There is a clue unsolved right now on the Holiday Contest Clues Page!   [Official Contest Rules] User Profile

Member since Nov-10-04 · Last seen Dec-17-17
I'm a North American, but live in Guatemala.

In terms of chess, I'm an amateur of mediocre ability. I have loved chess since I was in grade school, but only played in one tournament, which was when I was a kid.

And yes, I do love cats.

   Dec-11-17 Karpov vs Kramnik, 1996 (replies)
catlover: <I prefer to name it "Offramp City" or "Offrampburg". Or even "New Offramp City"> I like "Offrampville". I hope the town has low taxes. If so, I might move there. This is a beautiful game. As for the pun, are Karpov and Kramnik single?

catlover: Dear Santa, A free premium membership to chess would be a purrrrfect gift. Merry Christmas to all!
   Dec-06-17 V Sherbakov vs Furman, 1955 (replies)
catlover: Didn't get the puzzle, but sure enjoyed seeing the elegant winning sequence unfold in what looked like a lost position for black.
   Dec-03-17 Yifan Hou vs M Muzychuk, 2016 (replies)
catlover: The 2016 Women's World Chess Championship was a bit like a famous Laurel and Hardy routine: Hou's on first.
   Dec-02-17 W Pollock vs Chigorin, 1889 (replies)
catlover: Chigorin's attack seemed to come from nowhere. Pollock was was definitely fried.
   Dec-01-17 O Bernstein vs Kotov, 1946 (replies)
catlover: I actually remembered this game and the solution. Was it really 12 years ago?
   Nov-26-17 E Kossak vs Dufresne, 1851 (replies)
catlover: This game makes the Evans Gambit look good. Leaves me wondering where exactly Dufresne went wrong.
   Nov-12-17 Filguth vs A De La Garza Madero, 1980 (replies)
catlover: <morfishine: Black should play <19...Qxd3> since after 20.Nxd3 20...Nxc4!!! and Black nets a pawn with tempo generating dangerous counterplay and the battle rages> In your line it also looks like 20...Bc2 wins back some of the lost material. Still, I'm sure it wouldn't ...
   Nov-11-17 A Chandra vs W So, 2016 (replies)
catlover: Tough puzzle. I almost never get close on Saturday puzzles, but I was more clueless than usual on this one.
   Nov-11-17 T Hay vs P Viner, 1963 (replies)
catlover: 21. Rh4...A very pretty finish. Make sun while the Hay shines.
