I was a 1500 player in high school 40 years ago, and I am still. I love about half of chess, unfortunately it's not the half that makes you a really good chess player.

   Jul-08-19 Ivan Buljovcic vs Maric, 1967 (replies)
petemccabe: At the final position, it says "Three Time Repetition Claimable." But Black resigned. That would be quite the blunder. Is that message correct? It doesn't seem that the final position occurred previously.
   Jun-01-19 Kramnik vs Carlsen, 2017 (replies)
petemccabe: Slug is a synonym for punch, or hit. So a slugfest (usually one word) is a contest with lots of blows landed by both sides.
   Jun-01-19 K Gulamali vs A Tari, 2016 (replies)
petemccabe: A Tari Breakout.
   Feb-10-19 K Commons vs P Peev, 1976 (replies)
petemccabe: I'm not used to the pun providing a clue to the puzzle.
   Jan-26-19 S Khademalsharieh vs A Donchenko, 2019 (replies)
petemccabe: Very surprised to see white offering a draw as early as move 20. Was this one of those things where it's the last round of a tournament and SK only needed a half-point to ensure some favorable result? Or did I misunderstand what happened?
   Jan-16-19 Korchnoi vs J Silver, 1977 (replies)
petemccabe: I'm not too surprised that anyone who got as close to World Champion as Korchnoi did would turn out to be overly competitive. I can't imagine what else would motivate anyone to put in the work required.
   Dec-29-18 H Bohm vs A Kochyev, 1977 (replies)
petemccabe: Lower the boom! Maybe.
   Nov-03-18 M French vs D Fryer, 2015 (replies)
petemccabe: Is Fryer any good? Cause he doesn't seem very good. I'm sure he could beat my 1500 ass, but this game has two almost beginner level mistakes.
   Nov-03-18 K Lerner vs M Roiz, 2008 (replies)
petemccabe: I'm with Stacase; when I was playing through, and black played 22 ... Bxa1, I was surprised. Too many pieces had to be cleared from that diagonal for me to see them all. But quite a combination to win, ultimately, a single pawn.
   Oct-31-18 E Bone vs P Biyiasas, 1971 (replies)
petemccabe: It almost seems like Bone must have walked away from the table at move 26, and someone else came up and played Qxa7, which is so obviously bad that even I, who rate maybe 1500, immediately saw it as a blunder. How could a master play that move?
