Converting Dangerous Middle Game to Comfortable Endgame Advantage

Despite Black’s horrible bishop at d5, he has at least a perpetual check because of the weak square at g3 unless White reacts properly. Also note that black has pawns permanently fixed on the white squares b5, c6, and e4. Why is this such a big deal? Because the black laufer will have blocked thoroughfares/diagonals in all endings AND to borrow a Hans Kmoch term suffers from acute melanpenia!

What in the hell does acute melanpenia mean? It means that Black is irrecoverably weak on the dark squares in all end games. All of this excessive terminology means that White would be well served to trade off his Queen  and possibly Rook for their Black counterparts and infiltrate the second player’s position on the dark squares with his King. This would likely lead to a Zugzwang position winning for White. In the middle game, melanpenia or insufficient control of the black squares might not be as noteworthy.

Conclusion: If the first player makes the move Qd6 guarding the ultra sensitive g3 square, a heavy piece liquidation will probably ensue steering towards aforementioned endgame! BTW, after Qd6, Rf3?! fails to Qd8 and Qg5 check!

  1. One of the things that distinguishes Chicago Chess is that Team-Chess is advanced and promoted. The Chicago Industrial Chess league is a true beacon and whoever conceived of it vis a vis a game that is generally a showcase for individuals to shine should be commended!
    I believe there were a few posts on the Jim (James) West Chess Blog that denounced the notion of promoting organized team chess. I do not remember the substance of the opposition to organized team chess, but do not believe there could possibly be a sound argument against it.( Site admin: Mr West, poster’s language indicate he was uncertain it was your blog. Does anyone else have publishing privileges on your blog? I will remove this post if you prefer)
    Also, Mr West please put your chess content on something other than the free blogspot platform. All that excellent work could be gone. You have no control or legal remedies if site fails.

    As a side note, I am surprised that Albert Chow never made IM or GM. Even among chess players, Albert possessed unrivaled intensity and verve. Maybe like many talented chess players, making a living got in the way of his chess growth. When I lived in that area Albert Chow was known for harshly snapping at kibitzers who made careless, offhand comments about a game that Albert had just lost, which was very rare in the 90’s.

    1. Whoever wrote this must remember Daaim Shabazz and Marvin dandridge who were both strong chess players and ambassadors of the royal game. The hulking dandridge was characterized by one as a bowl of tactics.
