I learned chess in June 2002, beat my first USCF 'Expert' 6 months later, and have been making a serious study of the game since.

   Jan-25-06 Aronian vs Van Wely, 2006 (replies)
OverDjinn: I think this was a nice win for van Wely but it will probably be more useful to Aaronian. Aaronian is getting stronger and learning the subtleties of square strategy and proper piece placement and it appears that perhaps some of the niceties of pawn play have not yet made it to ...
   Oct-17-05 Kasimdzhanov vs Svidler, 2005
OverDjinn: The Pirc is largely underestimated. Short wrote in his review that it was almost an insult to play it at this level, Rogozenko once told me during a game that it was “too easy to crack,” and I’ve heard Kramnik describe it as unusual and probably unsound. Despite all the nasty ...

OverDjinn: Oh, I didn't take any offense. :) And thank you.
   May-27-05 R Plunkett vs S Fink, 2003 (replies)
OverDjinn: 11. Nxc6 was a positional blunder in my opinion. The problem is that after this move black gets hanging pawns that though technically “weak” are very hard to blockade due to white’s vulnerable king. 14. h3 is also terrible and the kind of thing I have played against me in 1 minute

OverDjinn: Am I alone in finding something interesting in this game?
   May-27-05 M Bach vs R Schubert, 1996 (replies)
OverDjinn: It would be useful for combating the punny problem if <> would at least institute a qualitative ratings system similar to the USA’s Terror Alert system. Red, Orange, Yellow, Blue Green, which are for Severe, High, Elevated, Guarded, and Low, might be replaced ...

OverDjinn: <dzanone> How did Bobby refute the Pirc?
   May-12-05 Capablanca vs Ragozin, 1935 (replies)
OverDjinn: Ragozin's first mistake was 10...Ne7? Instead of this move, which intends to play f5 in a position that is too weak for it, 10...Na5, b6, and Ba6 was needed. The remarkable aspect of this game is how it illustrates the king's "self-defense" as insufficient without a form of active
   May-08-05 Kasparov vs Bacrot, 2004 (replies)
OverDjinn: Wow, this is a very surprising blunder by Kasparov. Is the "knight opposition" only known to Americans? ;)
