The secrecy of correspondence chess Specialist
The secrecy of correspondence chess Specialist With the advent of the computer program used in correspondence chess, many players on the board remains convinced that the CC Specialist "is nothing more than a talent. The problem with this theory is, of course, that the CC-specialists have been around a long, long time ... CJS Purdy - G.F. McIntosh [D10] private CC Match, 1936 [Purdy] 1.d4 d5 2.c4 c6 3.e3 Nf6 4.Nc3 Bf5 5.cxd5 Nxd5 6.Nge2 QA5! 7.f3? e5! 8.e4 exd4! 9.Qxd4 NB4! 10.Qd1 N8a6! 11.Nf4 Rd8 12.Bd2 Bd6 13.Qb1 Nc5! 14.Nfd5? cxd5 15.Nxd5 BG3 +! 16.hxg3 Rxd5 17.Qd1 Qb6! 18.Bb5 + BD7!

RTAs, in June 1937.) 0-1 By the time this game in ACR, Purdy was the champion of the board of Australia. He went to a FIDE IM, and 1 World Champion chess match. McIntosh was a "Class A" player on the board, but no more (the first fifty years of correspondence Chess League of Australia, CCLA, 1980). How is it possible for a normal over-the-board player to a monster in correspondence chess? Of course, in 1936, Mr. Purdy was not the question of whether the defendant was using a computer in their game. The example of the correspondence chess specialist is one of the real mysteries of chess, even for the present. In summary, everyone has access to information as well. Databases, opening books, motors, etc., should not be the strongest player of the board have a huge advantage in talent? He also has all these tools. My theory regarding CC-specialists, as are possible, is simple. First, correspondence chess is another form of game, which requires a different skill. Secondly, the additional time for reflection is a leveling factor. Correspondence games are not generally ruined by obvious errors, time control nervousness, and so forth. Correspondence may chessplayers heart to know that are in competition with a strong correspondence chess champion. In my more than the Chamber of days, I just stood in awe master play. What would have happened often so fast, what Scramble for the time I had real problems understanding what was happening. In a letter, the game, on the other hand, I have plenty of time to study, work on projects to try different things. Recently, GM Peter Leko, one of the best chess players in the world, looking serious correspondence chess play in a team. He was nicked for a few moves (and at least one loss, I know) by - guess who? Correspondence Chess specialists. The motivation may be another important factor in this context - but the mystery of correspondence chess specialist! The author Copyright © 1998-2005 by John C.
