Des infos sur moi:

j'étais parti pendant 2 ans pour faire une mission bénévole à plein temps en France, et maintenant je suis revenu! Je vis aux états-unis, et je joue aux échecs depuis...un bon moment. J'ai 21 ans, et j'étais le champion (lycéen) de mon état en 2008

I'm 22, live in the U.S. and play chess (not particularly well) since I was a kid. My rating's been into the 1800...but it isn't anymore. I was High School chess champion of my state and played in the Arnold Denker Tournament of Champions in 2008. I left for two years to do a full time volunteer mission for my Church.

   Dec-22-12 H Taylour vs E Cummings, 1908
 
Brettwith2ts: 15)...♔xg7 --You haven't beaten me, you've sacrificed your footing for a killing blow. 32)...♘e2+ *Liam Neeson breaks the ice and batman falls into the frozen lake below*
 
   Nov-09-12 Marshall vs Tartakower, 1929
 
Brettwith2ts: How to draw: 1) Remove or minimize all imbalances. 2) Only accept trades that leave things equal. 3) *Always* accept trades that leave things equal. 4) Leave all rooks on the board--If any of them go off, one of you might have a chance to win! 5) Play the Caro-Kann. :P
 
   Aug-21-12 Vaisser vs S Maze, 2012
 
Brettwith2ts: Starting on move 10, I liked this position and thought it looked super interesting. Lots of competing imbalances, several aggressive plans for either side to try, and so on. But, once the captures and recaptures were done, they sure managed to kill the interest pretty quickly. ...
 
   Aug-21-12 Fressinet vs C Bauer, 2012 (replies)
 
Brettwith2ts: When I first saw 48. ♗e2, my immediate reaction was "woops! Did he not realize that hangs a pawn with check?" Now that I'm taking more time to look at it, though, I realize that white was in a wretched state to begin with. Black's pawns are on squares where White's bishop
 
   Aug-21-12 Dreev vs Sakaev, 2009
 
Brettwith2ts: Finely played opening, no blunders or mistakes of any kind on either side, the draw seems legitimate to me. ...
 
   Dec-28-11 N Sulava vs T Luciani, 2011
 
Brettwith2ts: I feel like black let himself be lead around by the nose. I know, it's easier said than done, especially against a player several hundred rating points stronger, but black spent the whole game responding to whatever white did, without even making an effort to start up his own ...
 
   Dec-28-11 Z Angelov vs Fressinet, 2011
 
Brettwith2ts: Standard play against a lower rated player; solid positioning and maneuvering, then taking advantage of the tactical (21. a5?) and positional (the weak K-side after 24. gxf4) opportunities to safely claim the full point.
 
   Dec-27-11 Zukertort / Hoffer vs J Minckwitz, 1869
 
Brettwith2ts: 34...Qe4?? Throws away a pretty significant advantage, giving away a pawn and a bishop for virtually no compensation, but the comedy of errors started with 27. Rh3? doesn't actually end until 36...Qe1+??. Defending the d2 pawn by Qxf4! should win: with the rook more or less ...

Brettwith2ts: <polarmis> Thanks! Yeah, campus makes sense now that I think about it, I was trying to think of convention centers or big hotels, and I was drawing a blank.
 
   Aug-22-11 J P Le Roux vs H Hamdouchi, 2011
 
Brettwith2ts: 13...Nb6! Black maneuvers to take advantage of the blockade square on d5, left by the pawn trade on e4. It seems like that trade should have been avoided, or if nothing else, white should have at least tried to keep the N off of d5, and once it's there, he goes down a pawn in
