You have the values for game in hearts even if partner has a minimum response, and there's a simple way to show your power jump to four hearts. A jump to three hearts would be invitational, not. forcing. 2. You have enough to go on to game, and the honors in the black suits suggest you should select three no-trump. You have a balanced hand and have already told partner you have six hearts. Nine tricks should be easier to make than 10. 3. The pre-empt has wreaked its havoc. You would like to tell partner about your heart suit, but four hearts would not be forcing and could result in missing a slam. All you can do is show your strength with a cue bid of four spades and hope you can manage the rest of the auction. 4. That depends on your methods. If you use the old-fashioned Goren methods, where an opening bid of two no-trump shows a balanced 22-24, this hand is ideal possession of a five-card major is no bar to an opening bid of two no-trump. If your two no-trump range is 21-22, you must start with two clubs. 5. Obviously, some jump is in order to show the strength of your hand. Since we are averse to jump raising partner's suit without four-card support, the logical alternative is a jump to three diamonds. 6. There's an awful lot of bidding going on, and we're not sure whether partner's three spades is a real suit or just lead-directing. Nevertheless, we are going to bid four spades. If that's a specious suit, partner will correct to clubs. By Boris Kogan Sprriaf to The fimnml-ConstitutuH FACTS AND REFLECTIONS: Frederick Yates Frederick Yates (1884 1932) earned a reputation in the first half of this century as a tenacious player and a dangerous opponent. As six-time British champion, he competed in many international tournaments between 1910 and 1931. His tournament results during his chess career were never outstanding. A closer examination of his performances reveals an unusual paradox: his wins came against the strongest masters while his losses were often against the weakest players. In one of his early competitions (Hamburg, 1910), Siegbert Tarrasch criticized his entry into the event, citing his weak play and lack of master level experience. There was some truth in this accusation as Yates won only one game in the entire tournament, defeating Tarrasch in 33 moves. As his contemporary masters soon discovered, Yates was capable of defeating anyone. With the exception of Emanuel Lasker and Jose Capablanca, he claimed as his victims most of the greatest living masters of his day, including Akiba Rubinstein, Aron Nimzovich, Efirn Bogoljubow, Max Euwe, Saviely Tartakower, Richard Reti and Aleander Alekhine. It is obvious that Yates played to the level of the opposition. In the 1920s, he was the chief English representative in international chess circles and reported the events as the chess correspondent for the Manchester Guardian. Known as an observant, articulate and conscientious writer, his books in collaboration with William Winter earned him a well-respected reputation. His most notable books describe the World Chess Championship matches, Capablanca vs. Alekhine (1927) and Alekhine vs. Bogoljubow (1229). A modest man who rarely allowed his games to be published, Yates had many non-chess interests. Possessing a versatile mind, he ' could expound on a wide range of topics. SIMPLE CHESS 100: Rook Endgame Tactics Part 4 While Rook endgames are very common, their variety and subtleness require careful study and practice. Here are two examples that will help the reader improve his endgame tactics. Set up this position from Reti-Euwe, Budapest, 1940: WK at el, WR at a8. BK at c7, BR at a2, BPs at a3 & e2. Black to move. Black has two extra Pawns but a win is not easy. If the Black King approaches either Pawn, the White Rook will check the King from behind, preventing Black from winning.
