I'm a blitz player. I play on the Free Internet Chess Server (FICS) and ChessTempo.

I take special interest in openings. My opening repertoire consists of dull, boring lines that exploit the opponent's desire to play chess.

   Jun-04-15 R Vera vs M Leon Hoyos, 2011 (replies)
BlackWaive: I went with <34...Qc6>, which <almost> works. White's only defense is <35. c5!>: 34...Qc6 35. c5 Bh3 36. Bxh3 and now 36...Ne2+ is unplayable due to the availability of 37. Qxe2.

BlackWaive: I found 23. Qd3 right away, but only because I recently saw a similar tactic in Kamsky vs Svidler, 2011 .
   Jun-02-10 Z Nilsson vs E E Book, 1946 (replies)
BlackWaive: It took me quite a bit of time to discover white's weak back rank. You'd think the black queen would be involved in the mating attack somehow, but it turns out she's used as the bait, otherwise forking knight and rook. Interesting.

BlackWaive: I pondered over the puzzle position for nearly 20 minutes, but most of this time was spent convincing myself that Black is winning after 10. Bxf6. I'm still unsure of the exact continuation to follow.
   May-17-10 I Krush vs Akobian, 2010 (replies)
BlackWaive: Akobian missed 86...Rd2, which wins by force: <87. Rxf7 Rxd4> is an easy win for Black, since White's king will be permanently cut out of the action. <87. Rf4 Ke6 88. Kf1 f5 89. Ke1 Rh2!> and Black will make headway into White's camp. I believe that Akobian's ...
   May-14-10 K Aseev vs V Nevostrujev, 2002 (replies)
BlackWaive: Spent about 20 minutes on this puzzle position. I immediately noticed that Black must prevent 32. Rxd7 or his position falls apart. After determining that 31...Rxd1+ was unproductive, I decided that the puzzle involved a more forcing solution. I moved on to consider Qxg2+, ...
   Mar-30-10 Kotov vs Smyslov, 1950 (replies)
BlackWaive: 42...Rf2+! is a great way to take advantage of the stalemated King, forcing open the g-file for the Queen.
   Feb-17-10 Larsen vs Miles, 1979 (replies)
BlackWaive: I spent a good deal of time trying to make 60. Rb3+ Ka7 61. Rb7+ Ka8 work for White, to no avail. Then I considered pushing the pawn, and saw the zugzwang. Funny how I didn't immediately consider pushing the pawn...

BlackWaive: Dear Santa, They're always after me lucky charms!
   Sep-03-09 S Savchenko vs Alexey Ivanov, 1991 (replies)
BlackWaive: Difficult to find a candidate move, suggesting a sharp tactical line. However I only looked at 37. Ne6+.
