About JeanTylerGabriel

"Chess is eminently and emphatically the philosopher's game."
~Paul Morphy

Presenting... the "Mad Hatter" of chess 🧐

"When you are lonely.  When you feel yourself an alien in the world.  Play chess.  This will raise your spirits and be your counselor in war."
~Aristotle

“To know ten thousand things, know one well.”
“The important thing in strategy is to suppress the enemy's useful actions but allow his useless actions.”
“To become the enemy, see yourself as the enemy of the enemy.”
~Miyamoto Musashi "A Book of Five Rings: The Classic Guide to Strategy"

The player who controls the developmental tempo controls the game.

I respect & admire players who do not resign or accept/offer a draw. As they are aware of the simple fact that prior to the checkmate, an opponent can make a mistake; be that blundering away a piece, losing on time, or falling victim to a stalemate/draw.

"Some things may only be learned from sacrifice."
~Kreia

The aesthetically elegant game wins most gracefully and often.

The Evans Gambit is by far the greatest opening that white can play. Should black accept the gambit, white gains tempo; in the event that black declines the gambit, white gains tempo. When white, the side that already begins the game with tempo gains tempo over black in the opening, there really isn't anything white can do BUT win?... (Lasker was clever enough to discover an effective counter; the eponymous, "Lasker Attack"😉

Chess is simple; Life is hard.

"In chess, as it is played by masters, chance is practically eliminated."

"The hardest thing in chess is to win a won game."
