Oginschile
Member since Jul-23-05 · Last seen Oct-17-17
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.

   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 ...

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 ...

Oginschile: Both of these players have left us amazing gifts to study and admire, but none seem to shine brighter than when these two masters squared off against each other. I never tire of playing through this game, or this one : Nezhmetdinov vs Tal, 1961
 
   Feb-25-13 Fischer vs Larsen, 1970 (replies)
 
Oginschile: Tal was one of the greatest gentleman the game of Chess has known.
 
   Jan-29-13 Le Quang Liem vs Short, 2013 (replies)
 
Oginschile: Very nice zugzwang here.
 
   Jan-17-13 Yifan Hou vs Nakamura, 2013 (replies)
 
Oginschile: Nakamura's defense simply flows together to magically close every corridor that Yifan opens. It seems white's attempts at aggression simply ended in a ruined position. Very solid performance from Nakamura.

Oginschile: Great innovation, cashing in on that queenside majority. Very inventive way to clear the path for those powerful pawns!
 
   Jan-17-13 Harikrishna vs Van Wely, 2013 (replies)
 
Oginschile: This end reminds me of Fisher's masterpiece against Letelier - Letelier vs Fischer, 1960 Brilliant find. Bravo Pentala!
