Live in New York City. No rating - which is fortunate, since I'm not very good...

   Apr-17-04 Fischer vs C Garcia Palermo, 1970 (replies)
 
fatbaldguy: One mustn't forget that Garcia Palermo is a talented player, lately his ranking has been about 2500 or so but I think it's been higher. I don't know what it was at the time this game was played, but it's not so surprising that someone with the skills of a future IM (or maybe GM, ...
 
   Apr-09-04 Sajtar vs M Dietze, 1943 (replies)
 
fatbaldguy: Ehm - my French is not that great either - but I believe "grasse" means "greasy"... "grace" (with a "^" on the a) may apply here.
 
   Apr-08-04 J M Hodgson vs Blatny, 1993 (replies)
 
fatbaldguy: I must be missing something, but why does white win in the final position? It would seem that by playing the sequence ... Nb4 and ... Nd5, black would avoid any mate threats and maintain two passed pawns.
 
   Apr-04-04 F Zoubida Rachedi vs Ali J Ghuloum, 1991
 
fatbaldguy: Good point, and maybe it can even be improved with 23 ... Rd1, after which I don't think white can prevent both 24 ... R:d4 and 24 ... Bf5 - which makes me wonder which side should have really resigned...
 
   Apr-02-04 Burn vs Owen, 1874 (replies)
 
fatbaldguy: It's ok, but not the way Owen played it here... Does 13 ... Qe7 save black, or is it already too late?
 
   Apr-01-04 H Rosenvald vs T Pihlaja, 2001 (replies)
 
fatbaldguy: Actually, very often it's the players' score card that is in error (indicating + instead of #). Besides, it's not Chessgames' fault if black insists on getting massacred instead of resigning at move 18...
 
   Mar-24-04 Vera Papadopoulou (replies)
 
fatbaldguy: Now, now, aren't we supposed to be discussing chess prowess, instead of women's looks? What are these boards coming to? (also, Ksenya Rybenko is definitely cuter than Papadopoulou)
 
   Mar-23-04 Matulovic vs Suttles, 1970 (replies)
 
fatbaldguy: It may already be too late after 72 ... Rd2+ - if 73 Ke3 then 73 ... Re3+ 74 Kf4 (or anywhere else, but he cannot take the rook) R:b3 should be a draw (again the rook cannot be taken). I don't think the extra knight can win this endgame.
 
   Mar-23-04 J Hohmeister vs T Frank, 1993 (replies)
 
fatbaldguy: I confess it took me a while to get the point - 8 Ra3?? 10 f3??? But after 10 ... Bb3 I realized that this was a prearranged game rather than one where white (a 2500 player) might be drunk or something. I guess the two players, who had exactly the same rating, wanted to keep it ...
 
   Mar-19-04 Nunn vs C W Pritchett, 1986 (replies)
 
fatbaldguy: One argument in favor of the "non-predictability" of this puzzle is that Pritchett did not resign on 23 Nf6+. Pritchett is a pretty strong player - we are not talking NN here - and is surely familiar with chess etiquette and how one should not keep playing in a lost position. In ...
