I'm 61y old chess player, live in BELO HORIZONTE, in the center of BRAZIL. I played chess early as 11y, was 5th in JR championship 75, won 2 university team championship as 4th board 1977/78, 2nd in classification of my state championship/1983, when abandonned chess for a long time, playing music. Now, I like to play against the CHESSMASTER game, and had won good games among several "simulated" masters by the computer, including FLOHR, SMYSLOV, RESHEVSKY, NIMZOVITCH and CAPABLANCA; sure is not easy to do it! Of course I spend much time, trying to win, go forth, go back; but the game has more resources than me, so I guess that is correct that I have a chance to go back some moves, as the computer can see everything on 10 moves ahead, or maybe more. It is like a study. My favorite players are RUBSTEIN, ALEKHINE(when sober), SMYSLOV, BOTWINNIK, LARSEN, FISCHER, POLUGAIEVSKY, KASPAROV and me, of course. I have a lot of bad results in competitions, as I had never time to really dedicate my self to won a championship, but I have some beautiful games, including those with computer, where I had played very good the endings. Sometimes, with little advantage, of course computer never give up, only when checkmate happens.

   Dec-13-19 J Klinger vs W Arencibia Rodriguez, 1986 (replies)
King.Arthur.Brazil: This time the answer 33...h3+! is very simple, objective and it is not so hard to find. Other answers different from 34.♔f3 lead to loose the ♕ or to check-mate move (the majority).
   Dec-08-19 Bronstein vs Simagin, 1961
King.Arthur.Brazil: Easy: 45. ♖h4+ ♔g6 46. ♖g4+ ♔h6 47. ♖c7 ♕xa3 48. ♖cg7 ♕c5 49. ♖7g6+ ♔h5 50. ♖6g5+ ♔h6 51. ♖h4#
   Dec-06-19 B D Deac vs N Berry, 2017 (replies)
King.Arthur.Brazil: I do not saw the direct 24.♕xd5 although the sequence after that was immediately found by me. However, I chose the move 29. ♗a3, where, the capture is quickly win to white with: 29...♕xa3 30. ♖xc7 ♘c6 31. ♘d4 ♕f8 32. ♖xb7 ...
   Dec-03-19 Saemisch vs J Engel, 1928 (replies)
King.Arthur.Brazil: I suppose that I saw this game before, since I found the combination immediately. However, I do agree with <Blok> that Black surely could try to survive more, with a petrosianic defence, by answering 23...♗xf5. A plausible sequence could be: 24. ♖xf5 ...
   Dec-01-19 Szabo vs Bronstein, 1953 (replies)
King.Arthur.Brazil: I already saw this game before. The Zurich candidates, won by Smyslov, showed the russians above the remaining, however, it was impossible to avoid some defeats by the way, and Szabo didn't lose his chance against another big creative mind in chess.
   Nov-30-19 J K Duda vs G Gajewski, 2016 (replies)
King.Arthur.Brazil: I guess that White was tired when complementing the game after the 51th move. The easiest plan is to exchange the ♖ and win the final promoting the a5-8 ♙. See diagram. Therefore, instead of loosing time with 52.♖f7 I would play 52.♖a7 which would ...
   Nov-28-19 Geller vs Portisch, 1967 (replies)
King.Arthur.Brazil: I quickly found the moves, however, I chose 23. ♘g6 as deadly as ♖e3. There's nothing to avoid ♕h8#.
   Nov-27-19 C Kottnauer vs Kotov, 1946 (replies)
King.Arthur.Brazil: I failed to find the initial move, 23. b4! but I saw the 24.♘xe6 without the previous preparation move, which is obvious a gross mistake. However, I think at fist glance, that 25...♕b8 helps the White win. Then, I began to see other answers: A) 27...♔d6 ...
   Nov-26-19 Prins vs E Paoli, 1949 (replies)
King.Arthur.Brazil: I checked twice if it is EASY. When I thought this way, I begin to wonder: what is the easiest thing to do now? You have simply no good moves or plan. But the ♕ is ill positioned and the only logical way to proceed is breaking through is to play d4. So the ...
   Nov-21-19 Savon vs Polugaevsky, 1971 (replies)
King.Arthur.Brazil: It seems strange that for white sacrifice of the ♕, Stockfish has no comment. So I added this one: 19...♗xf6 20. ♘xf6+ ♔g7 21. ♗d4 ♕d5? (or ♕b8??) 22. ♘g4+ ♔g8? 23. ♘h6#. In this case, 22...♕xd4 giving back
