A standard English Patzer. Highest achievement- part of the winning team in the Times UK Schools' Chess Tournament 1999. Low point- Subsequent drunked speech to British Chess Federation grandees including a perplexed looking Ray Keene. Yes- I did actually thank Caissa. Favourite Players- Bobby, Jules H, Nosher and Miles. Least likely to- provide accurate analysis.
Most likely to- make vacuous but important sounding observations featuring the word "thematic".

Plays on FICS- handle chessperado.

Chesschatology: This jumped out at me immediately, having recently watched the excellent coverage of <<Nakamura v. Caruana >> in the Sinquefield Cup by Yasser Seirawan, Jennifer Shahade and Maurice Ashley, in which Fabiano missed Bh4! just before the time control, setting up a ...

Chesschatology: <Natalia Pogonina> Thank you for the link! Interestingly enough Balogh does not mention the variation above, 22. d6!! - have you seen the possibility mentioned by GM Daniel King?

Chesschatology: I call this tactic the <Drag and Tag>.

Chesschatology: <whiteshark> very clever!
   Jan-17-13 Carlsen vs Morozevich, 2012 (replies)
Chesschatology: Nice annotations, <abuzic:>: it's funny how in some Q vs. pieces endgames with open Ks and no time on the clock, a pentium with Chessmaster '95 on it would probably outplay Carlsen and Morozevich. Comforting in a way.

Chesschatology: Fischer had a terrible life in many ways. His true father was Jewish, a nuclear scientist who died in mysterious circumstances, possibly assassinated by Soviet agents. His Mother lied to him to conceal his parentage, and was a left-wing zealot. From the start, this left him
   Jan-16-13 Carlsen vs Harikrishna, 2013 (replies)
Chesschatology: <fisayo123> First I totally agree that Carlsen doesn't always play this way, but he does sometimes use this strategy against the best- see yesterday's GOTD against Anand- he plays a theoretically equal main-line Canal attack mainly, I think, to avoid theory. It sort of ...
   Jan-10-13 T Hillarp Persson vs T Thomsen, 1997 (replies)
Chesschatology: Weirdly I solved this one much, much faster than Monday-Wednesday. The last three GOTDs have been like being invited to dinner at a swanky restaurant and trying to decide between the Lobster Thermidore and the Chateaubriand. The worst that could happen to you was an ...
   Jan-08-13 M J Turner vs J Hector, 1998 (replies)
Chesschatology: I'm ashamed to admit I had to google GOOT to find out what it meant. A great concept <Once>! I think my GOOT OAT is Karpov vs Taimanov, 1977 Karpov vs. Taimanov '77. After 39 … Ra8!! (really the "!!"s belong to 38 … Ng3, but I'd like to share them out) Black's ...

Chesschatology: Nice finish! Would make a good Thursday puzzle?
