Say the white King is on e1 with the white Rook on h1 (this is the initial setup at the start of the game). You can make the move called short castling by moving the King to g1 and the Rook to f1. This move does have some restrictions – the squares in between the Rook and King must be empty, neither the Kind or Rook can have been moved before and the King cannot be in check. Note that even though you move two pieces, this is considered to be one move.
The Colle System is one of those openings that are very solid if your opponent plays into the system. Black can avoid this opening all together by playing g6 instead of e6 at move three and opt to go into a King’s Indian formation. I have to say that this is a very fun opening to play because it is for players of all styles. Some may argue with me about that but this is so solid, just by glancing at it really, and yet some tactical brilliancies have come out of this opening.
Before we do that, we need to know how the pieces are set up. The pieces are set up on the two back rows of the chess board. The 8 pawns are set up in the front row. Behind them from left to right are the queen’s rook, queen’s knight, queen’s bishop, queen, king, king’s bishop, king’s knight and king’s rook. The black pieces are set up to mirror the white pieces. In other words, the kings are facing each other and the queens are facing each other.
This is Viswanathan Anand’s fifth crown and fourth in a row and he a prize money of approximately $1.4 million as prize money. He has been the world champion since 2007. Addicted! Really helps you up your game. The CPU plays really well. However, I would have loved it if there was a tutorial of chess openings and if there was a database of grandmaster games that we could learn from. Two-time national champion Nigalidze was exposed when Petrosian grew suspicious about his frequent trips to the lavatory during Saturday’s sixth-round match. chess, looked upon in this connection, wears a mantle of romance; there is a spell upon it of that departed glory!
