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: <Eyal: Thanks, <Archives>. That certainly looks like an improvement on the first edition. I'm still unconvinced by the analysis, however... after 13...Bc5 14.Qf4 bxc4 15.Bc3: Analyzing 15...Qxa2 here is doing the same "trick" of choosing a crappy move for Black which

ChessHigherCat: Black's pieces are incredibly well coordinated by move 48. I think she was just outclassed by a better player, although she may be rated higher for the moment.

ChessHigherCat: < WannaBe: AI can now read better than human: http://money.cnn.com/2018/01/15/tec... I'm very skeptical about that because it depends so much on the questions. Look at this sentence, for example: "China has built 57 new missile sites in the past 5 years" The computer may

ChessHigherCat: What a classy final move!
 
   Jan-14-18 Caruana vs G Jones, 2018 (replies)
 
ChessHigherCat: <GSM> Thanks for the explanations! I have noticed that the evaluations are pretty arbitrary in end games, but I think that what the sudden drop to 0.00 in this case might be due to identifying the position in the tablebase, since it was so simple. Jones certainly did a ...
 
   Jan-14-18 Wei Yi vs Svidler, 2018 (replies)
 
ChessHigherCat: A 124-move draw. Glad I didn't suffer through that!
 
   Jan-14-18 Karjakin vs Anand, 2018
 
ChessHigherCat: <spingo: 21...Nxb4 would have created a heightened oblique.> Aha, that explains it. I mean that explains it?
 
   Jan-14-18 Sultan Khan vs Capablanca, 1930 (replies)
 
ChessHigherCat: <Ratt Boy> WWI was all about imperialism (the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand in Serbia as a protest against the Austrian empire) but you're certainly right that it was a stupid war and anybody in their right mind would have stayed out of it (whereas in fact, almost

ChessHigherCat: <Stonehenge> Right, drawish wood-pushing (I originally misspelled your name as "Stonehedge", which reminds me of Hadrian's wall)
 
   Jan-14-18 Shirov vs S Sevian, 2016 (replies)
 
ChessHigherCat: The first move must be Rxb2.I meant if black plays Nxe7, Rxc2+ Kb1 with a kamikaze holy wind-mill that at least wins back the Queen. So Rxb2 Bd3 Nf4 Bxf4 Bxf4+ with another windmill! My first Sunday, unless I've missed something as always. I also considered Rxb2 Kxb2 Rb8+ but
