English Opening Jorge Quinones

Easy chess opening checkmates appear early in the game if the king is too exposed, even for just a little bit. Chess kings should hide behind the safety of pawns in the same way generals and kings lead battles from the rear in the real world. This is all the more true when the heavy chess pieces are still on the board. The monarch risks great danger if he ventures forth even a short distance onto an open line or in front of the pawns. However luck favors the bold in most chess games for tactics and strategy.

The Blackmar-Diemer Gambit player Jorge Victor QuiƱones Borda sent me a recent “uneventful” drawn BDG. Then Jorge added “We could really need two to tango.” Later Quinones sent a more remarkable correspondence game in the English Opening with this comment: "Hello dear Rev. Tim Sawyer, I finished this game. This one could be more interesting to look at. Greetings, Jorge"

His game features the advance of the White king to ensure the success of his kingside assault. It turns out to be calculated accurately. Black will have to give up material to stop the mate.
