Understand The Position 29: “The Strength of the Weakests”

Understand The Position 29: “The Strength of the Weakests”

Chess is a revolutionary game. Like it is written in Marx’s documents, also on the board the weakest players occasionally upraise and take the fate of the state (understood as games) into their own hands. Pawns usually stand quietly and let more mobile pieces to decide for them. However, they occasionally get angry and show what they really can do.

This also happened in my last game in the Czech Extraliga. Velička – Markoš, CR 2012 Championship Black to move:

A revolutionary potential of pawns was already sharply perceived by the great strategist Nimzowitsch. Thus, the “blockade” was so important strategic concept for him.

      I take strong oiboctjen to this question. 1.We live in a democratic world. We have had enough labels already. Now to create a new bias/apartheid/discrimination by saying who is nicely dressed or not is not correct do we define nicely dressed the concept varies for everyone 3.some people look stylish while others don’t in the same clothes i am not saying attention should not be paid to dressing properly but then attention should not be paid to not dressing properly. each to his own. 4. Dress sense varies from country to country and continent to continent. We cannot define what is good dressing. thank you. I would also like to make another topic as I am first here on this very impressive chess site by ms madonna the very intelligent and very charming Ms Chess Queen. I like much all your chess ideas, material and topics. I appreciate you give free platform for views to fans and chess public. We play new chess here since only some months. Thank You.

        Good tips. Water is very important. One year I was worikng at local summer camp. Part way through the day one of the parents alerted me to a child not feeling well. We noticed he was acting a bit loopy almost like he was high or something. We decided to take him to the camp medic. The boy ended up getting taken to the emergency room where he spent the night hooked up to a IV. It turned out he had not ate or drank anything since the night before. The lad returned to camp and always had a water bottle with him and never got sick again.Dehydration and Heat Stroke are no jokes they can kill! But are easy to prevent with some common since. If you get thirsty, you waited to long to drink. If you are get to hot stop and cool off.
