   Feb-27-16 Z von Balla vs K Sterk, 1921
 
ChessPraxis: That's an interesting phrase: "A major and 3 minors vs 3 majors and a minor." I know that the term "major piece" is used to refer both queens and rooks, but I have never seen it used this way before, to roughly estimate the amount of material left on the board. Like, "Oh yeah. ...

ChessPraxis: Open Question: If you have used Chess Endgame Training software could you please let me know what brand you would recommend? The same goes for tactics training software. I'm interested in buying a piece of each type.

ChessPraxis: Why is this opening called Anti-Nimzo-indian instead of Queen's Gambit?
 
   May-29-10 J A Congdon vs E Delmar, 1880 (replies)
 
ChessPraxis: Patriot, micartouse, and THeaN: Thank you very much for taking the time to respond to the ridiculous position I advocated in this thread. I completely agree with each one of you. I should have put an "LOL" at the end of it to indicate I was just being sarcastic or writing a ...
 
   Mar-25-10 NN vs W Donisthorpe, 1890 (replies)
 
ChessPraxis: <<MarbleSkull>: Note to self: Don't let my opponent get a pawn on my 2nd rank by move seven.> Actually, White has a fairly high win rate when he lets the pawn get the 7th rank by the 7th move. (He just doesn't usually sac his Bishop on f7 as well.) Opening Explorer
 
   Mar-01-10 J Arizmendi Martinez vs J M Gomez Esteban, 2006 (replies)
 
ChessPraxis: I always wonder about games like this where the loser resigns AFTER he has played his last move. Has he made the move thinking that that he is still safe enough for the time being and then suddenly realized that his opponent has a crushing response? Or does he only realize it ...
 
   Feb-16-10 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
 
ChessPraxis: Is this the webpage where we talk about Magnus Carlsen or did it move??
 
   Sep-21-09 Reshevsky vs Robert E Byrne, 1973 (replies)
 
ChessPraxis: You have to include Steinitz as one of the best American players ever, too.
 
   Jul-21-09 Beliavsky vs Bacrot, 1999 (replies)
 
ChessPraxis: Besides being an interesting combo this is one crazy opening!
 
   Jun-24-09 Ivanchuk vs Carlsen, 2009 (replies)
 
ChessPraxis: Very interesting combination! Would you call the basic tactic a Rook skewer or a Rook pin?
