SPRAGGETT ON CHESS
POSITION AFTER 26 MOVES
Lasker and Steinitz taught that combinations can only exist if based on some sort of positional advantage(s). Well, here White has a lot going for him:
HOW DOES WHITE CONVERT THIS? WHITE TO PLAY AND WIN!
Emanuel Lasker (1868-1941)
”Believe in the existence of that combination and seek to discover it. And if you have searched in vain a hundred times, continue. Possibly the advantage that you think you hold is only an illusion; your valuations may be at fault: prove them and improve them. But, first of all, search diligently; work, for such work is rewarded.” (Manual, p 215)
”I want to train pupils to think for themselves and exercise just criticism. I will not teach them mere formulae, mere generalities, but will instil into them lasting principles that will grow and blossom; which are alive and vital. They must be ready and willing to put their conceptions , laws and valuations to the proof, again and again, diligently and cheerfully, from a sheer joy of the law and from veneration of the fact.” (Manual, p 237)
