PJs Studio
Member since Dec-25-13 · Last seen Dec-05-20
I'm a USCF Expert, slowed down my play with the wife, family, house, job...etc. My openings are (less) stale and my endings are ok but my tactics are a bit better than the rest of my game.

I've noticed many great comments from the players here and had to sign on to add what little I can. I still make time to study Schach...but only with the ease of a handy smartphone. I'm never condescending or contentious with analysis. Chess is hard enough without discouraging comments from others. "Grow the game" guys, grow it strong.

I wish you all good vision, great play, strong character and an indomitable will.

All the best from upstate NY

   Jul-24-20 R Knaak vs Uhlmann, 1978 (replies)
PJs Studio: Ive found these types of sac's tough to play over the board. i.e., too many moves to then prove blacks king has no flight squares. Been burned too many times. Nice play by Knaak.
   Jul-20-20 Jacobo Bolbochan vs Keres, 1937
PJs Studio: Iím not sure I can see what black has planned if white played 38. Kxd5 other than a repetition with Bb7+ Bolbochan missed his chance to draw one of the best players of all time.
   Jul-20-20 K Solomon vs R Simpson, 2001 (replies)
PJs Studio: Blummemfeld when black plays e6 instead of a6 in my opinion. This game transposed to a Benko declined line that is identical.
   Jul-20-20 Goldin vs E Tate, 2006
PJs Studio: Playing 1...c5 is not bad at all. The only thing black must be ready for is a sicilian and/or Morra Sicilian. Otherwise black must be comfortable with 2.Nc3 lines - which may fare better for black but I think White is a bit better coordinated without the pawn on c4 being used as ...
   Jul-20-20 Hjartarson vs Kasparov, 1994
PJs Studio: The Benko is a damn dangerous weapon in the hands of a dynamic player. Kasparov probably couldíve beaten many more top GMís with the benko. A solid choice as a surprise weapon. But when strong GMís know itís coming...? Sheesh. A bit risky for black.
   Jul-20-20 T Reilly vs P Wang, 2007
PJs Studio: I think itís great to note the refutation of an early Bxa6(?!) White gets to bolster his queenside for free. Very notable in a gambit line where blacks system is based entirely on weakening b2 & a2.
   Jul-20-20 Botvinnik vs Szabo, 1956 (replies)
PJs Studio: Szabů was a strong GM. Botvinnik showed him the power of home analysis and restricts his play beautifully. I really enjoyed this one.
   Jul-20-20 Botvinnik vs Petrosian, 1966
PJs Studio: I think that white still has to try and hold the balance after Re1 even being the exchange up. The d pawn is too big of a menace. Botvinnik didnít see Be4 or the game would likely have ended in a draw. Very exciting matchup of two legends
   Jul-20-20 Botvinnik vs Unzicker, 1961
PJs Studio: I enjoyed the Bc4 - d5 - e4 maneuver by Botvinnik to ice the Knight. Restriction is so important in endgames.

PJs Studio: Iím friends with Shirov on Facebook. But itís not like we chat frequently. Man what a super player he was!
