CHESS RAMBLING NOT A DAILY BLOG
That is a totally funky position!!I love playing through some of those old games! The swashbuckling is just fun to watch.I have been doing some tactics training out of a book titled Chess Gems (using the method my coach gave me for studying tactics).Anyway, this book Chess Gems has a bunch of old combinations from many games from the LONG ago past. It is a really cool way to practice tactics and check out some chess history!
I think it's great to play over these games from time to time.It restores what chess was/should be about,enjoyment.The games where played by both players,with an almost who can checkmate quickest.Often not bothering about things like control of the centre,king saftey or pawn structures.Their is definitly a place in chess for these games.
I remember seeing this beautiful position many years ago in a book from the series "World's great chess players". I would call it returning to the roots.
When I first saw this game many years ago, I thought it was fantastic. Now I just think it is dumb that White did not organize some king-side defense, like at least stop creating threats and play pxp, something.
