First two games on the board I made for Grandad's pieces

I made a wooden board to fit Grandad's pieces. Henry and I christened it today with a couple of games. I beat him quite quickly in the first game, but in the second he had the cunning plan of copying my first eleven moves, and potentially had the better game at one point...

Third game on the board I made

I've had quite a few games with Rod this year. This game is quite typical - he'll often put together a nice combo or gain an advantage somehow, but I can normally get him due to a miscalculation somewhere further along the track or just more experience with the end game.

Grandad's Chess Pieces

An old boarded-up shed on my parents' farm contained what was left of my Grandad's bakery.

I used to love exploring old sheds when I was young. I had previously considered this shed inaccessible, but about thirty years ago managed to find a way in and slithered through the small gaps between the tightly-packed furniture, eventually discovering some wooden chess pieces in a drawer. I've had them with me ever since.

I lost a pawn from the set under the house that Davina and I were living in about twenty years ago. Our cat Malamba (or Malamber, as Davina insists it should be spelt) had a litter of kittens, and one of them knocked the pawn down a hole in the floor of the old house.

So, for a while, the set was one pawn down.

The set remained incomplete until maybe a couple of years later - I forget how long now - when I was sitting down to a game of chess with my mate Evan at Chez Eelco, the cafe that used to be at the top of Trafalgar Street in Nelson.

The cafe had a mismatched set of chess pieces. As soon as I picked up a pawn with a sudden intake of breath, I looked at Evan and he said, "Say no more, mate, say no more," understanding me completely - it matched my lost one, and I quietly slipped the pawn into the pocket of my jeans. The mismatched set still had enough pawns to make a full set and then some, so I didn't feel too bad about taking the piece.

A storm destroyed the old shed at some point through the years, so I'm glad I found and rescued the chess pieces when I had the chance.

Dane vs Nigel, Game 9 of the First DeVour Cafe Match-up Tournament

Let's start this off with a puzzle... what's Black's best move?

Maybe you got that easily enough. I didn't. It would have changed the game completely. Ah well.

Dane takes the First DeVour Cafe Match-up Tournament after being half a point to my 3.5 and winning every game since...

First to 5 points: 
  • Dane: 5.5 
  • Nigel: 3.5

Second game on the board I made

A guy turned up on my doorstep yesterday holding a car battery and charger.  His name was Carlos and he was originally from Chile. He'd left his lights on in the Monkey Bay carpark across the road and flattened his battery.

I set up up the charger inside and started chatting with him, and before long asked whether he played chess. He did, so I offered him a small goblet of vino tinto and we had a game while waiting for the battery to charge.

First game on the board I made

I caught up with Dane to christen my new board yesterday at the Grovetown Hotel.

Lovely spot. Not sure why I've never been in there before - I pass it almost every time I go in to Blenheim.

I didn't start off that great, and my blunder on move 8 prevented my white-square Bishop from having an escape route if the pawn on f4 advanced, which Dane didn't miss...

I tried not to make the win easy for him, but he won nonetheless.

It appears I might be better at making chessboards than playing chess.

Nigel vs Dane, Game 6 of the First DeVour Cafe Match-up Tournament

Good play from Dane, not so good play from me - especially move 28. I should have resigned when it was clear I wasn't going to win, but sometimes it's nice to at least watch the opponent uncomfortable with the stress of making sure a stalemate doesn't eventuate. Bad sportsmanship... what can I say? Nice work, Dane.

Dane vs Nigel, Game 5 of the First DeVour Cafe Match-up Tournament

Move 23
This game was reasonably even until my (Black) 23rd move. I should have defended my pawn in the centre with my Bishop instead of threatening the Black Bishop with my pawn.

My 24th move was even worse - I should have shifted my Rook to avoid it getting taken on the next move. I was so focused on the middle of the board I didn't even see it coming. I played on for a few more moves hoping for a hasty blunder from Dane, but it was no use.

Not a good christening for my new chess pieces. I don't want to sound superstitious, but we've been using Dane's pieces lately and I've been doing well... better leave my pieces at home next time.

Nigel vs Dane, Game 4 of the First DeVour Cafe Match-up Tournament

Perfect weather for a game of chess on one of the tables on the grass outside the cafe on Sunday.

I had the White pieces and played the same first few moves as my last game with White against Dane, but in a different order, not setting up the defence on the King side straight away.

I think I could have done better on move 15. I took the Black Knight with my Bishop (which was then taken by Black's Bishop), as I was apprehensive about the Knight coming back near where my Rook was about to attack. It should have been better to keep the Bishop in play - it had a strong line of attack by moving to e5 after the pawn had been taken by the Rook (if the Black Knight took my pawn on d3, then covering e5 before my Bishop got there, my Rook could get Black in check and a Queen sacrifice would be the only way out of it, or, if the Black Knight moved to a6 after the Rook took the pawn, it would be able to block the Rook's check by going to b8, but then the White Bishop move to e5 would cause some trouble for Black...).

Can't complain, though - I got a win out of the game.

Dane vs Nigel, Game 3 of the First DeVour Cafe Match-up Tournament

We played the third game of our DeVour Cafe Tournament on Saturday.

Dane and I played our opening moves quite quickly. We were obviously both prepared to get into the Petroff Defence, which normally happens when I've got the black pieces against Dane.

After taking a pawn to get me in check on move 14, Dane was a pawn up, and I had to move my uncastled King, but this didn't seem too bad. Castling on move 11 should have been better for me, though - resulting in an isolated pawn instead of being a pawn down.

Play continued fairly evenly with Dane being slightly better off as far I could tell, until Dane made a blunder on move 24, letting my Rook take his Bishop for free, resulting in his resignation.

Soon after getting home I noticed a txt on my phone from Dane: "Aaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrggggggghhhhhhh!!!!!!!!"

Nigel vs Dane, Game 2 of the First DeVour Cafe Match-up Tournament

After a 10-minute ride on the motorbike in the fresh August morning air, I arrived at the cafe and ordered some hot tea to warm me after the ride.

I had a plan. I pretty much always lead as White with my King's Knight - which I still planned on doing - but this time, set up a King's Indian style defence instead of focusing on attack from the start.

My defensive start ended up letting Dane gain a big presence in the centre (to be expected), but I managed to obtain the better game. I think the key moves were: first, move 10 - we both made attacking moves with pawns, which I managed to come out a pawn up from once the dust settled; then, move 15, where I took his Knight with my Bishop, creating a doubled pawn for him.

I wouldn't be surprised if Dane wins every game from here, but I'm happy I've at least got one win under my belt.

Dane vs Nigel, Game 1 of the First DeVour Cafe Match-up Tournament

I sent a txt to Dane earlier in the week:
A proposal: one morning of every weekend [...], we meet up for a morning game of chess at Annies [Devour Cafe]. We play only one game, and alternate who's white/black each weekend.

Dane was in. I had a semi-neutral party (Davina) flip a coin and the coin said Dane was going to be White.

We played our first game today.

My 4th move, bringing out my Bishop seemed pretty good at the time, but was always going to end with me a piece down for a couple of pawns - not the best start...

... and then I forgot my Knight was guarding my Rook when I moved it on move 18 - I'd seen earlier the potential for a White Bishop sacrifice (which ended up happening on White's 19th move), essentially a trade of a Bishop for a Pawn and Rook. All good for White.

I was almost ready to resign, but the shift in the game came when I advanced my b Pawn one more square - move 20 for Black. Dane didn't see that my Bishop was now attacking his Rook. He took my Pawn and then I took his Rook, essentially evening the game up.

The game continued for another 13 moves before Dane offered a draw, which I accepted.

Not a bad start to our competition, but definitely not filling me with confidence...

The First DeVour Cafe Match-up Tournament will go to the first player to get 5 points:
  • 1 for a win
  • 0.5 for a draw

J Gunsberg vs M Tschigorin, Havana, circa late 1800s

I recently picked up a 1903 copy of The Complete Chess Guide by F. J. Lee and G. H. D. Gossip.

It contained the following game between J. Gunsberg and M. Tschigorin in Havana, Cuba. There was no date given, but I estimate it was the late 1800s.
