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

   Aug-16-17 Navara vs L Dominguez, 2017
ChessHigherCat: Good point, I thought I must be missing a mate!
   Aug-16-17 Kasparov vs Navara, 2017 (replies)
ChessHigherCat: <Nerwal: 34. ♘d3 is really strange. 34. e6 and 34. ♘xg6 fxg6 35. ♔d4 are sure wins at a glance for players of this level.> That line looks good but Nd3 would have been fine, too, if only K had played 37. Kc3. How does black stop the c-pawn? If 37..Kd8 ...

ChessHigherCat: Rook out!
   Aug-16-17 Saint Louis Rapid & Blitz (Rapid) (2017) (replies)
ChessHigherCat: <jith1207: <I can't believe Nepo found that in blitz!> <Looking at the tactics, I was also surprised he found it in fast chess. However I replayed the game, and I could see Nepo spotting that ploy when he moved to queen to g5. Nepo is in world top 5 in rapid chess
   Aug-16-17 Rubinstein vs Bogoljubov, 1922 (replies)
ChessHigherCat: <WorstPlayerEver: <offramp> <What kind of eh problems? Someone made a stupid comment. That's all. I leave it from here.> I admit I should have checked the dates before I said it must have been emotionally charged between Rubinstein and the Nazi-sympathizer ...
   Aug-16-17 DeFirmian vs Huebner, 1995 (replies)
ChessHigherCat: I saw the possibility 21...Rg8 but I thought, well in that case, 22. Qxh4 wins a piece and protects the bishop on d4, so it's not worth analyzing further. 22. Rg7 was much better though.
   Aug-15-17 Navara vs Karjakin, 2017 (replies)
ChessHigherCat: I guess black played 16...Ba8 because otherwise 17. Nf4 wins the d5 pawn
   Aug-15-17 L Dominguez vs Le Quang Liem, 2017
ChessHigherCat: Interesting how white refrained from taking the pawn with check on move 36 to prevent his K from being trapped on the back rank and then on move 37 to prevent black from taking f2 with check.
   Aug-15-17 Oral vs S Brodbeck, 1997 (replies)
ChessHigherCat: Same solution as PB and rogl but I forgot the check signs.
   Aug-14-17 Carlsen vs Anand, 2014
ChessHigherCat: <Bluegrey> Okay, thanks!
