I'm a North American, but live in Guatemala.

In terms of chess, I'm an amateur of mediocre ability. I have loved chess since I was in grade school, but only played in one tournament, which was when I was a kid.

And yes, I do love cats.

catlover: This game lives up to its title.

catlover: I wonder if there is a better way to play black's side of this exchange variation. It looks like by move 8, white has managed to give black a cramped position.

catlover: <What if 25 ... fxg4? Then 26 Rc1, with the same idea as in the game?> Your idea looks like an improvement over what was played. Stockfish gives: +3.66 (21 ply) 26.Qg6+ Kh8 27.Rc1 c6 28.dxc6 Bxc6 29.Rc3 Re7 30.h6 f5 31.Qxd6 Ref7 32.Qg6 Bd5 33.Rc5 Rg8 34.Qh5 Be6 35.a3 Kh7 ...

catlover: I think the pun is based on the phrase "killing the fatted calf," which comes from one of Jesus' parables. It is what the joyful father decided to do when the prodigal son came home (Luke 15:11-32). If "fathead" refers to someone who makes errors like 23. f4? I think a lot of us ...

catlover: Great game title, especially in light of the role that white's knight played in the endgame.
   Nov-18-21 A Zatonskih vs G Kacheishvili, 2011 (replies)
catlover: Got it. I don't often get Thursday puzzles. Easy or not, I'll take it.
   Oct-25-21 S Sloan vs W Hook, 2009 (replies)
catlover: It is good to see comments from Sam Sloan about his play in this game, even if the comments were posted 10 years ago.
   Oct-18-21 O Privorotsky vs A Bukhover, 1960 (replies)
catlover: I love black's king walk right into the enemy camp, ending the perpetual check.
   Oct-11-21 Nunn vs Bronstein, 1975 (replies)
catlover: I always enjoy Bronstein's games.
   Oct-09-21 Nakamura vs Duda, 2021
catlover: If 34...Qxc1, 35 Rc4 and black will lose material.
