Alex Schindler
Member since Nov-18-14 · Last seen May-06-19
Brooklyn born and raised.

Trusts & estates lawyer, ratingless and probably won't have time to get a tournament rating til I retire. If I had to estimate where I'd fall, I'd say ~1900 based on my games and the informal ones I used to play at Washington Square Park.

Here to learn from 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, Kupreichik, Gulko, Bronstein, Polgar, Kasparov, Morphy, Pillsbury... Well, for the most part that tells you what I'm into. Full Member

Alex Schindler: Someone should add his game against vuppala praneeth, it features the classic Lasker double bishop sac. Like a Greek gift in a Greek gift. Nested Russian Trojan horse doll?

Alex Schindler: Kid is going places

Alex Schindler: Wordfunph, thank you for that excerpt! Very entertaining.

Alex Schindler: I come back to this page a few times a year. Each time, I wonder if this time I will see the sacrifice and think "yes, the compensation seems adequate." Each time, I leave wondering how this game was played by human beings.
   Dec-25-18 G Rechlis vs Kupreichik, 1987
Alex Schindler: Found this beauty looking to solve the Grr! Holiday puzzle.
   Dec-23-18 Gufeld vs Razuvaev, 1989
Alex Schindler: Possible solution to Grr! puzzle?
   Dec-23-18 I Salgado Lopez vs D Debashis, 2014 (replies)
Alex Schindler: Don't know what is "insane" about this puzzle. There is only one reasonable way to sac a queen in the position, and there isn't really anything else exciting to try. And the logic of a queen sac here is quite intuitive given the terrible displacement of the other queen, and ...
   Dec-22-18 Maroczy vs Duchamp, 1930
Alex Schindler: In this game Maroczy is the artist, and Duchamp is the... er, fountain.
   Dec-01-18 Boris Gulko
Alex Schindler: Leave it to Nigel Short to have opinions on whether a perfectly standard religious practice in Gulko's community is "self-serving."
   Dec-01-18 Tal vs Kupreichik, 1970
Alex Schindler: My two favorite players! Kupreichik not at his best, clearly. Spassky did better with his dragon and Nh6 against the Maroczy...
