I was an 1800 player 25 years ago. I played in about 6 or 7 tournaments to reach that rating which could have been a bit deflated as I was a young, improving player at the time. But, at the time, I was a top Michigan Junior player and played Michigan Champions. My late grandfather, George Eastman is in the Michigan Chess Hall of Fame winning the state title 8 times. He was also Toronto champion six times spanning from the 20ís and 30ís. He was Canadian champion in 1931. He played some of the legends, Alekhine, Fine, Reshevsky to name a few.

I got into the IT field 25 years ago and I didnít have much time to devote to chess. Now, Iím getting back to chess as time permits.

   Feb-01-08 Nunn vs J van der Tuuk, 1986 (replies)
buzzymind: <dzechiel>, After 37. ♖d4 ♕f3 38. ♕b4 and now if 38. ♖xc6 39. ♕f8+ appears to be quicker to me.
   Sep-07-06 J Polgar vs I Rogers, 1993 (replies)
buzzymind: Also in my above comment, we may consider that white doesn't even need to play 46. fxe6. He may be better off leaving the e-file closed, maybe 46. f6.
   Aug-02-06 A Kovacevic vs Kramnik, 1991 (replies)
buzzymind: <Brent> Yes, of course it is always better to avoid mate quickly. I donít have a chess board or a computer, but from what I can see off the bat is perhaps after 38. ♕e3 ♖xe3 39. ♔xe3 f4+ 40. ♔e2 (not 40. ♔d2 as ♕a2 mates) and now we go ...
   Mar-30-06 S Kuemin vs R Staechelin, 2005 (replies)
buzzymind: <Sleepeyeguy> I also saw your line 19.♖c7 ♕d8 20.♖d7 ♕xd7 21.♕h6 ♗f6 22.♗xf6. Good catch ! I expected this to be in the real game. The idea being to try to get the queen off the dark squares so he can't recapture via Queen after ...
   Mar-23-06 Kasimdzhanov vs J Polgar, 2005 (replies)
buzzymind: <The17thPawn> I was wondering the same thing how 49.♕e8+ leaves the queen hanging. But, I was thinking the same as some others here. I actually picked the immediate 45.♖e8+ and saw the appropriate lines. That being said, I knew black didn't have to take the ...
   Feb-10-06 Larry Evans vs Uhlmann, 1971 (replies)
buzzymind: Like some others here I thought of 36. ♕f7. Not that I didn't consider 36. ♗xg5, I liked 36. ♕f7 because it limits black's options and I've made the threat 37. ♗xg5 very real (sometimes the threat is stronger than the action). In addition, I didn't like ...
   Feb-07-06 Hromadka vs Tarrasch, 1922 (replies)
buzzymind: Like others I saw 29.♕h6.
   Nov-08-05 Ed. Lasker vs F Englund, 1913 (replies)
buzzymind: <patzer2> Yes, I don't have this kind of a computer and I don't have a board with me right now, but I was thinking along the lines of your #1 line if black were to play 15...c6. The idea is after black goes Qc7, white can strive to double the rooks on the e file, white's Q ...
   Oct-27-05 Karpov vs G Needleman, 2005 (replies)
buzzymind: Just maybe Iím getting my old playing strength back (I havenít played serious chess in 25 years but at the time I was 1800 rating, but 2000+ strength as I was young and improving). Iím not expecting to ever be as good as my grandfather (George Eastman, Michigan Champion 8 times), ...
   Oct-24-05 Anand vs Van Wely, 1997 (replies)
buzzymind: The position reeks of a potential zugswang from the get go (maybe this weeks theme?). Just look how black is tied down. This is probably why I saw this quickly. Whenever things are tied down, zugswang becomes a possibility and should be explored. Now, sure Bd6+ wins, because the ...
