Hi, I'm a "Murkan sizzan" residing in Costa Rica, home of the unforgettable GM???....well, we made it to the soccer World Cup a few years ago anyway... I don't have the nerves, patience, time or sitzfleisch to play in tournaments, but I really love the game and find it a wonderful diversion from that other great vice: work! Full Member

   ChessHigherCat has kibitzed 1035 times to chessgames   [more...]
   May-23-17 Kramnik - Topalov World Championship Match (2006)
ChessHigherCat: <Absentee: <ChessHigherCat> You got it all so ass-backwards it's not even funny. For the love of sweet baby Jesus, stick to chess.> My love of sweet baby Jesus is no greater than my respect for your "intelligence", you pompous moron. "Absentee" is the perfect ...
   May-23-17 B Savchenko vs A Kostin, 2007 (replies)
ChessHigherCat: I couldn't find anything better than 26. Rxf6 (if Nxf6 27. Rxf7 Bxf7 28. Qxf7#) If 26...Qb1+ 27. Kh2 and if Qxf6 then 28. Nh7+ Rxh7 29. Qxf6. Anyway, now that I look through the other kibbitzes, <Phony Benoni> got it. Probably the hardest Tuesday puzzle ever.
   May-22-17 Fischer vs Gheorghiu, 1970 (replies)
ChessHigherCat: <Jimmy720: This is my analysis of this game. Any constructive criticism is welcome.> I think it's very good. I didn't understand why black played 24...Qf8 until you pointed out that f6 would be even worse (especially after 24. Na4, you might add). You must have added ...
   May-22-17 Timman vs Beliavsky, 1984
ChessHigherCat: 40. Bh7+??? Kxh7 41. Qxa2 Qxf3 and white has to sac the Q for the N on f2
   May-22-17 NN vs Blackburne, 1880
ChessHigherCat: White was singing "Carry me home from Old Kentucky"
   May-22-17 Rubinstein vs C C Brooks, 1925
ChessHigherCat: It seems like almost anything would have saved the bishop: 26. f4 Kh7 27. B3; 26. g4 Kh7 27. g5; even 26. e5 Kh7 27. exf6 Bxf3 28. Bxg4 Bxg4 29. Rxg4. That said it, it was a simultaneous so he has the right to an occasional blunder.
   May-22-17 Ilyin-Zhenevsky vs F Bohatirchuk, 1924
ChessHigherCat: <Granny O Doul> True (I assume, without knowing German), CHC, but Terry Britten and Graham Lyle made the same error of usage in "What's Love Got to Do with It?"> Aha, that's why I never understood what they meant by "What's love but a second-hand emotion?. I thought ...
   May-22-17 A Khudaya vs Yifan Hou, 2007 (replies)
ChessHigherCat: I saw 22... Nxf3+ right away, followed by 23 Rxf3 or Kg3/h3 and 24, Qxf3#. The trickiest variant was 23. Kxh5 where I missed the mate in 1 (Qf2#) but found a mate in 23: ...g3+ 24 Kxg3 or Kh3 Qh7#. A lot of possible variants for a Monday/Munday/Moonday
   May-21-17 Gelfand vs Ding Liren, 2017 (replies)
ChessHigherCat: Maybe he overlooked the possibility of Bc7 which blocks everything. Otherwise the pawn push c7 (threatening Qxa8) followed by Rd8 would have been very strong. As to Gelfland's eraticism at 48, Mae West was still eratic into her 80s!
   May-21-17 Kholmov vs Taimanov, 1969
ChessHigherCat: <Fusilli> <CHC Yes, but black moves too :) Because that plan would take forever, black has plenty of choices to get comfortable, dynamic piece play.> That's true, I was going to add "five moves is the minimum if black cooperates and white would probably get mated ...
