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

   Nov-12-18 Van Wely vs Degraeve, 2017 (replies)
catlover: One foot was in DeGreave, the other on a banana peel.
   Nov-11-18 Botvinnik vs Portisch, 1968 (replies)
catlover: What a beautiful game. Portisch must have thought, "I can't believe Botvinnik took the poisoned pawn on c7. Now his rook is trapped." And then an irresistible attack seems to come out of nowhere.
   Nov-10-18 Van Wely vs Z Kozul, 2015 (replies)
catlover: Makes sense. Thanks, <Sargon>.
   Nov-03-18 M French vs D Fryer, 2015 (replies)
catlover: The pun sure fits the game.
   Oct-31-18 E Bone vs P Biyiasas, 1971 (replies)
catlover: Bone actually had a win against Bobby Fischer. Granted, it was in simultaneous exhibition.
   Oct-29-18 Fischer vs J Gloger, 1964 (replies)
catlover: I love the pun!
   Oct-26-18 Nezhmetdinov vs Suetin, 1947 (replies)
catlover: This is definitely not a boring game. Nezhmetdinov's biography on CG says that he was "renowned for his imaginative attacking style."
   Oct-21-18 P K Wells vs Tim P Wall, 2018
catlover: I guess this is what is known as a miniature.
   Oct-14-18 F Vallejo Pons vs L Deglmann, 2008 (replies)
catlover: It's good to see Vallejo Pons on the winning side of a POTD.
   Sep-12-18 E Bebchuk vs Bronstein, 1974 (replies)
catlover: <Sally Simpson: Hi beatgiant, "But what kind of pun could uniquely reflect this game?" HeMateMe's 'Bechuk-a-lou-bop' then 'hop hop hop.' The Knight hopping from f4-h3-f2-d1. (I'll get my coat.)> Lol! Yep. We're a tough audience.
