Craigokat: Hello. this is Craig's wife/partner, Annie. SO wonderful to hear such kind words from everyone. I especially enjoyed Once's Chess eulogy. I miss him terribly and I am sad for our 1 yr old daughter, as she will never know him first hand. Thank you to everyone...

   Jun-23-10 A Budnikov vs V Varavin, 1989 (replies)
Craigokat: 18.Ng5 Qxd4 19.Ne6 looks like fun

   May-04-10 Topalov vs Anand, 2010 (replies)
Craigokat: Maybe black can hold by playing h5 and keeping the king on f7. still there may be some type of Zugzwang down the road
   May-03-10 Anand vs Topalov, 2010 (replies)
Craigokat: To claim 3-fold , you must do so to the arbiter before your move that creates the key position.
   Apr-30-10 Topalov vs Anand, 2010 (replies)
Craigokat: Fischer (among others) has instructively shown the clear edge of the B vs.the Kt with pawns on both sides of the board. In this position it seems that having more pawns actually shuts down the B to a certain extent and will ultimately provide an effective outpost for the knight. ...
