I'm a North American, but live in Guatemala.

catlover: I wonder if the Nisipeanu's resignation was a bit premature.

catlover: Maybe this unusual mating pattern should be called the "Sandrin mate".

catlover: This was a fun Sunday puzzle. I couldn't see my way through all the possible combinations and needed to use SF to even explore some of them. As <wililfly> said back in 2007: <I'm pleased just to get 20 ♗f4. >
   Jun-20-18 Topalov vs T Paehtz Sr, 2017 (replies)
catlover: Wow...this has been a rough week for me with the puzzles. I saw the three moves that were played in the game, but was not sure that white had a forced win. I see from <agb2002>'s analysis that white is better in all the variations. I guess I expected to find a solution where ...

catlover: Great game and pun. The movie to which the pun refers is a classic.
   Jun-19-18 Robson vs V Bhat, 2009 (replies)
catlover: Personally, I like "Bhat Man and Robson" best. Vinay Bhat made good use of the connected passed pawns.
