Occasional chessplayer
Like barren, logical games and absurd, Tal-style games, not anything in between Enjoy observing politics, including chess politics
Enjoy conspiracy theories, including chess conspiracy theories, don't necessarily believe them - or reject them outright, for that matter

   Oct-06-05 Larsen vs Petrosian, 1966 (replies)
 
weirdoid: The winner generally deserves/ed to win, but I cannot help wondering, wouldn't 35. Rxd3 (returning the exchange) have given white a better chance to survive? Would black still have a superior position instead? I feel like it is around even. Any view on that?
 
   Oct-02-05 E Formanek vs Browne, 1970 (replies)
 
weirdoid: Why not 37 ... Rxh4?
 
   Sep-23-05 Ivanchuk vs Dolmatov, 1986
 
weirdoid: Well, regardless of whether it was axb5 or Qxb5, white is a piece down. He does get two pawns (and I would play on with white), but I don't think it is enough compensation, so it is not surprising that Ivanchuk simply resigned - to my understanding he tends to resign early.
 
   Sep-01-05 I Samarin vs Antoshin, 1985 (replies)
 
weirdoid: This is item No. 28 in http://www.xs4all.nl/~timkr/chess2/... - Very funny, until we realize that many players (perhaps me included) would have resigned with white (this world is indeed very funny for those who only watch). You may like to explore ...
 
   Sep-01-05 A Dokutchaev vs A Anastasian, 1994 (replies)
 
weirdoid: <Anastasia> Wow, is this real? Is this GM Anastasian himself? Wonder how many GM's are lurking around chessgames.com :)
 
   Aug-09-05 Karpov vs C S M Franco, 2001
 
weirdoid: I think black did see 24 ... Qxd5 25. Re8+, but did not see until the last moment that after 25... Bf8 26. cxd5 Rxc2 27. Rxa8 or 26 ... Rxe8 he was down a piece. Oops..
 
   Aug-09-05 Fischer vs Portisch, 1962 (replies)
 
weirdoid: Amazing. I have to admit I am weak at endgames (etc.), but I wonder, at what point did black lose? The endgame looked pretty even to me until move mid-40's, but by move mid-50's black was completely lost. Did black blunder in between, or did white simply played extremely well and ...
 
   Aug-09-05 V Tukmakov vs Tal, 1969 (replies)
 
weirdoid: Um, what is going on? Is it so hopeless already that there is no point in continuing the play? After, say, 29. Be2 Qf5 30. Nf2 Rf8 etc. sure it looks severe - but isn't there still a way to continue for a few moves? Or, is it considered better to "escape" that perdition by ...
 
   Aug-05-05 P Openshaw vs P Hummel, 1999 (replies)
 
weirdoid: <psmith> To me looks like after 13 ... gxf6 white is busted (which is probably why Keres played 11. Bxf6 first). I wonder what the experts think - any surprising moves at white's disposal?
 
   Aug-03-05 Lajos Portisch (replies)
 
weirdoid: This is not fully chess related, but I cannot refrain from posting it. Was Portisch the strongest (again, strongest, not best) chessplayer of his day? You judge! http://www.ex.ac.uk/~dregis/DR/Stor...
