I'm 38, from Montclair, N.J., USA.
I'm unrated -- have played since I was 5 but only recently under time controls. Favorite players: Tal, Kasparov, Fischer, Spielmann, Rubinstein, Spassky

   Apr-25-18 A Wang vs Jennifer Yu, 2018
PKNJ: Not true - if White plays 6. Nc3 instead of Nd2, he can hold the pawn after 6. ... Qe7 7. Qd5 - as long as he's willing to accept shattered queenside pawns after Bxc3. That imbalance is what makes the Budapest a gambit - and fun!

PKNJ: Hi, <Moszkowski012273>, what would be the best way to get in touch with you off-line? I am a journalist interested in writing about Bill Lombardy. No hassles (for you or him), I would just like to discuss the idea. Please let me know.
   Apr-20-16 A Bannik vs Korchnoi, 1954 (replies)
PKNJ: Does that count as a First!? (Apologies, but it would be my first.)
   Dec-30-14 Topalov vs Anand, 2004 (replies)
PKNJ: How about 41. Rc4? If White moves his queen, he loses his rook. If takes the rook with his queen, that loses the queen. But if he takes with the rook, that allows Qg1.
   Feb-25-12 Faehndrich / Charousek vs Halprin / Marco, 1897 (replies)
PKNJ: I vote for this as the craziest game of all time. Not the best, or most significant, or most complicated, but the craziest ... I count 10 times that one side or the other just chucks away material. What do you all think?
   Dec-15-09 Botvinnik vs Tal, 1960 (replies)
PKNJ: Kibitzers love to speculate. We kibitz! I just wanted to say on this site, which has brought forth so much love and appreciation for Tal, that this is my favorite game of all time. The titanic nature of the clash, the audacity of Tal's play, the good humor and honesty of his ...
   Dec-15-09 Nakamura vs McShane, 2009 (replies)
PKNJ: This game won the London Chess Classic brilliancy prize -- 10,000 Euros and a trophy to Luke McShane.
   Nov-29-08 Portisch vs Korchnoi, 1983 (replies)
PKNJ: Yes, the point here is that heading into this fourth game of the Candidates quarterfinal, Portisch was already trailing by two full points. So he went in for sharp play, and gave up the exchange for two pawns with 33. Rxc3. And he rejected Korchnoi's sacrificial offer of perpetual ...
   Aug-13-08 G Welling vs Bronstein, 1996
PKNJ: From the website: "In 1996, Welling played against Bronstein in the Belgian League and put 1.b3 e5 2.Bb2 on the board. 'Here Bronstein thought for more than half an hour and then played 2Nc6. After the game, I asked him why, and he gave me the answer: "I know that its
   Aug-13-08 G Welling vs Bronstein, 1991 (replies)
PKNJ: From the website in December 2006, when David Bronstein passed away: "IM Gerard Welling played several games against Bronstein. He tells about a post-mortem after a game in Bussum in 1991: 'After the game my opponent was truly surprised. Had I really missed that I was ...
