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: Sorry to hear the news. RIP, Dom.
   Jan-16-19 Korchnoi vs J Silver, 1977 (replies)
catlover: A very nice win! And from <jsilver>'s post above, it seems Korchnoi was indeed annoyed.

catlover: Thanks for the additional puzzle, <Penguincw>.

catlover: Happy new year to Chessgames and all those who read and post here. May 2019 bring you all many blessings.
   Dec-23-18 S M Globus vs S Von Freymann, 1909 (replies)
catlover: If I was in Globus' shoes, the sight of those two connected passed pawns on the sixth rank would have made me sweat.
   Dec-21-18 Bronstein vs Fritz, 1991 (replies)
catlover: 15...Re8 is in fact better than Fritz' move. At first I thought that 15...Re8, 16. Nxe7 Rxe7 17. Qd7 won. It looks like black will lose the rook and the game. But Stockfish came up with 17...Nb4! So if 18. Qc8+ Re8, 19. Bxb4+ Qxb4 20. Qxe8+ Kxe8, 21. cxb4 and it is equal. Computers
   Dec-18-18 Boleslavsky vs Polyak, 1940 (replies)
catlover: With three losses his only legacy in the CG database, this hapless Polyak appears to be cousin to NN. <possesses more than one yak> LOL! That explains it! He was corrupted by bourgeois values.
   Dec-16-18 Capablanca vs Newark Evening News, 1931 (replies)
catlover: <CHC 34. g6 looks the solution to a problem in "Pawn Power"> True. The resulting position reminds me of Hans Kmoch's book on that topic.

catlover: <WannaBe> Your "Dear Santa" post is hilarious!
