diagonalley
Member since Nov-25-09 · Last seen Feb-21-18
i live with my wife in hampshire, england... i love the game, but sadly my standard of play is highly erratic! ... (also i get much frowned upon for my allegiance to descriptive notation! - which has always seemed to me to be utterly intuitive)

diagonalley: <diagonalley>: nul points (again) :-(

diagonalley: recapturing the black rook with white's KNP still wins... (but it's a deal more protracted)
 
   Feb-12-18 Blackburne vs NN, 1898 (replies)
 
diagonalley: a very neat snare where black declines the rook :-) ... good monday puzzle
 
   Feb-08-18 Csom vs Yusupov, 1982 (replies)
 
diagonalley: hmmmmm... after a minute's gaze, the prospect of three connected passers for a rook showed up... theoretically that's a no-brainer... (so time to test the theory!)

diagonalley: wow! ... completely missed this one - (went looking for a more dramatic initial move) ... excellent puzzle!
 
   Jan-26-18 I Kovalenko vs Fressinet, 2016 (replies)
 
diagonalley: hmmmmm... (not that difficult for a friday)... 31.R(1)-N7 is an elegant exploitation of the pin on the black knight and the black king's cramped quarters
 
   Jan-23-18 Hort vs Gligoric, 1971 (replies)
 
diagonalley: <areknames> & <cocker> totally agree - more of a wednesday level puzzle

diagonalley: nothing to add what <lost in space> said
 
   Jan-13-18 Navara vs E Inarkiev, 2016 (replies)
 
diagonalley: ok, but even if you get the first move, the continuation/s seem damn near impenetrable. <diagonalley>: nul points :-(

diagonalley: <phony> nice one :-)
