Hello. My name is Connor and I am a dedicated amateur chess player currently living in the U.S.

Rating: ~2000 (Class A/Expert)

Favorite players: Steinitz, Botvinnik, Capablanca, Petrosian, Karpov, Korchnoi, Larsen, Tarrasch, Chigorin, Fischer, Kramnik, Carlsen

I highly recommend the Yugoslav chess periodical Šahovski Informator (Chess Informant) for quality analysis on hundreds of current games by many of the world's leading players. I have been reading it for many years and have yet to find a more useful resource.

0ZeR0: <AylerKupp> I’m always of the opinion that the more chess played, the merrier. Why play (and win in brilliant fashion) one match when you could do twenty. True, it may not be in Google’s best interest to keep displaying their incredible technology, but it would be in chess ...
   Nov-14-20 Kramnik vs Adams, 1996
0ZeR0: What a fantastic technical struggle in the endgame this one is.
   Nov-14-20 Kramnik vs Leko, 2001
0ZeR0: This game gives off the impression of effortlessness on the part of Kramnik. Just one strong and logical move after the other, ending in inevitable defeat for his opponent.

0ZeR0: Wow! What a game! Many thanks to <fredthebear> for pointing it out to me.

0ZeR0: <HeMateMe> I wholeheartedly agree with this sentiment. At times trying to understand why certain moves were played at the top level can leave me scratching my head. I need to be extremely thorough and conscientious in analyzing. Sometimes it’s better to go for games whose ...

0ZeR0: Hello, <kingscrusher> I enjoyed watching your video annotation of this game and reading your comments. Thank you for sharing them. I am actually a longtime fan of yours and often watch your streams on Twitch. Keep up the great work! My own personal analysis seems to concur with ...
   Nov-01-20 A Wang vs C Yip, 2020
0ZeR0: Subtle positional maneuvering (and a slight mistake) allows black to eventually exchange the key light-square bishop. Afterward we see c4 quickly fall and white's whole position crumbles. It appears better defense could be had by simply holding on to the light square bishop at all ...
   Nov-01-20 T Abrahamyan vs C Yip, 2020 (replies)
0ZeR0: There are some very slick pawn moves in this one which make quite the impression. Starting with the pawn break 19...d5! 20.Qf3 c4! 21.exd5 e4! resulting in white's queen being trapped and subsequently a crushing attack. Nice calculation by Carissa.
   Nov-01-20 Stein vs A Matanovic, 1965 (replies)
0ZeR0: This game is used in the Netflix series The Queen's Gambit in a game between the characters Vasily Borgov and Elizabeth Harmon. However, in the show instead of 3...g6 black plays 3...Qb6 first, but it appears to transpose into the same opening. Instead of 9...Bg4 Matanovic could have ...
   Nov-01-20 C Yip vs I Krush, 2020
0ZeR0: I concur. Perhaps draws would not get such a bad rap if more were like this one!
