The Result of Excessive Pawn Grabbing

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

In this picture of a chess position from a blitz game played at the Internet Chess Club, Black has just captured a pawn at b2 and has two extra pawns on the board. Moreover, he has a check with Bishop to d4 to buy some time.

However due to Black’s excessive greed and the low quality and mobility of his forces compared to White’s optimally placed pieces, Black is dead lost. The forlorn state of Black’s Queen side is partially due to the time he wasted grabbing pawns.

Sometimes pawn snatching is justified and it often takes master level chess acuity to discern when pawn grabbing can be carried out, but after White played Bg5 in the diagrammed chess position Black will have no way to prevent the eventual passed e pawn from crashing through.

  1. There seems to be a lot of concern about whether pawn shop records are public record. Generally speaking pawn shop bookkeeping records are NOT made public according to the following statute. I believe some exceptions may have been made in Grand Junction Colorado and other places on Western Slopes of the Rockies.

    Pawn shop Records, including reports to the Secretary, maintained by pawnbrokers shall be confidential, and no disclosure of pawnbroker records shall be made except disclosures authorized by this Act or ordered by a court of competent jurisdiction. No record transferred to a governmental official shall be improperly disclosed, provided that use of those records as evidence of a felony or misdemeanor shall be a proper purpose.

  2. Was at the Scarlet Chess Club in Jonesboro,Arkansas. I believe the club convened at a Barnes and Noble bookstore? Anyway, I played somebody named Patrick Wolf. It did not occur to me at the time that there was a very strong American Grandmaster named Patrick Wolff who gave up the game for Wall Street I heard. Since the spelling of the kid I played is different, I guess he is no relation but maybe some died in the wool chess fanatic named his kid after the real Patrick Wolff………..
