Member since Apr-13-07 · Last seen May-13-15
I'm a member of the Chess Club at the University of Michigan.

   Fourpointo has kibitzed 57 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Dec-23-08 Bisguier vs Bronstein, 1955 (replies)
 
Fourpointo: The only game in the database with the American Attack. This should be the game of the day on July 4th or something.
 
   Feb-22-08 Kramnik vs Kasparov, 2000 (replies)
 
Fourpointo: I thought 22. Ne8 would be better. It directly threatens mate Qf8 and Qxg7, and taking with either the knight or rook results in a forced mate.
 
   Feb-10-08 Von Gottschall vs J N Berger, 1887 (replies)
 
Fourpointo: "White to play 32...?" at least deserves a Tuesday puzzle.
 
   Feb-09-08 W Harrelson vs Kasparov, 1999 (replies)
 
Fourpointo: <<Why do we say "cheers!",when we drink booze?> In ye olden days, one would have given "three cheers to..." whoever had bought the latest round of drinks. It has become merely "cheers" over the years.> <<kevin86>, why do we say "cheers" before having a drink?
 
   Feb-05-08 S Tatai vs M Lazic, 2001 (replies)
 
Fourpointo: Somebody is going to have to explain to me 9. Nb1...
 
   Jan-26-08 Carlsen vs N Ibraev, 2004 (replies)
 
Fourpointo: <Ne4 is not possible because Bxe4.> Who said anything about Ne4? I'm talking 17. Qh7.
 
   Jan-26-08 P Gutierrez Castillo vs S Paridar, 2005 (replies)
 
Fourpointo: Why not 18. c4 ? It appears to win the rook.
 
   Jan-14-08 Bosboom-Lanchava vs Spoelman, 2005 (replies)
 
Fourpointo: Pretty unusual that the obvious trade of material ends up being the solution to a puzzle, instead of a sacrifice or other precautionary move.
 
   Dec-29-07 Seidman vs W Shipman, 1946 (replies)
 
Fourpointo: <There's something even simpler than that, and than the one in the text. 38. Ra7! threatening Qg8# and Qxc8 at the same time.> Qg8 wouldn't be a mate because of Bf8.
 
   Dec-02-07 R Masiyazi vs S Namangale, 2005
 
Fourpointo: White plays the endgame perfectly.
