remolino
Member since Apr-30-09 · Last seen Aug-25-12
I never had got a rating but estimate my slow chess rating is around 1900. Did not have enough time to devote to the game. I live in Mexico and enjoy solving the CG puzzles in the mornings prior to starting the daily routine. Find that CG is helping me improve my chess. I am now able to solve some Fridays and Saturdays, which before I generally could not.

Favorite players: Smyslov and of course, Tal.

Cheers,

remolino: <Abel Iranda> With all due respect, your line makes no sense vs. the line found by LTJ.

remolino: What an excellent puzzle - A defensive puzzle for a change! Very instructive. I recommend that CG continue to vary the themes of the puzzles for the benefit of us Masters, Experienced players and patzers alike.

remolino: Anyone with a Silicon Monster? What does the Monster say about the final, resignation position of game 8? Is it playable?

remolino: Simple Monday, but you need to look more than 1 move ahead: White wins with: 18.Qxd8+ Nxd8, 19.Rxd8+ Bf8 20.Bh6 and Black better resign.

remolino: While I agree that 17.Qxf8 is obviously the best move, mating in 2, doesn't 17.Re4 with the idea of 18.Rh4 also win easily? After 17.Re4, if 17... Qxd4 then 18.Bf6. For some stupid reason I missed the Q sac and went for this move, but I think it wins comfortably too.

remolino: Since it is Monday I found a way to sac the queen: 28. Qxe4 de 29. Rg8+ etc. Haha.

remolino: 37... Nxe5 seems natural to open the long diagonal. I think White does best to decline the sac and has a few options to do so, but Black should emerge ahead in the complications. White may counter sac his white square bishop but Black then would continue with Ng4

remolino: It took me longer than a typical Monday, maybe 20 seconds in all, knowing that a queen sac was probably involved. Beautiful though, shows power of two knights.

remolino: White should obvioulsy play on the long diagonal but 29.Qc3 is boring and more importantly, SLOWWWW. Can we get the rook out of the way with tempo? Yes we can. 29.Rg8+.
