No other board game I know is so adaptable for the pandemic blues than the game of chess. It engages the mind and occupies time is such a way that hours upon hours fly by during a highly contested chess game, regardless of rank.

I won my first chess tournament during a weekend game at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee while all the big players were there. Among master and junior masters, I was an intermediate player using the strategy called the Caro Kann.

Consisting of 32 pieces of the game of chess involves two competitors whose goal is to checkmate each other’s king. The first one that does this is the winner. However, a game can also end in a stalemate or draw.

Elements of Chess

A thorough knowledge of the elements of chess will go a long way in helping a player to become pretty darn good if not better. A masterful knowledge of each elements is the secret of the masters and their dominance in the chess world.

  • Pawn
  • Knight
  • Bishop
  • Rook
  • Queen
  • King

From the least to the greatest, each chess piece has its unique moves and value points. The pawn is less valuable than all the other pieces. However, a group of pawns skillfully played (Endgame) by a master can wreak havoc on an opponent who does not respect their value.

 

Pawns move one step, straight ahead but can attack diagonally to the left or right. If a pawn makes it across the board to the other side, it can be promoted to whatever piece (except the King) necessary to help win the game.

Knights are the terror of the chess board. It can appear seemingly out of know where to the unexpecting opponent and destroy all sense of hope in check matting the king.

Knights move in a letter L shape across the board, both in all directions.

The Bishop whose moves resemble that of a sharp shooting moves in diagonal style. That is why it can wreck considerable damage against an opponent’s strategy.

The Rooks are the end pieces positioned on the last row at each end of the chess board. The rooks can move up or down, backward, or forward across the board, not diagonal. Rooks are usually switched on the other side of the king to protect him. This is called castling. The goal is to protect the king from the attack of your opponent.

The almighty Queen, a chess piece that has no boundaries when it comes to moving across the board to attack her opponent. She can move in all directions. Hail to the Queen!

The King piece, the ultimate boss, and the foundation of the game is what all the fuss is about. The aim is to checkmate him or to render its movement or escape impossible. Once an opponent has achieved this, the game is over.

Of the 32 chess pieces, 16 are black and 16 are white. An opponent can choose either the black or white side of the board.

The Chess Board

The chess board consists of 64 squares. In the beginning of the game, on either side of the board, an opponent’s chess pieces occupy 16 squares. The other 32 squares are empty, waiting to be conquered by the aggressor.

The Tournament

Chess players of all ranks often come together in a tournament. Players of the same rank are usually matched against one another. Master against masters, intermediate players against intermediate players and beginners against beginners.

The greatest American tournament players was Bobby Fischer, who became of the be the best players in the world for a period. He legacy will always be a part of American triumph in the game of chess.

The Importance of Strategy

To effectively play the game of chess, a player needs a strategy, a was of systematically getting to an opponent’s king for a checkmate. Without a chess strategy, a player will experience sudden defeat every time, and without mercy.

Strategy determines the opening moves on each side of the board. Mastering one or two of these strategies will go a long way in helping your master the game of chess.

  • Caro-Kann Defense
  • Sicilian Defense
  • Pirc Defense
  • English Opening
  • Bird’s Opening
  • King’s Indian Attack
  • Modern Defense
  • Scotch Game
  • Vienna Gam
  • Ruy Lopez
  • London System
  • French Defense
  • Four Knight’s Game

Studying the game of chess is rewarding. But I did not have this opinion when I first became aware of the game. I thought it was quite boring. “What a boring game, “I thought, as I observed players engaged in games at various locations across the college campus.

My interest in playing the game did not come until I was beating time and time again by a young lady friend who rub her achievements in my face before male friends.

As a result of my defeat, I was determined to get serious about the game. I was tired of getting beat by all my opponents.

My first book, The Invitation to Chess, was the golden nugget that propelled by authority into the chess world. The book is certainly for beginners and intermediate alike. It gave me a sound understanding of the game and how it should be played.

When I returned for vengeance, I left no one standing. Astonished, they all did not know what had hit them until defeat was certain, time and time again. Thanks to the “The Invitation to Chess”, a book I recommend to all those who are interested in learning the game of chess.

 

Paperback An Invitation to Chess: A Picture Guide to the Royal Game Book

McDonaldization, a ‘restaurant model of production, work, and consumption’, has influenced the growth and expansion modern day businesses and organizations.  The term was developed in 1993 by George Ritzer, the author of McDonaldization of Society.

Built on the principles of predictability, calculability, efficiency, and control, the concept of McDonaldization has been embraced by businesses in several unique ways. For example, you can see its influence at every turn.

In society we have drive up windows, salad bars, buffets, self-serving gasoline lines, automated cashiers’ line in grocery stores, ATM, Microwave food, giant supermarkets, online shopping, voice mails and audio conferences etc.

McDonaldization is the death of our traditional ways of running society. No longer do we have to wait in long lines to buy food, or cash checks. No longer do we have to make time to prepare food straight from the farm or garden when we can grab processed and microwavable dinners. No longer do we have to travel long distances support our livelihoods.

The time it took to perform traditional practices has been drastically reduced by the McDonaldization mentality.

The way we live our lives has become fast and predicable.

The experience of McDonaldization appears to bring satisfaction to consumers all over the world, including:

  • Speed
  • Convenience
  • Product Reliability
  • Reduced Effort and Cost
  • Productivity

One can assume that such mentality offers an improved quality of life. However, rapidity of service can come with inferior quality. Examples are fast food restaurants themselves. The quality of food can result in all types of healthy issues due to high level calory intake.

Nevertheless, Businesses pursue the McDonaldization model for the value it creates, including smooth operations, rapid growth, increase of customer base, and to supersede competition. Customers look for easy access and availability.

McDonaldization may be a solution to your business. If you are still doing things the long traditional way, the way that allow the competition to dominant, you might do well to take advantage of what others are doing to satisfy customers.

For example, if you own a new restaurant, why not open a buffet or a salad bar, or some other idea that speed up customer service. The goal is to make it as convenience, accessible, and available to customers as possible.

If you really want to apply the concept of McDonaldization, read George Ritzer’s’ “McDonaldization of Society.” Study your target audience and how you can apply this concept to your business. In today’ society, the business model of McDonaldization is the way to go.
