    Using the most seasoned tonewoods and unique construction technique, the MR-550 Pure Harp is the result of Suzuki's research and development of unique professional grade harmonicas. Rosewood has been sought after by top musicians from all over the globe, from classical guitar players to top violinists. This wood allows unique tonal qualities and when used in harmonica construction, gives a warmer tone. Using Rosewood can produce a high velocity of sound and a broad range of mid and low overtones. These 'lows' help to create a complex bottom end which imparts a richness to the overall tone of the harmonica.The redesigned reeds, which are the heart of this Suzuki harmonica, have been produced with the advanced player in mind. However, this reed design makes it easier to play the harp chromatically, right out of the box! The Suzuki Reed plates allow ease of play, especially with overblow and overdraw techniques.

    Informational resources for our visitors

    Here is some information about chess. To find a list of more information resources, please go to play to this page


    The rules of the chess game

    A chess board has 64 squares arranged in 8 rows and 8 culomns. They are alternately white and black or other colors with the same symbolic value. The square in each corner on the left is always dark, because the squares being alternately dark and light, determines the color of all the squares.

    The players sit facing each other on either side. Each player has 16 pieces. The pieces are moved according to specific rules for each type of piece.

    It is customary that the player having the light pieces begin the game and move the first piece. Each  player moves one piece at a time.

    A player can move a piece into the same square as one of his opponent's pieces, if the opponent's piece is in the allowed path of the first player's piece. Then the player takes the opponet's piece out of the chessboard and the game. This act is called to strike the opponent's piece.

    The whole purpose of the game is to knock out the opponent's king by moving a piece into the square where the king is.


    The pieces and their line-up before the game

    Before the game rach opponents poses the pieces in the two rows closest to each side.

    The light pieces are arranged as follows in the innermost row from left to right before the opening of the game:
    Rook - knight (horse) - bishop  - Queen - king- bishop - Knight (horse) - towers.

    The dark pieces are arranged as follows in the innermost row from left to right before beginning: Rook - knight (horse) - bishop - King - Queen - bishop - Knight - rook.

    This arrangement ensures that the queen and king always stand opposite each other, the white king comes on a black field and the black king is on a white field.

    In the next row each player places only pawns, of which each player has 8.


    How do the pieces go and turn

    Most of the pieces, but the knight cannot jump over the opponent's pieces, but move only along a free path. If an opponent's piece is in the allowed way of the player's piece, the player can move his piece into the square of the opponents piece and strike that piece out of the game. The player must then set his piece in that square.

    The pawns move one step right foreawrd every time, but the first time a pawn is moved, it can be moved two steps. The pawns move just straight forward, and never return. A pawn knocks out another piece at a queer angle, not straight forward. If a pawn has been moved two steps the first time, and not been moved once more, it can however knock out another piece streight to left or right the first time.

    The rook moves as many steps as the player wants foreward, backward, right or left.

    The knight moves on each time one step stright (foreward, backward, left or right) and one step diagonally or one step diagonally and one step stright. It can jump over a piece of the other player.

    The bishops can move diagonnally so many steps as one whishes in a free path.

    The queen is the game's most powerful piece. It can move as many steps one whishes forward, backward,  left, right and diagonally
    The King can move one step at a time forward, backward,  left, right and diagonally.

    Certain special moves

    If there are no pieces between the rook and the king, and neither the king or rook has been moved before, one can moove the rook two steps in the direction of the king and the king to the other side of the rook in one draw.This is called castling. Castling is used to reallocate the positions of strategic considerations.

    The end of the play

    The game is won when a player knocks out the king of the opponent.

    If a king is in a position to be knocked out by the opponent player, the owner of the king and his king are said to be "in chess". It is common courtesy to make the opponent aware of this by saying "chess", but one is not obliged to do so. The player who is in chess must then try to save away the king.

    If the king is in chess and cannot move anywhere without still being in chess, the player and his king are said to be "chess stelmate". Then the king can be  knocked out in the next move, and the player knocking out the king has won.

    Theoretically, a player has not lost before the king is knocked out. If a player puts the opponent in chess or even chess stelmate without understanding it, the game can continue, and then  his opponent can still win, but this happens very seldom.

    If a player's king is in not in chess but cannot move it anywhere without getting in chess, and he does not have any other pieces to move, the game is said to be draw and neither of the players have won. A game ending in draw is called remis.

    If a player has lost most of the  pieces, and is in an impossible situation to win, he may still try to manipulate the play into a drawn position and obtain remis.

    If both players have lost so many pieces that it is practically impossible to make the opponent chess stelmate, there will also be a remis.


    How Can You Become a Better Chess Player
    Here are some simple tricks you can use to increase the probability of winning a game of chess.

    How to start a game of chess
    The purpose of the initial game is to give officers afree path to move and strike as early as possible, but avoid creating openings that your opponent can could threaten your king through.

    When it comes to launching a game of chess, it pays to start with moving the rawns in front of the rooks and knights on the left side, and then engage the bishop and knight on this side. Then it pays to move the queen to the left so that it is ready to come out through the openings created.

    It then often gives an advantage to move the tawn before the king or the tawn before the knight on the rigt side one step foreward. Then the bishop at that side have on opportunity to move foreward. After these initial mooves, it is often wise to move the knights out.

    When the opponent has moved a piece.
    When the opponent has moved a piece, it pays to make a somewhat boring but very useful sequence of investigations. Only when you have done this, consider what your next move shall be.

    - You must always see if the opponent's piece on the new place could threaten some of your pieces.

    - You should always check to see if any of your pieces can trap your opponent's piece in the new location.

    - You should check to see if your opponent's moves have uncovered other pieces close to the old place that can threaten some of your pieces.

    - You should also watch for the opponent's moves have uncovered some pieces close to the old place that you can .
    - You should then think further on which opportunities further ahead that the opponet har created for himself by his move.

    - And you should think about what opportunities you have got by the last move of the opponent.

    Before you even move a piece, even
    It's your turn to pull, and you've just found on a smart moves. Before you actually make the move, you should always make certain routine reviews:

    - Are any of your pieces threatened where they stand now

    - Foes the planned moveopen up the threat to some of your own pieces?

    - Will the piece threatened in the new place you move it to.


    Destroy your opponent's plan

    Midway through the game, it is often wise to make some strategic moves that destroy the opponent's plan. Here are some moves that can do this:

    - You can make a castling. Thus your opponent must often totally relocate his positions to threaten your king.

    -You can move up a tower one or two rows. The tower will protect an entire row that the opponent was going to use as a starting point for an attack.

    - Move a tower up to the king. The tower will now protect the king against the pieces that can come in and directly threaten the king.

    Move a tawn near the king a step forward. Now it becomes harder to take a pawn in the row immediately in front of the king and then threateb the king.


    Surprise your opponent

    If you have an opponent that you often play with, he knows how often you play on. You may want to vary your playing style. Thereby thwarting the strategy that your opponent. Element of surprise may in some cases be more useful that moves that are more intelligent in a stright way.


    Crash into the opponent's ranks

    Sometimes it is useful just to crash into the opponents rank with one or more pieces. To do so, the first piece you use to run in with, must be protected by another of yours pieces. If the first piece is taken, the piece used to take it with will then be taken in your next move. Then you can often run foreward with a third piece an threaten your opponent through the holes you have made in his defence.
