My bio: Ummm, I started playing chess once by accident (I thought it was just wierd checkers till someone explained how the pieces move).

Been losing games ever since.

   Qxf7 has kibitzed 12 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Oct-25-13 K Kirby vs L Wilken, 1961 (replies)
Qxf7: <morfishine> In your line, white should play 15 Rxf8 before proceeding with the Bf3 plan you outlined. At very worst, he walks out with a rook and bishop versus a knight in the endgame (via an eventual Bxb7). I'm not entirely convinced he doesn't have a checkmate in there ...
   Jun-19-13 R Dam vs D Norwood, 1988 (replies)
Qxf7: Sure. Suppose white makes some random move that doesn't drop his queen. For example 28 Qc3, Nxg3. White's completely screwed now. The threat on f2 is going to get him checkmated if he doesn't defend it, but anything he tries is going to hang the exchange (on e1) sending him into the ...
   Jul-15-12 Short vs I Cheparinov, 2008 (replies)
Qxf7: <shams> He did it for the same reason Short showed up late for the match. It's a deliberate display of poor-sportsmanship and contempt, designed to screw with the opponent's mental state. Some very strong players are particularly vulnerable to this sort of thing because of their
   Jul-12-12 Morphy vs NN, 1858 (replies)
Qxf7: I would have deviated with 5... Ne5. Of course I've also got the advantage of 150+ years of opening theory on the poor N.N. As for the actual sac on move 8, there's enough positional justification that any player with a rating above 1500 (moderate club player) should be able to explain
   Apr-26-12 Liu Qingnan vs Short, 2012
Qxf7: <White even tries 34.c5 a belated Bayonet, but it's way too late> How so? I actually think the sac had some promise to it had White followed up with more aggressive play down the D file. For example 33 e6 would have completely killed the ...e5 plan we saw in-game. [DIAGRAM] In ...

Qxf7: rilkefan: Stockfish (like most engines) is pretty useless at endgame analysis. The winning lines are typically beyond most engines event horizon, and the pruning makes matters far worse. Personally, I'd have played ... g6 at that point, aiming for ... Kd7 without dropping a pawn to ...
   Apr-01-12 Puck vs Troll, 1961 (replies)
Qxf7: Queenlover: Puck was the main character in A Midsummer Night's Dream. Also... Y U NO PLAY GOOD MOVES???
   Mar-14-12 Tal vs Ghitescu, 1963 (replies)
Qxf7: @ hehateme: In Soviet Russia, the pun recalls you!
   Mar-06-12 R Swinkels vs A Zatonskih, 2008
Qxf7: Quite an ef-fish-net middle game, although I was kindof cheering for white to convert the prawn up endgame. Honestly, I think he accepted the draw a bit too early, as further ex-salmon-ation may have found a winning line (hook and sinker).
   Feb-08-12 M Basman vs Keene, 1981 (replies)
Qxf7: What's wrong with Qxf7?! Also, worse than the 'mirror' defense for me was when I'd try to play the Alekhine and the opponent would respond with d3. Annoyed me to no end :-/.
