TAL     Mansour aka Mick Bighamian(do NOT believe the BS circulating about Mick being ant-Semitic. Many, including the well respected chess blogger Glen Wilson, would personally attest to the fact that Bighamian treated all ethnic groups with dignity and respect. That crap about an email originating from an account from his Los Angeles chess club was somebody else logged into his account maliciously trying to impersonate him or somebody in his club. Very much akin to the infamous fiasco associated with the husband of the lady that used to head up the chess program in Lubbock,TX), while teaching the Royal Game in Houston, Texas, once gave a beautiful lecture on refuting unjustified aggression in a game of chess. In life, due to High Testosterone or a nagging wife, one often finds themselves in a foul mood which can lead to aggressive acts like road rage. The same thing happens in chess where a player goes for the throat rather than playing the more circumspect moves dictated by opening principles.

In the following 3 minute game played at the internet chess club, Tikeve played the advanced French and chose to jettison his King Side pawns while leaving his Monarch vulnerably placed in the center of the chess board. The position looks dangerous for Black, but it is White who is completely busted.

White plays Ke2 placing his King on the same diagonal as his Queen at d3. This, of course, puts the d7 Bishop on alert to get to the f1-a6 diagonal mucho pronto. Bb5 pinning the lady to the King is possible but not best at this point. However, is there a preparatory move that will force the overly aggressive manager of the White pieces to “say uncle” ?
