Hi my name is Andrew and i live in Phoenix, Arizona, USA. I have never competed in a tournament or received an official rating but i do play against many rated opponents and a good guess as to my rating is 1600 USCF. My favorite all time player is Bobby Fischer because he was the only American Grandmaster to become world champion and he made chess very exciting. I am 16 years old and i hope to one day become good. I have only been playing chess for 8 months(not that im counting) so hopefully i will be able to improve on my game.

MatedStan: <makavelia52> you're right, 27. Qg6+ was the right move but grabbing the pawn would not ruin the combination. You would simply have to realize the error and repeat the past position and play Qg6+. Taking the pawn is still a winning try for those that did not see far enough ...

MatedStan: Sneaky you said Nd5+

MatedStan: I saw the winning of the kingside pawns but thought that ...f5 would have been played rather than ...Kf8 to lose the pawn instead of the bishop. Maybe black was just playing on inertia, he was lost after 29 Rc4.

MatedStan: I think white did have the advantage in this game but blew it to a tactical loophole. If anyone sees how black has the advantage at or after move 35 please post your thoughts.

MatedStan: Hah! I found myself thinking the exact same thing throughout the movie! The movie was poorly made and they didnt come close in portraying the way the game is really played.

MatedStan: can anyone tell me which program is best out of fritz 9, shredder 9, or junior 9?

MatedStan: black was totally wiped off the board this game, he definitely shouldve resigned earlier. I dont understand how players can carry on like this in a game they have no hope of winning. Whenever i am in a hopelessly lost position i resign because it is simply too depressing to ...

MatedStan: i got this one pretty easily today after looking at the position and realizing that it didn't call for a mate. I always remember what my teacher told me while looking for the best move, he said to always identify all the possible pins and forks in the position and make sure you ...

MatedStan: i got this solution but as with many i was looking for a mate. initially looking at the position that was just what seemed ot pop out, yet after a short examination of the pins and varius checks i arrived at the solution. Ataturk i have an elo of 1600 and i got it. i am also ...

MatedStan: yeah, I realized the queen sac immediately, we need to change the puzzles up a bit. However, when playing in a game now I am confident i wont miss a bodens mate like the 3 we have seen in the last month. Practice makes perfect.
