Robespierre
Member since Aug-03-10
Boring, middle-aged, Midwestern white guy who enjoys folkdancing, baseball, poetry & chess in that order. Favorite players: Capo, Fischer, Morphy & Lasker -- in that order. Apex of my chess career was playing Sammy Reshevsky to a draw (one of 2 draws out of 28 matches) when he came to Carleton College in 1965.

Robespierre: When I arrived at move 34 my instinct was 34. Re h3 .... forcing 34 ... QxR followed by 35. gh3 This results in an endgame of R+5 pawns vs B+6 pawns which should be winnable by White. Anyone else end up with this analysis?

Robespierre: Thank you, Marcel Bieler, for providing this wonderful historical info -- extremely entertaining!
 
   May-26-16 G Szilagyi vs Robatsch, 1966 (replies)
 
Robespierre: As an "advanced beginner" I believe that I've gotten 2 or 3 Weds puzzles in the past 4-5 years. This was the 3d or 4th puzzle I've solved in under 3 minutes. I'm either improving or this Weds puzzle was easier than most Weds puzzles.

Robespierre: When I get the daily puzzle in less than 30 seconds one knows that it's likely the first or 2d day of the week!
 
   Jan-19-16 Euwe vs E Spencer, 1924 (replies)
 
Robespierre: May I assume that the pun refers to the 'Marks & Spencer' retail chain in the UK?
 
   Jan-07-16 Nimzowitsch vs Leonhardt, 1911 (replies)
 
Robespierre: Wow -- I don't believe that I've ever seen such carefully crafted notes. Even from Capablanca.
 
   Dec-22-15 N Croad vs J G Pettersen, 2014 (replies)
 
Robespierre: When I solve a CG puzzle in less than 30-40 secs it's probably a Monday. However, being merely an advanced novice I thought that the black pawn -- rather than the queen -- would capture the bishop.
 
   Oct-17-15 H Porth vs P Kotsur, 2001 (replies)
 
Robespierre: For a player of my skill to get the first 4 moves on a Sat puzzle is quite extraordinary (although I believe there was at least a tincture of luck involved!). After that things fell apart.
 
   Oct-13-15 Kiril D Georgiev vs Shaked, 1999 (replies)
 
Robespierre: Let me echo the remarks of 'waustad' -- what a superb pun! From "Mr Gorbachev, tear down this wall!" to "Mr Georgiev, wear down this Tal!" Primo!
 
   Oct-07-15 F Destrebecq vs G Drogou, 1982 (replies)
 
Robespierre: Refer to the comment from 'psionIO' above. Replace the numbers, 5 & 4, with my numbers, 10 & 9. Thus, he's about twice as astute as I in solving these problems! ;-))
