The Right Move after 30 Years- Remembering Mr. Goldhirsch

Thanks to the work started by Fred Goldhirsch The Right Move Chess Foundation has served scholastic chess with FREE monthly chess tournaments since 1990. Fred died ten years ago on May 15. Thanks much, Fred, for your vision and perseverance.

Your spirit continues and will keep going after this latest interruption of COVID-19…

GOLDHIRSCH–Fred P., died on May 15, 2010 in New York City. He is survived by his soul mate Nobuko Mogi, his sons Bob and Douglas, his daughters Susanna and Katherine, daughter-in-law Sharon, grandson Rafael, brother Henry and sister Trudy Schwartz. Born in Vienna, Austria, July 20, 1925, he came to America with his family in 1938. As soon as he was of age to volunteer, he joined the U.S. Army and served overseas in WWII. He later earned a civil engineering degree from CCNY where he was a star soccer player. He went into business as a builder, and over the next 50 years became a well-respected real estate developer in Queens and Staten Island. A long-time summer resident of Fire Island, Fred has a life-long love of tennis and was an avid skier and fierce chess player. He was a generous friend and an ardent supporter of many causes, among them the State of Israel. He was also the proud founder and for 20 years the primary financial supporter of The Right Move, the longest running free scholastic chess tournament program in New York City history. Donations in Fred’s memory can be made to: The Right Move, 1214 Beverley Road, Brooklyn, NY 11218

The Right Move Chess Rules

Arrival

1 Find the check-in area and wait in line to have your name checked in from the registration list so that you will be paired for Round 1.  Tell the name of the section you are in followed by your last name, first name. 

After you check-in find out where the pairings will be posted and the playing area for your section. Choose a suitable place to meet after you finish you game and leave the playing area.

2 The time of the start of each round is clearly posted.  The pairing chart showing your table number, color and opponent will be posted about 10 minutes prior to the start of each round.

3 If you have a clock you must start clocks promptly when round begins.  Clocks with incorrect settings may be corrected by the TD. Follow directions of TD when unsure.

4 If neither player has a clock you may borrow one, splitting elapsed time, or you may start without a clock. After 30/45 minutes if your opponent is late you may claim a win on time.

Time to begin play

5 In case of a problem/dispute, stop clock and raise hand or get a TD.

6 Touch Move Rule: You must move a piece if you touch it and can move it legally.  (In castling it is proper to touch the King first, but at The Right Move there is no penalty for touching the Rook first.) When capturing, promoting or castling, a player may use two hands.

7 All scoresheets should always be visible.

After you finish

8  As soon as your game ends raise your hand so that the result is recorded correctly. Then reset the pieces and leave the playing area.  Even “quiet talk”, whisper, blitz, etc. is disturbing and not allowed.

9 Players may not use cellphones or other electronic devices while playing without permission of a Director. Devices used to play music, which cannot operate software, will generally be allowed if the opponent does not object.

10 Bullying or any form of rude behavior is unacceptable and should be reported as soon as possible to Brother John.
