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

   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
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"...
   Nov-16-16 J L Arnason vs Dreev, 1990 (replies)
Chizoad: The double bishop sacrifice beginning on h7 is fairly obvious although I like many missed the correct line, assuming 22.exf6 was the way. What's most amazing to me about this puzzle is just how spectacularly bad black's position is. When the sacrificial attack happens there is not ...
   Nov-15-16 V Fedoseev vs Y Kryvoruchko, 2016 (replies)
Chizoad: The game score here is incorrect. White resigned after 49...c5! since the bishop cannot stop all 3 pawns at the same time. The idea is that after ...c4 and eventually ...f3, white plays Bd1 to stop black's f-pawn from queening, but ...c3! and black wins. This opening for white is ...
