Member since Sep-03-07
I'm a little frog who thinks dilbert is cool. I particularly like the dog.

- On the internet, everybody knows I'm a frog

Please use my player pages for any general chess topic, whether it's about games, ratings or great chess players. Feel free to dissect the few examples of my own amateurish attempts at the board too, of course. :o)

PS! Remember to check out the ultimate shark slayer champions ranking, too: Magnus Carlsen (kibitz #57936)

- Serious sportsmen within the field of mental arts should not leave the transmission of electrical impulses in the brain to chance (Hans Arild Runde (kibitz #5452))

frogbert: So, that's four in a row. Not too shabby.

frogbert: Heh. I played Opsahl about 45 years later. :)

frogbert: I'm not sure what I think is worse: catching up on even more half or not funny Giri-jokes, or the debate about whether the jokes are funny and how they should/could be improved. Get over it, please! Is everything worth saying about this tournament already said, or does anyone have ...
 
   Mar-18-16 Anand vs Svidler, 2016 (replies)
 
frogbert: <18 Rxe4! offers an exchange sacrifice which Svidler may have not expected and leads to a winning kingside attack.> Does it? Shallow enigine lines indicated that the game was only lost after 18... Nb3 - which slightly unexpectedly seems to lose by force. Anyway; smashing ...
 
   Feb-24-16 L E Johannessen vs H Adnoy, 2001 (replies)
 
frogbert: <morfishine: Thats strange though since we can find and post in various languages & symbols but <CG> doesn't make the effort for detail in the actual players name> Nah, it's not really an issue with chessgames.com. Ceegee follows FIDE's spelling of player names, and ...

frogbert: <AylerKupp> Thanks, you found the one I was thinking of - the most recent in your list of hits. --- [There has been] systemic inflation of 1-1.5 points a year the past 25 years, but it's a moot point anyway since ratings don't measure skills [directly] - only relative ...

frogbert: Excellent - thanks. :)
 
   Feb-12-16 B Lalic vs L Trent, 2008 (replies)
 
frogbert: After a quick look, I decided that I would've tried Ne4 like Komodo, but I saw nothing forcing in any line - and hey, that simply means that I solved the "puzzle". ;) There's nothing forced after the game's Qc2 either, so I was simply left puzzled ... Yeah, it was difficult to ...
 
   Feb-11-16 Sutovsky vs I Sokolov, 2005 (replies)
 
frogbert: <CbtD: Notes on alternatives: If 52 Kg3/h3, then 52 ... Qd3+ forces the fatal capture.> After 51... Qd8+?! 52. Kg3! Qd3+ 53. Kf2, defending the rook, the initial 51... Qd8+ has only made the black win harder.
 
   Feb-05-16 Carlsen vs Yifan Hou, 2016 (replies)
 
frogbert: <Playing 45. a5 instead would have drawn and during the game I was quite surprised by her mistake. When it happened it seemed quite obvious to me that a5 would hold. Well, it turns out that a5 indeed would have held, but not at all as easily as I had thought. White can still ...
