Episode 378: Sämisch versus Nimzowitsch

<<FIRST     <PREVIOUS     NEXT>     LATEST>>

Never leave your back undefended. Basic rule of combat.

Of course this means you can easily back yourself into a corner. Figuratively, if not also literally.

This is why it's better to have your back protected by something that can both (a) keep you safe and (b) get easily trampled under your feet if you have to turn tail and run.

And thus: thieves were invented.
