·£ Championship z o IU O C TO I/I I to ft 0) JD E a -a Stevens BLAKE STEVENS .. Texas State Champion Early ;this year- we set about examining iri some detail the Giuqcb Piano, the opening arising froni 1 P-K4;" P-K4; 2 N-KB3, N- QB3; 3 B-B4/B-B4; 4 P-B3. The defensive i ; . JBrNi and 4 . .OP-Q3 which lead to passive, but approximately equal, games were;studied, step by step, and t h e - conclusion _ w a s r e a c h e d that both these systems were inferior inferior to the active 4 : . . , N-KB3. N e x t , readers w e r e j shown .why 5 0-0 and 5 P-Q3 lines were not completely completely favorable for While. It is time to continue the study of the Giuoco. After 4 . . . N-KM;_5 P-Q4I, Black must capture 5 . . . PxP; 6 PxP, and then give check 6 ... B-N5ch. Now, if White is not prepared to go into the labyrinth (1 N-B3) of complexities, he has the pusillanimous pusillanimous 7 B-Q2. (7 K-B1, P-Q4; 8 PxP.KNxPP; 9 N-B3.B-K3; 10 Q-K2.0-0! is good for Black). After 7 B-Q2, BxBch is weak!: 8 QNxB,P-Q4; 9 PxP,NxP(on Black's Q4); -10 0-0,0-0; 11 Q- 12 QR-B1.Q-N3; 14 Q-R3.B-K3; 15N-K4! ,QR-Q1!; 16 N/K4-N5 with slight plus. Correct for Black after 7 B-Q2, is KNxP; 8 BxB.NxB; and now it is White who has a chance to err. Fancy but fruitless is 9 BxPch, KxB; 10 Q-N3ch,P-Q4; 11 N-K5ch, K-K3; 12 QxN,P-B4!; 12 Q-R4, Q-N3-Black's King is safe enough. Instead of 9 BxPch, While can play 9 Q-N3.P-Q4; 10 QxN.PxB; 11 0-«, Q-Q3; 12 QxBP.O 0 equal. Crucial Lines 1 P-K4,P-K4; 2 N-KB3, N-QB3; B-B4, B-B4; 4 P-B3.N-KB3; 5 P-Q4, PxP; 6 PxP.B -N5 ch; 7 N-B3 brings us to the heart of the matter. Black can still keep'a relatively closed position with 7 i i . P-Q4; PxP,NxP?5; 9 Q-0,B-K3;, 10 B-KN5 B-K2; 11 NxN.BxN; 12 KBxB, WxB; 13 BxB.NjiB;. :14 R-K1.P- KB3; 15 Q-K2,Q-Q2; 16 QR-B1, K-B2!(and now if: 17 QxNch, QxQ; 18 RxQ.KxH; 19 RxPch, K-Q3; 20 RkQNPiKR-QBl; 21 :P- KR3.R-B2!). · , The The position after 16 ... K-B2 Is even. But if Black is ambitious, he may not settle for the 7 ... F-Q4 line, and. Instead, plunge headlong into 7 '. . . NxKP. Then White, having said A, must say B, 8 O-O, leaving two repiys for Black 8 ... BxN or 8 ... NxN. We will conclude this analysis analysis next week. League Play In one or two weeks the League matches will be completed. Having Having just beaten Paslinsky in their second game, Maurice Perea appears appears a cinch for top honors in Board One contests. This does not necessarily mean that Perca's team will win, for it's the results of all his team members which counts. After the League Matches are concluded, the San AntOnio Chess Club will sponsor a chess party to be held at the Lions Field Club house. Quizzes, contests, anecdotes, anecdotes, and other amusements are planned. Watch for the date. Problem While (o play and draw
