King.Arthur.Brazil
Member since Feb-27-09 · Last seen Oct-19-19
I'm 61y old chess player, live in BELO HORIZONTE, in the center of BRAZIL. I played chess early as 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 long time, playing music. Now, I like to play against the chessmaster game, and had won good games among several "simulated" masters by the computer, including FLOHR, SMYSLOV, RESHEVSKY, NIMZOVITCH and CAPABLANCA; sure is not easy to do it! Of course I spend much time, trying to win, go forth, go back; but chess master has mores resources than me, so I guess that is correct that a I have a chance to go back some moves, as the computer can see everything on 10 moves ahead, or maybe more. It is like a study. My favorite players are RUBSTEIN, ALEKHINE(when sober), SMYSLOV, BOTWINNIK, LARSEN, FISCHER, POLUGAIEVSKY, KASPAROV and me, of course. I have a lot of bad results in competitions, as I had 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; sometimes, with little advantage, of course computer never give up, only when checkmate comes.

   Oct-19-19 B Sadiku vs S Soors, 2015
 
King.Arthur.Brazil: Although it repeat some checks inecessarily (maybe with time trouble or to try to make White commit a blunder), I discovered the main line checks and the checkmate, including the precious answer 44...♗e1+, which for me, happens at 40th move.
 
   Oct-13-19 L Christiansen vs Seirawan, 1978 (replies)
 
King.Arthur.Brazil: Amazing combination. Due to the title "very hard", I supposed it was 29. ♖xh6, however it was a guess only. After the second sacrifice 30.♖h4+, it became clear that black was in a net of mate. Surely, I don't considere that I found this moves. The lonely move ...
 
   Oct-08-19 Smyslov - Botvinnik World Championship Rematch (1958) (replies)
 
King.Arthur.Brazil: Today, I recognize that Botvinnik had a strong chess, mainly in the middle and endgame, like Capablanca, for example. However, I would like to point something strange in this match. Sometimes you see Smyslov appearently beginning an attack, then suddenly he comes back and
 
   Oct-08-19 Botvinnik vs Smyslov, 1958
 
King.Arthur.Brazil: Following the Stockfish 9 analysis: 39. a4 cxd4 40. exd4 ♕xf4 41. ♖c2 ♗f3 42. ♖xg2, then why ♕xd4+? Better seem to be 42..♗xg2 43. ♔xg2 ♕d2+ 44. ♔f1 ♕xh2 and White is paralized.
 
   Oct-08-19 Smyslov vs Botvinnik, 1958
 
King.Arthur.Brazil: <ughaibu> Think with me: who see the previous games, where Smyslov played so bad, even a student sometimes could play better. You will see a game where he has 2P ahead and loses, other he has a possibility of a passed pawn alone, where he drawn almost losing. This ...
 
   Oct-08-19 Smyslov vs Botvinnik, 1958 (replies)
 
King.Arthur.Brazil: It is amazing how both players are not working well in this match. You see some Smyslov without attitude. Firstly, he is in the seventh-rank, and instead of bring his KS rook in to play, he takes the one at 7th back to the 4th rank, then double the rook, while black ...
 
   Sep-28-19 Fedorov vs Lanka, 1997 (replies)
 
King.Arthur.Brazil: I answered correctly the majority, but 20. e4xd5 (premature), and 21.♘f5 (it is nor the same, baecause ♘h5 threats ♘f6+ which is conclusive. The 19...♔xg7 is mortal to black:20. ♗d4+, then: a) ♔g8 21. ♕h6 or b) e5 21. ♕xf7+ ...
 
   Sep-25-19 Euwe vs Udo Cawi, 1950 (replies)
 
King.Arthur.Brazil: I agree with <Jim> The best is 32. ♖xe8+ ♔xe8 33. ♗xe6 for which black loses the ♕ to escape from check-mate
 
   Sep-24-19 Bronstein vs Boleslavsky, 1958
 
King.Arthur.Brazil: Two fantastic games of Bronstein: his victories upon Tolush (White) and this one agaisnt Bolelavski (Black). So much strugle and technique.
 
   Sep-24-19 Tolush vs Geller, 1958
 
King.Arthur.Brazil: Maybe the follow sequence put the things in a right way 45...♕xf6 46. ♖xe8+ ♔g7 47. ♗e6 ♕xf4+ 48. ♔h3 ♕f3+ 49. ♔h4 ♕f2+ 50. ♔g5 ♕f6+ 51. ♔g4 ♕xb2 52. ♗f5 a3 53. ♖a8 ♕d4+ 54. ...
