   Oct-05-17 J D Carlin vs N Pert, 2011
SuperPatzer77: <patzer2> <...the winning follow-up move 28...Rh8! -+ became clearly obvious. This forces mate after the game continuation or 28...Rh8! 29. Rh2 Qxg3+ 30. Rg2 Qe1+31. Bf1 Qh5 (diagram below)...> You mistyped 31...Qh5 - it should be 31...Qh4 but I saw your correct ...

SuperPatzer77: <JimNorCal: White is in check. After K moves (either square), Rc2 and its mate unless black gives up R for B....> <JimNorCal> It should say "Unless White gives up R for B" because White is forced to capture Black bishop after 111...Rc2. Actually, it's wrong color!
   Jun-16-17 A Giri vs Caruana, 2017
SuperPatzer77: It's totally impossible to win the game because of the wrong light-squared bishop with his h-pawn. SuperPatzer77
   Jun-12-17 Nakamura vs Karjakin, 2017
SuperPatzer77: No draw offers are allowed in this tourney. Both players had to use threefold repetition instead of agreed draw. Some USCF rules for the tourneys say no draw offers are allowed before move 30. SuperPatzer77
   May-25-17 Y Quesada Perez vs Akobian, 2017
SuperPatzer77: Black to play and win - see diagram below: [DIAGRAM] Varuzan Akobian missed a winning move - 53...Qg1! (threatening Qg4#), 54. Kh3 (only move) Qg4+, 55. Kh2 Qh5+, 56. Kg3 Qg6+ (forcing Queen trade and winning pawn ending for Black), 57. Qxg6+ Kxg6, 58. Kh4 Kh6, 59. Kg3 g5, ...

SuperPatzer77: <Peter Nemenyi: In the final position, if Black plays the relatively better 27...f5 rather than making luft for his king, the mate is 28. Bd5+ Rf7 29. Qg6+ Kh1 30. Bxf7 Bd3 31. Qh6+ Bh7 32. Bg6 Kg8 33. Qxh7+ Kf8 34. Qxf7#.> You overlooked the Black f-pawn on f5. The ...

SuperPatzer77: <botvinnik64: Bronstein is my favorite chess writer (still). I love The Sorcerer's Apprentice. In1952 he was as strong as Borvinnik, but alas, could only tie the Iron Man, my other chess hero. Great game.> <Botvinnik64> He's one of my favorite chess writers, too. ...

SuperPatzer77: Hi there, Sally Simpson!!! That's very true, Sally Simpson! Just call me Dave, by the way. I gotta be honest with you - I love this game because of Foisor's amazing mating tactics. Like <luzhxn> said, 25...Rf6!! is a real killer!! Also, 28...Rfxf1+!! is another real ...

Interesting that you would choose both the winningest and losingest teams to root for.

If you really love your Cubbies, I highly recommend the book "Crazy '08", an excellent read about the last time the Cubs won the World Series.

Jun-18-08  ravel5184: <SuperPatzer77> What's up with your forum? Only 1 kibitz? (well 2 now).
Jul-25-08  ravel5184: <SuperPatzer77> Have you per chance accidentally pressed the "Activate your forum" checkbox and never noticed it? Or are you not interested in posting on your own forum?

Dec-24-08  WhiteRook48: weird that someone won't post on his own forum
Jan-01-09  WhiteRook48: <Superpatzer77> what's up with your forum? You won't even kibitz on it? what an empty forum! what's up? Several months and no reply?

  agb2002: <SuperPatzer77: <agb2002> <That makes a big difference> Hee Hee Hee. You're absolutely right, <agb2002>. My winning line sure gives Black simplification. Well, simplification is much better than difficulty. I assume that almost every grandmaster really prefers simplification over difficulty.>

Agreed. I try to apply Occam's razor whenever possible but, as you have seen, I often miss the opportunity...

<Thanks, <agb2002>! Have a good weekend, dude!


And you too!

Do you speak Spanish?

<<agb2002> You're most welcome (New York accent)!!>

Thank you and I say the same, Dave!

  dzechiel: Hi, Dave,

I saw the retinal specialist yesterday and he told me that he was very pleased with his work (the cryopexy and laserpexy) and expects me to make a full and complete recovery.

There are still some clouds in the left eye, but they seem to be less and less each day.

Thanks for your well wishes.

  agb2002: <SuperPatzer77: <agb2002> Hey, you! How've you been doing? I hope you're doing just fine.>

Just surviving, thanks Dave.

By the way, it seems I missed a funny series of posts on May 5th...

  dzechiel: <<dzechiel> Hey, you!! How've you been doing? I hope your eyes are doing just fine.>

Still some faint cloudiness in the left eye, but most of the time I don't notice or think about it. The doctor told me it could take as long as a year to completely disappear. We will see.
