I'm 38, from Montclair, N.J., USA.
I'm unrated -- have played since I was 5 but only recently under time controls. Favorite players: Tal, Kasparov, Fischer, Spielmann, Rubinstein, Spassky

   Mar-16-20 Mecking vs A C Rocha, 1969 (replies)
PKNJ: Qd4 followed by Nc6, and there's something actually good to start the week!
   Oct-21-19 Sznapik vs D Komljenovic, 1987 (replies)
PKNJ: 24. Bxf6, and White either follows up with Qh6 leading to mate or wins the Black Queen ... Too easy to brag about, except this is my first time ever posting a solution first!
   Apr-25-18 A Wang vs Jennifer Yu, 2018
PKNJ: Not true - if White plays 6. Nc3 instead of Nd2, he can hold the pawn after 6. ... Qe7 7. Qd5 - as long as he's willing to accept shattered queenside pawns after Bxc3. That imbalance is what makes the Budapest a gambit - and fun!

PKNJ: Hi, <Moszkowski012273>, what would be the best way to get in touch with you off-line? I am a journalist interested in writing about Bill Lombardy. No hassles (for you or him), I would just like to discuss the idea. Please let me know.
   Apr-20-16 A Bannik vs Korchnoi, 1954 (replies)
PKNJ: Does that count as a First!? (Apologies, but it would be my first.)
   Dec-30-14 Topalov vs Anand, 2004 (replies)
PKNJ: How about 41. … Rc4? If White moves his queen, he loses his rook. If takes the rook with his queen, that loses the queen. But if he takes with the rook, that allows Qg1.
   Feb-25-12 Faehndrich / Charousek vs Halprin / Marco, 1897 (replies)
PKNJ: I vote for this as the craziest game of all time. Not the best, or most significant, or most complicated, but the craziest ... I count 10 times that one side or the other just chucks away material. What do you all think?
   Dec-15-09 Botvinnik vs Tal, 1960 (replies)
PKNJ: Kibitzers love to speculate. We kibitz! I just wanted to say on this site, which has brought forth so much love and appreciation for Tal, that this is my favorite game of all time. The titanic nature of the clash, the audacity of Tal's play, the good humor and honesty of his ...
   Dec-15-09 Nakamura vs McShane, 2009 (replies)
PKNJ: This game won the London Chess Classic brilliancy prize -- 10,000 Euros and a trophy to Luke McShane.
   Nov-29-08 Portisch vs Korchnoi, 1983 (replies)
PKNJ: Yes, the point here is that heading into this fourth game of the Candidates quarterfinal, Portisch was already trailing by two full points. So he went in for sharp play, and gave up the exchange for two pawns with 33. Rxc3. And he rejected Korchnoi's sacrificial offer of perpetual ...
