Chess is not an art, is not a science. Chess is a fight.

   Oct-21-22 U.S. Championship (2022) (replies)
asiduodiego: <Petrosianic> Indeed. For me, that's REALLY the main issue. Turns out that, if you are an upcoming player, and you beat Magnus Carlsen in a game, if he "feels" something is funny, then you must be prepared to have your whole career analyzed by dubious "experts" online, to ...
   Sep-21-22 Julius Baer Generation Cup (2022) (replies)
asiduodiego: <shach matov> Oh lord. Please understand this simple idea: EITHER you make a direct accusation, OR you just move on, without acting in an underhanded way. These are your options. It's so hard to understand?. Magnus hasn't said anything, indeed, but with his behavior he ...
   Nov-26-21 Nepomniachtchi vs Carlsen, 2021 (replies)
asiduodiego: A very nice game. I think 8 ... Na5 was a very interesting move. I think it's an idea similar to the Marshall Gambit: black sacrifices a pawn in the center, but gains the two bishops, space and a lot of activity in return, but the compensation is not immediatly so aggressive as ...
   Jul-20-21 Myagmarsuren vs M Cuellar Gacharna, 1967 (replies)
asiduodiego: A nice tactic to win the Exchange and to put white in decisive strategic advantge, with a passed pawn on the h-column, and with pressure in the 8th file, which paralyzes black.
   Jun-02-21 N Khoudgarian vs D Abarca, 2012
asiduodiego: 19 Qh5??. A bad blunder, and a good lesson: sometimes you need to pick up your chips and just retire. 19 Qe2 is safe. Of course, black is going to finally capture in b2, but after Qf3, the queen is again in a good position to perhaps jump in the attack later on. A good game by ...
   Jun-02-21 Spassky vs Fischer, 1992 (replies)
asiduodiego: <RookFile> One thing about Fischer we all know is that he was very stingy in his conditions for matches, but also, that when he REALLY wanted to play, he yielded in his requirements, as he did many times in the 60s. I don't know what he was actually thinking at the time ...
   Jun-02-21 Staunton - Morphy Match (1858) (replies)
asiduodiego: <MissScarlett> It seems that you know the names of those "fallacies", but you don't understand the meaning of them. "Special pleading". The fallacy of requiring an exception when there is NO reason provided. In my argument I provided a reason on why cases such as the "1975
   Jun-02-21 Smagin vs N Vlassov, 1995 (replies)
asiduodiego: Nice tactic. As usual, the key in the mate sequence is the speed at which black's pieces can jump into action. Also, never forget the "secret" pin of the f pawn when the king is castled kingside.
   May-28-21 A Meek vs Morphy, 1855
asiduodiego: As many have commented, the key defensive manouver for white would have been after: 15 ... Rxe4+?! 16 Be3!. Suddenly, black's counterattack is stopped in its tracks. Qe7 is basically forced, and then white castles to safety (and with check) regaining momentum. It is a rather ...
   May-07-21 Lutikov vs V Osnos, 1965 (replies)
asiduodiego: A good example of a one-two punch. First I tried something on the Queenside, but it all lead to trades which improved Black's position. The key in the position is that almost all of Black's pieces are on the Queenside and the king is uncastled. That situation screams for a ...
