I am longtime clinical social worker, a journalist for a few years, and 2100 player (uscf)when I played in the early to mid-seventies.

   Mar-16-18 A Planinc vs D Baretic, 1968 (replies)
wtpy: Being a psychotherapist the last thing I want to do is contribute to any stigma associated with mental illness, but I could see how this game might have contributed to Planinc's psychiatric issues. And I am really sympathetic being a lifelong e4 player because I have had problems with ...
   Mar-16-18 Caruana vs Tomashevsky, 2013 (replies)
wtpy: Jfp, I think 41 Qg2 Qf5+ 42 Kh2 Qe5 or e6 43 Qc2 Qe7 44 h5 wins easily since black has no checks and white will win the g pawn. Black can try 41 ..Qe1 42 Qc2 Qe6+ 43 Kh2 but black still can't take e pawn.
   Mar-14-18 Xiao Zhang vs Hanxue Gao, 2017 (replies)
wtpy: Saw 12 Ne5 but didn't consider 12..Bb7, but when confronted with this move went with 13 Bh7 Kh1 14 Bb1 Kg8 15 g4 which should win, with white playing the maneuver Qf3 followed by Qh6 and breaking through on h file. Too much work for a Wednesday.
   Mar-08-18 Neo Zhu vs Shabalov, 2017 (replies)
wtpy: dfcx, Great minds and all that. Giving up the two rooks mates a couple moves faster than giving up the rook and bishop but both adhere to the winning formula of sac,sac,mate.
   Mar-07-18 Sasikiran vs S D Swapnil, 2017 (replies)
wtpy: So I saw 38 Be5 but did not consider Kg7 as the primary defense but instead 38.. Rb6 39. Qf5 Kg8 (white was threatening 39 Qg5,) 40 Bf6 Rf6 41Qh5. White has won a pawn and has some advantage but certainly not a win. In this line Olga recommends 39 Rh1+ Kg8 40 Qe4 as a better way to ...
   Mar-06-18 Tarjan vs H Bohm, 1979 (replies)
wtpy: I once lost a game at the beginning of a tournament because I thought the time control was at move 40 and it was actually 45 and I had dashed to the bathroom. My opponent was busted but not as bad as Bohm in this game;losing on time is the only thing that could explain this result.
   Mar-06-18 Mandolfo vs Kolisch, 1858 (replies)
wtpy: I am the only person that thinks this game might be made up?
   Mar-05-18 Karjakin vs Gelfand, 2018 (replies)
wtpy: c5 with the stinger of b5 upon black's capture is a cute tactic. Might make a good Thursday puzzle.
   Mar-05-18 Motylev vs M Godena, 2010 (replies)
wtpy: Got the first 2 moves but then went with 16 Qd5, which yields winning advantage but not as decisive as e5.
   Mar-03-18 M Mukhitdinov vs Botvinnik, 1967 (replies)
wtpy: Al wazir, I agree. Yesterday I was totally off track, didnt solve at bedtime, and stayed off track in the morning, even with the aid of coffee. Saw this quickly and completely. One of the things that makes this a simpler problem is that once the solution is glimpsed there are not any ...
