Garry Kasparov and Lajos Portisch produced one of the greatest games of chess from their round 4 encounter at the Niksic Tournament in 1983. This is one of the best chess games in large part for its combination of a double bishop sacrifice, and king walk. Garry Kasparov is, for a very large number of chess enthusiasts, the best chess player of all time. Only about 2 years after the featured game, Kasparov would become the best chess player in the world, winning the World Chess Championship title in 1985. Kasparov would remain among the best chess players in the world for approximately 20 years, retiring in 2005. The Niksic Tournament of 1983 included 13 other players, namely Bent Larsen, Boris Spassky, Anthony Miles, Ulf Andersson, Mikhail Tal, Jan Timman, Yasser Seirawan, Ljubomir Ljubojevic, Svetozar Gligoric, Tigran Vartanovich Petrosian, Predrag Nikolic, Gyula Sax, and Bozidar Ivanovic. One interesting note about Niksic 1983 was that tournament organizers attempted to get Bobby Fischer to compete, but found Fischer's demand of $30,000 too high. PGN: 1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 e6 3. Nf3 b6 4.

This video demonstrates how to checkmate with the bishop and knight. After some experimentation with solving the bishop and knight checkmate, I found that the first step of simply centralizing ones pieces on the four center squares, with the knight on the same color square as the bishop, is an efficient coordination of the pieces. The knight from such a position is then very quick to becoming optimized in what follows of the Deletang's Triangles, where the king is forced into a large triangle, a medium triangle, and then a small triangle. Once the king is in the small triangle and restricted to exactly two squares, we give checkmate. Practice makes perfect! ★ FACEBOOK http://facebook.com/ChessNetwork ★ TWITTER http://twitter.com/ChessNetwork ★ GOOGLE+ http://google.com/+ChessNetwork ★ LIVESTREAM http://twitch.tv/ChessNetwork Internet Chess Club (ICC) http://chessclub.com
