I currently live in Connecticut and am around a "C" class player, depending upon who kibitzes during the game. I enjoy 5-Minute on the ICC and am always open to a live game. My favorite players are: Spielmann, Tal, Judit Polgar (See her 2008 Corus win agianst Boris Gelfand),and Nezhmetdinov. Who cares about material, it only clogs up the board!

Castleinthesky: I laughed at this comment of yours, too true: Karpov vs. Van Der Wiel "van der Wiel lost because he chose too many of the same moves I would have chosen."
   Oct-02-18 Chukaev vs Tal, 1956
Castleinthesky: To see regaining the bishop after the sac is amazing. Go Tal!!!
   Sep-27-18 John Fedorowicz
Castleinthesky: I had the honor of losing to John Fedeorwicz, at a Chess In the Schools benefit in New York City. He is a great guy.
   Sep-25-18 W So vs Roberto Sanchez Alvarez, 2018 (replies)
Castleinthesky: It looks like Sanchez was way overmatched.
   Sep-20-18 T Chapman vs Kasparov, 2001 (replies)
Castleinthesky: Two rook pawns are a very iffy gift. As the saying goes: "rooks love open files!".
   Sep-19-18 De Legal vs Saint Brie, 1750 (replies)
Castleinthesky: "Brie's Cheese Gets Cut"
   Sep-14-18 Kmoch vs Znosko-Borovsky, 1926 (replies)
Castleinthesky: Here is my favorite Znosko-Borovsky ("ZB") story. ZB one time told Capablanca that he was composing a book of analysis based upon Capablanca's worst games. Capablanca replied that he wanted to write a book about ZB's best games, but couldn't find any.
   Aug-26-18 Vukcevich vs Bisguier, 1979
Castleinthesky: Black should have resigned at move 25. Not much of a GOTD, many blunders and little brilliance.
   Jul-17-18 Kasparov vs Superstar 36K, 1985
Castleinthesky: At least a gig against Kasparov.
   Jul-16-18 Matulovic vs G Del Pezzo, 1954 (replies)
Castleinthesky: Not a great game, Black made a fundamental opening blunder when he failed to respond to Bf4 with e6. Also fianchettos aren't so good for Black in the Smith-Morra. I prefer a Schvenigan formation.
