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

   Jan-17-19 I Nepomniachtchi vs Kramnik, 2019 (replies)
ChessHigherCat: And yet another alternative explanation is that Anand and Ivanchuk are geniuses and Kramnik is not, which is what I've always thought, ratings be damned.
   Jan-17-19 Seirawan vs J Nogueiras, 1987 (replies)
ChessHigherCat: Akh hakh, winning the rook isn't enough, you have to see 45. Rxc8 Rxc8 46. Nd8! Rxd8 47. c6 Rb8 48. b7 or the slightly more complicated game line.
   Jan-17-19 Korchnoi vs J Silver, 1977
ChessHigherCat: <Breunor> <Maybe Korchnoi fell apart then, because he should still be in it after Bf4, Stockfish shows two reasonable moves:> [...] <I would think Korchnoi is OK at -1.2 against a player rated under 1800!> Except that a 1800 player who was able to find ...
   Jan-16-19 Kenneth S Rogoff (replies)
ChessHigherCat: <cw to ocf> <I'm not big on diagnosing people only known in cyberspace, but In <TheKingfish>'s posts on this, he sounds like a borderline psychopath. And you "lean towards his position"??> You're half right: BigPawn is a complete psychopath, but the ...
   Jan-16-19 Carlsen vs Caruana, 2018
ChessHigherCat: <mckmac> What's the relevance of "whiskey"? They weren't even playing a Scotch :-) I thought 'Our Man in Havana' was hilarious, too, but if Greene wanted to imply that the reports of nuclear missiles hidden in the Cuban jungle might have been fabricated by a vacuum ...
   Jan-16-19 Wang Hao vs M Kravtsiv, 2008 (replies)
ChessHigherCat: <TheaN> Some users do comment like that on games; we could make it a standard, but then again, kibitzing also makes games generally more known to the users so more will have seen the position.> That's true, but if enough people did it then nobody could possibly ...
   Jan-15-19 A Giri vs I Nepomniachtchi, 2019
ChessHigherCat: Turned his position into Swiss cheese like an Amish girl
   Jan-14-19 T Harutyunian vs P Qalagashvili, 2018 (replies)
ChessHigherCat: Both these guys would be tough to beat in an unpronounceable names competition. Puns, anyone?
   Jan-14-19 G O'Toole vs R Haria, 2009 (replies)
ChessHigherCat: The Right O'Toole for the Job I spent 30s calculating and played Bxg6, too, which also works but the puzzle was instructive in terms of see a good move, find a better one (or the Zoolander classic, relax, don't do it, when you want to go to it...)
   Jan-13-19 Seirawan vs Kasparov, 1986 (replies)
ChessHigherCat: This is a real game of cat and mouse, waiting to see who will lose patience and take a risk just to make something happen. Seirawan has the patience of a Buddha (I wish I could do that!) and Kasparov ends up taking the unsound risks.
