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 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?
