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!

   Jan-16-17 Spassky vs Uhlmann, 1976
 
ChessHigherCat: Okay, I see, in your variation BxN, KxB and there's no more pin. That's the last time I'm going to try to analyze chess and work at the same time.
 
   Jan-16-17 Van Wely vs Eljanov, 2017 (replies)
 
ChessHigherCat: What refutes 25. Qxe6? If 25..Bd5 26. Qxf5 Ne4 27. Qh5 Nxf2+ 28. Kg1 Nxd1 29. Ng6+ Kg8 30. Nxf8 Bxe3+ 31. Kh1 Rxc1 and that's as far as my addled brain can get without a board. Is that right?
 
   Jan-15-17 Carlsen vs R Wojtaszek, 2017 (replies)
 
ChessHigherCat: Whoops, that right! I can't do all this in my head. I don't even have a chessboard anymore, do you know of some online chessboard that lets you move pieces around like a regular board (I know that seems like a ridiculous use of a computer but...)
 
   Jan-15-17 J Xiong vs J van Foreest, 2017
 
ChessHigherCat: <belgradegambit: After 27 Rd5? cxb3 and black is close to winning. (28 axb3 a4 and the pin is quite nasty).> Okay, you found a guardian spirit for that line. But why not the second line (26. f4, etc.)?
 
   Jan-15-17 Spassky vs Fischer, 1960
 
ChessHigherCat: <Sharpovna>: Kasparov wasn't so sure he was better than Fisher, at least not unless he was showing uncharacteristic false modesty in this great 2011 quote from <Damianx>: "you ask how can u compere Fisher to Kasparov well Kasparov does i have him being interviewed
 
   Jan-14-17 Nakamura vs Le Quang Liem, 2015 (replies)
 
ChessHigherCat: I think the idea of 20...Nh7 must be that he was planning to play Nf8 to defend the castle because the black king would be pretty lonely with the knight out on d5. White could start attacking immediately with 21. Qc2 or Qd3 and black would be forced to weaken the castle with ...
 
   Jan-14-17 H Ranneforth vs H E Dobell, 1903 (replies)
 
ChessHigherCat: Headline for the revenge match: "Heinrich ran forth to answer the do'bell"
 
   Jan-14-17 K Rogoff vs Kavalek, 1978
 
ChessHigherCat: I don't know about the end game, but it's ironic that Kavalek ended up with the queenside majority because in the opening and middle game Rogoff seemed to forget which side of the board his king was on, focusing entirely on a queenside attack. He acted like playing g3 ...
 
   Jan-14-17 Alisa Maric
 
ChessHigherCat: Twin sister WGMs. I wonder what kind of ID they have to show in tournaments to make sure the right one is playing? They probably have to get different tattoos or something.
 
   Jan-13-17 Ivanchuk vs Carlsen, 2016
 
ChessHigherCat: I vantchu K-arlsen and I'm gonna getchu!
