Hi! My name is Tony and I live in Canada. My favorite players are Mikhail Tal, Bobby Fischer, and Gary Kasparov. My rating is currently unavailable (sorry). In case you want to know my age, I'm 12 years old.

Favorite Mating Pattern:
1.e4 c6 2.d4 d5 3.Nc3 dxe4 4.Nxe4 Nd7 5.Qe2 Ngf6 6.Nd6#

Final position of mating pattern:

Favorite Opening as White: English, Symmetrical Favorite Opening as Black: Grunfeld

A very strange puzzle:

By Carl Jaenisch (White to play and mate in ten. Note: The mate can be done 1 move with 1.Ng5#, 1.Rd5# or 1.Qd5# but I made ten moves just because of the final position; look for a smothered mate). Answer is in my Game Collection titled "Interesting Mating Patterns".

chesscrazy: <MorphyMatt> 52. Rxh6 doesn't win because the g-pawn would be able to queen. (52. Rxh6?? g2! 53. ____ g1=Q)
