Anything is possible until the contrary has been proved

yadasampati: <An Englishman> You are not the only one. It might be similar to a problem of many modern scientists. They have a high degree of intelligence but sometimes fail to see simple explanations, because they are looking in the wrong direction.

yadasampati: Intuition did it again. Bxe6 came into my mind in a few seconds, with Bxa7+ somewhere in the continuation. The breaking down of blacks pawn structure and the initiative it creates were enough for me to go for it.
   Mar-19-17 E Tate vs A Chibukhchian, 2013 (replies)
yadasampati: My first thought was: break that wall. And it was right. No need for complex analysis, just plain intuition. It took me 5 seconds.
   Mar-17-17 Stefansson vs Carlsen, 2007 (replies)
yadasampati: And why not 26. Qxc3? The answer: Rd1+ 27. Kg2 (forced) Nxf4+ 28. Kf3 Rd3+ (or 28. Kg3 Ne2+) and again black wins the queen.

yadasampati: When you see an unfinished wall, tear it down! That is what Rxf7+ does :-)
   Mar-10-17 E Tate vs R Mandl, 1987 (replies)
yadasampati: Are there any other sane moves than 39. Rxh5? How can this be qualified as difficult?
   Mar-06-17 K P Surya vs K Rathnakaran, 2015 (replies)
yadasampati: <lost in space> In contrast to you, i feel more like Bob Geldof: I Don't Like Mondays, because there is no challenge in solving the very easy problems
   Mar-05-17 A Raykhman vs T Heinemann, 2016 (replies)
yadasampati: Intuition did it again. I saw 12. ... Rxe2+ and the following Qe8 within 15 seconds. These moves were not particularly hard to find, and i am a mediocre player. It is clear that the king cannot take the rook, because after the queen check on e8 the b5 pawn is hanging. The hard ...
   Feb-19-17 Spassky vs Beliavsky, 1988 (replies)
yadasampati: 25. Nxg6 and Qh6 were pretty simple to find, but then it gets complicated. I was thinking of Rd3 (with the idea of Rg3), but i overlooked the possible answer Qc6 (covering the g6-pawn and preventing Bc7), the implications of Nf5 (enabling Ng7 after Qxg6+) and the later Bc1. Not ...

yadasampati: <An Englishman>: "(...) because it looks so cool." I would say that is intuition :-) For more or less the same reason, it took me about 15 seconds to find Qxc5, the following Rxd8+ and Rd7. I think that humans have one advantage over computers, and that is that we can ...
