Decided to post on cg again without getting too fond of it. Welcome to anyone who visits my forum! I don't look much like my avatar, but that's pretty much how I think I am.

Dionysius1: I do agree with the words Julian Barnes put in the mouths of sceptics and ultra-sceptics, at least as far as super GM chess goes. I can't understand enough of it to get any real enjoyment from watching it or playing over the moves. I do those things out of habit, and I do enjoy ...
 
   Jan-19-17 Spassky vs Judit Polgar, 1993 (replies)
 
Dionysius1: Crikey - it's a long way from the 1950s to 40,000 BC!
 
   Jan-19-17 V Drueke vs R Goldt, 1982
 
Dionysius1: OK. I like the idea in the opening as long as White can find king safety quickly enough. Shame about 22...Rxd5 (23 Qxd5 Nf4) and all the dark square weaknesses.
 
   Jan-18-17 Matulovic vs I Bilek, 1967 (replies)
 
Dionysius1: Wasn't it Matulovic who at an international congress (Hastings I think) tried to solve his time trouble by switching the clock to the other side of the board? It was still turned inwards of course, so his very few minutes were now on the clock nearest his opponent.
 
   Jan-17-17 Nunn vs I Sanders, 2016
 
Dionysius1: Only as long as he makes them 1 e4 and 2 e5. Claims that someone is giving their opponent a free move tend to be overblown - they're usually only allowing/provoking their opponent to make a move they want him to make.
 
   Jan-15-17 Louis Paulsen
 
Dionysius1: Blimey <Zanzibar>! That's beautiful, and a bit eye-watering to a man in his 61st year. Nostalgia rules ok!
 
   Jan-14-17 W So vs Carlsen, 2017 (replies)
 
Dionysius1: Not sure I agree. The interesting thing for me is how the opponent takes advantage of the error, if he sees it at all (if an error is unseen, is it an error/if a tree falls in the woods with no-one to hear it, does it make a sound?). Of course, an error is a necessary condition ...
 
   Jan-12-17 Tarjan vs M Mills, 1971
 
Dionysius1: Presumably Black doesn't castle a move earlier because of 9...0-0 10. Rxf5 e6xf5 11. Qh5
 
   Jan-10-17 Portisch - Larsen Candidates Quarterfinal (1977) (replies)
 
Dionysius1: :-) D
 
   Jan-09-17 Chandler vs O I Barkan, 1975 (replies)
 
Dionysius1: Monday and the mate isn't by Q sacrifice? Q: What's red and invisible? A: Not a tomato
