I'm a 23 year old national master from South Carolina, United States. I'm just kidding, I'm only about 1600 or 1700. :) Anyways, I love playing, and I love this site for giving me the opportunity to re-live some of the greatest games ever. I play on WCN regularly under the name Nick Lesniak, so feel free to chat with me on there some time.

Nickisimo: I tried Rxg2+...right square, wrong idea. Once I saw the BxP, RxB RxR+ sequence, the rest was easy.

Nickisimo: <kjartanmi> I've done the whole CT-Art circuit once already(doing the MDLM 7 circles thing), and I think I remember this theme as well(though it could be from other material or games I've studied as well). If I'm not mistaken Ct-Art makes you work through the PxP PxP NxP N+ ...

Nickisimo: zinzin, check out World Chess Network(WCN). I'm about 1600-1700 USCF and always find great competition there. There's also some very good people on there in terms of morals and decency. WCN also does a very good job of cracking down on cheating. My name on there is Nick Lesniak. ...

Nickisimo: I go through ups and downs all the time. I think other people said it best when they said that it's probably wise to just take it easy(even though I know that's the last thing you want to do)and try and find some way to make the game fun again. Take up a different set of openings ...

Nickisimo: Yep, easy one, but I'm sure they'll get insanely difficult soon. The rook here is like the guy in volleyball who sets up the spike for his teammate. That's how I envision it anyways. :)

Nickisimo: Better still would be "White to move his rook somewhere between g5 and g7, capture a piece and land on a light square...and win"
   Jun-01-05 Marshall vs Von Scheve, 1904 (replies)
Nickisimo: This took me a couple seconds to dispose of some ideas of a R+ and then B+ followed by PxQ, but I didn't even notice that the queen on g4 was en prise. Once I figured that out, the mate threat on f8 became clear coupled with the pin on the g-file. Another pretty Marshall win.

Nickisimo: It's only Tuesday, I wouldn't call it serious. I also agree with whoever posted that Black could have resigned after 18. Qxg4 but Black was most likely in shock and played an extra move or two before realizing that the game was indeed over.(19...Nd4 exposing the Queen to a ...

Nickisimo: Very strange that for a GM he has so few games listed on here. His books and columns are top notch. Perhaps he didn't play much because he so focused on his chess writing. I think this is true of many great chess authors. Reinfeld, Chernev, etc.

Nickisimo: I guess you could say he has a "keen" eye for combinations...right? right?
