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. Full Member

catlover: Nice game. Anyone with a last name like Kats can't be all bad.
   May-19-18 Kramnik vs Shirov, 1998 (replies)
catlover: <rogl: <catlover: I don't get the pun..."Right to Play"? Is there some back story about the game to which the pun refers?> Yes, they were playing for who would challenge Kasparov. Shirov went on to win this match so naturally Kramnik got the honour.> Thanks, ...
   May-10-18 V K Neverov vs M Debarshi, 2017 (replies)
catlover: I went with the win of a pawn by harassing the black queen: 27. Rb5 Qa6 28. Rxd5 Rxd5 29. Qxd5. Stockfish says it puts white up +1.11, but it sure falls short of 27. Bb5.
   May-10-18 D Byrne vs Reshevsky, 1956 (replies)
catlover: I'm not sure where Reshevsky went astray in the opening, but by move 14 that pin from the bishop on f4 was making life uncomfortable.

catlover: "The Island of Dr. Moreau" was an excellent Sci-FI movie, especially the 1996 version with Val Kilmer.
   May-04-18 G Guseinov vs M Ezat, 2008 (replies)
catlover: When I saw 25. Rxe7+ and looked at 25...Kxe7 and 25...Rxe7, I thought, "Did oversleep and wake up on Monday?" But then I saw 25...Qxe7 and thought, "Nope. It's Friday, all right."
   Apr-22-18 P Lafuente vs H H Hernandez, 2004 (replies)
catlover: <FSR: What do you recommend?> Looks like Rc2+ draws.
   Apr-21-18 B Kreiman vs L Christiansen, 2002 (replies)
catlover: Agreed. I got this one. That probably means that it is not "very difficult". :-)
   Apr-21-18 A Stefanova vs R Tozer, 1997 (replies)
catlover: <morfishine: Pathetic game by Black, looks like NN incognito.> Yeah, 7...Nxf2 was an NN sort of move.

catlover: Shamkir was actually settled by Martians.
