I live in New York where I am a psychologist. I last played tournament chess in my early 20's - 40 years ago. My last rating was 1834. My joy in the game is now mostly in following master games, which I feel are works of art. My favorite: Korchnoi.

Mfrankpsyd: Why not 24... Qf3?

Mfrankpsyd: And this was a game played in a simul!

Mfrankpsyd: How did this one not make it into Soltis' Best100 of the 20th Century?
   Jun-20-15 Kasparov vs Topalov, 1999 (replies)
Mfrankpsyd: After 31... Rd1 32. Kb2 Qd4+ 33. Qxd4 Rxd4 34. Rxf7 White has mate threats (Be6 followed by Bb3 or Rf6) and also passed pawns on both sides compensating favorably for the exchange. You don't see what's immortal about this game?!? Beauty is immortal.

Mfrankpsyd: His win against Charbonneau in 9/2009 which appeared in the NY Times as an endgame study was a shining star. I don't see it here but it's worth looking up - 2 Knights winning against king and pawn.
