Ed Trice
Member since Jul-11-07 · Last seen Aug-04-09

Mate in 15 with an interesting sacrifice

A surprising mate in 6 moves

Sacrificing material early on to create a strategically won position requiring many moves to solidify:

A forced checkmate in 268 moves that can you replay one move at a time:

Ed Trice: I don't know if it's widely known yet, but the new USCF "standard" time control features a 30-second increment (not a delay!) The Main Line Chess Club changed their format from 70 min with a 5-second delay to 50 minutes with 30 second increment, and I found this very enjoyable. In ...

Ed Trice: <The inconsistent results just show that there has been no 'absolute champion' since kasparov. Kramnik, Topa and Vishy are like 3 great pool sharks or poker players, one gets hot and is on top for awhile, but none of the three is shown to be the absolute best.> Let's not ...

Ed Trice: I would have never thought of trying 12. c5 with the threat of black's e4 coming in that position.

Ed Trice: <In 2008, he tried multiple times to add information about his BS $15,000,000 Gothic Chess tournament to the Wikipedia article about Bobby Fischer.> Yet when FIscher died, this was prominently mentioned in The Philadelphia Inquirer. I ...
