Move in for the kill

“Chess, like love, like music, has the powers to make men happy.”
Siegbert Tarrasch (1862-1934)

“There is no remorse like a remorse of chess. It is a curse upon man. There is no happiness in chess.”
H.G. Wells (1886-1946)

“Chess is so inspiring that I do not believe a good player is capable of having an evil thought during the game.”
Wilhelm Steinitz, interview with J. Moquette, 1896

“It is always better to sacrifice your opponent’s men.”
Savielly Tartakower

Well, hey friends. Good morning. What have I been up to? Much chess training. It’s not been so long since I started playing, and tonight, after what’s seemed like hundreds, I finally won a game against another human being. Lasted for about two hours, and it was neck and neck, but I delivered the death blow in the end.

Stay tuned…
