I live near Ft. Dix NJ, and a disabled Veteran from the US Army. My rating currently is 1428, but it is rising since I had four good tournaments this year. My favorite players are Capablanca, Petrosian, Portisch and Karpov. Full Member

   Tigranvp has kibitzed 26 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jul-22-16 S D Swapnil vs M Narciso Dublan, 2015 (replies)
Tigranvp: Took awhile to see the combination that finally exploited the twin weak squares e2 and f3
   Jul-19-16 R W Schutt vs P Hickey, 1966 (replies)
Tigranvp: Typical mating attack.
   Jul-11-16 Lenderman vs Nakamura, 2007 (replies)
Tigranvp: Zugzwang!
   Aug-28-06 The World vs A Nickel, 2006 (replies)
Tigranvp: If he plays 1. ... c5, head into the Closed Sicilian. It will favor slower and more positional play.
   Apr-21-06 Szabo vs Spassky, 1956
Tigranvp: Spassky should've tried 33. ... ab; 34. Nb3 leads to 34. ...Rd1+ settles the matter. 34. Qb3 allows 34. ...Rd2 and an equal position. Further exchanges of major pieces invite a draw. This position was in CL April 06 in Soltis' column starting move 34.
   Sep-07-04 N Speijer vs Couvee, 1955 (replies)
Tigranvp: 8. ... c6 is a positional blunder; 7. ... Nb6; followed by 8. ...a6 is better than 7. ...Qd8. By the way Black played the French he couldn't have been very familar with it.
   Aug-29-04 Tarrasch vs Romberg, 1893 (replies)
Tigranvp: The Queen sacrifice was necessary to bring the other pieces into the finale. The lack of mobility of B's pieces and the near proximity of W's was a helpful lead.
   Aug-25-04 J Belson vs R E Martin, 1933 (replies)
Tigranvp: Black is in zugzwang. 20. ...Nh6; 21. Qh6,Rh6; 22. Re8 ends the game.
   Jul-27-04 Graham K Burgess (replies)
Tigranvp: The reason Burgess's record is poor, simply is he writes too many books and doesn't get enough sleep. That man is a prolific writer. I have also noticed some opening lines he frowns upon really aren't that bad. I think some of his works are slanted by his personal views.
   May-06-04 L Vizantiadis vs O Sarapu, 1972 (replies)
Tigranvp: 54. ... Bh3 is unstoppable, the only reasonable response is resigning. The key square is g1 and Black has that covered effectively. All other potential threats by White are hollow.
