Narrowly missed getting an international rating of over 2000 in the British Open. Won prizes in graded national championship, Hastings Major etc. Captained county second team to the national final. Best result on the net is a blitz win against a WGM :-)

Elroch: Yes, 9. ... Nxd5 is a typo. The move actually played must have been 9. ... Nh5
   Nov-11-09 H Steingrimsson vs E Perelshteyn, 2008
Elroch: Black has an advantage at the end of this game. I can only assume this is a (very) incomplete score, or an incorrect result.

Elroch: 22. b4 is nice!
   Jun-16-09 Psakhis vs R Soffer, 1995
Elroch: This game has no capture before move 64 and was still decisive due to the frustration of black!
   May-05-09 J Sheehan vs L Roche, 1974
Elroch: Rxc2 is an interesting idea here, but it is definitely not the best move (the prosaic Qxf5 probably is). The sacrifice proposed by tnmn6789 turns a clear win into an unclear game, so would be a mistake.
   Dec-09-06 Adorjan vs I Polgar, 1972 (replies)
Elroch: 15. ... Bxd5 16.Nxd5 Nxd5 17. Qh5+ 19. ...Bxe3 20. Qxg6 20. ...Rxh6 21. Nxf5! gxf5 22. Qxf5 Qc8 23. Ne4! ...
   Nov-27-06 Delchev vs Macieja, 2006
Elroch: 28. Rh8+ Kf7 29. Qf3+ Ke8 30. Rxf8 Qxf8 31. Bxc6 may be an even clearer win.
   Nov-19-06 Polgar vs Korchnoi, 2006 (replies)
Elroch: To be precise, 30. Rg5 was a move that probably left white with a slight disadvantage against 30. ...f5!. (Other moves for white also seem to leave black with a slight disadvantage). It was also a rather elementary trap into which one of the greatest players never to be world ...
   Nov-09-06 E Schiller vs J Tompkins, 1970 (replies)
Elroch: Actually 6. Nxf7 is considered unclear after 6. ...Kxf7 7.Qf3+ Ke6 8. Nc3 Ncb4 9. a3 Nxc2 10. Kd1 Nxa1 11. Nxd5. 6. d4 may be better
   Oct-14-06 Staunton vs Horwitz, 1846 (replies)
Elroch: Horwitz lost this due to an error on move 70 in an instructive rook versus pawn ending. 70. ...b3? was the losing move, but 70. ...Kd4! is a textbook example of doing two jobs with the king, marching towards c2 by an indirect route to delay the white king. 70. ...Kd4! 71. Rb7 Kc3 72.
