Member since Jul-06-08
I currently reside in Ohio, utilize chess as a form of play therapy, and enjoy sitting at the feet of the masters, especially Capablanca, Lasker, Morphy, Nimzowitsch, Fischer, Petrosian, Tal, Bronstein, Keres, Smyslov, Gligoric, Nezhmetdinov, Geller, Wenzhe, Karpov, and Alekhine. Their wisdom is immense and timeless...

   Jul-15-19 AlphaZero vs Stockfish, 2018 (replies)
birthtimes: For a similar game, see Khademalsharieh (2468) vs. Kosteniuk (2537) Event: Frauenbundesliga 2018-19 Site: GER Round: 6.2 Date: 01/13/2019 ECO: E18 Score: 1-0
   Dec-27-17 Korchnoi vs Fridman, 2008
birthtimes: So what do the engines say regarding an improvement for Korchnoi here in this highly innovative line?!
   Dec-25-17 Robatsch vs Andersson, 1972 (replies)
birthtimes: Stunning Queen Sacrifice by Andersson!
   Dec-25-17 Smejkal vs Andersson, 1969
birthtimes: Superb never-say-die fighting spirit here by Andersson, in spite of all the mistakes on both sides.
   Dec-25-17 A Dueckstein vs Andersson, 1969 (replies)
birthtimes: Dueckstein is DUCK SOUP in this brilliancy by Andersson! Very instructional deflection sacrifices, an obstruction sacrifice, and how to finish the job with two rooks on the 7th aided by the queen herself!
   Dec-25-17 Salov vs Karpov, 1994
birthtimes: Why not 42...cxb?! By not doing so, Karpov allows an outside protected passed pawn to be created...
   Dec-25-17 Anand vs Karpov, 1994 (replies)
birthtimes: Karpov in his career playing the Taimanov as Black won 13 games, drew 17 games, and lost only twice. This was his first loss in the Taimanov. Ljubojevic needs to revise his statement.
   Sep-25-14 Kasparov vs Shirov, 1994 (replies)
birthtimes: 23...Bh6 subjected this bishop to the status of a relative non-existent worker, as Lasker would say. 23...Bd8 looks like a better place to do some useful work as it covers the b6 square. Rudolf Spielmann also mentions this principle--as well as the importance of a created passed ...
   Sep-25-14 L Van Vliet vs Nimzowitsch, 1907 (replies)
birthtimes: This game is annotated by Nimzowitsch in his book entitled, "Blockade." I suspect he would have played 20...Ne8 if White had played 20.e5!?
   Sep-24-14 Nimzowitsch vs A Nilsson, 1924
birthtimes: This game is annotated by Nimzowitsch from moves 33 to 47 in his book entitled, "Blockade"!!! Very instructive annotation!!!
