In this contribution (originally published in 1894) to the literature of chess the authors have attempted to present the elements of a new theory of play. They have confined themselves, in the main, to the exposition of that part of the system which governs the opening of a game; by suggestion, however, if not by definite statement, they hope to have laid before the reader at least the spirit of the complete theory.Leibnitz pronounced chess an exact science, Petroff placed it on a level with the integral calculus, and the great Anderssen declared that its intricacies were more abstruse than the most profound mathematics; the authors of the new theory, agreeing with this trio of distinguished scholars, are tempted to go still further, and to assert, even at the peril of being considered somewhat visionary, not only that chess is a real science, but that it may not unreasonably be regarded as symbolical of the supreme science, the science of force. If this be true, the study of chess may profitably engage the attention of the ablest intellects. Those persons who make light of the wooden puppets that run over the surface of the chess board should recollect that a frame of wires strung with wooden balls was the familiar companion of the earlier mathematicians, that the science of logarithms was perfected by means of wooden pegs and a board pierced with holes, and that Napoleon won his victories before his battles were fought, by sticking his map of Europe full of pins surmounted by divers colored balls of sealing-wax.

Emil Kemeny appeared on the American chess scene in 1890, a Hungarian chess player on the Lower East Side who had difficulty with English. Within a decade he was considered one of the country's finest chess players and writers. He dominated chess in both Philadelphia and Chicago, where he lived between 1893 and early 1906. Congenial and modest, Kemeny was appreciated for his chess play and valued for the strong friendships he formed during his years in the United States. A tenacious competitor despite poor health, he fought Showalter for the national title, ran his own chess magazine, and provided detailed coverage of Monte Carlo 1903. His chess career as player and writer is presented in detail. Common databases rarely include more than 35 of his games; this book has 227--sixty or more against Halpern, Hanham, Voigt, Showalter and Pillsbury--most with annotations; 361 diagrams. Forty additional period games, hundreds of source notes, tournament and match records, crosstables, a bibliography, and openings, player, and general indexes complete the work.

WINNING FAST IS FUN! This book is a collection of games played by the best players in the world in which either White or Black wins in 15 moves or less either a result of brilliant chess tactics, an accumulation of mistakes or blunders. Through the study of the games in this volume, you will improve your: Opening play Opening repertoire Tactical vision Tactical ability.The chess opening variations in this volume are all the variations of the 1.e4 e5 such as: 1) Scotch Game 2) Italian Game & Evans Gambit 3) Two Knights 4) Ruy Lopez 5) Three & Four Knights 6) King's Gambit 7) The Petroff 8) Philidor & Minor Defenses 9) Various Gambits Short games in chess have always fascinated me; what is it that is causing a player to go so wrong that he or she loses within 15 moves (or 25 moves as in my Chess Miniatures Series)?The games in this book illustrate the making of and punishment of a lot of typical mistakes: Loose pawns & pieces Not calculating far enough Over-burdened pieces Overlooked intermediary moves Misevaluations Not sensing danger And much more of that kind But the games also include a surprising amount of tactics (see the front cover - White to move), sometimes even missed tactical opportunities. I have chosen only from games of players that were rated 2350 and above (or would have rated as such, but it was before the rating system was put in place), because I felt that if mistakes like these can be played by such strong players, then there are lessons to be learned for the majority of the rest us. Further, I sorted away the worst games, such as when one side a piece is threatened and the other side forgets to move a threatened piece, even that happens among strong players. Through the study of the games in this book should help you avoid a lot of mistakes in your own games, help you to take advantage of the mistakes of your opponents and ultimately sharpen your tactics and tactical awareness by answering the prompts to the diagrammed positions. Enjoy!
