Deus Irae
Member since Sep-22-05 · Last seen Feb-12-07
I'm a ~1350 rated patzer/college student, residing in the suburbs of Philadelphia, PA. Favorite players include Karpov, Fischer, Capablanca, Suttles, Kosteniuk, H. Itkis, Lagno... Besides chess, I enjoy the fiction of H. P. Lovecraft, Michael Moorcock, Roger Zelazny, and P. K. Dick. I play bass in a very amateur band of musicians, study history, and enjoy RPGs. My musical tastes vary: Beethoven, Wagner, X Japan, Malice Mizer, and Tool top the list.

IƤ! Yog-Sothoth!

Deus Irae: Xpir3d, instead of playing ♗h6 in your line, White can play ♗c3, and mate at h8 is unstoppable.

Deus Irae: Why is this over? Did White time out?

Deus Irae: After 42.f6, the black ♗ moves, and there's no defence against dropping the knight or 43...♘g3+.

Deus Irae: With the exchange of queens, Black is not winning: with ♔+♘+♘ vs. ♔, it is impossible to force mate.

Deus Irae: Why 1-0?

Deus Irae: For some reason, the header above this game identifies it as a "Nimzo-Indian Defense: Panov Attack. Main Line (B14)". However, this is the Panov-Botwinnik attack in the Caro-Kann, is it not?

Deus Irae: h3 stops a later ♗g4, undermining d4. It's not unplayable for W to allow, but not preferable.

Deus Irae: This was the first game I ever committed to memory. Playing over the moves is somewhat akin to a religious experience.
