Freelance sawbones and random proctologist working points west and the upper US. Writers I'd be sure had full anesthesia before operating on them: Paul Bowles, Nathaniel West, Saki, Kerouac, Celine, Hamsun, Bukowski, Lardner, Flaubert, Heller and Parker. Full Member

docbenway: Much of what Mueller will be announcing at the end will be perfectly legal, mundane stuff that Russia did, and which was also done by many other state and/or individual parties across the globe. Very little of it will be novel, unknown stuff that only Russia perpetrated. Even the ...
   Oct-03-17 Short vs Ljubojevic, 1987 (replies)
docbenway: mel gibson: "This is silly - I saw that line but there's no way I'd swap my Queen just to be a pawn up. And there's no way I'd resign by being a pawn down." Well, to me it's a lot more than a pawn. The only defense to losing the f4 pawn will be Bg3 turning it into a big pawn and ...
   Sep-12-17 F Rhine vs D Burris, 1997 (replies)
docbenway: Stared at this for a couple of minutes wondering why c4 till 29...Bb6 hove into view.
   Aug-06-17 W So vs Carlsen, 2017 (replies)
docbenway: Frankly, GM So's game here just sucked. First the howler 19.Bf4 allowing the rook in and then following the chimera on the d file which let the black queen in and the game was over barely before it began. I just looked at So's blitz victory over Kasparov last year which was/is ...

docbenway: HeMateMe:"three passed pawns add up! I wonder why So allowed that, it was a time bomb." I bet he's just too polite to horn into someone else's game.

docbenway: Too easy.
   Jul-17-17 Flohr vs Bogoljubov, 1931 (replies)
docbenway: I will often solve the Monday puzzle while putting my glasses on but this took a couple of minutes of trial and error and I finally glommed onto that rook move out of desperation and it fell into place.
   Jul-08-17 Isak Orri Karlsson vs G Gislason, 2016
docbenway: 11...Bxb1 leaves black up a piece and poised to harvest a pawn.
   Jun-29-17 M Vachier-Lagrave vs Ivanchuk, 2017
docbenway: Amazing end game display, especially with the time control.
   Jun-20-17 Lahno vs L Javakhishvili, 2017 (replies)
docbenway: I was puzzling what white would do if black played 27...Kh6 and then saw Qg7+ and that would be curtains. Nicely calculated attack.
