ColonelCrockett
Member since Jul-10-06 · Last seen Jan-15-14
You want to know about me? Well, I'm a tournament chess player from Kentucky. That's probably all I shouls say but I can't resist adding more. . . I teach lessons to people of all ages and I'm an active online competitor I play on Brainking.com and itsyourturn.com. Both are correspondence sites and easy for me to schedule. I occassionally play blitz on yahoo but only when I think time has become a factor in my games, otherwise I stay away from it. I believe in getting the answer right no matter how long it takes, I'm always in time trouble as a consequence. Let's see, what else, I try to stay current with opeing theory, I enjoy a good King's Indian, a Caro-Kann and I've been known to play bizarre opening moves even in tournament games (I've played 1.a3 the "Anderssen Opening" on and off for years, so-called because Anderssen played it on a few occassions).

ColonelCrockett: 15. ... Ne6? seems too optimistic about the knights job there this early in the game. I'm thinking 15. ... a6 when the trade is good fro Black and 15. ... a6 16.c5 axb5 17.cxd6 Nxd6 is just to cool to actually happen for Black. Therefore the best after a6 is for the white ...

ColonelCrockett: also I think maybe something like 12. ... cxd4 13.Bxd4 Nf5 is a way to at least equality.
 
   May-28-10 A G Aleksandrov vs M Zelic, 2010
 
ColonelCrockett: This game may have been reconstructed from a time scramble.
 
   Nov-24-07 O Loewenborg vs M Marchand, 1916 (replies)
 
ColonelCrockett: this is definitely a miniature to learn from. White won the battle because Black voluntarily looked for a superior endgame on move six and then made a blunder on move twelve ... taking the knight was also poor but the real error was Black's twelfth ... leading him down to ...
 
   Nov-15-07 Kamsky vs Kramnik, 1994 (replies)
 
ColonelCrockett: The remarkable thing is that despite his style of more careful play ... Gata seems to produce these kinds of briliiant games at least a few times a year.
 
   Nov-15-07 Ivanchuk vs Carlsen, 2007 (replies)
 
ColonelCrockett: 34. Qd4 seems to win. Can someone please explain why Ivanchuk chose Be2?
 
   Oct-18-07 Smyslov vs Pilnik, 1956 (replies)
 
ColonelCrockett: ooh! b4 loses! ... I would've messed up in this game ... I'm not concentrating today.
 
   Oct-17-07 Judit Polgar vs Short, 1993 (replies)
 
ColonelCrockett: 63. h7? Kg7 64.h8=Q Kxh8 65.Kxf6 Rg7 (and the Black king is kept out of f7 and the White pawn is attacked ... White must play correctly but the ending is simply drawn). White has only Rh5+, Rd8+, Rg5, Rd4, and Kf5 to play ... the Checks simply transpose to the other lines ...
 
   Oct-16-07 Fischer vs R Burger, 1964 (replies)
 
ColonelCrockett: an interesting line, Rookfile ... what about 7. Bxf7+ Ke7 8. Bb3 Nxb3 9. axb3 h6 10. Nf3 e4 11. Ng1 Bg4 12. Ne2 Kf7 13. O-O It seems that Black's "attack" is over and White's position dominates (as the Blacke-pawn presents a beautiful target for White's pieces). I suppose ...
 
   Oct-12-07 Zsuzsa Polgar vs J Yu, 2006 (replies)
 
ColonelCrockett: 7. ... e5 is the better move in theory. This move blunts any fancy ideas White might have of puting his (or her) pawns on light squares and contesting the long diagonal (as in the game). In fact e5 is the point of playing Nc6 (otherwise the move can be omitted and Black ...
