I was born in Denmark in 1960. From I was 16 to 23 chess was my life, nothing else mattered. Young people with total dedication will learn. So did I. My rating grew to about 2200, and the performance rating in my last participation in the Danish team tournament was 2365. Then, in 1983, I decided to drop the game completely. Chess had become too dominating, too absorbing. Should a man really allow himself to devote so much of his life to chess, a game so limited in itself?

After a hard thinking I said "no", and never participated in another tournament.

But I miss the drama and the excitement, something I never found to the same extent elsewhere. Also, the great feeling of excellence did not return. Finally, there were the many friends you got.

Chess is still a minor addiction, which I fight. No chess software on my PC and online play-chess sites are firewalled. Full Member

sfm: <Moszkowski012273: Gotta say the move I liked MOST outta this one was 25.Kb1...> Right! Cold as ice. White wants to play Qxh6 and mate, but Black will answer Qxc3+. So we simply move the king away. Black gets an extra tempo, but the plan can't be stopped in any good way.
   Nov-12-15 T Kahlert vs Paulsen, 1864
sfm: 12.-,c5 seems to lead to trouble. After 14.-,Qb6?,15.Th4 it is all over.
   Nov-09-15 C Aravindh vs J Herman, 2011 (replies)
sfm: It's Monday, and so a queensac: 1.Qg5!! White blocks the exit square on g5 for the black king. Also, taking off the coverage of h6 allows for Black's 2nd move. 1.-,QxQ Black probably has nothing better. 2.Kb2! Stopping blacks only hope of 2.-,Qc1 mate. 2.-,Kh6 Seeking ...
   Nov-07-15 Svidler vs Anand, 1999
sfm: Instead of accepting the draw White had of course no risk in trying 70.KxP. But he he didn't even imagine that there could be a win after 71.-,Nxa7.

sfm: 13.-,Qf7 iso. Qg4?? is off course better.
   Oct-26-15 Gelfand vs Kramnik, 1996 (replies)
sfm: En extraordinarily pretty ending.

sfm: Posters here, who write the same thing as I do, but submits just before me could get away with lenient jail sentences, though.
   Oct-07-15 Korchnoi vs F Destrebecq, 1979
sfm: A pity. White is overplayed, and seems to be in trouble after 25.-,g5. Black is obviously a very strong player.
   Oct-06-15 J Norgaard vs J S Andersen, 1981
sfm: Brilliant!! Fine by Johnny to play to mate. Should Black have tried 31.-,Qf6, to keep the White rook from d8?
   Oct-06-15 J Norgaard vs N Hirtsgaard, 1981
sfm: 12.f4! shows the problem with blacks position. The played 15.-,Rad8 seems much less attractive than -,Rae8 but "good it is not". After 16.-,Na5? it is "Hils Niertsgaard!" ("Hils" is a danish greeting, as if somebody was leaving, which he is) as late Peter Broendal quipped. :-)
