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: 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 ...

King.Arthur.Brazil: Monday puzzle always make me begin the week laughing. Today is so easy that, I have to see why did white have being check mated, while he is so near to black king neck. So I see other friends talking the same: how can one fall on a 3 moves check-mate, with a move Txh7 in ...

King.Arthur.Brazil: I saw 36.Qf6 but as its said that "medium", I chose the move 36.Rxg7+ and follow the same sequence of the game, but instead of 40.Tg8+ I would play Qf6 and mate next.

   Jun-11-17 J L Hammer vs M Zumsande, 2016 (replies)
King.Arthur.Brazil: It is a good problem, but sorry, this time, the move is not insane, since white win the Nf6, attacks the Nd3. After all foreseen changes, white has 2N+ 1B+ 2R agains't 1Q +2B. Therefore, white has winning material and the black treat of Q g2 is easy to avoyd, but for the ...

King.Arthur.Brazil: Friends, everytime is more uneasy to me to visit our Chess forum due to my own obligations, that includes my family -and now rarely I have time to sit and study a game. Today was one of this rare occasions where I see the position, didn't see any move better than simple ...

King.Arthur.Brazil: Just to say "I'm alive". Bf7+ Nxf7 Qh7#, but I prefer Bf7+ Kg7 Rh7#. Guess some didn't see this mate.
   Jan-01-17 Wei Yi vs L Bruzon Batista, 2015 (replies)
King.Arthur.Brazil: I answered correctly most the beginning failed on 27.Sd2...Se3+ and Qb3. I missed 31.Qd3 and the final 32.Se1. My headaches don't help much.
   Dec-31-16 I Nepomniachtchi vs A A Kharitonov, 2009 (replies)
King.Arthur.Brazil: I see that Nc7 was theme of combination due to Ne6+ possibility, but didn't see Qh6+ directly, but had seen Rxc7! After all, the win in the endgame seem to throw out all the briliancy expected before. It's nothing wrong, yes, white win but didn't seem too good. But this ...
