Free download All the Wrong Moves 105 Sasha Chapin is a victim of chess Like countless amateurs before him Albert Einstein Humphrey Bogart Marcel Duchamp the game has consumed his life and his mind First captivated by it as a member of his high school chess club his passion was rekindled during an accidental encounter with chess hustlers on the streets of Kathmandu In its aftermath he forgot how to care about anything else He played at all hours for weeks at a time Like a spurned love. A Milwaukee Brewer s pitcher living in my apartment complex decided to forgo his annual winter retreat to AZ and one cold snowy night asked if I knew how to play chess Well I know the moves He proceeded to kick my butt over and over again Don t think I ever did beat him but as he moved on to San Francisco the fire he ignited stayed lit Milwaukee had an active chess scene so I got to attend some grandmaster lectures participate in club play and official tournaments Naturally the Fischer Spassky match intensified my interest during this period I gave it up for a few years after moving to CA but the flame returned when I relocated to Florida and a retired military man and I began to play on weekends I found an active chess group near the office This group contained some Russian expats as well as rank beginners so it was fun to set some evenings aside to play I had a chance to take a lesson at Sammy Reshevsky s home he a famous grandmaster 7 time US champion who beat Bobby Fisher a few times I once drove several hundred miles round trip to see the US Open in Jacksonville where I had a chance to meet Yasser Seirawan 4 time US champion and noted chess author Met a fellow in NC who beat me with surprising ease so I was not surprised to find out he was the WV state champion and we played for years by mail I play at about the level of the author of this book at about the 1500 1600 level which is the rating for the average club player My main problem is my inconsistency beat an expert once then turned around and lost to a 12 year old rated hundreds of points below me Biggest achievement Being the only one to beat a master in a 12 person simultaneous game My interest has waned the last few years competition is hard to find but for online which is not uite the same as live tournament competition I donated 222 chess books to a chess club when I downsized But I digress severely I wanted to make the point that yes the chess bug is infectious the addiction is filled with the highs and lows of tournament competition and no book I have ever read has been able to capture the nature of the game as this one does Most books on the topic are written by grandmasters and the rarefied air they breath is difficult to translate to the average chess mope like me Granted I did not travel internationally for the games I did not destroy relationships and jobs over it so maybe I was lucky I just figured out earlier than the author that there is to life than 32 figures on a 64 suare board as enjoyable as that pastime can be I had to ponder the uestion as to whether the non chess enthusiast would find this an enjoyable book and have to answer yes It does not get bogged down in theory except in a very general way names of openings opening moves some tactics and objectives but nothing a person of average intelligence would fail to understand The addiction the relationships the emotions are all too human not to relate to in this interesting narrative At times funny at times most serious but overall very entertaining
