Member since Aug-20-04 · Last seen Feb-10-14
Amateur club player; not rated, once told I was class "A". Like to play the French, Alekhine, or Slav Defense as black, usually steer for a Queen's Gambit as white. Favorite players Botvinnik, Capablanca.

pggarner: <MostlyAverageJoe: <Achilles87: I got this! Altho I'd prefer 34...Bxd4+ > This loses the game after Qxd4.>> After 35.Qxd4, Black has 35...Qg3+ followed by 36...Rc2 and White can't interpose.

pggarner: <Fuitz: nice...that will have taught him to never play french again :)> The French Winawer is sound, it's just that Black's 4...dxe4 was bad. I think Black would have been OK after either 4...c5, 5.Qg4 Ne7, 6.Qxg7 Rg8, 6.Qh6 cxd4 or 4...Nf6, 5.e5 Nfd7, 6.Qg4 g6

pggarner: I was trying to imagine what I would have played OTB, and it looks like 25.Bh5 followed by 26.Bxg6 would have gotten the job done for White with less risk. Neither 25...Qh6 nor 25....Nf4 can save Black in that case.

pggarner: <The only tricky line is 22.Bg7+,Kg8; 23.Rg1,Qc5; 24.Qg2,Bh3; 25.Bxf6+,Bxg2; 26.Rxg2X. And 23.Rg1 might not even be the best win here.> It seems to me that after 23...Qc5, White has 24.Rg3 which renews the threat with no more answers from Black.

pggarner: Intersting way to handle the Caro-Kann. Is 7.c5 the normal move in the Panov variation? It seems to relieve the pawn-tension in the center too early.

pggarner: It's amazing how many of the White king's would-be flight squares are covered by the Black knight; no matter where he turns, he's hemmed in by that stinking knight.

pggarner: I think Black would have been OK if he'd played 16...Qf7, threatening to steamroll through White's defenses with 17...d4.

pggarner: YouRang: <I agree with <MaxxLange> that white is busted. In fact, after 17.Kg2 Rxg4+ 18.Kxf3, black has: 18...Qh3+ 19. Ke2 (forced) d3+ 20. Kd2 Bxf2 (threat: ...Qe3+ & ...Qe1#) 21. c4 (make escape square) Qe3+ 22. Kc3 d2+ 23. Kb4 dxc1=Q And white is ...

pggarner: <mvnonup08: Does 22.Rd3 not work?> That's what I saw too ... Black is helpless without his dark-squared bishop, so 22...Bxh4, 23.Qxh4 followed by 24.Rh3, and 22... Bb7, 23.Bxb7 both lose for Black.

pggarner: Just had an idea for a different kind of puzzle, something along the lines of "Black (or White) to move and lose". In this case, 32...Bb7 might be the answer. I think that type of puzzle could be very instructive for those of us who are prone to make that one sudden mistake in a ...
