I am a patzer who is here to learn. I guess that's about all I have to say about myself.

   Oct-03-13 G Garcia vs K Darga, 1963 (replies)
 
Cannon Fodder: Good puzzle. I missed it because I failed to look beyond 37...Kd7 and see that the a pawn and the e pawn prevent the king's escape.
 
   Sep-18-13 Anand vs F Izeta Txabarri, 1993 (replies)
 
Cannon Fodder: Glad I'm not the only one who missed it.
 
   Aug-31-13 Tal vs Short, 1987
 
Cannon Fodder: Tal was on a higher level. I like listening to Marvin Gaye and George Strait when I play through these games.
 
   Jul-20-13 NN vs Lasker, 1907 (replies)
 
Cannon Fodder: Thank you for pointing that out, FSR. One needs to keep on top of the latest theory in sharp lines like this.
 
   Jul-20-13 Cochrane vs Mohishunder, 1855
 
Cannon Fodder: And I thought ...Na6 was a modern move.
 
   Feb-02-10 L Dominguez vs Morozevich, 2009 (replies)
 
Cannon Fodder: Hardest Tuesday I've seen in a while. I went straight for 35 Rb8+.

Cannon Fodder: According to CG's bio of George Atwood, 47 of Philidor's games were published in the 1820's from notation taken by Atwood. Do any of the chess historians out there know where these games can be found?
 
   May-01-07 Teichmann vs NN, 1914 (replies)
 
Cannon Fodder: When will people learn to stopping accepting wooden horses as gifts?
 
   Apr-30-07 Portisch vs Spassky, 2007 (replies)
 
Cannon Fodder: Every decade or so he makes a move like this: Spassky vs Karpov, 1988 Still, when you consider all the brilliant chess the man has given the world, these blunders are no more than an amusing footnote. Spassky will always be my hero.
