Diocletian: [DIAGRAM] Thank you, Mr. barleycorn, for your interest. From this position the last three moves were: 39. Nge5 Rb8 40. Ng5+ Kf6 41. Rf7# This was played at with the computer set at level 4 - supposedly rated 1600, but I think it is weaker than that.
   Jun-10-17 Hort vs Portisch, 1973 (replies)
Diocletian: I will add this game to my favorites list. I got the first move 16.BxN with the same mating idea in mind: double the pawns and catch the king, but I learned a lot from Hort's masterful execution of the plan. Once the king is exposed, clearly, I knew as well, White needs a rook to
   Jan-17-17 P Rout vs M Al Sayed, 2016 (replies)
Diocletian: A good puzzle that I admit to finding harder than "easy" but that gives way to the great principle,'see-a-check-give-a-check," and respecting the powerful pawn. Now the knight sac 12. Ne5 - is it really sound? Is there an equally simple principle here, or must I calculate ...
   Dec-12-16 Mayet vs Harrwitz, 1848 (replies)
Diocletian: Nostalgia Day. Harrwitz...Anderssen, Morphy, Loewenthal, Capt Evans....Old games like this remind me of old books, great players of a swashbuckling era, descriptive notation and my boyhood before a chess board and pieces long ago.
   Dec-08-16 Kasparov vs Karpov, 1990 (replies)
Diocletian: I am often impatient with puns on players' names, but this one has Klass.
   Nov-29-16 Karjakin vs Carlsen, 2016 (replies)
Diocletian: The champions are playing blind. Soon they will shake hands and announce their result. Relax.
   May-21-16 Robert James Fischer (replies)
Diocletian: I wonder how an IQ of 160 or 180 is measured. I looked this conundrum up once, but I remember nothing of what I read - except that it was all nonsense. And who would be qualified to measure an IQ of 180 or more? Some bureaucrat? A teacher? ( I share more than one bad attitude ...
   Dec-16-15 Hort vs Petrosian, 1970 (replies)
Diocletian: <LIFE Master AJ>These tiresome puns are pretty dumb and for me add nothing to this excellent site. The puns are mostly simple minded perversions of one player's name and nearly as declasse as ridiculing a player for physical appearance or a handicap, to which I would not ...
   Apr-21-15 J Corzo vs Capablanca, 1901 (replies)
Diocletian: WE ARE NOW FOLLOWING J Corzo vs Capablanca, 1901. YOU ARE PLAYING THE ROLE OF CORZO. Your score: 51 (par = 41) I find the Evans Gambit, despite its charm, stressful for White. I feel that I can barely maintain the attack, which is probably fundamentally unsound, and I ...

Diocletian: Well, Sneaky, I clearly asked the right chess player! Thank you so much! I will really enjoy studying your reply.
