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: Black may have seen a mirage with 7.-Nxf2. 7.-Qxe7 would have been OK.

paavoh: <I used to look at the Moro's games but lately they are all so bad it is not worth analizing any more.> And yet he could produce, in the same tournament, a gem like this: Morozevich vs Mamedyarov, 2013

paavoh: Yes, 11. - e6 would have been much better than 11.- h6.
   Apr-09-18 Huebner vs Ljubojevic, 1985
paavoh: Maybe better also 22.-Rxf2 23.Nxf2 f6 to hit the center?!

paavoh: "Archetypal error" by Jung, 24.- Rg4?
