Learned the game at age of 7, played OTB in the 1980's, converted to CC in mid-1990's, now just following what is going on at the top.

Does this path reflect a decline in my chess abilities or increased demands at my day job in sciences?

Still, I feel a spark when seeing a great game.

Many thanks for Santa and the good people at Chessgames for giving me a membership for the year 2015!

paavoh: @JohnBoy: <Has the issue of why not 14...Nxh4 been resolved?> 14...Nxh4 15. Bxh4 Bxh4 16. Bxd5 Kf8 17. Bxc6 bxc6 18. Rd1 seems to leave Black in a bad way for the endgame?

paavoh: It is terrible what a pawn center and a lead in development can do to Black here.

   Oct-09-18 J M Kappler vs S Luce, 1992

   Sep-17-18 Glek vs Chiburdanidze, 1983 (replies)
paavoh: @<landshark>: After 24.Bc5+, 24...Kg7 25.Bd4 Re6 26.Qh2 Kf8 27.Qxh7 Rd8 28.f4 also looks good for White. An interesting position.

paavoh: Despite the last round loss to Esipenko, he has won the World U20 Championship. Congratulations!
   Sep-06-18 Bareev vs Kasparov, 1994 (replies)
paavoh: <I don't believe Bareev has ever defeated Kasparov at classical chess.> You are right, the lifetime record seems to be +8 =5, -0 for Kasparov.
