I have been playing chess for most of my life.Due to lack of competition and other factors,I never progressed beyond the novice level. I am however a big fan of the game and its history.

My favorite players are:Morphy,Lasker,Tal,Fischer,Kasparov,and Alekhine.

My favorite Chess movies are:Searching For Bobby Fischer AND Knight Moves. I also liked the Columbo episode that dealt with chess.(It was called:"The Most Dangerous Game"

My Favorite Movies are :GODFATHER ,The Fly,DEEP IMPACT,FIGHT CLUB, FINAL DESTINATION 3,and Friday the 13th Part VIII-Jason Takes Manhattan My favorite TV shows are CSI (all version),The SOPRANOS,FRASIER,SEINFELD,FAMILY GUY,and FRIENDS (ON DVD)

In Loving Memory of Seth Coy-9/7/1989 to 7/29/2009-he came early,left far too soon.

kevin86: How about this checkmate? It is possible,though it seems not. [DIAGRAM] The trick is that the board must be rotated 180 degrees or 90 degrees to the left. The mating move must be a promotion to a bishop.
 
   Jul-26-14 A Galkin vs I Kovalenko, 2013 (replies)
 
kevin86: I saw a quick mate if white accepted the sac...I didn't look at a possible declining of the sac.
 
   Jul-26-14 Szabo vs Benko, 1951 (replies)
 
kevin86: An extremely exotic sac!!! Queen forking rook and bishop on the bias.
 
   Jul-25-14 R Borngaesser vs H Seegers, 1984 (replies)
 
kevin86: The knight sacrifice was no surprise, the queen WAS! This game could be a future Monday puzzle.
 
   Jul-25-14 A Hodges vs A E Blackmar, 1892 (replies)
 
kevin86: I thought the expression was: Able was I ere I saw Elba- it is a palindrome. I could have been said by Napoleon, but he was French-so he probably never said it. The last move is indeed Mate!
 
   Jul-24-14 H Richards vs S Williams, 2003 (replies)
 
kevin86: I found the first few moves, but doubt I could finish it.
 
   Jul-24-14 F Alvarez vs Karpov, 1972 (replies)
 
kevin86: 31...Ng3 is checkmate despite which way the king will move.
 
   Jul-23-14 J D Tisdall vs Judit Polgar, 1988 (replies)
 
kevin86: Oops, white runs headlong into a back row mate.
 
   Jul-23-14 Ponomariov vs I Sokolov, 2007 (replies)
 
kevin86: Black is down a piece...and in trouble. Time to resign.
 
   Jul-22-14 M Sharif vs Kasparov, 1988 (replies)
 
kevin86: I guess Kaspy ran into a ringer. He should have shot the Sharif-lol

  WannaBe: Well, Happy Boithday!
Sep-26-07  willyfly: I am not FREE - I am affordable, reasonably priced Willy and I am guessing that the Fly you are referring to is the movie where the guy becomes part Fly while experimenting with a transporter device. FREE might be a third cousin twice removed or a second cousin thrice removed. Actually the name comes from a song - "Will he go round in circles? Will he fly high like a bird up in the sky?" (I needed to think of a name for an email account a long time ago.) As for the necktie? It just tells what kind of a guy I am. I am a croupier - that is - a dealer in a casino. So - as you can imagine I get teased a lot for the Willy name. It's all for fun. Thanks for stopping by my profile.

  kevin86: My 4500th post goes to me:Happy Birthday-glad to share the day with Arnold Palmer,who is 79 today.

I could have a birthday cake,but it would be a fire hazard.

A chess position that makes many a player quit,due to its complexity.

  kevin86: It does give the body some exercise to move it through,however.
Apr-20-09  BISHOP TAL: ya poor little fishes cant move it though even if they get off the hook, if they swallow the corn its checkmate for um and that is why its illegal to fish with corn...

  kevin86: I hate people that diss Family Guy! May they find a fudgie in their bed.
Jan-21-10  chessamateur: If you haven't seen it you should try watching Newsradio, it was a great show!
Jul-19-10  ahubers: Hey I follow this site a lot and just recently registered. Do you live in Iowa? I live on the west side of Iowa (will disclose the name of the small town I live in once further information is posted concluding that you are not a murderer, rapist, terrorist, or sociopath). I'd crap my pants if you lived in Iowa because I thought I was the only one in this remote state that played Chess daily.
Feb-24-11  theodor: <kevin86: Three punny quotes related to ears (and hearing)

1"Friends,Romans,countrymen- lend me your ears" : Julius Caesar

2 "I'm all ears":H Ross Perot,1992 presidential campaign.

3 "Do you hear me now?" :Verizon commercial.> here some drawings of mine about ears: http://www.flickr.com/photos/488478...

If you merge Hawkeyes and Buckeyes together you get a bunch of crossed eyes from OHIOWA.

Jun-23-11  bartonlaos: Hi <kevin86>.

On another thread we're trying to sort out definitions of Epaulettes mate, and origins of similar terms. You used a term "pseudo-epaulettes" here: A Planinc vs K Hulak, 1977 ...

If you have any references or further understanding would you mind sharing some of your information here: Topalov vs Karpov, 1998

Aug-24-12  Abulherar: Hi Kevin86 :)
By the way,I also like fischer,Morphy and Alekhine.

Seirawan vs Karpov 1982
