ZoneChess
Member since Dec-26-20 · Last seen Jan-21-21
I'm a chess player from Tilburg, the Netherlands. Currently entering more serious grounds. Going into Nimzo chess theory and play the old Colle and Zukertort systems of attack a lot. Favorite players: MC, Tal, Van Geet.

   Jan-21-21 J M Hodgson vs Short, 1987
 
ZoneChess: Note also the importance of the knight outpost. Short shows it to the opponent, then retreats the knight all the way, then re-establishes it without the opponent having developed much counterplay in the meantime.
 
   Jan-13-21 J Dourerassou vs B Taddei, 2014
 
ZoneChess: A seemingly useless gambit since if not taken back white gets the extra central runner...?
 
   Jan-13-21 M Szymanski vs P Thorarinsson, 2001
 
ZoneChess: Not confusing at all. When playing c5 in response to d4 in the Sicilian Dragon this is called the Pterodactyl. Then there are the variations: - Siroccopteryx - Benoni beefeater - Pteranodon - Rhamphorhynchus - Central Quetzalcoatlus Gambit Please stop calling it the ...
 
   Jan-13-21 Z Krnic vs K van der Weide, 2000
 
ZoneChess: I learned that in the US this is better known as the Sniper opening. But seriously, what's wrong with pterodactyl... and rhamphorhynchus... A very strong opening and it is interesting how van der Weide chooses to replace the sniper bishop with the queen, a sane choice also given ...
 
   Jan-13-21 T Krabbe vs P de Rooi, 1964
 
ZoneChess: How is this the Kasparov attack when Garri was a 1-year old infant at the time? Why not name the attack after the first one who played it...
 
   Jan-12-21 Leko vs Svidler, 1996
 
ZoneChess: Peter petered out badly.
 
   Jan-12-21 Van Wely vs Karpov, 1996 (replies)
 
ZoneChess: I agree, this is a sweet example of Van Wely's perfect play. I still don't fully understand 32. Ng5+
 
   Jan-12-21 Shirov vs Van Wely, 2007 (replies)
 
ZoneChess: Ha! Van Wely has definitely studied Karjakin-Anand from the previous year there!
 
   Jan-12-21 Van Wely vs Kiril D Georgiev, 1997 (replies)
 
ZoneChess: Sometimes one wonders what top-level grandmaster chess is like. One may think it is like highly complicated science. The zenith of civilization's achievement. Then it slowly starts to sink in that it is more like the most brutal level of warfare, the atomic bomb among swords. I ...
 
   Jan-12-21 B Finegold vs J Waxman, 1987
 
ZoneChess: In other words, Qe4 is an inescapable fork. Also note that white has a completely winning position with the placement of his bishop and knight.
