I live in Utah, but I'm simply a hobbyist. I love playing through great chess games, and I will play occasionally online, but if I had a rating, I'm afraid it would probably only contain 3 digits.

   Jun-08-19 Tal vs Wade, 1971 (replies)
Oginschile: To wade in deep waters, it helps to be Tal(l)
   May-09-19 Radjabov vs R Wojtaszek, 2015 (replies)
Oginschile: To queen a pawn!!! It's amazing the extents to which black has to stretch himself to keep the aPawn from queening, and white simply pushes black to the ledge everywhere else on the board.
   Dec-19-18 Short vs Zhu Chen, 2002
Oginschile: Short plays long
   Nov-28-18 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
Oginschile: I'm betting we don't see f3 here anytime soon.
   Nov-26-18 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
Oginschile: I have long since given up second guessing grandmasters.. much less the elite among grandmasters, but considering Carlsen's penchant for playing out the slightest of advantages to ridiculous lengths.. something about this seems disingenuous. I am looking forward to hearing ...
   Nov-22-18 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
Oginschile: Feels to me like Caruana has been having to find only moves for a while... walking the razors edge a bit. He seems to have a little more freedom now to prod for advantages.
   Mar-16-15 Steinitz vs J B Brockenbrough, 1885 (replies)
Oginschile: I saw Rg3 Qxg3 Ne7# But when I didn't see it works the other way around.. somehow I feel like I missed this puzzle. I wish I could blame cataracts for my chess blindness.
   Mar-18-14 Svidler vs D Andreikin, 2014 (replies)
Oginschile: I saw a case where a very strong player (non-grandmaster) underpromoted to a rook simply to tempt his opponent (who unfortunately was myself) to not take it and find a better line. That doesn't seem to be the case here. I've also seen a crazy situation (though it may have been ...
   Feb-20-14 Fedorov vs Shirov, 2001 (replies)
Oginschile: Qe4 would appear to run into f5. The white queen must guard against mate on g2, so f5 wins the queen immediately.
   Jul-18-13 S Voitsekhovsky vs I Khairullin, 2013
Oginschile: It's always interesting when looking at Grandmaster games at first because, especially when black's attack looks menacing, we want to see the finish. I don't see a finish here, no imminent mate. Best I see is 17. Bxf3 Qxe5 which leaves white down a couple of pawns and his king's ...
