Since chess is 99% tactics, don't study them and you'll eliminate 99% of the work.

   Jun-04-16 Gashimov Memorial (2016) (replies)
 
ponaldpuck: Giri gives up, playoff time. If it were blitz Caruana would have a clear disadvantage, but I think he's got a pretty good shot in the rapids. Good luck gents.

ponaldpuck: Some of these puzzles might technically not give enough information - the possibility of castling, en passant, draw rules, etc. What if Qc2 was the third repetition of the position? Boom, instant draw. I know, the players would have to be morons, and perhaps you can logically ...
 
   Jun-01-16 Mamedyarov vs R Mamedov, 2016
 
ponaldpuck: Everyone's thinking it but no one wants to say it. Ok, I'll oblige. YAR's Revenge.

ponaldpuck: Nigelized (verb): To be judged by Nigel Short for alleged cheating at chess; to be Shorted.

ponaldpuck: Anand looking very dapper in this still from the Conclave: http://en.chessbase.com/post/bringi... Reminds me of the Cream of Wheat chef.
 
   Feb-23-15 M Vachier-Lagrave vs Tomashevsky, 2015 (replies)
 
ponaldpuck: Would have loved to see MVL take the bishop and make Tomashevsky prove he knows the B+N mate. I guess that would have only led to Tommy feeling one of two things: insulted...or humiliated.
 
   Nov-03-14 A Elwin vs R Hughes, 2014
 
ponaldpuck: I also figured ...Kf8 was the correct response. White is certainly better, but it's not game over by any means.
 
   Sep-02-14 Leko vs Nakamura, 2014 (replies)
 
ponaldpuck: Ok, I see it now. The official site using Stockfish reports: "1.71 White is much better Stockfish | Depth: 21" but just following one of its lines: 1.71 60. Rc2 Ra3+ 61. Kg2 Kf7 62. Rc7+ Kf6 63. Rc6+ Ke7 64. Kf2 Kf7 65. Rc7+ Kf6 66. Rd7 Rb3 67. Rd6+ Ke7 68. Rc6 Ra3 69. Rc7+ ...
 
   Aug-10-14 S Bjerke vs K Isgandarova, 2014 (replies)
 
ponaldpuck: Ouch. From totally winning, to instantly checkmated. Happens to all of us.
 
   Aug-10-14 Samuel Shankland (replies)
 
ponaldpuck: Insane. I've never even heard of this guy and he is steamrolling everyone. Granted he's played the lower-rated players to this point, but Polgar is no cream puff. How???
