The King Returns: I'm not an expert by any streach of the imagination, but here are my thoughts on the games: Kasim-Adams at move 23: Looks kind of drawish to me. The black pieces seem to be more active than white, but I don't see an all out attack coming any time soon. Vallejo-Kasp at move ...
 
   Nov-18-04 Schlechter vs Duras, 1910 (replies)
 
The King Returns: Did anyone consider the following line: 101...Nxb4 102.Kxb4 e5 At this point things seem unclear (maybe because I can't follow things thru to the end). If now 103.dxe5, then 103...d4 will pin the white knight to the king (because of the bishop on e1). It also looks like ...

The King Returns: Does anyone think the following subtle move also wins: 37...Qh3 This move pins the white knight against the white queen, attacks thr rook (which now must be guarded somehow by white), and also presents the threat of 38...Ng3+, where the knight cannot be taken because of the

The King Returns: I personally see nothing wrong with the draw. It's a part of the game. It's completely equal. As a player, you never have to agree to a draw if you don't want to. And you don't even need to believe that the positions are equal. It's you're right to offer and/or accept a ...

The King Returns: When a grandmaster goes into a deep think, are they typically following a few probable lines of moves as deep as they can see, or are they gearing more towards every possible response, and leaving "no stone unturned", and not calculating as deep. Ideally, it would seem that
 
   Sep-10-04 Krasenkow vs Adianto, 1998 (replies)
 
The King Returns: I can't believe I got this one...and under 30 seconds. Even the Monday puxzzles take me longer than that. And I'm not sure I've ever gotten a Friday puzzle before. Maybe I'm actually learning something and I don't even know it! Or maybe there's just something about this ...

The King Returns: white's minor pieces are protecting his two central pawns. I think each player should try to bring his rooks into the game. Keep developing...
 
   Jun-12-03 Tarrasch vs K Eckart, 1892 (replies)
 
The King Returns: Very elegant mate. All of Tarrasch's pieces are on perfect squares for the attack. I always like when games are played out to checkmate, too. Was Eckart thinking that Tarrasch would miss mate after the rook sacrafice?!?
 
   May-22-03 Blackburne vs J G Witton, 1885 (replies)
 
The King Returns: I actually got this one! The first one ever. I like how black played it out to checkmate. You don't see that too much these days =). Or maybe it was just that Witton didn't see checkmate coming.

The King Returns: how does this win for white? I'm a beginning chess player...
