In short, Lakdawala credits Del Rosario for material which the latter lifted from C.N. 3961, and Lakdawala’s insertion of the ‘full of holes’ remark in the story of a Mexican pupil is a plain fabrication, as is his claim that Capablanca called 2 Ne2 ‘perhaps a refutation’.

My understanding of the chess learning process deepened when I started teaching a young fellow by the name of Tanraj Sohal. I learned as much by teaching him as he did, perhaps more so since he is a much more gifted player than I am. However, I had wisdom and experience on my side, and together we improved his game to the point that he won the Canadian Championship for his grade that year. To be fair, I should point out that he placed second the year before, when I was not coaching him, so I cannot take much credit for this. But I can say that I did learn a lot about learning chess!

Chess strategy consists of setting and achieving long-term positioning advantages during the game – for example, where to place different pieces – while tactics concentrate on immediate maneuver. These two parts of the chess-playing process cannot be completely separated, because strategic goals are mostly achieved through tactics, while the tactical opportunities are based on the previous strategy of play. A game of chess is normally divided into three phases: opening, typically the first 10 moves, when players move their pieces to useful positions for the coming battle; then middlegame; and last the endgame, when most of the pieces are gone, kings typically take a more active part in the struggle, and pawn promotion is often decisive.

If the player to move has no legal move, the game is over; it is either a checkmate (a loss for the player with no legal moves) if the king is under attack, or a stalemate (a draw) if the king is not.

Das first heard of chessboxing in the course of his work as a kickboxing administrator. Trained in the martial arts, Das is a mostly self-taught kickboxer who has represented Bengal and India in kickboxing competitions from the years 1997-2003. He won an individual medal for India in Oman in 2003, and retired that year from the anonymity that marks an athlete’s life in India to the relative respectability of sports administration. Currently the secretary of the Kickboxing Federation of India , he has served as manager of the national kickboxing team on a number of tours. He also runs a gym and kickboxing coaching centre (plastered with posters of Swami Vivekananda and motivational messages) in Kolkata, which doubles up as a space for chess boxing lessons on Sundays. His chess boxing initiatives have primarily taken shape owing to the network he has developed as a kickboxing official and coach.
