Member since Mar-03-04 · Last seen Apr-10-07
I have been playing chess since the Fischer era, live near Chicago, and enjoy internet chess activities. I am a student of certain opening systems and believe that a player's style can evolve if he takes the time to study aspects of the game he is not familiar with. I have traditionally been a fairly aggressive attacking player but now am trying to learn a more positional approach, and get better at endgames. Favorite openings include the Scotch Game, Smith Morra Gambit,Accelerated Dragon, and various forms of the QGD or Colle System. Favorite players are Alekhine, Koltanowski, Rubinstein, Fischer and Botvinnik. I have a fairly large chess library but am determined to limit its future growth as I can't finish reading all I have now. I don't have an official rating presently but think it to be in the 1600-1800 range. Compliments to for an excellent site!

   May-17-06 M Bagdasarova vs K Rybenko, 1998 (replies)
Dudley: Give it a rest,14...Ng4 is not the solution. 14...Ne4 demonstrates an accurate understanding of the position-the point of these puzzles is to find that devastaing, unexpected move that ices the game right now, not just any move that happens to win. Go ahead and give yourself credit ...
   May-08-06 Sherard / Wilmot vs Burn, 1897 (replies)
Dudley: They should hve started this one with the 16th (Bb5!) move instead of the 17th, but that might make it a Tuesday or Wednesday puzzle.
   May-04-06 Unzicker vs K Skold, 1950 (replies)
Dudley: Isn't 20.Rfe1 really the critical move? I don't think Rde1 works, as White must control the d file.
   May-02-06 Z Izoria vs M Sadatnajafi, 2006 (replies)
Dudley: Nice K side attack in the QG exchange line. The Pillsbury method with Ne5 followed by f4 is often a good idea. I wonder if 9...h6 would have been a better defense? Or would that have played into White's hands by allowing a pawn storm on that side of the board since white hadn't ...
   Apr-29-06 Raymond Keene (replies)
Dudley: Your name was mentioned in the Chicago Tribune story about the code breaking effort. Peter Hoyle said "after a few hours of excruciating scribbling and a brief consultation with Ray Keene I finally decoded the message " I was curious as to how the Fibonacci sequence is "repeatedly ...
   Apr-27-06 D Kassinopoullos vs V Georgiev, 2005 (replies)
Dudley: But this is not really a KID because of...d5 instead of ...d6. It is a good variation to play vs. the Colle though. 8.b4 or 8.Qe2 intending 9.Ne5 is better for White. The ordinary 8.e4 doesn't work so well here.
   Apr-25-06 M Bobotsov vs J Kozma, 1966 (replies)
Dudley: Better crank up Fritz to make sure! Or did you do that already?
   Apr-20-06 Scotch Game (C45) (replies)
Dudley: I would think 4.d5 is out of character with the Scotch. 4.dxe5 is better giving Black a choice of losing a pawn or losing the right to castle. 4.Bb5 would transpose into a variation of the Ruy Lopez,probably the best move. After you push 4.d5, Nb8 is ok as the piece will redevelop to
   Apr-18-06 Scandinavian (B01) (replies)
Dudley: <refutor> The idea of turning it into a Blackmar Diemer is a good one but as you say maybe not serious enough for normal time limits. I like the idea of not even playing Nc3 right away and instead moving Nf3, Be2, castle K side, d4 at some point and then c4, taking the game ...
   Apr-06-06 King's Indian (E70) (replies)
Dudley: Many of the famous KID games such as those by Bronstein, Najdorf and Gligoric feature king side attacks by Black. I think the slowness of White's development with c4 instead of Nc3 as in the Pirc gives Black the time to do this in many variations of the KID. The scheme you mentioned ...
