Support The Troops

Game Of The Week


This past Fourth of July, I was asking myself, “Have I done enough to support the troops?”


Well, no, I haven’t done anything, but when I heard about this recent, stunning, military victory that involved a local Air Force SSGT, I thought I could use my newsletter to spread the good news.


What follows comes from an article “Air Force takes service title,” by David R. Sands that was published in THE WASHINGTON TIMES on June 18, 2005:


“…Class A player Nathaniel Ola, a member of the victorious Air Force squadron, showed the proper way to repel a premature sortie in his game against Army expert Rudy Tia Jr. Tia has a long record of success in the military tournament, but his decision to snatch a pawn early in this Pirc Defense backfires badly. Black's 8. Qd2 Nxg4!? 9. Bxg4 Qh4+ looks promising on the surface, as Black recovers his piece and goes up a pawn. But on 10. Qf2! Qxg4 11. Nge2 Qe6 12. 0-0-0 a6?! (it's not clear what this move accomplishes) 13. Rhf1, White's developmental lead has grown to alarming proportions. In such positions, a single slip by the defender can prove fatal. Tia gets careless with 17. f5 Nf8? (…Black bolsters the g6 square, but a more active blocking move such as 17...Bf6 was called for) 18. f6! Bxf6 19. Rxf6! Qxf6 (the craven 19...Be6 20. Bg5 Qc5 21. b4 Qxb4 22. Qxe5 leaves White ahead on material and buzzing with threats) 20. Bg5, and the queen dare not run away and allow 21. Rd8 mate. Ola plays the remainder of the game with admirable energy, breaking down Black's defenses with a timely exchange sacrifice (27. Rxg4!) and using his queen and knight to chase down the Black king. It's over on 33. Nf5 Rg6 34. Qh4 (threatening 35. Qh8+ Rg8 36. Qh6+ Ke8 37. Qf6 Kd7 38. Qd6+ Kc8 39. Ne7 mate) f6 35. Qh8+, and Black resigns in view of 35...Rg8 (Kf7 36. Qh7+ Ke6 37. Qe7 mate) 36. Qxf6+ Ke8 37. Qe7 mate…”

This Week In Chess

Tuesday July 5, 2005


On June 28, the CSCC had 24 members in attendance. In the USCF-rated games (G90), Richard Cordovano clobbered Mike Davis, Roy Heath hammered Joe Pahk (Joe said he prefers the term hammered to mauled so it was good he had a different opponent this week), Jerry Maier massacred Tom Rosado, and Buck Buchanan blasted Tony Telinbacco in a G60.


The rest of the evening was filled with club-rated ladder games (G15). Each member faces an opponent, who is close in rating, in a 2-game match. The members can continue playing matches until the opponents are tired of playing that particular member. Here are the final results:
