Member since Aug-02-06 · Last seen Apr-19-07
My name is Michael and I live in Thessaloniki-Greece. I learned chess at the age of 7 years old, been a team member and candidate for the masters title untill I was 17 years old. Due to university and professional obligations I had to stop playing chess. The last year and after 33 years, I started playing again since chess is one of my greatests loves in life. Thank you.

Olympos: Excellent!! RIP David, your ideas will remain immortal.

Olympos: It took me 3 seconds to solve, it is a typical classical case of pawn promotion.

Olympos: The only move, otherwise White is mated (!!) in one move, eg 39. (any other move than Be6) gxf5 mate. If 39. fxg6 then 39. ... f7-f5 mate!! A rather easy puzzle.

Olympos: I really do not understand why Black has resigned at that stage of the game! He could play for a draw. Maybe time pressure?

Olympos: One of the easiest puzzles so far!
   Nov-01-06 Horwitz vs Bledow, 1837 (replies)
Olympos: Very easy and beautiful.
   Oct-30-06 Grischuk vs Ponomariov, 2000 (replies)
Olympos: Found in 3 seconds, very easy and typical case. I think that Ponomariov has permitted his opponent to show us another example of this kind of mate, bravo to him.

Olympos: Very easy! 23. Qxb7 in order to remove the Knight's threat from d8 square. 1)32. .. Qxb7 33. Rd8+ Rxd8 34. exd8=Q+ Kf(g)7 35. Qf8+# 2)32. .. Qe8 33. Qxa8! 2a) 33. .. Qxa8 34. Rd8+ etc 2b) 33. .. Kf7 34. Qxe8+ etc

Olympos: nice and in a way easy, since 27. .. Qb4 is the only logical move for counter-play reaction. On 28.Kf1, Black responses 28. .. Rxe1+ 29. Rxe1 (forced) Qxg4 30. Nh6+ Kf8 31. Nxg4 Nxd5 followed by e6.
