I'm 57y old chess player, live in BELO HORIZONTE, in the center of BRAZIL. Played chess from 11y, was 5th in JR championship 75, won 2 university team championship as 4th board 1977/78, 2nd in classification of my state championship/83 when abandonned chess for a while. Married, sons. Now I like to play with chessmaster's, and has won good games among several masters played by the game, including FLOHR, SMYSLOV, RESHEVSKY, NIMZOVITCH and CAPABLANCA; sure is not easy to do it! Of course I spend much time, trying go forth go back; but chess master has mores resources than me, so I guess that was correct that a I have a chance to go back some moves, as the computer can see everything on 10 moves ahead, or maybe like it. My favorite players are RUBSTEIN, SMYSLOV, BOTWINNIK, LARSEN, FISCHER, POLUGAIEVSKY, KASPAROV and me, of course. I have a lot of bad results in competitions, as I have never time to really dedicate my self to won a championship, but I have some beautiful games, including those with computer, where I had played very good the end games, sometines with little vantage, of course computer never give up, only when mate comes.

King.Arthur.Brazil: For the move 24... Qxe5 the check 26. Qg6+ is stronger than the sacrificy 26. Bxh6 because it wins a tempo from the defence. For the other move 24... Qb6(!) instead of 25. Bf7 Bf6, I would like 25. e6 Bf7(forced) 26. Qg6+ Kh8 27.Bxh6 and there's no way to avoid mate: for ...

King.Arthur.Brazil: By the way, after 34.Qxg4 Bc6 35.Qh4+ (now, not 35...Kg8 36.Qc4+ K... 37.Qxc6) Kg6 36. Qxc4 (not 36...Bxa4, because of 37.Qxa6+ K... 38.Qxa4) Bb7 37.Qxb4 and the 3P are captured... Maybe someone find another reason...
   Apr-21-19 Botvinnik vs Smyslov, 1954
King.Arthur.Brazil: About Botwinnik commentary "The continuation 22... Ra3 23. Qc2 Rea8 24. Rd6 (Nd7 25. Nd5 cxd5 26. Rxe6) would be dangerous for black." I would like to say that, after 22...Ra3 23. Qb2 (not Qc2) R8a8, white has two good moves: 1. the shown 24. Rd6 with the threat Bxc5 ...

King.Arthur.Brazil: The very elegant check mate with two bishops in the black King neck. I guess that must be ressalted the beauty of the Q sacrifice. About suffering a check mate, there was a simultaneous play of our Braziian master Maria Cristina Borges against 15 (1975), she was in white:
   Mar-10-19 Tolush vs Smyslov, 1952
King.Arthur.Brazil: e6!is fantastic... and forget about fxe6, not because Rxh7+ Kxh and Qg6+ and Qh6# but directly Ng6#. Which is the same answer for black move f7-6. Game over, any reply check mate comes.
   Dec-25-18 R Mateo vs Chessmaster, 1998 (replies)
King.Arthur.Brazil: Monday puzzle always is a fun time! Rxf1 and a sequence beginning with Ba6+ follows to give mate. I know that some strange comments are retired, but it is the solely way to say Merry Christmas everybody, including a wish for a happy New Year too. This Includes you in the ...
   Dec-10-18 Tal vs A S Segal, 1952 (replies)
King.Arthur.Brazil: I made a mistake in my analysis, because for the "easy" 29.Rxd7... I saw the wrong reply: 29... Rxc5, after 30.Rxc7??? Rxc3 and white had won nothing, but instead, 30. Rxf7+ K or Qxf7 and QXc5 won the R! lgs. I gave up and follow on 29. R1e8 (if 29...Bxe8, 30.Ne6+ or ...
   Jul-16-18 Naiditsch vs C Jeitz, 2016 (replies)
King.Arthur.Brazil: As the majority of our friends, surely Qxh7+ Kxh7 Rh3+. I didn't need to answer as it is very very easy. But, it was curious as I turn to my favorite voyage in the old Chess games, I found exactly a the same problem in a 1949 game! Beleive me or not? John Penquite vs ...
   Jul-10-18 Topalov vs Anand, 2016 (replies)
King.Arthur.Brazil: It is easy to see: 34. Rxf3+ white loses the Q or is mate in the following moves. I would like say a word about some comment "Anand blundered". After 30... Rxf2, white position is not good, looks like 31.Qc3 could be more promissing than 31. h4. Maybe the expected way: ...
   Mar-24-18 Kramnik vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
King.Arthur.Brazil: I'm not a World champion but I didn't like the move 39.Rb7. I would play 39.Rc8 because among others, it has the threat of 40.Rxg5 followed by Rxe8 which force black to make his King back with 39... Ke7 for which 40.Re1 will be very string. Otherwise, black has to play ...
