I am 22 years of age and have been playing chess now since about the age of 6. My greatest achievement in chess so far was coming joint first in the English under 10 Rapidplay championships with a final score of 5/6. My headmaster took me to this tournament with high hopes but left extremely upset when I lost the first game in about 10 minutes. He told me I had wasted what could have been a lovely saturday for him. The following monday I knocked at his office with the trophy and he was astounished to learn that I had won the next 5 games to take joint first! When I entered high school I dropped chess and became more interested in booze, fags, girls and some other dodgy stuff as you do. I took the game back up a few years ago and hope with some hard work to achieve a recongnized title from FIDE. I wish to do this in the memory of my dad who taught me the game but sadly passed away when I was 18. After I gain a title, I intend to drop chess and focus my life on building a good career and nice family with my girlfriend who I have been dating for seven long years lol.

KNIGHTSTALE22: <Dionyseus> Please move into the real world of chess. A comment like "white mates in 23, a proven tablebase win" would indicate to me that you have very little over the board experience.

KNIGHTSTALE22: <Once> I love your stories, they are brilliant. I used to come to chessgames for the puzzles, now I come just to read your short stories.

KNIGHTSTALE22: <Lluviasean> I was thinking the exact same thing when I realised it was Qxe6+. I am sure I have had several chances in OTB play myself. I am going to be honest and say I would not have found this if it was not a puzzle. The irony is, the chance will probably never come ...

KNIGHTSTALE22: I don't know why, but I never really struggle with endgame puzzles and found this idea pretty quickly. Not to blow my own trumpet though, because my over the board endgame technique is poor to say the least. I know some masters say the most beautiful part of chess is endgames,

KNIGHTSTALE22: After looking at the game continuation, I assumed that 33. A5 was a critical move before playing 34 G4, so I give myself a minus, but it would seem A5 isn't neccesary at all after reading some other posts. This being the case, it isnt as difficult as I may have thought.

KNIGHTSTALE22: Call me cynical, but I wish chessgames would post more subtle spoilers than this one throughout the weeks and not reveal the lines untill much later on. I have looked at some posts in the past and thought that Kasparov had popped in under a few different handles for a laugh. ...

KNIGHTSTALE22: The modern game of top level chess is so boring and unimaganitive that this whole game was probably won by Shirov in his home preparation for the game!! I miss the good old days when Nimzo, Capa, and Alekhine would sit down and have a real game of chess, and raw talent would ...

KNIGHTSTALE22: I have this theory that, no matter how long you take over a puzzle, it will not be any easier to see the solution than it was after the first 5 minutes, and so, if I carn't sense something after 5 minutes,I just look at the solution. I believe if we have puzzles like this next

KNIGHTSTALE22: It took me sometime to find b4 and Nb3, because like LIFE master AJ, I was looking for something spectacular. It gets me to wonder whether I carry this illness of thought into my OTB games? Am I looking at too many fancy ideas and hot shot killer moves, when in reality, simple

KNIGHTSTALE22: I love a good mystical tale as much as everyone else here, but I carnt help but think that we have a case of William Wallace firing lightning bolts from his ass going on here! A little look on wiki reveals that a Miss Fatima done pretty much the same thing in ladies chess as ...
