. The next several moves revolve around our mutual interest in the e5 square.

8. Nbd2 Re8 9. Ne5 Nxe5 10. dxe5 Nd7 11. f4 f6 12. NfJ fxe5 13. Nxe5 Bf6 14. Bd3!

will control f8 and allow me to thoroughly dominate the f-file. 15. fxe5 Bg5 16. Rf3 Bd7? In our post-mortem, Josh felt this was the crucial error. He was justifiably anxious to develop the QB, put thereby allowed the full impact of Ba3. Had he played 16.... b6, he could simultaneously prepare a blockade at c5 and an opportunity for, the QB to develop on the queenside. White would have still mounted a strong king-side attack, but likely without uncontested control of the f-file. 17. Rh3 Bh6 I wasn't sure this move was forced by Rh3, but I had hoped for it. The black bishop loses contact with the a3-f8 diagonal.

18. Ba3! Kh8
Something like 18. ...Qg5 might have provided more play, but white now pretty well owns the board.

1. NfJ d5

2. b3 Nf6

I think this is the BentLarsen or Bent-something, but it transposes so quickly into variations of the English, Reti, Dutch, etc. that I really haven't tried to study up. When black responds with 1. ... dS, the game often plays like a Queens Indian with reversed colors.

19. Qg4 b6 20. Bd6 c5 21. Rfl Rg8 22. Rf7 Be8 23. Rxh6 Resigns

3. Bb2 e6
This turns out to be a crucial moment. My computer also plays 3.... e6 occasionally, probably to avoid doubled pawns if 4. Bxf6, but the blocked QB can be a problem for black. At this point, I vowed to play as aggressively as possible in hopes of exploiting black's slower development. 4. e3 Nbd7 5. Be2 Be7 6. 0-0 0-0 7. d4 I'm giving myself an exclam primarily because this move caused Josh to meditate for about 30 minutes. It creates various white square problems, raises the possibility of an h7 sac, and makes black wish his white squared bishop was a bit more involved.

14.... Nxe5
Now I spend several minutes in deliberation. If I recapture with the pawn, I have accomplished my lock on e5, but risk having my bishop become an overgrown pawn defending e5. Further the black bishop may become annoying on the cl-h6 diagonal, aiming at my backward e-pawn. If I capture with the bishop, I will either exchange off the black bishop or dominate the black squares if he runs and hides. But, with uncharacteristic foresight, I see another possibility. If I can achieve a timely Ba3, my bishop

One rook or the other mates at h7. Ah, 'twas a great moment. Ever the gentlemen-sportsman, Josh was complimentary of my effort (while, no doubt, vowing that no similar nonsense will recur). But, the mountaintop proved to have slippery slopes. Round 3 brought a hardfought loss to 1995 State Reserve Champ Solomon Kennedy and the slide continued in round 4 as expert Tom Harris blew open the queenside of my trusty English, winning in 45 moves. Oh, well, it was great fun while it lasted.

It's not often that fourthgraders play in big adult tournaments, it's even less common to see them . score huge upsets and finish well in the tournament. Ann and Andrew Chi both went to the Under 2200 tournament held in Bloomington on August 26th. The two had arrived with coach, Craig Stauffer. Andrew and I had played each other numerous times in both scholastic tournaments and at the Castle Chess Camp. I had watched Ann play successfully at many primary and elementary tournaments, but I had never seen her compete in any adult tournaments. To my surprise she knocked off 1600 Charly Zuppann in what was the quickest game of the first round. In this game there are not any annotations that need to be made. Ann developed quickly, attacked smoothly, and was able to end the game in 37 short moves. ft Ann Chi (1109) t Charles Zuppan (1600) Caro-Kann Defense

Qe6 Nd2+ 1/2:1/2 Ann had to face top seed David Roper in round two. Roper had taken a 112 point bye for round 1 and Ann was the lowest-rated player with 1 point. In round three I faced Ann's 1st victim, Zuppann, while she played Donovan Harshbarger. My game against Charly was only 24 moves and this was good because I to drive all the way back to Indianapolis. Unfortunately I had to wait for Jason Doss and Jim Mills to finish their game in the Master's Invitational because we were taking Jason home. I got to watch Ann's game against Harshbarger. Ann was down a few pawns in the start but found a combination that ended up winning the game.

In round 4 I was paired against Ann who already had gained 64 rating points. Everyone believed that she was going to get 32 more. We had a long game in a fairly boring opening. Eventually I forced it open and won after 60 move. In the last round I scored an upset against Bill Mammen. Previously, whenever I have played Mammen I would always hang pieces in even positions but not this time. I held on through a bumpy opening and then wound up Ahead. I finished with 3 112 points and won the Class C prize. The answers to last issue's problems were: 1) 1. Rd8+ Kxd8 2. Qxc6; 2) 1. Nxf6 Qxf6 2. Qf8++; 3) 1. Qxh8 Nxh8 2.

A note to scholastic players who may be reading "Chess in Indiana" for the first time: We try to publish the "official" USCF crosstables as soon as we receive them from the USCF. In official USCF crosstables, players who score the same number of points in a tournament are listed in order of rating, not in final order of tie-break finish. Sometimes, if there is, for example, a three-way tie for first, the player who won the trophy may not be the first player listed here. Also, a player's rating used at the time of the tournament may have changed by the time the tournament is rated by the USCF. Sometimes, a player's rating may appear too high for him to be playing in a certain section, so keep in mind that this was not the rating used for pairing purposes at the tournament. The "Pre" and "Post" ratings are the player's rating at the beginning and end of the tournament. A letter "p" following the Pre rating indicates that the rating is a "provisional" rating, and that the player has not yet played 20 USCF-rated games.

Chess In Indiana

Nov 1995·Feb 1996

r=========================================================~====~========~~ bl\ND Of' OPPORTUNITY
by Jay A . Carr

Chess in Indiana is beginning a new column this issue. "Land of Opportunity" is geared toward helping to instruct Indiana's scholastic players. As I have become more involved in scholastic chess in the past couple of years, I have begun to think of scholastic tournaments as a land of opportunity, where a little knowledge or experience can take a motivated player an awful long way. Any spectator of a chess game who is generally much higher-rated than the participants will know what I'm talking about. Sometimes the games of beginners or lower-rated players can be difficult to watch. "All he has to do is get his King to that square and it's over!" or "White can get out of trouble if he just trades queens!" This column will hopefully toss out some tidbits that will help scholastic players win some drawn games, or draw some lost games, and believe me, those half points here and there add up fast and keep your rating from suffering from the "yo-yo effect."

another weapon (a defensive one, of course) in the arsenal with which we start the game. Indeed, it is only when it is the last weapon we are left with that we ever use it. In this issue I want to show our scholastic readers some handy positions to know. Usually the first "good" stalemate we learn about is this simple position.

coached by someone who emphasized the fundamentals, a lesson about how to keep the "opposition" meant that many pawn-down endgames like the one above could be drawn with careful play. In my case, this knowledge made me somewhat careless with pawns in the opening as I assumed (wrongfully so) that being a pawn down was "not so bad." Do not make this 'same error; material is a precious thing and should not be carelessly tossed aside. There are many endgames where the weaker side (the one with less material) should lose against accurate play by the stronger side. But even here, your friend Stalemate is by your side to the end, waiting for a stumble by your opponent to enable you to snatch a draw from "the jaws of defeat." A relatively common simple ending is when one side has to defend with a King and Rook against a King and Queen - in almost all cases a lost cause. Look at the following, though.

YOUR FRIEND,

STALEMATE
For most, Stalemate is a difficult concept to understand when we are first learning the game. I can recall it seemed so unfair that Stalemate is considered a draw. "But you can't move anywhere! I should get the win! " I vaguely remember complaining to one of my early teachers. Most of us have the same early exposure to stalemate. Its appearance is usually accompanied by a groan or a sigh, since we were probably way ahead in material only to make a fatal move before realizing that our opponent would be unable to move. As we progress in ability and experience, however, those types of stalemates are (hopefully) completely eliminated and stalemate becomes just

(Black to move) The goal for the stronger side in these endings is simple: Force the defending King and Rook to separate, and then pick off the rook with a Queen fork. In almost all cases this can be accomplished, but if the stronger side is not careful, the defense can "rest" by finding a saving stalemate tactic. Here Black is saved because after 1...Rg7+ 2. Kh6 Rh7+!!, where the Rook is immune because 3. Kxh 7 is a stalemate. If white tries 2. Kf6, then 2...Rg6+!! is a stalemate after 3. Kxg6, where any other move allows 3...Rxe6 and "the defense rests" again. Of course, the White King can only move on the f,g, and h-files because if it ever tries to cross the e-file, then ....Re7 pins the white Queen. Recently, at the SCI Regional Individual tournament at McFarland Middle School, another common ending occurred where had the defender only known that stalemate was his friend, he could have saved himself half a point. This may not be the exact position that occurred but the same rules apply:

Queen a couple of moves ahead of Black, whose last move was .... c2. Again, players who have been instructed well in fundamentals may already know that the plan for the stronger side in positions like this is to, by a series of checks, force the defending side to move in front of the pawn. Each time the defending side does that, then the stronger side can move his King one square closer (The Queen cannot stop the pawn by herself, just like the Queen cannot checkmate an opposing King without her King's help). This method does not work in the case of a c-pawn (as in this case), an f-pawn, or an a- or h-pawn. The defense has stalemate in his corner once again! In this position, White tried 1. Qd7+ Kc12. Kb7 Kb13. Qb5+ Ka2 4. Qc4+ Kb7 5. Qb4+ Kal 6. Qc3+ Kbl 7. Qb3+ where now it seemed that Black is forced to move in front of the pawn again to avoid losing it, and with it his only hope for a draw. His only hope if it weren't for stalemate, however! You can guess Black's next move of 7...Kal!! where 8. Qxc2 is a stalemate draw. If White tries to move his King closer, then 8•.•cl=Q is also a drawn position. The reader is urged to play out this position on a chessboard to satisfy himself (or herself1) that the position is a draw. I want to conclude this article with an example from adult play last year. Two of Indiana's most active experts faced off in a tournament played in Southern Michigan. Ever resourceful Les Kistler, of South Bend, was able to "swindle" a draw out of a dead-lost position by emptying his defensive arsenal and finding ...our old friend, Stalemate.

Dan Moore (2067) vs. Les Kistler (2095) South Haven Mini-Swiss 1995 position after 64. g6. Black is down a Bishop and two pawns in the endgame. Usually a hopeless case, but in this game, Time Pressure was a factor, and a big enough one to allow a stalemate trap. The game continued. 64...R~7! 65. g7? (White could have avoided any "nonsense" with the simple 65. Rd7!) 65••.Rxe6+!! (a great try) 66. Kxe6?? Stalemate 1/2:1/2 "All I heard was the cry 'Stalemate!' " Danny Moore later wrote. In time pressure, he didn't see the trap. With 66. Kf5! he could have preserved his win as 66...Rf6+ (another attempt to introduce stalemate) can be met by 67. exf6! (instead of 67. Kxf6??). Well, I hope that I have at least encouraged readers to begin thinking differently about stalemate. I guarantee you that careful attention and study of just the few examples given here will translate into real points (I guess I should say 'halfpoints') on the wall charts! In closing, I'd like to offer up a problem. The first reader (under 18 years of age and with a rating under 1500) that sends me the correct solution will get a (only slightly) used copy of Irving Chernev's 200 Brilliant Endgames.

White to play and draw. White, of course, is moving "up" the board and Black is moving "down." (The pawn on h2 is about to Queen, for example.) Until next time, play hard, think hard, and don't forget your old friend, stalemate! ~

(White to move) This resulted from a common "off to the races" endgame where both sides were rushing to Queen a pawn. White had a big start, though and was able to

SADDLE PALS & SPLINTERS The B- Western Chess Connection
by Brad Pavey

A bit of non-chess but relevant "A fiery horse with the speed of light, a cloud of dust, and a hearty "Mate in four you fool!?" No, this probably never was an optional tag for "The Lone Ranger," but America's love affair with the Western had· plenty of room to allow an on-set devotion to chess. Through a little research and a lot of luck, I've discovered that this was equally true in the age of what are commonly called "B-Westerns," those generally black-and-white, low-budget gems starring the likes of Buck Jones, Gene Autry, Roy Rogers, Smiley Burnette and Al St. John, produced in rapidfire fashion by studios that included Grand National, PRC and Republic Pictures, as well as the spate of their early TV descendants. I stumbled onto a Hoosier connection or two a few years ago, and wound up convinced that you don't have to be a dummy to either be an actor or play chess, but it might help to bring one along.
geneaology; I surprised my oppone~t's father by asking if he was any relation

to Max Terhune. He is. For the uninitiated, Max Terhune was a firstclass ventriloquist who "stole" many scenes from Ray "Crash" Corrigan as Alibi, the comedy relief of the PRC Range Riders Westerns of the '40s. (Corrigan may have gotten the last laugh, though. Retiring to his ranch after the demise of the Bs in the '50s, he spent the rest of his life complaining to anyone who would listen that the industry had overlooked his talent and incidentally becoming a Gene Autry class millionare from site fees charged to studios to shoot exteriors and on location for film and .

Back to chess: Max Terhune played, but from my research to date, Edgar Bergen didn't. (though I'm not sure about Charlie McCarthy or Mortimer Snerd [Uh, Nope! I don't think so!!] Corrigan is iffy as to chess, Autry knows how to, at least in his more sober moments. (I've caught myself wondering if Autry and a member of the Board of Governors of the Marshall Chess Club, lyricist Johnny Marks, played any speed games while working on their most famous collaboration; "Rudolph the RedNosed Reindeer. It)

The best chess player from the B Western era? (c. 1927-54) Suprisingly enough, far and away the most comrnited chess addict was John Wayne, who was once challenged to a match by William Windom (co-star of the Burt Lancaster gem "To Kill a Mockingbird," star of the late '60s Thurberesque "My World and Welcome to It" TV series among hundreds of other roles, including currently "Dr. Seth Hazlet," on "Murder, She Wrote" ) In the truest spirit of the B Western, the Duke took up the challenge, and didn't even flinch as he lost every game 0-5.

Although later audiences may recall him best in "good guy" roles, starring in such series as "Movin' On," "B.J. & the Bear," and its successful spinoff, "The Misadventures of Sherriff Lobo," the late Oscarnominated ("Their Gallant Hours") used his rather craggy, Phil Grammesque features to good effect playing bad guys in movies and TV throughout most of his career. In one notable instance, though, those features were burried under pounds of appliance make-up when Akins turned in a fine performance as a gorilla general in "Beneath the Planet of the Apes."

Postal Chess in Indiana
by James Huston

This month I am going to focus on the last organization that I have any information on at this time. The organization is NOST or Knights of the Squared Table. They state that they are "The club with a friendly heart." NOST is basically a gaming club. While their main focus is on postal chess, they do delve into other games as well. One of the games is called Archimedes, which was first explained in the July 1988 of "Games" magazine. Since they do not go into any details of the game, I will leave it up to you to get in contact with NOST for an explanation of the game. They also have chess variants such as "Racing Kings" where you try to be the first person to get your King to the eighth rank without giving check or exposing yourself to check. Another game is Tori Shogi, which is less intense than Shogi. Then there is the game called Grand PAB. It is a secret code game. Each player chooses a code of four symbols, each composed of a letter from A to E and a.number from 1-5. Also, they have Cylindrical Chess. The board is bent into a cylinder, left and right edges adjacent, so moves like Bh4-a5 are possible. You may wish to play Progressive Chess. It is like Scottish Chess (White makes 1 move, Black 2 moves, White 3, etc.), except that no piece may move twice in a turn until all mobile pieces have moved. Or you may wich to play games like "Go" and "Amazons". Amazons is played on a lOx 10 board. White starts the game. The key to winning the game is to be the last person to make a full move. Lastly, the have Secret Word Ladders for those of you who do not wish to play any of the othre games. All the games listed above are played in tournament formats just like chess. If you are interested in learning more about NOST or would like to join them, feel free to write to Ronleigh

Dale, Nostmaster, 700 S. Shafter Ave 101; Shafter, CA 93263-2643. Ypu may sign up for one year at $17.00 or 5 years for $68.00. A liefetime membership is $170.00. The price for Seniors (65+), Juniors (17-), handicapped, or prisoner is $13.00 for one year and $52.00 for 5 years. I have one more game each from Charles Luers and Kurt Bridgham that I think you might like. The following game is from Charles, playing the black side of a Classical French Defense:

Dunlop, Professor of English, University of Washington

Martin Fairchild, a young chess prodigy who begins to come into his own in 1992, does not suspect that his problems are linked to those of Bobby Fischer. When he goes to work as a copy editor for Caissa Times, an international chess magazine published in La Jolla, California, he does not know that his own schizophrenia, as well as his complicated array of metaphysical questions, are linked to Bobby Fischer, who returned to active play in 1992 after a 20-year absence. R.D. Laing, renowned psychologist, once described the primary fear of schizophrenics as "fear of implosion," or invasion and possession by others. There is a curse on the men of the Fairchild family, and the curse is paranoid schizophrenia. Martin is unaware of this, just as he is unaware of the fact that his personality is gradually being invaded and overtaken. Enter the vampire Monique.

ERIC WORO was Managing Editor of The Arts Journal (Asheville, NC) from 1982-1986, during which time he published numerous articles on a variety of subjects, including chess, literature, and the arts. He obtained a B.A. with Distinction in Literature from UNC-Asheville in 1988 and won the prestigious Bryan Award for Best Senior Thesis. He then moved to Seattle on a recruitment fellowship to the University of Washington, earned his M.A. in English in 1989 and did three more years of postgraduate study. Following his informal interest in chess, he went to work as Copy Editor for Inside Chess magazine in 1992, and soon became Books Editor for International Chess Enterprises, Inc., where he worked until late 1994.

Black is once again a pawn up. His King is in the center, but so surrounded by his whole army (pawns and four pieces), that I didn't see how I could get at him. So I swung the Queen over to the other side of the board.

THE WORM TURNS
Euripides Avgoustoglou, a graduate student in Physics, is one of . half a dozen first-rate chessplayers brought into my orbit by the University of Notre Dame (padraig O'Briain of Dublin, Ireland, Paul Zelinski of Pennsylvania, Harald Herndl of Vienna are some others). Euripides, a direct descendant of the great playwright (Medea, The Bacchae, The Trojan Women, etc.), has been my chess companion and best friend for five years. We have played more match games than Labourdonnais and MacDonnell, Kasparov and Karpov, almost one hundred and fifty in all. Ideal chess for fun: no clocks, no long travel' to other cities, no entry fees, no hotel bills, no cash prizes - just friendly games - pure chess for the fun of it. Euripides has won every one of our ten-game matches, often by lopsided scores of seven or eight games to one or two, with a few draws. But in the game below, a rousing Poisoned Pawn where we kept punching away at each other for two dozen moves, I finally landed a haymaker at move 33. One of the best moves I ever made in my life, winning either the King or Queen. Man Bites Dog, the Worm Turns - hurrah!

6. Bg5 e6 7. f4 Qb6!?
Remarkable! Black neglects his development and goes after the proverbial poisoned pawn at b2. The great Paul Keres gambitted the pawn some thirty years ago, and won, but the opening theoreticians have been arguing about the variation ever since. I turned sixty-eight in 1995, and I shall not live to see the end of the argument.

28. Qa7+ Kd8 29. Qxa6 Rxc2
Both sides keep slugging away. It's a great joy to play without clocks, so that delicious positions like this aren't spoiled by the Old Devil, Time Pressure, who wrecks so many games. We don't play like Louis Paulsen, who drove Paul Morphy crazy by taking hours over some moves.

30. Nd4 Qc8 31. Qa5+ Qc7 32. Qxb5
Cunningly setting a terrific trap! I did my best to look like a Boiled Sheep's Head, pretending I was just snaffiing up a loose pawn. Now, if only Euripides would grab my loose pawn in return. ... ! He didn't think very long, but swallowed the fatal bait. ..

8. Qd2!? Qxb2!? 9. RbI
Spassky played 9. Nb3 - threatening to win the Queen with a3 and Ra2 - in one of his 1972 games against Bobby Fischer, and won. I stick to Keres' original line.

9.•.Qa3 10. Bxf6
10. e5 is an alternative line of attack.

10...gxf6 11. Be2 Nc6
An alternative for Black is 11 f5 keeping White's Bishop from' 'th; promising post at h5, and threatening to get his own KB out at h6.

32•.• Rxa2??
I earnestly studied the position for a few minutes, enjoying myself. Euripides still didn't know what was about to hit him.

12. Nb3?
Wasting a tempo a decentralizing my Knight. I wanted to keep the black Queen from escaping at c5.

33. Ne6+!!
A haymaker. The Queen, and the seemingly out-of-it white Bishop at h5 focus on the fatal square e8, and the Knight blasts open the Black fortress. Startled and chagrinned, Euripides had to ..

12••• d7 13. Bh5 Be7 14. 0-0 Rd8 B
Perhaps he should have gotten his King out of the center with 14... 0-0-0, but Black is mobilizing his army, and he is still a pawn ahead.

33...Resigns 1:0

15. f5 Qb4 16. fxe6 Bxe6
Black has an ugly backward pawn at d6, and doubled pawns over on the kingside, but how can I break in? 17. Rf3 Ne5 18. Rg3 b5 19. Qh6 Qc4 White certainly has compensation for the pawn, but is it enough?

"The Return of Mike Herron"
by Sam Shapiro

When Adolf Andersson, winner of the Immortal Game, and the Evergreen Game, and of the first International Tournament at London, 1851, lost a match to Paul Morphy (paris, 1858, 7-2 with two draws) he claimed that his defeat was due to lack of practice. Andersson was a mathematics teacher at Breslau (today known as Wroclaw) and played chess only during his vacations. "One cannot keep one's chess ability in a pocket, like a watch, and bring it out from time to time," he explained. When Mike Herron returned to tournament chess; after a four-year lay-off, during his college years, the same excuse was available to him. In his second tournament, he encountered Master Jim Mills, two hundred rating points above him; and Mike's own expert rating, four years old, was dubious. Sure enough, Mike made a mistake in the opening, and after a dozen moves he was in serious trouble. But then ...well, you can see for yourself. ftMike Herron (2017) tJim Mills (2208) QP Opening (Indianapolis Chess Center Innaugural Tornado; April 23, 1994) 1.

Bill Mammen submitted the two following games of his, where he plays both sides of the Morra Gambit. Bill writes: "The short game is "amusing" because White either loses the queen or gets mated in just 11 moves - after sacrificing a pawn for a big lead in development too! The most interesting thing about the second game is that toward the end all four of Black's pieces occupy all four corners of the board! I've never seen that before ... my opponent played like an expert for the first 33 moves before making two big mistakes near the end - allowing me to win a game I should have lost." ft Adam Briner (1346) i Bill Mammen (1799) Sicilian Defense (Terre Haute Gr.

Here are three games submitted by Randy Pals from the recent Chesterton December Swiss: "The December tournament started with an upset on Board 1 in Section 1. Not long ago, Greg Steele defeated 2S8S-rated Boris Men in a tournament game (with the Black pieces!), but here he gets upended by 1614-rated Mike Kloeckner. The fickleness of Caissa ....

Randy also writes, regarding the 1996

Chesterton tournament series: "In 1996, our open tournaments will be trying a new prize fund distribution of $310.00 based on 30 entrants. There will be a 1st prize of $100.00 and a 2nd prize of $50.00. Instead of class prizes, there will be "Under X" prizes for X=2000, 1800, 1600, 1400, and 1200. This distribution is much more fair to lower-rated players who score well, because they are eligible for all prizes at their level and above. Among those who filled out one of our surveys, the 4 round format was most popular, followed by the 5 and 3 round formats in that order. Currently, it is our intention to offer eight 4 round tournaments, and two each of the 5 and 3 round tournaments. " The next two Chesterton events are scheduled for February 24, and March 23. For more information, contact Randy Pals @ (219) 926-2266. Note: The winners in December tournament (we will print the USCF crosstable next issue) were: Section I Ist- Randy Pals, 2nd-6th, Harold Henderson, Dennis Ruhl, Michael Kloeckner, James Bearss, and Harry Berndt; Section II: 1st- Jeff Venable, 2nd - Floyd Smith. -editor

There were 208 USCF-rated chess events held in Indiana in 1994, an increase of 51 over the previous year. The number is one more than the 1991 level. The total of playerentires was 6,739, a 14% increase over 1993, and the number of rated games was 14,135, an increase of 30%, Some of the increase was due to the number of Quick Chess events now being rated, 27 individuals served as Chief Tournament Directors, one more than in 1993. 9 were new to Indiana events this time, and 8 who had directed in 1993 did not in 1994. This annual compilation is derived from USCF tournament crosstables. The first list ranks TD's by the speed (in number of days) of receipt of their Rating Reports -- the difference between the END DATE of the event and the DATE RECEIVED by USCF, These can be affected by mail delivery times or errors at USCF. Last time (Q, May 1994) we stated that many directors now submit their reports electronically. This was not quite true. Reports sent on diskette still have to be sent by mail with payment for the Rating Fee, so I do not know why some directors got listed with only one day delivery time. The second table ranks TD's by total number of players played under their direction and total games played, This report, which would normally have been published in the Spring of 1995, was delayed by some mislaid crosstables which were found after my recent move. The 1995 statistics will be out in a few months,

The 1995 "Game of the Year" Awards
Many have sent in nominations for the Game of the Year awards mentioned in the last issue of Chess In Indiana. But we want more!! Especially from players rated below 1800, who seem to be suffering from a "terminal case of modesty." Our intention at this point is to print about half a dozen "finalists" in both the Open and Reserve category in the next issue. By notice here, the deadline for receiving nominations is March 15, 1996. After the next issue, the finalists will be submitted to an expert (and master!) panel of judges who will rate the games in order. The winning entries will be "deeply annotated" in the May 30th issue, and we're hoping to award some kind of plaque including the moves to the game (and maybe a critical position) for each of the two winners.

(Indiana, Ohio, Michigan, and Kentucky). The traditional date for this event is mid to late October, and, by notice here, ISCA is soliciting bids for this tournament. Traditionally, it has been a very strong event the past couple of decades, with many masters competing from the four states involved. Bids should be submitted to the ISCA secretary, Tom Harris (Address on inside cover of the magazine)

Thanks for Submitting Material!!
I would like to thank all those who submitted games and or news for this issue. For this issue (and the last issue, I believe) there was NO material submitted that was not published, so don't be shy. Send in those games and (PLEASE!) photographs for the magazine. Thanks again. -editor

GM Games Still Wanted; Also Computer Games/Stories
We mentioned in the last issue that we're working on a feature about games by Indiana Players against Grandmasters, although the submissions for this has been "lukewarm" we have about 1015 games so far but would like many more. Also, another future feature will be concerning players experiences with chessplaying computers, either "commercially availabe" models or those you might have benn paired against in a tournament. Send 'em in! !!
