Member since Jul-06-08
I currently reside in Ohio, utilize chess as a form of play therapy, and enjoy sitting at the feet of the masters, especially Capablanca, Lasker, Morphy, Nimzowitsch, Fischer, Petrosian, Tal, Bronstein, Keres, Smyslov, Gligoric, Nezhmetdinov, Geller, Wenzhe, Karpov, and Alekhine. Their wisdom is immense and timeless...

   Sep-25-14 Kasparov vs Shirov, 1994 (replies)
birthtimes: 23...Bh6 subjected this bishop to the status of a relative non-existent worker, as Lasker would say. 23...Bd8 looks like a better place to do some useful work as it covers the b6 square. Rudolf Spielmann also mentions this principle--as well as the importance of a created passed ...
   Sep-25-14 L Van Vliet vs Nimzowitsch, 1907 (replies)
birthtimes: This game is annotated by Nimzowitsch in his book entitled, "Blockade." I suspect he would have played 20...Ne8 if White had played 20.e5!?
   Sep-24-14 Nimzowitsch vs A Nilsson, 1924
birthtimes: This game is annotated by Nimzowitsch from moves 33 to 47 in his book entitled, "Blockade"!!! Very instructive annotation!!!
   Nov-10-13 Anand vs Carlsen, 2013 (replies)
birthtimes: fischer random chess!!!!!!!
   Oct-31-13 Karpov vs Zhao Xue, 2013
birthtimes: csmath, it's obvious you do not know that these time controls suit Karpov to a T. Your ignorance is blinding...
   Sep-14-13 A Ushenina vs Yifan Hou, 2013 (replies)
birthtimes: White is positionally stronger after a line such as 8. a3 Bxc3+ 9. bxc3 cxd4 10. cxd5 exd5 11. cxd4 Qa5+ 12. Bd2 Qxd2+ 13. Qxd2 Nxd2 14. Kxd2 Nc6 15. Ne2
   Sep-11-13 Ushenina - Hou Women's World Championship (2013) (replies)
birthtimes: It would be nice if chessgames would post the time of the players each move so that we don't have to go to some other site to do so...
   Jul-30-13 I Nepomniachtchi vs A Moiseenko, 2013 (replies)
birthtimes: How does a person get to be 2700 and not know how to draw an easy rook and pawn ending??? Black's 63rd move was not a difficult one to make...
   Jul-26-13 Geller vs Fischer, 1962 (replies)
birthtimes: Also 25.Qd3 presents more problems for Black than 25.Qe2. For example, if Black plays 25...Bg5 then 26.Nc6 with a very high probability of Black's queen getting trapped in the middle of the board (via White's Ra5!!!). One line runs 26...h6 27.h4! Bxh4 28.Ra5!
   Jul-26-13 Geller vs Fischer, 1962 (replies)
birthtimes: Geller owned Fischer!!! Geller used Lasker's strategy against Fischer!!!
