Free Thanksgiving Chess Camp Instructions

The start of DailyChessMusings.com Free Thanksgiving Chess Camp is now just days away! Your child will find their assignments in the group they selected as their experience level. Please have him or her join me live on our YouTube page at 10:00 am Pacific for our Welcome Meeting each day of the camp. Immediately after the meeting, students should check their group’s daily itinerary at DailyChessMusings.com and join the Tournament for their section (Absolute Beginners and Beginners will not be playing in a tournament).

We will post the daily itinerary for each group by 9:00 am each day. We do not post in advance to avoid people doing everything before we have even begun.

Important: Before camp begins you should make sure that you have subscribed to our YouTube Channel, bookmarked our DailyChessMusings page and joined our Chess.com Club so you do not miss any important updates, new material, chess games or live broadcasts. 

See you Friday,

Chris Torres

Alex Trebek (July 22, 1940 – Nov. 8, 2020)

Today, we lost the beloved host of the television game show Jeopardy to cancer. I have many fond memories of watching Jeopardy during his thirty-seven years as the host. However, I thought it would be particularly fitting for this blog to share the Double Jeopardy category from Show # 5651 – Monday, March 16th, 2009. It was on this day, during the Tournament of Champions, that Alex Trebek unveiled the category entitled, “Let’s Talk About Chess, Champs!” I present the category for your pleasure below:

Let’s Talk About Chess, Champs!

$400:  Even with two extra pawns, white can’t force a win here, because these pieces can travel only on opposite-colored squares.

$800:  Literally “in passing”, it’s the 2-word term for how a pawn can capture another pawn that’s moved past it.

$1200:  White should have an easy win here, but he blows it by moving his queen to the D6 square, leading to this drawn outcome.

$1600:  Initiated by the moves E4 E6, this defense got its name from its use by a Paris team in an 1834 match with London.

$2000:  White can’t move his knight, because doing so would expose his king; the knight’s said to be stuck to the king with this tactic, named for a pointy little object.

Reuters Calculations vs Kornacki’s

In 2000, Kornacki was more accurate than Reuter.
