so my dad taught me to play chess when i was like, 5 or 6. i never beat him. i stopped playing for years and years, ever since i discovered music. recently, for unexplained reasons, i developed an obsessive interest in chess again. basically i'm starting from scratch, since i never became good to start with, although i have a basic idea of concepts and such. so wish me luck!

ChessPieceFace: <Once> I've said it before, but it must be said again: I LOVE your analyses!!! As for me, I might be getting a bit chess-blind. I spent forever looking for candidate moves...for white. When I gave up and looked at move 22, I noticed the position was slightly different ...

ChessPieceFace: Oh my gosh! I got it (sort of)! Thanks to looking at yesterday's analysis, I noticed right away that the Rook on e4 is unguarded! If only there was a way to check the king while attacking the rook on a diagonal... (thanks to <Once> for putting these ideas in my head). ...

ChessPieceFace: <Once> Hey man, I really like your analysis! Very well written. I'm a bit embarrassed to say i missed the rook fork, even from standard distances. :(
   Apr-11-11 K Haznedaroglu vs J Isaev, 2010
ChessPieceFace: <Patriot> <cadwallon> This is my biggest problem: when trying to analyze lines and continuations, I only see the moves that *I* would play, which usually are, as you say, "major mistakes". Need to work on that...
   Apr-11-11 Aronian vs C Seel, 2002 (replies)
ChessPieceFace: Hey! I got it! Can't be too happy w/myself, being monday, but hey, I'll take it when I can get it. I don't know anything about Christian Seel, how good of a player he was/is, but this position seems straight out of a puzzle workbook. Pretty amazing that Aronian set him up ...

ChessPieceFace: I didn't get this one at all. Not even close. I'll have to read more people's analysis, even of the final position, I still don't fully grasp everything. Looks like 1 1/2 stars is my ceiling. :( (Actually, I made a mess of yesterday's i guess 1 star is my tops).

ChessPieceFace: Hi <YouRang>! My name's Brian. I'm a very low rated player! I'm a bit late, but thanks for posting your game against a computer (from March 21st). It was very easy to follow your analysis, and very instructive too! I really enjoyed reading that!
   Apr-05-11 Polgar vs Kaidanov, 2010 (replies)
ChessPieceFace: Oh, my second group of analyses, I listed 37...Kf6 which is, of course, not a legal move. I need to practice/study/think more.
   Apr-05-11 Venert vs V Mechkarov, 1970 (replies)
ChessPieceFace: <MountainMatt> Yes, I think in looking at it again, 6.e4 is best. (It's what I would play, maybe, which is saying nearly nothing). I'd look to follow it up with 7.Be2 and 8.O-O. It's way too early in the game for me to tell if this is the best thing to play, but it ...
   Apr-01-11 H Rost vs E Sneiders, 1989 (replies)
ChessPieceFace: <Once> Oh my gosh, thank you! I'm reading that column now, and it's pretty much exactly what I needed! I can sometimes get the puzzles on here, but I rarely understand *why* something should work, and what the overall purpose is (opening up the kingside, exploiting the ...
