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!

ChessHigherCat: 36...Nc6 was when every kibbitzer in the room said bu, bu, but wha about de...?
   Feb-24-17 E Canal vs P Beggi, 1976 (replies)
ChessHigherCat: Fantastic game, how come I never heard of Beggi before? I accidentally saw (Freud would say I subconsciously cheated, of course) <nalinw>'s comment so I knew the first move had to be N+ on e4 or g4, probably the latter to prevent white from getting other pieces into ...
   Feb-23-17 M Gurevich vs Tal, 1990
ChessHigherCat: <Nerwal: At this level of play Tal probably didn't miss 20. ♘xd5 but maybe how strong the quiet move 24. ♖c1 really was.> I see, thanks. It must be really nerve-wracking playing against somebody who's so good that you always think "Well he's certainly ...

ChessHigherCat: - Mecking can never get anyone to listen to him. - Vun day ve vill see Heinrich mecking himself hort.
   Feb-22-17 Kasimdzhanov vs Ponomariov, 2007 (replies)
ChessHigherCat: I saw Ponomariov play in a championship at Hotel Metropol in Moscow in 2002. I remember a lot of people didn't take it seriously because Kasparov refused to participate. P. is definitely a very strong player but he didn't strike me as world champion material and you don't ...
   Feb-21-17 Lahno vs Kosteniuk, 2007 (replies)
ChessHigherCat: <Richard Taylor: Here's a problem I have been trying to solve for about a week! It is a Sam Lloyd problem I got from a local paper, the column by Leonard Barden.> That's the first masochism tango puzzle I've ever seen. Does it start out 1...Qg7 2. Bd5 Kg6?
   Feb-21-17 Capablanca vs Alekhine, 1927 (replies)
ChessHigherCat: <GerMalaz: That looks like years active to me, not ELO (Capa died in 1942, Alekhine in 1946).> It was supposed to be a joke
   Feb-21-17 R Krogius vs A Ojanen, 1944 (replies)
ChessHigherCat: <Phony Benoni: Considering how Black has played so far, I would be tempted to play 7.0-0 and hope for 7...bg4 -- which, after a, a Legall Move.> You found de Legal move. Has anybody else that <CG> has suddenly added 5 moves to the usual degrees of difficulty ...
   Feb-20-17 Svidler vs Carlsen, 2006 (replies)
ChessHigherCat: Judging by 13. Re1 I think you should keep your eye on the kid. With some hard work and the right coach, he could end up getting an honorable mention one day in the Arctic Circle Penguin and Polar Bear Playoff!
   Feb-19-17 Spassky vs Beliavsky, 1988 (replies)
ChessHigherCat: <Walter Glattke: After 26.-Be6 27.Rd3 Bc1 28.Qxc1 Kg7 29.g3 the attack could be stopped.> Okay, thanks for explaining, I never would have thought of 27...Bc1 (and sorry I missed your first post)
