Updates and Some Miniatures

I found some time to post new files to our website, including:

The Isolani Lecture by Steve Stoyko
The Apocalypse Attack by Michael Goeller
The Anti-Portuguese by Michael Goeller
Favorite Books by Ari Minkov
Best Game by Pete Cavaliere
Best Game by Mark Kernighan
Best Game by Scott Massey

I hope to get a few additional articles up in the next day or two, including the brilliant History of the Kenilworth Chess Club by Mike Wojcio -- which consumed much of Mike's life for two weeks and now has taken over mine. I will also be completing the move of my links pages to the KCC site.

There was a nice miniature during the five-minute tournament the other night:

[Event "KCC Blitz Tournament"]
[Site "Kenilworth, NJ"]
[Date "2005.05.26"]
[Round "?"]
[White "Cavaliere, Pete"]
[Black "Kernighan, Mark"]
[Result "0-1"]
[PlyCount "16"]
[TimeControl "G5"]
1. c4 e5 2. Nc3 Nf6 3. d3 d5 4. Bg5 d4 5.Ne4 Nxe4 6. Qa4+ Bd7 7. Bxd8 Bxa4 8. dxe4 Bb4# 0-1

Scott Massey said the game reminded him of one of his own -- played at regular time controls:

[Event "Westfield Club"]
[Site "Westfield, NJ"]
[Date "1983.??.??"]
[Round "?"]
[White "Labate, Ernesto"]
[Black "Massey, Scott"]
[Result "0-1"]
[PlyCount "12"]
[TimeControl "180"]
1. d4 Nf6 2. Bg5 c5 3. c4 $2 cxd4 4. Nf3$2 e5 $1 5. Nbd2 (5. Nxe5 Qa5+) 5... Nc6 6. Ne4 $4 Nxe4 $1 0-1
