Oliveira
Member since May-03-08 · Last seen Apr-03-21
Wannabe chess historian and medievalist hailing from Curitiba, Brazil.

I like quotes. Here are a couple I've ran across through the years that still have a deep impact on me.

<Of the qualities necessary for playing chess Iaiá possessed the two essential ones: a quick eye and Benedictine patience–qualities precious in life itself, which is also a game of chess, with its problems and games, some won, some lost, others neither.> ---Machado de Assis, from the novel Iaiá Garcia, 1978

<In the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years.> ---Abraham Lincoln (many thanks to User: chancho)

   Mar-16-16 M Codenotti vs T Pavelek, 2008
 
Oliveira: "Now I take your knight, and you take my queen and then I take your-- uh-oh!"
 
   Mar-11-16 I Tsesarsky vs I Boim, 2000 (replies)
 
Oliveira: If Black goes 27... Rxf2+, 28.Rxf2 Bxf2 29.hxg6+ Kh8 30.Bh6! wins the Queen already, but with 30.Qf5!! (computer move) White is delivering checkmate. [DIAGRAM]
 
   Mar-03-16 S Matera vs Nunn, 1975 (replies)
 
Oliveira: Was this a simul or something? I mean, John Nunn got a severe beating.
 
   Mar-03-16 Caruana vs Jobava, 2014 (replies)
 
Oliveira: 24... Ke7 25.Qe5! is beautifully crushing! Black can't make a single helpful move. The sacrifice 23.Rxd8! absolutely took the dark squares away from Black! [DIAGRAM]
 
   May-20-15 Grischuk vs Caruana, 2015 (replies)
 
Oliveira: As to your last post <Dom>, I hardly believe that Modernity or a global economy can be called "single phenomena". And, again, you're right, we have a place for this kind ofdiscussion.
 
   May-19-15 Teichmann vs Nimzowitsch, 1911 (replies)
 
Oliveira: Aha! Nimzowitsch came up with his funny invention because he was constantly missing his pen. Take a look at "Aron Nimzowitsch: On the Road to Chess Mastery, 1886-1924" by Per Skjoldager and Jørn Erik Nielsen. <The Wiener Schachzeitung gave a very detailed report from the ...
 
   May-17-15 Spielmann vs Nimzowitsch, 1905 (replies)
 
Oliveira: A clean, solid win by Spielmann: no fireworks this time, just a gradual undermining of Nimzo's potential weak pawns. 27...♗xb2 was the decisive mistake, but Black's position was growing more and more uncomfortable. In fact, 19... ♘g7 already looks very suspicious, but ...
 
   May-15-15 Sultan Khan vs Marshall, 1930 (replies)
 
Oliveira: <suenteus po 147: It is ever my goal to make my fictions transparent for what they are.> I'm confused. Is the Tartakower's account for real?
 
   May-13-15 Alekhine vs A Kaufmann, 1919 (replies)
 
Oliveira: <Moszkowski012273: ... Alekhine missed 31.Nd7 which happens to be mating.> Alekhine missing a checkmate? Oh no, sir! 31... Kh6 saves Black.
 
   May-05-15 A Reif vs Lasker, 1889 (replies)
 
Oliveira: Lasker's usual way of demolishing weaker opponents.
