My Mistake(s) ...
A couple of years back, when I was assisting then editor John Crane with the magazine, the subject came up of printing an "errata" section each issue correcting previous issue's mistakes. We jokingly considered a blanket statement such as "Corrections from last issue: Too nU!llerousto mention." Well, sometimes that's how I've felt, and, sadly, a lot of the feedback I receive on the magazine is simply a catalog of mistakes. After receiving an itemized, typo-by-typo critique of this year's State Championship Issue from another former editor (It was admittedly the most error-ridden issue of my tenure), I enlisted some more proofreading help for the last issue and think made a lot of progress. A few mistakes still slipped through (as always they were immediately apparent upon viewing the printed copy... ). In the last issue, we erroneously stated (page 17) that Niko Chatziioakimidis "defeated Mike Wiseman in an Indianapolis tornado." Actually, Mike did play Niko, but in the May 31st Riverpointe Open and defeated him (see game score below). In fairness to Drew Hollinberger, in whose article this appeared, our scholastic editor had in fact e-mailed me to correct this, but somehow our final copy still included the mistake. We also omitted two games from page 29, where we unintentionally teased the readers with comments like: "The result was this game:" only to immediately go on to the next paragraph. The Kistler-Cole & Henderson-Krachinski games are also listed below. We also printed a version of the Indiana 500 without the benefit of going through Rick Roberts' "filtering process" and inadvertently included a couple of deceased players, which we generally try to remove from the list.

Indiana State Chess Association Patron Memberships:
Gold Card Memberships: Kurt Bridgham Joe Alford Indianapolis Scholastic Chess Conference (in memory of Brad Pavey) Bill Corbin Jay A. Carr Bronze Card Memberships: Bob Lambrecht Joe Spangler Kenneth Sims John R. Crane Remember that there are other ways to help support chess in Indiana that do not require a financial contribution. You may also start a club, help sponsor or coach a scholastic club (the legions of scholastic players in Indiana outnumber ISCA members at least six to onel), or hold a tournament in your town.

Other Issues:
I also ran into Jason Doss on line the other day, and he notified me that he is still an "Indiana Citizen" as he will only have a Texas mailing address during the school year. We'll re-add him to the next Indiana 500. Darn, now we (almost) all drop down another place on the list again! ©

Let's Get Our Scheduling Act Together?!
In a "small" Chess State like ours, it seems there is little need for our tournaments that conflict and compete with each other. Now I'm not talking about Chesterton and Evansville holding tourneys the same day - they don't draw from the same player

base, but it's "crazy" to have two tournaments the same day in the same city (unless one is a scholastic event). The new tournament in Indy is the Riverpointe series, which features a fast time control which many enjoy. Sadly, there've been several months where this tournament was held the same day as the "established" Indy Chess Center Tornado, hurting attendance at. both. Organizers, please check out the tournament schedule at Joe Riegsecker's website

I was also flabbergasted that our State Championship was scheduled the same weekend as the big money King's Island Open event, which many Indiana players also attend regularly. Let's make sure we do everything possible to avoid such conflicts as these. Enough preaching © See y'all at the State Championship. Send in those games and pictures!

1997 Castle Grand Prix
This year's Castle Terre Haute Grand Prix continued its tradition of being a "cosmopolitan" event, with many States being represented in addition to Indiana. 1994 State Champion Jim Dean continued his recent string of strong outings by finishing clear first with 4 Y2 out of 5, yielding only an "upset draw" in round one to buddy, Nathaniel Criss. Second place was Jim's 1996 USAT Championship teammate (and honorary Hoosier) John Langreck of Dayton. Jim and John shared a few of their games with me, which are included below: ftJim Dean (2291) vs . .t Eugene Zelensky (2362) French Defense C17/ 4

Goshen's Young King Cole Making His Mark
By Dan Shenk
Goshen, Ind.

Under at the SCI team finals at Terre Haute in the spring of'95. By the time John hit sixth grade at Goshen Middle School, it became apparent that he was "for real." He began knocking off some of the strongest players in the club and soon parlayed those successes into a string of victories in local and area tournaments. With his dad, John began attending regular Tuesday evening sessions of the Elkhart County Chess Club in Elkhart. This past January he was elected vice president of the club. John's first chess rating of 1014 in October of '95 had soared to an estimated 1650 by midMay of '97 -- and there's no end in sight. In recent months, John has regularly been defeating or drawing "A" and "B" players. Downing Expert Kistler (rated 2050 at the time) in 53 moves at Joe Riegsecker's Mellifluous Melodeon Open in May is John's highest-rated "scalp" to date. John seems remarkably unfazed by his meteoric rise. After all, his sights are set much higher. John plans to be a Master by the time he's through high school. At the end of his college career, John intends to have "some kind of FIDE rating: FM or 1M, if not GM," he said. How has he done it? For starters, it's his aversion to losing. This intense young man, who has been known for his Fischer-like style of moving his pieces with noisy authority, said, "I hate losing. I just hate the idea that someone may be a bit better than me at something. It's hard to like a guy who's trying to beat you into submission."

If they made a highlight film of John Cole's past year in chess, it would be hard to pick out the best stuff. Would it be the (then) 12-year-old's victory May 10 against Expert Les Kistler in Middlebury? Would it be winning the under-13 age division in the U.S Junior Open in Bloomington, Ill., in mid-June by scoring five wins and a draw? Would it be crossing the 2000 threshold in the Internet Chess Club and beating a player rated 2400 in blitz on the Internet? Would it be taking home the state title in Eighth Grade & Under in the ISCA scholastic state tourney in Indianapolis in April? Would it be his five-tournament stretch early this year without a loss? (He had 24 wins and one draw in 25 games.) John Cole turned 13 on July 17. A year younger than most of his classmates at Goshen Middle School, he's an eighth-grader who's looking forward to leading his GMS team in the Eighth Grade & Under division in SCI team events early next year. The son of Scott and Amy Cole, John has been playing chess since he was 7 when his dad taught him the moves while the family lived in Ligonier. As a fourth-grader at Waterford Elementary School in Goshen, John spent part of a year under the tutelage of Senior Master Emory Tate Jr., then the coach at Waterford. John also has taken some private lessons from Tate. John's coach at Waterford and Goshen Middle School the past three years has been Dan Shenk, a chess activist and writer in Elkhart County since 1986. As a fifth-grader, John was on a strong Waterford team that placed third in the state in Sixth Grade &

Another factor in John's success is his father. John's dad has been very helpful, encouraging him and working through chess books with him. A year or so ago Scott Cole was rated 1105 and John Cole was rated 1104. Scott said he enjoyed having

bragging rights in the Cole household while they lasted. Scott and Amy have taken John (sometimes In-year-old sister Sarah goes along,but she seldom plays) to about three dozen tournaments the past couple of years, including the Super Nationals in Tennessee in April (where John scored 5-2) and the Chicago Open at the end of May (where he had a 5-1-1 record). In . June, John attended Castle Chess Camp in Terre Haute and topped off his week with second place in the Under-1800 Grand Prix tourney with four wins and a draw. To prepare for tournaments, Scott and John have gone through Lev Alburt's Comprehensive Chess Course, Jeremy Silman's Reassess Your Chess and Aron Nirnzovich's My System. John credits the Nirnzovich book with teaching him "a lot of good principles -- especially blockading -- as in the Advance Variation of the French Defense."

Father and son have also studied Bruce Pandolfini's endgame course. With a grin, John said, "My dad always threatens me that if I lose an easy endgame I'll have to go back over the appropriate Pandolfini endgame (lesson). It's like a sword of Damocles hanging over my head -- brutal, yet effective. " The computer has also been a great teaching tool for John. He guesses he has played 500 games on the Internet. In addition, he plays Chessmaster 3000 and uses Chess Base, a database of games. "I don't have the whole MCO memorized like Kasparov," said John. This articulate young man with a good sense of humor has worked on the newspaper staff at Goshen Middle School. He hopes to use those verbal skills some day in a career as a district attorney. "I like to debate and argue with people," he said. At this point he sees chess only as his main hobby throughout life. "I probably won't make a career out of it," he says, sensibly. "You have to be really good and pretty much put your whole life into chess to make a living at it." John considers the royal game "a good life metaphor," adding: "Chess has taught me patience. It has also taught me to weigh things carefully -- not to rush in. It's taught me how to think." This prodigy-in-the-making also considers chess "very stimulating and a difficult challenge," noting that "for patzers like me, it's always a challenge. " . As many players throughout the Midwest have learned in recent months, defeating Young King Cole in a game of chess is also a challenge.

"Juggernaut John" Cole stuns field at Riverpointe Action Open
by Jay A Carr

Since the wnting of the above article by Dan Shenk, young John Cole has added some new achievements to his resume, the most remarkable of which was his performance at the Riverpointe Action Open on August 2nd. John Cole scored 5-0 against what (at least we thought) was a very tough schedule in this G/30 event. Surviving an opening "scare" in round one against Jim Mills, he went on to defeat the master and former state champion (see games below). For this victory he earned the right to face top-seeded Mike Wiseman (another master, and another former state champion) in round 2. The result? Another shocking upset victory for John. (I remember when I beat my first master in a rated game.

Aug-Oct 1997

Chess In Indiana

Page 7

It was really exciting, and, several months later, I finally defeated my

second master. John only had to wait about an hour ... ) After this, we were wondering who would stop him, as he had just defeated the two highest rated players in the event and was no doubt gaining confidence rapidly. The other two higher-rated players in the event were myself and Paul Cooper, both former 2000+ players who (at least in my case!) have probably already seen their best days at the board. The task fell to me in round three, and, feeling a bit like Leonidas with his 300 Spartans, I began the game thinking, "Okay, time to uphold the honor of the older generation ... " Alas, John would have none of it and beat me almost routinely. As Les Kistler would say, I was a "Pillow of Strength!" Paul Cooper carried "our hopes" with him into round four and seemed to have a nice positional edge for most of the game but, like Mills & Wiseman failed to adjust to the onset of time pressure as well as his young opponent. Result: Cole was now 4-0. Oddly enough, the opponent who came closest (not counting Mills' position before time pressure in round 1) to beating John was the lowestrated opponent he faced - Don Thomas. Although John held the advantage throughout the game, both players overlooked a problem-like 1 move win late in the game (see picture). John had blockaded Den's passed pawn on g7 by placing his King at g8. With the pawn supported by a Rook on the g-file, all Don had to do to force promotion (as Mills pointed out instantly after the conclusion of the game) was to sacrifice his Bishop on h7, which John would be forced to take with his King, allowing g8=Q. Having reported all this, I almost feel the need to remind the readers that the pace of G/30 is, by definition, very frenetic and "anything can happen." This may be offered as an explanation of why Mills failed to "finish him off" in round 1 and why Thomas missed a win in the final

round. This certainly does not take anything away from John's achievement, however, as he naturally began each game with the same amount of time as his opponents. Indeed, it was my impression that throughout the day John kept his cool the best late in the games, when his more experienced foes were more prone to blunder than he. Here are some of John's games from this event: ftJim Mills (2245) tJohn Cole (1615) King's Indian Defense

In my experience, players often overlook (especially in time pressure) a piece on an unusual square, or "assume" just because the opponent has a piece on a specific square, that it is a specific piece as well. lin this case, I'd be wondering how that "pawn" (Heck, Bishops look like oversized pawns anyway!) on b5 could help support

Games from the May Indy Chess Center Tornado
A whole herd of very strong players headed the wall charts at the Indy Chess Center's May Tornado. This might have been the strongest "tornado" event ever held in Indianapolis. A good indication of the strenght of the tournament is the scores of some of Indiana's best players: Gogel 2 Yz, Wiseman 3, Herron 3. Niko Chatzrroakimidis and Nelson Castaneda both finished with 4-0 to tie for first place. Also of note was that Phil Meyers (who gained a whopping 55 rating points in the event) became the first "mortal" to defeat Mike Herron in several years with a huge upset victory in round 3.

Brilliant! 50. Be4 de 5l. Ke4 Ke6 and White's King cannot stop the g-pawn and also protect his queenside. Of course he can never take the h-pawn because the g-pawn queens. That's why he keeps the bishops on the board. He should have kept the rooks on also.
SO.Bfl Ke7 SI. Be2

White can resign. on 5l. Ke5 or 5l. Kg5 the advance of the g-pawn wins the white Bishop. Then Balck's Bishop is available to stop the h-pawn or to make tempi if White goes to the queenside.

My "New" Class B Opening!
by Dan Watson

Last fall while perusing my MCO, I came across the Maroczy Bind variation of the Accelerated Dragon Sicilian: 1. e4 cS 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. d4 cxd4 4. Nxd4 g6 S. c4.

White's position in the diagram is to be preferred for many reasons. First, his c- and e-pawns inhibit Black from playing dS.2 Second, pawn breaks on bS and fS are difficult: bS is usually covered three times by White (B+N+P), and fS can create dangerous kingside weaknesses for Black. Third, White enjoys a marked space advantage. This allows him to develop his minor pieces naturally, followed by rooks on the c- & d-, d- & e-, or e- & f-files. All that remains is to pry open the center with a pawn lever, and then start blastin' away! For good reason then, Black usually discourages White from showing his Maroczy muscles in the above set-up. A nifty way to achieve this is an early ... Nf6, provoking White into blocking his own c-pawn, e.g. 1. e4 cS 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. d4 cxd4 4. Nxd4 Nf6 S. Nc3 g6. The Maroczy Bind created such an impression on me, that I started playing weird moves as white to try to "throw" my opponents into accepting it: 1. e4 cS·2. Nf3 Nc6 3. d4 cxd4 4. Nxd4 Nf6 followed by f3? or Qd3? Unfortunately, the mother of
1 I've followed the time honored tradition of stealing someone else's idea. 2 ... d5 is considered by many to be the equalizing move of the Sicilian. If that pawn break cannot be made, Black may be subject to a cramped and defensive game.

invention' had provided me with not much more than a lot of bad positions and unpromising middlegames. So, I remained at an impasse until my good friend Terry Harris gave me a little yellow book that David Levy" had written on the Sicilian. A chapter on the Maroczy Bind showed the first time it was played, with Mr. Maroczy playing the black pieces! Evidently, he was impressed enough with it that he adopted it as his own, and his name has been with it ever since.5 What was more important, I rediscovered the rusted Sword of Damocles that lay buried in that first game score: the move order 1. e4 cS 2. c4! I know what you must be thinking: "Dan, can a person really stick pawns on e4 and c4 like that, and not get punished?" Well, a young upstart at the 1911 Carlsbad International Tournament tossed his pawns out to the wind in such a manner and it didn't seem to affect his chess career. 6

The text move weakens the black squares and White takes advantage of it in an energetic manner.
S. d4 exd4 6. Nxd4 Bg7 7. NdbS!

This demonstrates the weakness of Black's fourth move. Now, in order to protect his d6, he must lose a tempo with his Bishop.
7... BeS 8. f4

In order to reply to S...BbS by 9. cS, etc., thus permanently blocking the position.
8... a6

Black attempts to bring about complications which would turn to his advantage upon the slightest mistake on White's part.
9. fxeS axbS 10. Bf4 bxe4 11. Bxe4

White has now a splendid development and threatens 12. NbS (after possibly I1...Qb6) or 12. 0-0 with an attack on the f-file.
11... RaS

This combination, both elegant and sound, gives White a winning attack. The temporary sacrifice of two minor pieces for a Rook will allow the Queen to enter decisively into the game. The point is the 17th move, RbI.

Now the Knight must be taken.

Finally, I would like to dedicate this article to my first born, who is due in early Spring. Most expecting "chess dads" have probably gone through 'the same feelings that I'm going through now: wanting their kid to be the next Josh Waitzkin. Ah, but to live vicariously! As much as it pains me, I think I can accept it if my he or she never really takes to playing chess.'

Adventures in Chess
"Threescore Years and Ten"
by Sam Shapiro

it Vernon Cloud (1825) :t Sam Shapiro (1800)

Irregular French COO/4

I celebrated my seventieth birthday on August 23, 1997. I was born the year Alexander Alekhine won an upset victory over Jose Raul Capablanca in Buenos Aries, and I have lived to see a computer undreamed of back then - win a match from a human World Champion. I can remember attending lectures and playing simultaneous games against world-class players from pre-World War II days: Capablanca, Emmanuel Lasker, Sammy Reshevsky, Reuben Fine, and the recently deceased Miguel Najdorf. As my years mount up, my playing skill, and my rating, are declining. At the beginning of 1996, my artificial floor of 1900 was 400 points better than that of my current chess pal, Vernon Cloud. But Vernon won a tournament in Middlebury, beating me, and Expert Les Kistler. Then he went to Chicago, won a Class B tournament 5-0 (and a thousand dollars), and climbed into Class A. . At the same time, my rating floor was removed, and I promplty plummeted to 1800. Vernon now outrates me by a handful of points, and he won our last match, 2 'is to 1 'is. It's been more than two years since I won any tournament. But since I have had to give up most of my other sports - bicycle riding, long walks, tennis, downhill and cross country skiing - chess is more precious to me than ever. I still win a few games, and the rarer my victories are, the more I cherish them. After all, it is the scarcity of diamonds that makes them so much more valuable than anthracite coal, although both are made of the same element, Carbon. Here's a victory over Vernon, in game 3 of our second match, July 15th 1997.

1. e4 e6 Just to be different; I usually play 1...e5 or 1...c5. Vernon also chooses an unusual line. 2. NO d5 3. e5 c5 4. b4!? An odd gambit, resembling the Sicilian Wing Gambit, or the Benko. In all these cases, a wing pawn is sacrificed to get preponderance in the center. 4... cxb4 5. a3 bxa3 6. d4 Ne7 7. Bd3 Ng6? I'm not playing the most accurate defensive moves. The Knight is exposed to a thrust of the h-pawn, which Vern promptly takes advantage of. 8. h4! Be7? I'm in too much of a hurry to castle into the corning storm. 9. Ng5 Nc6 I could take a second pawn, but I was afraid of the open h-file. 10. c3 Bd7 Note that Black lacks the usual counterattack on d4 since he has no cpawn. Perhaps I should have tried ...Nxh4!? 11. QO!

I've got three pawns for my piece, and, more important still, the initiative. The Big Mo, Momentum, is on Black's side. 15. NO a6 16. Bxa3 0-0 My King is safe at last! 17. Ng5!? f5 I don't want to risk opening the h-file, and now I'm getting my central pawn mass in motion. 18. NO Bb5 19. Qe3 Rf6 20. Nd4 Bd7 21. Rh3 Rg6 22. Bxe7 Qxe7 23. Nxf5 Qf6 24. Ng3 e5 25. Rh2 A pitiful spot for this rook, which was so powerful ten moves before. It will die on this square. 25 •.. d4 26. Qd3 Bb5 27. c4 Bc6 28. Nd2 At last! White mobilizes his queenside piece, but it's too late. 28 ... Rg4 29. Nde4 Qf4 30. Nd2 Rf8 Curious! White has an extra piece, but Black's army, aided by the strong center pawns, has all the play. 31. Qf1 Pitiful! 31 ... Rxg3 32. fxg3 Qxg3+ 33. Ke2 Qxh2 34. Qh1 Qxg2+ 35. Qxg2 Bxg2 And White resigned a few moves later 0-1 "Chess, like art, like music, has the power to make men happy." (Following is a "bonus" Adventure in Chess. Shortly after his return from the Emerald Isle (Sam, in all your pub-crawling, did you remember to drink that Guinness for me?) he fired off yet another adventure ... - editor)

"Only Another Draw!?"
by Sam Shapiro

Ouch! Vernon is threatening mate, and I don't want to castle because of 12. Nxh7! Gritting my teeth, I decided to sacrifice a piece for two pawns and the chance to exchange White's menacing KE. 11... Ngxe5!? 12. dxe5 Nxe5 13. Qg3 Nxd3+ 14. Qxd3 h6

When I play over games from magazines or tournament books, I notice that I often skip over the draws. Sometimes this is only sensible - a Grandmaster Draw where the players are just going through the motions, is not of any interest to anybody. As a football coach once remarked, "tying a game is like kissing your sister."

But sometimes a split point, a "fighting draw," is just as interesting - or more interesting! than a decisive result. In my first round game in the Dublin City Championship, played in the old Wynn Hotel off 0' Connell Street on September 19, 1997, my opponent and I slugged away at each other until we were arm weary, and he had nothing left but a Bishop (of the wrong color) and a rook pawn. We had both made mistakes and' overlooked winning movees, but what Emmanuel Lasker called "the equalizing injustice of chess" made the game come out even.

up in knots.

14. Radl h6 15. Bh4 b5 16. Bb3 Ne5!?
Getting desperate, I rely on the flimsy combination 17. Nxe5? Bg4, winning the exchange. But it's poor policy to rely on your opponent's mistakes; black simply gets rid of the QB.

17. NxeS RxeSlS. d6! ReS
Now White has a simple win with 19. Nxe5!, threatening both Bx:f7+ and the deadly fork on d7! But it is Mr. McDermott's turn to make a mistake, and let me breathe some more.

for a Knight to dominate a Bishop in this way. 39. BfJ Nxf4 40. Kgl Kf8? Darn! I couldn't make the adjustment to being in a superior position, with a pawn up. Instead of this mindless move ("Get your King into play in the endgame") I should have nailed White's pawns to the white squares, and left my own pawns invulnerable on the black ones: 40 ...b4!

41. b4!
Now the Bishop can threaten my pawns, and my Knight will be tied down to protect them. 41... Ne6 42. Kf2 Ke7 43. Bb7 Nc7 My extra pawn is meaningless as long as my Knight is tied down.

19. Be2? e4 20. Nd4 Re5 21. Nb3 Re6 22. Khl
Too passive; better was Bxf6, when Black has to ruin his pawn structure with gxf6 (... Qxf6? 23. d7!) That dpawn!

Shapiro Queen's Gambit Accepted

it Roland McDermott

t Sam

44. Ke3 Kd6 45. Kd4 f5 46. BfJ g5 47. Bb7 h5
The long-striding Bishop and White's excellent King position make it impossible to set my 3-2 pawn majority in motion.

D20/14

22... Ned7 23. Rfel e3! 1. d4 d5 2. e4 dxe4!?
I don't know why I keep making this move, since my results are almost uniformly bad! I once lost a dozen games in a row with this variation to my pal Paul Zelinsky, but I keep on playing it, like a cigarette-smoker who keeps lighting up when he knows he should not. What a relief, at last, to make an attacking move!

'24. f4 Re6 25. Nd4 Bxd4
There goes my "aggressive" Bishop.

4S. g3 Ne6+ 49. Ke3 Ne7
My Knight is chained down, like a galley slave manacled to his oar.

26. Rxd4 Rexd6 27. Rxd6 Rxd6
At last! I have swapped off the menacing advanced pawn for my own e-pawn. But White is left with two Bishops "pure," against two Knights; and "he who has the Bishops has the future." Despite the symmetrical pawn structure, White has the better endgame.

50. Kd4 h4 51. gxh4 gxh4
My passed f-pawn obviously isn't going anywhere. I decided to accept the draw, swapping off all the queenside pawns.

3. e4 e5 4. d5 e6 5. Bxe4 exd5 6. exd5
I expected 6. Bxd5,. to keep the diagonal open. But that isolated dpawn kept advancing and giving me conniption fits!

52. BeS Nd5 53. Bxa6 Nxb4 54. Bxb5 Nxa2 55. Bd3 Ke6
Giving up my Knight with a harmless bit of fireworks. White's Bishop is the wrong color.

2S. Qxe3 Qb6 29. Qe3 Re6 30. Rxe6 Qxe6 31. b3?
31. Bb3 is much better of course.

56. Be4+ Kf6 57. Bxa2 YZ:YZ
And we shook hands on a draw. After some friendly analysis, I walked around the corner to pay homage to the life-size statue of James Joyce that stands on Earl Street.

6... Nf6 7. Bg5 Be5?
Hoping for the cheap shot ...Bxf2+. But this is easily avoided, and the pin on my Knight becomes troublesome. I should have played the less ambitious ...Be7.

31... Qd5
I headed for a bad endgame because I thought the middlegame would be worse yet.

32. Qa5 Ne5 33. Qel Nee4
Curious! The strongly centralized Knights hold their own against the famous bishop pair. White decides to swap down.

S. Qe2 0-0 9. Ne3 Nbd7 10. NfJ a6 11. 0-0 ReS 12. Ne4! Ba7?
Still too ambitious, keeping the Bishop on the "aggressive" diagonal. Again, the modest ...Be7 was better.

34. Bxf6 Nxf6 35. Qe2 Qd4 36. Qf3 Qa1+ 37. Qdl Qxd1+
Of course I can"t snatch the a2 pawn because of Qd8+

13. Nd6! Re7
Ouch! In our post-mortem, Paul told me he had never had to play against the Queen's Gambit Accepted. But all my experience did me no good; I have been outplayed, and my pieces are tied

3S. Bxdl Nd5!
Wow! after being the underdog for so many moves, I'm going to win a pawn at f4, or (after ...Nc3) at a2. It unusual

I enjoyed this game! After twenty-one days of hard tourism in Dublin, Meath, and Wicklow Counties, I was glad to sit down and play chess for two days. I have now played in tournaments in Tokyo, Buenos Aires, Rio de Janeiro, Innsbruck, Austria, and Havana, Cuba. Pleasant memories! ~

NORTHERN INDIANA TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP
May 3, 1997
by Roger Blaine

Top-rated Kokomo The Northern Indiana Chess Team Meet was held May 3, 1997, first at the Bittersweet Branch Library, and the final round at the home of TD Roger Blaine. Six teams were expected, but Fort Wayne could not make it, and Mishawaka and Elkhart had only partial teams, so they combined forces. Indianapolis came out ahead of second-place Kokomo by half a match point, and half a game point, too. The teams were so evenly matched that two of the six matches were ties, and all four decisive matches were only by 2 Y2 - 1 Y:z scores. Top-rated South Bend actually finished last - but by only a half match and half game. The winning team got possession of the Knight's Head plaque/trophy commissioned in 1989 by Phil Smeltzer.

There was a 5-minute speed tournament at the Elkhart County Chess Club on May 6, 1997, with 18 players being separated into two preliminary sections dubbed "National League" and "American League." The National League was won by John Fisher with a 7-0 score. The American League ended in a tie between John Daley and Dan Bryant. No "ALCS" was necessary, however, as Bryant was not able to participate in the playoff. An abbreviated "World Series" best of three match between Fisher and Daley was won by Fisher, 2-0. Roger Blaine directed.
