Brettwith2ts
Member since Sep-25-06 · Last seen Aug-05-22
Hi y'all - my name is Brett, I'm a CPA in the US, specializing in data analytics. When I was in high school I was a Class A/B player, and I represented my state at the Denker High School State Champions' tournament in my senior year. Haven't set foot in a tournament hall since.

I try to analyze games from time to time, but my best days are far behind me so don't be shocked if my analysis misses something blindingly obvious.

   Aug-04-22 Kasparov vs V Babula Sr, 2001 (replies)
 
Brettwith2ts: Openings with c5 and e5 always seem slightly suspect to me; I know it's not automatically unsound, but the weakness on d5 is not fun, especially against someone like Kasparov. The maneuver of the knight from f3 to e3 is interesting, bringing essentially all of White's pieces to

Brettwith2ts: 22. d3! and the Knight has to move - if Qxd3??, 23. Rxf4!, when white cannot capture back on f4 without losing the Queen to a knight fork.

Brettwith2ts: <OhioChessFan> wasn't it? It looked so off that my first reaction was panic - I don't expect IMs to make moves like that, so I assumed the mistake was mine somehow. I had to triple check every line before I could convince myself it was actually just a bad move.
 
   Dec-11-19 Lipke vs Andrey A Markov, 1890
 
Brettwith2ts: <Honza Cervenka> Absolutely agree. Around about move 21, when the last white Bishop comes off the board, things are pretty even and the only advantage I see for Black is the bishops. Of course, in these wide open positions, you would expect the Bishops to have the edge, ...
 
   Oct-31-19 Rossetto vs Najdorf, 1947
 
Brettwith2ts: Fun game. I love seeing a good positional struggle. 1. e4, c5 immediately leads to a fight over d4, which in mainlines of the Sicilian White resolves by playing a pawn to d4 and trading on that square. In the current game, Black pounces on that square with 8...Nd4!, ...
 
   Oct-24-19 P Copping vs B J Moore, 1956
 
Brettwith2ts: Odd final position. After 52. Bxg6, it's a pretty easy win for White, regardless of what Black tries. I wonder if there were other factors, time trouble etc., that we can't see from the raw moves.
 
   Apr-30-19 D Gormally vs Sutovsky, 2005 (replies)
 
Brettwith2ts: How strange. I was just looking at this game over the weekend, so Nf4 - Nh3# was fresh on my mind. Much more tricky, but still ultimately winning for Black, is:37. h4. Now, instead of 37. ...Nh3+?, Black must play 37. ...Ne2+ and 38. ...Bxf2, when the Knight and the Bishop will
 
   Nov-28-18 Carlsen vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
 
Brettwith2ts: <offramp: 12.Na4 Right that's it. Black is a pawn ahead. Game over.> Based on the rest of the match, that means it's a guaranteed draw...
 
   Nov-16-18 Carlsen vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
 
Brettwith2ts: <Diademas: Are we in tablebase territory now?> Biggest tablebase I know of is 7-piece, so we just need one more piece off the board
 
   Nov-13-18 A Stefanova vs M Makropoulou, 1994
 
Brettwith2ts: Interesting game! I want to come back and analyze this more later. I feel like Black was doing well despite the material imbalance, but 35. ... Na3?does a lot more than just hang a pawn - it brings White's rooks into play as well. And then 40. ... Nd4? was just a shame, no need
