Logical Chess Talk
Paisley Chess Club invites you to attend a series of talks at our club.

They will be delivered by our own FIDE rated expert Richard Cochrane and will explore games from Irving Chernev's classic book " Logical Chess Move By Move" .

The talks will take place every Monday (4th, 11th, 18th and 25th) in August . They will start at 7.30 in the evening and finish around 9.00.

Players attending the talks may stay behind afterwards for a chat or a game of chess if they wish.

Entry to these talks is free of charge for Chess Scotland members.

hi there

I would like to attend , I take it it's still on?
It is very much still on and you are welcome to attend. Feel free to invite your friends.
Tonight's Games

1) von Scheve - Teichmann, 2)Liubarski - Soultanbeieff and 3) Colle - Delvaux, Gand-Terneuzen. The third of these games would probably have the name most familiar to those assembled, Edgar Colle, and will feature a Colle System game, as handled by the inventor of the entire system.

The first two games will feature the dangers of a poor plan, causing wins in less than 20 moves. The third shows how a clear and correct plan can make a win surprisingly easy against an unwary opponent.

Tonight's games

Joseph Blackburne - Blanchard, London, 1891, Ruger - Gebhard, Dresden, 1915 and Zeissl - Walthoffen, Vienna, 1899.
Tonight's talks feature games involving the French, Colle and Ruy Lopez openings.
A big thank you to everyone who has supported the recent series of talks by Richard on the Logical Chess books.
Don't forget the final one is Monday (25th) and is worth seeing even if you have missed the others. A good turn out will increase the chance of something like this happening again.
The games for the last one will be Tarrasch - Eckart, Nuremberg 1889, (A French Tarrasch by the man himself), Flohr - Pitschak, Bilin 1930 (an upset with the higher rated player - Flohr- losing) and finally a longer game, Canal - Capablanca, Budapest 1929, which is a bit of a mystery game as the author invites the reader to guess which Black pawn decides the game
