I'm a middle-aged patzer whose small sum of strategic knowledge is thoroughly neutralized by slow play, failure to calculate deeply enough, and above all, simple tactical errors.

hucknoog: An "r" is basically a vowel in Croatian that sounds like "er" with a slight roll on the end.

hucknoog: If we wind up with a R+P vs B, let's be sure we don't wind up in a situation like today's Game of the Day: J W Baird vs Spielmann, 1905

hucknoog: At first I thought why not 25 Rxf7, but then I saw 25...Bg1+ 26.Kh1 Qxh3

hucknoog: Taking another look at 40.Kg1 Rd8 41.Re3 Qxf4 42.Rf3 Qxe5 43.Rf2 Qe3, if GMYS responds 44.Qe2, I think we still look pretty good with 44...Qxe2 45.Rxe2 Bc4. It doesn't look he'll be able to stop the d pawn without going down a piece. Any thoughts?

hucknoog: Thank you <RV> and <GoldenKnight> - I see that 38...Qc8 39.b5 axb5 40.a6 Re7 41.a7 Rb7 42.Rc3! wins handily.

hucknoog: Why should black trade off bishops after 32...Qc4 33.Bf6 ? Why not 33...Bf8? Now white has his rooks and queen blocked off by his newly "freed" bishop, so does the bishop really have any good work to do at that point over on the kingside?

hucknoog: <Sneaky> <But one still might be inclined to suggest that stalemate should be a win... for the side being stalemated! I've heard it said that in some parts of the world, a long time ago, that was the fashion..> Apparently Philip Stamma published a chess problem in 1745 ...

hucknoog: <4daluvofchess> <Also, I am surprised few people have pointed out that it is impossible to "force stalemate" in a lost position.> For all you chess historians out there - as <Sneaky> alluded - once upon a time (in England) the stalemated player was awarded a WIN! ...

hucknoog: Does Black stand to gain anything by challenging the f-file with 31 Qg5 (or R1f2) Rf8, thereby offering a double rook tradeoff?

hucknoog: What's the matter with 9...Nxe4?
