Wanting to learn how to get better...what do the masters have that amatures don't? Is it just IQ, or practice...its a game of profound challenge...and I love a good challenge...and the fun of getting better. My rating is about 1350 on yahoo...not sure if that counts for much.

bullsbehad: Seeing as this was a "medium" puzzle I figured 18...Ng4 would be a good sacrifice to open up the F File and toss in the threat of a knight/bishop to the vulnerability of D4. I was not able to make that combo work, and probably rightly so. But even after giving up and checking, ...

bullsbehad: So what happens if White accepts with 24. Qxe4? Seems like there will be a Rook for Bishop/Knight exchange, but it seems white might have better options now?

bullsbehad: 16...Nb4 and then 55...Rc4! I can't believe I did not see that all the way through. I got to move 45, but then decided to solve cold fusion and move on with my life. If we had 14 day weeks, then this would be the puzzle on the 14th day "Infinitly put-on-your-straight-jacket ...

bullsbehad: Happy new year! I did not see this from any angle, hats off to those who did...quite the pristine combo played by black. I am going to blame my miss on the hangover. :o)
   Dec-31-08 Rajkovic vs M O Jovanovic, 2008 (replies)
bullsbehad: Could someone help me understand why Black resigned? I see a few moves that might suggest a material gain, but not sure about anything that forces Mate in the near term? Just my luck, I get moves 19-22 by the book, and then am stumped by the resign at the end. My mind knows beer ...

bullsbehad: To those that said "this is easy" or "too easy for Sunday," please go and claim your title of World Champion, then enlighten us why its "so easy." Who are you helping anyways with these comments? My pathetic analysis started at 12. Rxd6 as my first guess (considering it seemed so
   Dec-01-08 Timman vs Short, 1990 (replies)
bullsbehad: Two questions: 1. If you solve to "one of the possible" mates, but its not the one played, do you still pat yourself on the back? Or just say to yourself "silly amature, no wonder your not a GM!?" 2. Can someone explain or send me to a place to fully understand what a "Philidor
   Nov-24-08 Tukmakov vs D Norwood, 1990 (replies)
bullsbehad: Can't say I like the in-game move. 28. Rd7+ Qxd7 29. Nxe5+ Ke6 30. Nxd7 Kxd7 Black has now lost a rook and a knight for a pawn and queen, and in return is left in a cat and mouse position for mate. Yes, a reasonable person would resign by now, but I prefer the simple ...
   Nov-23-08 Maiorov vs I Zakharevich, 1997 (replies)
bullsbehad: Johnlspouge: Thank you for the analysis. Being new here, I have no means to estimate GM capabilities. I assume they are capable of caculating 5-7 moves out and have intuition/experience to help for several moves beyond that. I'd love to know for sure, and how fast they do it. ...
   Nov-15-08 Ulybin vs Sveshnikov, 1988 (replies)
bullsbehad: Can someone help me out? I don't have GM vision. How does black force a win if white replies with 23. Bg5? Does being down a bishop in GM play mean certain doom? Just seems like there might be a way to a draw, and that Ulibin might have resigned early?
