Cracking Chess

Ok, I saw this page About chess and math, and in the comments they talked about cracking chess / memorizing chess.

In the past I memorized much, I still remember about 40 decimals of pi ( fluently in danish )
The record in memorizing pi is 100.000 decimals, but if you "just" use a year on it i think you can memorize 10.000 (with the right method).

If we are experienced in chess, now some openings and know what to do and what not to do, (for example, I am sure you know what you will do against e4, if you dont, you have a problem) this will maybe get the number of positions to remember down by 5%.

Another thing you can do is memorizing endgame and mating patterns. I think this will improve your chess greatly. I think that if you learn the principles in all 3 and 4 men positions, and with the right method, you will improve much.

I will post more on this interesting topic later!

I would like to say to anyone who plays free online chess, Dont Go to Chesscube.com !!!
It is only a bunch of thieves trying to steal all your money!
I would recommend chess.com or gameknot.com or redhotpawn.com
Sorry for the short post but i am just too angry to write anything else.
Have a good day !

Annotated Game: Greco vs. NN (1619)

This will be a little annotated game.
1. e4 b6
This is The Owen Defense. It is not very common, But it threatens with a fianchetto.
2. d4 Bb7
White tries to own the center, as this is a Opening principle. Black makes a Fianchetto with the bishop and threatens e4 and maybe later g2.
3. Bd3 f5
White develops, and black offers the Matovinsky Gambit, if white exf5 then the bishop takes on g2 and will then take the Rook.
4. exf5?! Bxg2
White accepts the Gambit, and black goes to action.

5. Qh5+! g6
 White makes a check and blacks only move is g6.

6. fxg6 Nf6
White takes the pawn, and black then attacks the Queen.

7. gxh7+ Nxh5
It looks like White is going to lose, but this is actually a mate in one position : 
This is one of my favorite games from Greco, I love his sacrificial way of playing, but if he had played now, he surely would have lost against the masters.
See ya next time!
