This is probably a good place for the following announcement:

In case you're interested in a light chess warm-up before the round, I will be presenting a notable GM game on the demo board each week, starting this Friday May 1 at the club rooms (21A Electra Avenue, Ashwood), from 6:30 till 7:20 pm. All chess enthusiasts are welcome, and admission will be $5 per person.

Good initiative Chris, unfortunately I can't make the first few weeks due to my overseas travelling. However, I wish you and the Club all the best with this very interesting project!

Also a reminder that the Friday night lecture/coaching sessions are on at 6:30 pm, and finish promptly before the championship rounds. Enliven your evening with intrepid explorations into the dazzling drama of top level chess, both past and present - all for a mere $5. This Friday features an explosive Tal brilliancy, with a twist...
I plan to post each week's game at the newly created thread under 'Chess Training -> Games and Analysis', for more extended discussions after the event. Looking forward to the session this Friday! - Chris

I thought I should post to say the lecture isn't on tomorrow, but will be resuming before round 8 in a week's time - see you then!

Players who come early for the 6:30 lecture this week get to see a little-known gem; a hard-fought encounter between two of the most prominent players never to become world champion - Harry Nelson Pillsbury and Mikhail Ivanovich Chigorin.

Chigorin, apart from his introduction of the Chigorin Defence (as used in this game!) scored a creditable 10.5 - 12.5 in his 1892 World Championship challenge against Steinitz at Havana. He was known for an original and enterprising playing style, and followers of the 'How to Improve' thread may find it encouraging that this world-class player only began to play serious chess well into his 20s.
Pillsbury also came to the game relatively late in life, and was unfortunate never to challenge Lasker for the World Championship. He is especially remembered for his spectacular blindfold exhibitions, and for popularising the Queen's Gambit - as played in this game!

As usual, this event is just $5 per person, and the lecture goes approximately from 6:30 till 7:20. See you there,
Chris

Good to see Andrew Grkow again playing and doing quite well. I think he is the same Andrew Grkow who used to play in Wellington, NZ, when I was there.

For the lecture tomorrow, I have lined up an especially significant encounter - the last game Fischer and Spassky played before their 1972 World Championship! Of course this game tends to be overshadowed by the classic games of the match itself, but it was a brilliantly played Gruenfeld, with the two strongest players in the world both trying desperately to win...
