Alex Schindler
Member since Nov-18-14 · Last seen Mar-07-17
Brooklyn born and raised, though I'll probably be living in Washington Heights by the time someone's reading this.

Nyu law student, hopefully joining the Marshall club for summer 2015, joining the uscf and actually getting a tournament rating. If I had to estimate where I'll fall, I'd say ~1800 based on my chess.com games and the informal ones I play at Washington Square Park.

Here to learn from the keen analysts I've seen in the kibitz section, and the great masters whose games are preserved for posterity. A big fan of the guess the move resource as well

Favorite players are tal, nezhmetdinov,Fischer, bronstein, polgar, kasparov, Anand, Carlsen, Lasker, morphy, Pillsbury... Well, for the most part that tells you what I'm into.

I admire the karpovs and petrosians of the world and wish I had more of a feel for positional and prophylactic play, but at this early stage of my development aggression and tactics are where I find the most pleasure.

   Mar-07-17 Caruana vs Nakamura, 2016 (replies)
 
Alex Schindler: Can someone explain why 25 h5 instead of going ahead with Be3? Haven't analyzed with computer, but I'm having trouble seeing what it addresses. Nor do I see the point of black's response qg5+, simply inviting the bishop where it wants to go and threatening nothing in ...
 
   Mar-07-17 B Ider vs Yifan Hou, 2017
 
Alex Schindler: Unbelievable over the board calculation. (Or intuition, considering how deep some of the lines go at a material disadvantage?) That f3 bishop is more of a pope, dominating the board like some divine emissary. The sacrifice of a queen for two minor pieces and an amazing ...
 
   Nov-01-16 Tal vs Karpov, 1987
 
Alex Schindler: I also wonder about 15 Qb3 instead of Qe2, but that would have made for a very different game, and I guess Tal had his sights set on the kingside from move 1.

Alex Schindler: how is this bio so understated? He may be one of the best five players of all time, and one of the most influential.
 
   Feb-05-16 Tal vs Botvinnik, 1960 (replies)
 
Alex Schindler: Oh , from the end of Zydeco's comment. nevermind
 
   Feb-04-16 Yifan Hou vs Navara, 2016
 
Alex Schindler: I think Navara's ...a5 was a poor response to her c4 novelty. What did it achieve? An unnecessary weakness or two. Hou's brilliant rook penetration from the sixth rank owes itself to that move and its fruits. Interesting is analyzing the natural response dxc4. It looks very ...

Alex Schindler: "necrolizing zombiform tourette's." hahahahha
 
   Feb-03-16 Ponomariov vs Fritz, 2005
 
Alex Schindler: Seems like you had no need to speak of hardware given your observation about software, Kinghunt. If you already have Komodo's Elo (which now exceeds 3300), you don't even really need to know what changes in hardware have given rise to part of that estimate to come to a ...
 
   Nov-25-15 Hebden vs J M Pichon, 1990
 
Alex Schindler: Gorgeous ending
 
   Nov-25-15 Bronstein vs Geller, 1961 (replies)
 
Alex Schindler: that knockout punch deserves a gold coin shower, if Marshall's did.
