Is there something wrong with being a lifelong 1500's player? Maybe laziness is a sin...

   May-29-18 Altibox Norway (2018) (replies)
Chizoad: Not that I have any business weighing in but I always suspected ChrisOwen's posts to be some sort of steganography in action.
   Mar-30-18 Oscar Panno
Chizoad: As counterpoint to the Billy Wilder quote: I used to play in a home poker game for low stakes. One exceedingly garrulous guy in the game, Stu, would crack some hilarious jokes. A new player sat in one time and said to the table "That Stu guy is pretty funny" to which another ...
   Nov-17-17 A Giri vs R Rapport, 2017 (replies)
Chizoad: Neat - 55.Kb7? followed by 56.KxN?? loses! The black king sneaks in and paralyzes the white king thanks to the a pawn: 55.Kb7 Kd7 56.KxN?? Kc7 57.a3 Kc8 58.a4 Kc7 until eventually white is forced to play h4, leading to ...h1=B# (or queen but the bishop promotion is more fun).
   Nov-10-17 Nakamura vs Topalov, 2017 (replies)
Chizoad: Obviously a blunder in a drawn position, but Topalov was out of time from what I can tell. No increment in these games...
   Jun-13-17 Ngoc Truongson Nguyen vs Kanep, 2010 (replies)
Chizoad: Disagree. The pronunciation of Nguyen essentially drops the "N" sound (although it is vaguely present). It's one syllable - not two. Thus, the "and" is necessary.
   Jun-13-17 L Dominguez vs Yusupov, 2006 (replies)
Chizoad: 32. Nh5! is a very nice move: 32. Nh5 gxh5 33. gxh5 Rf8 34. Rg1+ Kf7 35. Rg7+ and the black queen falls. Beautiful and smooth attack from white here.
   Mar-05-17 Martyn J Corden
Chizoad: I met Martyn Corden when he was at Florida State University. I was a freshman at FSU playing in the Tallahassee Open in the unrated (U1400) section (my first tournament ever), and he was in the open section. There were several strong players in Tallahassee at that time, though I ...
   Jan-25-17 A L'Ami vs A Merry, 2015 (replies)
Chizoad: Looks like 32...Qxd2 33.Qxd2 Nf2+ 34.Qxf2 Rxf2 gets the job done. The black queen is immune to capture by the rook: 33.Rxd2 Rf1+ and mate to follow. But the white queen must be given up for a knight, leaving black up the exchange with a dominant position. I didn't see much for white
   Dec-11-16 Keres vs Konstantinopolsky, 1948
Chizoad: I'm trying to learn to play against the Caro-Kann, and I don't understand 7.a3 in this game. 10 years later, Keres played another game that had the same position on board, but via transposition. Again, he had to play defensively and lost thanks to Tal's incessant pressure. Keres vs ...
   Dec-11-16 Pillsbury vs Von Popiel, 1900 (replies)
Chizoad: I also went down that path of Iggy Pop's real name but Osterberg never played Pillsbury. First one I've ever solved in time! I have to admit it was pretty thrilling to see that little banner down there saying "congrats"...
