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.

Castleinthesky: Smothered Mate!
   Dec-09-16 Aronian vs Adams, 2016 (replies)
Castleinthesky: It looks like 26...Qa2 is the killer for black, the consequences of grabbing the pawn is the decentralization of the queen, which gives white a big advantage.

Castleinthesky: The trick of this puzzle is that it is not a puzzle, but really a demonstration of a fundamental chess principle: if you are up in material, trade down. Here it is no more complicated than realizing White is up a pawn and if the rook and bishop are traded then there is a ...

Castleinthesky: Got the move, but did not figure out the full mate.

Castleinthesky: Nepo's last name is the one I'd most like to have at a graduation ceremony.

Castleinthesky: Got it! The movement of the pawns was initially distracting, but once I recognized Black's mate threat, the solution quickly followed.
   Jun-07-16 Korchnoi vs Udovcic, 1967 (replies)
Castleinthesky: A great game from the greatest French player of all-time. Devastating logic.
