I'm more of a jack-of-all-trades, master-of-none. Chess, Shatranj, Xiangqi, Janggi, Shogi, Makruk, and a few I've made up for pending sci-fi stories.

   Feb-23-20 Gligoric vs Ulf Andersson, 1974

   Nov-10-19 NN vs D Freeman, 2018
Korora: I ran through Stockfish (on the 15-minute analysis) possibilities for 23. d3, preventing Black's Queen ♗ from swooping in for the mate, and this is what I got: [DIAGRAM] 1) -16.32 (33 ply) 23...Kd7 24.Kd2 Rc8 25.Rc1 Rxa2 26.d4 Rc4 27.g5 Rxd4+ 28.Ke3 Re4+ 29.Kf3 Be2+ 30.Kg2 ...
