Chandler Cornered

Chess Set for Sale + The Three Brilliancies




The Chess Set.
A friend of mine and someone not unknown to most of you
has a large chess set and table for sale.

Here is another picture to give you some idea of the scale.



The King is 6 inches, the Board is 2 feet by 2 feet (none of your
silly metric nonsense here) and the sqaures are 3 inches by 3 inches.

He is asking for 90.00.
Email with your details and I will put you in touch with him.
He can arrange for a visit so you view the set and table.



The Three Masterpieces.

Been getting a lot of spam recently.
The most frequent being, someone who wants to enlarge a certain
part of my anatomy and some foreign Jonny needs my bank account number
to send me thousands of pounds.

But today I received 3 games!

"This is it." I thought to myself. "The Three Masterpieces."

I've waited for this since I started Chandler Cornered.
The day when three unknown games of pure brilliance would
grace this site. Games of such depth and magnitude that they
will be re-printed throughout the Chess World and everyone will say;

They saw them here first.

Three profound and intelligence games backed with such judgment
and conviction that they will rival any known jewel create by
such Masters as Capablanca, Rubenstein, Karpov and dare I say Morphy.

Books will be written about this fateful day.

"They first appeared on Chandler Cornered on the 23rd of February 2008.

The irrepressible Geoff Chandler, (they always call me irrepressible),
a strong amateur player, (I wrote that bit), suspected their brilliance but
he was not strong enough a player to see the full extent of the depth of ideas
behind the moves. (damn cheek).

Within hours of them appearing on Chandler Cornered the
three games appeared in Chess columns all over the World.

The books covering just the three games appeared weeks later.

To date there has been 117 books written in 20 different languages
including Polish, Hindu and Yak-Yak (there are only three known people
left on the planet who speak Yak-Yak)

NASA even built a space ship just to send the three games off into the
far reaches of the Universe so other life forms could see how
intelligent and ingenious the human race had become.

Ladies and Gentleman, Chess Players and Chess Playeress's.
I give you, and remember you saw them here first.
