Jim West On Chess: Geraci - Diamondback

Jim West On Chess: Geraci - Diamondback

Here is a recent post at Jim West On Chess concerning a January 2009 under 1400 game played at the monthly Hamilton Chess Club in Groveville, New Jersey.

National Master Jim West of New Jersey took a quck look at my game with Sal Geraci and finds a way for White to bust Black in the opening.

Fortunately, my opponent who played white did not see it or thought that Bxf7 check was not strong enough. To paraphrase one of the great world champions Alexander Alekhine "to win against me in a game of chess, you must beat me three timee: first in the opening, secondly in the middlegame , and lastly in the endgame"
