I am from Maryland in the USA. I consider myself an average club player with a USCF rating of roughly 1800. My favorite chess players include Keres, Spassky, Nakamura, Morozevich, and Adams. I enjoy and I applaud its creators and administrators. You all provide a great service.

   Jan-13-18 Navara vs E Inarkiev, 2016 (replies)
transpose: Seems to me 20 ..d4 has to win, and I saw f3 as the best defense for white but after Nxf3+ i assessed the position as winning for black. As others point out, that isn't the best move, and the variations are numerous to see. I guess that is why this puzzle is rated very difficult.

transpose: I am surprised Keres never defeated Karpov, but then i only see two quick draws between the two. Too bad.
   Dec-27-17 Svidler vs Carlsen, 2017
transpose: Svidler forces a repetition.I find it interesting how Magnus is choosing off-beat (but double edged) openings as Black to claw his way to the top of the leaderboard in this tournament after suffering two losses early. Respect!
   Dec-23-17 P Potapov vs Morozevich, 2016 (replies)
transpose: Alexander Morozevich castled into mate?? I am skeptical about the score of this game.
   Dec-23-17 Adorjan vs J D Tisdall, 1981 (replies)
transpose: The dark square bishop plays a vital defensive role and the other bishop must protect e6 after a possible Bd5 by white. With this evaluation of the position, I considered four candidate moves: three involved moving the knight and also b4. I concluded that b4 looked most promising,
   Nov-27-17 London Chess Classic (2017) (replies)
transpose: Carlsen is the favorite but my underdog upset pick is So.
   Nov-23-17 Hikaru Nakamura (replies)
transpose: I root for Hikaru but I fear he has essentially given up his ambitions of ever becoming world champion. In the past year, he has stated that he won't be playing chess forever, and will instead seek to become an investor/trader full-time. His results have slipped--where he used to ...
   Jun-16-17 Altibox Norway (2017) (replies)
transpose: I rather admire Hikaru's all-out effort to win in the last round. He overextended himself but he tried for first place with all his might. No guts, no glory. He seems to care little for rating, and instead plays to win each tournament if he can. His fighting spirit is admirable.
   Mar-21-17 F Berkes vs M Neubauer, 2007 (replies)
transpose: I thought of Nxb5, and after ...Rd8 which seems best, I debated over Nd6 or Nd4, and I chose Nd4, with the thought of pushing the c pawn. Seems like a winning position for white. Perhaps Nd6 is stronger as it does appear to win the d pawn, but I was focused on getting my passed ...
   Mar-16-17 A Gupta vs R Praggnanandhaa, 2016 (replies)
transpose: <Cheapo><Ohio chess fan><eblunt> I also went with Bxc3 convinced I could make it work in time, but I did not contemplate 57 ...Rxc8. I do not know if <eblunt> 58 Qd6+ works--maybe it does, maybe not, but it obviously would be simple with the stronger ...
