As a progressive liberal, I believe a woman has the right to an abortion up to five years after birth. Her body, her choice.

As a progressive liberal, I don't believe we need an ancient book to teach us our morals because in modern times we can base our morals on reason. You should be able to do whatever you want so long as it does not harm anyone else.

As a progressive liberal, I am fighting for the rights of Incestuals. These are people, like a father and his adult age son, who engage in a homosexual relationship. Stop incest-shaming them! There's nothing wrong with a father-son homosexual relationship. It's good, moral and if they are in love, then love is love.

As a progressive liberal parent, I am against slut-shaming. I have encouraged my daughter to sleep around with as many men as she can. She's up to 650ish. We are not going to keep her from enjoying life and hold her to some outdated Christian value system. She now has over 22,000 Facebook friends.

As a progressive liberal, I think we need more homosexuals in the Boy Scouts, so they can sleep in the tents late at night with the young boys out in the woods alone.

As a progressive liberal, I HATE TRUMP on moral grounds.

As a progressive liberal, I FOOKIN hate Jews. Not because they are Jews, but because they are Zionists (a big difference).

My wife is a strong woman and I'm not afraid to have a strong woman for a wife. She sleeps with other men but she doesn't love them. She only loves me, so I'm okay with it. Our relationship is strong so I'm not worried about losing her.

As a progressive liberal, I let my son, age 11, decide that he wanted to be a girl, so we went to the doctor and had his weiner cut off. We aren't going to push our values on him.

As an atheist, I say that there's nothing objectively wrong with owning black people, whipping them for fun, taking a slave's wife to use and abuse for the evening, returning her to her family bloodied and defiled, and laughing about it with your southern, white, red-neck friends. You may find that distasteful, but that is only your opinion. You may be of the <moral opinion> that it's wrong, but it's merely your opinion. It's not a moral <fact> that it's wrong. I'm glad we agree.

As a progressive liberal, I believe that long ago it rained on the rocks and the rocks came to life.

A man commits a violent crime, a terrible crime, a crime he should be put to death for. Question: is it <just> to kill his son instead?

Answer: Yes.

As a progressive liberal, I say there is no moral difference between prostitution and homosexuality. If homosexuals can enjoy their rights, why not prostitutes?

As a progressive liberal, I think ATM fees are TOO HIGH, but taxes are too low.

  George Wallace: About the French, one of the best most liberating things I figured out, after years of playing it, was that allowing White to chop off a knight on f5 is almost always to Black's advantage.

My dogmatic thinking wouldn't allow me to enter into those kinds of positions early on. I wanted to avoid doubled pawns, and especially I didn't want my center pawns to be all messed up like that. However, I found that the lsb sits nicely on e6 holding the position together. Black can just <sit> on it.

I also found ...h6 to be pretty effective in conjunction with ...Be6, but best of all, I found that Black can often push the pawn from f5 to f4 and the bad bishop becomes a very good bishop.

There's an old saying among French players that the best-kept secret in chess is that the lsb is the best piece on the board. I guess there's something to that.

It's usually in the Advance Variation that I end up in these positions though, not the Winawer.

  thegoodanarchist: <diceman: After I started playing The French, I fell in love with it, and dropped the Caro-Kann completely.>

I just don't understand the French. At all. It seems weird to me, almost as if it is a separate game, apart from chess. Except for Carlsen, it seems like the first player to castle usually loses the game!

While watching the meltwater events on line, I noticed that the strong GMs commentating on the games always refer to the "French School of Suffering" when they talk about the opening. And they don't play it very often either! That tells me a lot about what they think of it.

I don't think it's been used in a WCC match since Korchnoi.

  George Wallace: <OhioChessFan: My problem with the French is more practical than philosophical. Every move, every single move, I use time working out if White can play Bxh7+.>

Before I ever opened a chess book or even knew who Bobby Fischer was, I used to play chess at a coffee house in town and I was one of the best players there - probably with a strength equal to about a 1000 player, but there wasn't a real chess player among us. I didn't even know that openings existed.

But, I loved when someone would play 1...e6 against me because I knew about the Bxh7+ sac and loved playing it. It was this sac and the fact that I was aware of a thing called Knight Forks that won me all my games. heh.

Fast forward a few years.

I started to read about chess and picked up Nimzovich's Chess Praxis from the library. Just some chess book. Any book. Just grabbed it off the shelf because the back cover said the author did his best to systematize chess according to principles and rules, and I figured I could learn that.

I came across some of his French Defense games in that book where he played black and I was shocked that there was actually a way to play that system as black that actually made sense. As in, a legitimate defense against e4. That book had a profound influence upon my outlook and development as a chess player. I was struck by the profundity of Nimzo's commentary and especially the way he explained the French, which I, until that time, had considered a blunder on move 1.

I used to get crushed on the kingside in my early years, but that almost never happens anymore. I get crushed in other ways, surely, but not with a k-side attack wipeout. If you play it correctly, White is too busy making sure Black doesn't easily equalize in the center to get an attack going on the k-side. Also, k-side attacks work best when there is white pawn on e5. A good French player won't tolerate that and quickly plays ...f6, whether he ends up with a backward pawn on e6 or not.

I studied the opening for decades now, read a lot of books, played some tournament games with it, had mixed success with it, but over the last 10 years or so, I've played thousands and thousands of blitz games with it, trying out all kinds of ideas, challenging my dogmas, and that has helped me become a much better French player.

It is a shame that we don't see it at the highest level that much. It doesn't seem to do so well up there, but the top chess engines win with it as black against other top engines, so I think it's sound.

Well at that point "book" should protect you.
If GMs have played an opening, there won't be any shots in it.

That's the way we like it. :)

<It seems weird to me, almost as if it is a separate game, apart from chess.>

I would suggest being prepped the most in the Advance Caro-Kann, as that will look the most like a French Defense.

  George Wallace: Speaking of the 4...b6 French, here's win with it against a 2500 level player.

Not a great game or anything, but it shows you how even a very good player can go wrong so easily.

I could have played ...Nxe5 here discovering an attack on the Bg5, but I played for simply gaining space and giving up the exchange, figuring the initiative was still in Black's hands. Taking the pawn was better though.

I guess he wanted to keep as many pieces on the board as he could, especially since the bishop is aggressively posted at f6, but perhaps he should have taken the exchange.

  diceman: My, my, how chess study has changed!

I remember coming across this game, and using it as a model of how to play these types of positions.

J Peters vs Seirawan, 1975

While this type of Caro ending may seem somewhat dry. I particularly liked 33...Rg8!, and 34...g6! as a nugget to remember. Creating play by opening the g file, was useful in certain types of Caro endings.

For those who don't pay attention to things like move orders, colors reversed.

Take note that the Exchange Caro-Kann:

Is the same pawn formation (with colors reversed) as the Exchange Queen's Gambit:

Most ideas from the Queen's Gambit can be used in the Exchange Caro-Kann.

Yes.
It's funny, my club would give out a trophy, if you won your monthly quad. One month, there was a problem with the trophy supplier. They gave out like a $10, or $15, prize instead.

Back then, books were like $3, $4, $5 bucks, so you could actually pick up a few. I saw <Botvinnik's 100 Selected Games> but I didn't even know who he was!

Since information was everything, in a world without the internet. I was like <That's almost two, My 60 Memorable Games> so I'm getting it!

I was shocked when I got home, and found out he played the Dutch, French, Caro, and English! Basically my entire opening repertoire.

Not only that, he played them against the top players in the world, and in the most prestigious tournaments, and the WCC.

Later on, when I started working, I filled in the gaps with individual books on the matches.

Machulsky vs Bronstein, 1973

In a worse position, white plays 26.Qc2? (probably looking to play 27.Ne3) missing 26...Nh4!

By 35...Rc1 white just has a lost ending.

  George Wallace: From the VERBOTEN! files:

The following is the intro to a very interesting article.

<The World Economic Forum (WEF) has been involved in the pandemic hoax in several ways.

First, the WEF was, together with the Gates Foundation, a sponsor of the prescient "Event 201" coronavirus pandemic simulation exercise, held in New York City on October 18, 2019 - the same day as the opening of the Wuhan Military World Games, seen by some as "ground zero" of the global pandemic. China itself has argued that US military athletes may have brought the virus to Wuhan.

Second, the WEF has been a leading proponent of digital biometric identity systems, arguing that they will make societies and industries more efficient, more productive and more secure. In July 2019, the WEF started a project to "shape the future of travel with biometric-enabled digital traveller identity management". In addition, the WEF collaborates with the Gates and Rockefeller-funded ID2020 alliance that runs a program to "provide digital ID with vaccines". In particular, ID2020 sees the vaccination of children as "an entry point for digital identity."

Great analysis! I love Steinitz's games, games from the 1800s (or earlier). Zukertort was incredibly talented too. For a while, maybe 2 or 3 years ago, I studied a Steinitz game every night for a few months. My chess.com rating went up a couple hundred points after stagnating for years.

What I found most interesting, was to deeply study Steinitiz's style and approach leading up to 1873 and then watching it change during the Vienna tournament and thereafter. Fascinating from a chess/philosophy point of view.

When I clicked to your video, I didn't realize that was Kamsky at first. He looks a lot different with longish hair. His analysis is so crips and to the point. I'm going to watch all of his Steinitz vids.
