diagonalley
Member since Nov-25-09 · Last seen May-24-18
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: <phony> ... i too went for the rook check first :-( ... true, it wasn't conclusive, but the engine did score it a +0.7

diagonalley: hmmmmmm "BFTC" (!?) ... that had me puzzled for a while (had it been "BTFC" i reckon i would have got the gist, as it would be a means of escaping the attentions of the dementors) ... so in the end i had to google it ... sad!

diagonalley: simply breathtaking... (although it's hard to guess how far ahead white had calculated)
 
   May-12-18 V Gashimov vs Gelfand, 2009 (replies)
 
diagonalley: ....hmmmmm... the engine derives a significant, but not overwhelming, advantage after white's 11th... maybe gashimov considered the romantic cavalry charge simply irresistable(?)
