Infohunter
Member since May-29-03 · Last seen Aug-21-17
I've been on the lookout for bits of chess information ever since I started collecting literature on the game back in 1972. Yes, the Fischer-Spassky match is what started it all! At any rate, I can see that I've come to the right place, both for giving and for receiving chess information online.

Infohunter: <Cheapo by the Dozen: Nxf7 is better than Ng6, since it obviates the defense ... f6, which slows things down quite a bit. White surely wins either way, of course.> Maybe I'm missing something, but it seems to me that if Black answers 21.Ng6 with 21...f6 there then follows ...
 
   Aug-12-17 Danielle Zimrin vs Natasha Isabel Van Niekerk, 2016
 
Infohunter: Hard to believe that White played 6.Nxf6+??? instead of 6.Nd6#! Why else should White want to play 5.Qe2--other than the fact of setting up the mate-on-the-move trap it really isn't such a hot choice.

Infohunter: The pun works a lot better if you don't know Hungarian.

Infohunter: <offramp> Let us not forget the singer Thomas L. Thomas: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thoma...
 
   Jul-18-17 D Kollars vs S Burns-Mannion, 2016 (replies)
 
Infohunter: What a finish! It certainly would have been anticlimactic for Black to have played this one out any further.
 
   Jul-18-17 Borbely vs Kovacs, 1948 (replies)
 
Infohunter: I first saw this theme in O Feuer vs O'Kelly, 1934 .
 
   Jul-03-17 J Montezinos vs Euwe, 1927 (replies)
 
Infohunter: Yup--Black plays Bishop to King six check, and that's the name of that tune!
 
   Jun-29-17 Hebden vs A Madan, 2007 (replies)
 
Infohunter: <Brapp: Madan persisted long enough being down material. Why was this the time to concede? 53...Rh5+ 54. Kg1 Rh7 and the game continues. Still a lost position though.> Yes, and that in short order, to wit: 55. Qb8+ Bf8 56. Be7.
 
   Apr-10-17 B Blumenfeld vs NN, 1903 (replies)
 
Infohunter: So even granting that I did not see White's best play, the statement that Black still loses, even if he declines the Queen, holds good.

Infohunter: I saw him at the US Open in Pasadena in 1983. R.I.P. GM Bisguier.
