Started playing when I was 5 and am self taught. I live in TN (US). I play about at the low end of 1300-1500 level most likely but have not been USCF rated for years. I remember Fisher, Spasky, and that era from watching and reading about games as a youngster. I am watching the Chess sites now and learning more about positional chess, something I did not recognize well as I developed my game initially.

Longview: I see that black can trap the King but not in a forcing way particularly. 25...Rxd4 26. cxd4 Bxd4+ 27. Kh8 Qh4++ If 27. Rf2 Bxa1 28 Qxf7+ Bg7 and Black is up a Bishop!
   Jul-26-17 V Malakhov vs I Khairullin, 2007 (replies)
Longview: I think this one <chrisowen> did get fairly easily. I got the first move but wanted to Qxe6 for some unknown reason instead of the simple check. I obviously failed to recognize that the white King controlled h6 and f6 that provides along with the black pawn on g6, a barrier. ...

Longview: I was surprised by the Qg7 move. I was expecting Qxe7. Makes more sense the way it was played. Did not think of using that square which was protected by the Knight. thought the purpose of the R sac was to get the queen to e7 though.

Longview: One of the games where the commentary and Kibitzing are more interesting than the game. Thank you to the participants, especially the player.

Longview: @<ColeTrane and gofer> I can relate to your expressed frustration, for and against resignation times. Our club, admittedly primarily very young players, has a rule that resignation is not done and that the winner must checkmate the opponent. This is admittedly an exercise in ...

Longview: I am pleased that watching good chess for three weeks has given me my first Thursday solution in a long time!

Longview: right there with you <you rang>.
   Jul-21-16 O Cvitan vs P Kokol, 2015 (replies)
Longview: <cheaper> right there beside you. got the first move as one of my two candidates but picked the other. Calculations to varied for me. I thought the King would not go to that square in response to Qf6. Liked the trade bishops offer (26.Nd6)
   Jul-06-16 V Kamenov vs T Galunov, 2009 (replies)
Longview: I saw this: Qh6+ 27. Kg4 R8xf4+ 28. gxf4 Qxf4+ 29. Kh3 Qf5+ 30. Kh4 Rf4+ 31. Kg3 Qg4# I like the way played because it uses the black pawns as a wall!
   Jun-19-16 Fedorchuk vs Dorfman, 2015 (replies)
Longview: This has to be a father's day gift. I got this one! It seemed clear that White had an active attack ready to spring on the Kingside and I followed my nose, as it were. I missed a couple of Black's responses, better than I would have played in defense, but the movement of White was ...
