I started playing chess at 5 years old and didn't start tournament play until 13. I quickly road up the ladder and stopped playing tournament chess as an expert at age 16 in order to pursue educational matters. Paul Kere's book, Grandmaster of Chess, was my chess trainer and was an excellent guide on how to approach this great game. Now I just sit on the sidelines watching great players.

dhotts: <Patzer2> it took a GM to bring the win home 78 moves later...If a GM truly is a piece up (+3) then it should happen much sooner. I tend to agree with you, the silicon evaluation is heavy handed in assessing the Black Queen's mobility.
   Oct-07-19 V Keymer vs S P Rahul, 2019
dhotts: Very patient play by Keymer, when will Vincent reach GM?
   Oct-04-19 R Loetscher vs M Bluebaum, 2016 (replies)
dhotts: My first choice was 28...Bxg2 to clean up the mess (reduce complexity) in the ensuing phase 29.Qxg2 Rg6 30.Qf1 then play 30...e5 with much greater effect!
   Oct-03-19 Radjabov vs Ding Liren, 2019 (replies)
dhotts: Very interesting how Teimour 16th move in the first game 16.Nd2 leads to a draw and in the second game as white 16.Bd3 leads to win...The engines did not see a big difference, but it was amazing how quickly white won from that point.
   Jul-18-19 Alatortsev vs G Goldberg, 1932 (replies)
dhotts: White missed the more convincing line of 29. Bc8! which wins more easily.
   Jul-10-19 Kholmov vs Bronstein, 1965 (replies)
dhotts: It appears that Black's 19...Bg5 move lead to his demise. Much better and more challenging for White was 19...Nxe5, then White must find 20.Ne4 to maintain a slight advantage or be destroyed.
   Jul-09-19 AlphaZero vs Stockfish, 2018 (replies)
dhotts: It appears that Stockfish missed 37...f6 playing instead 37...Rd8 which ultimately lead to SF's demise....Very equal game until that missed move to maintain equality.
   Jun-25-19 Miles vs C W Pritchett, 1982 (replies)
dhotts: Black committed suicide with 33...Kh8, where the move 33...Kh7 was even....Pritchett missed it, Miles did not!
   Jun-20-19 Leko vs E Ghaem Maghami, 2001 (replies)
dhotts: 22....Bc3 may have saved Black, certainly better than 22...Rg8? It seems that 22...Bc3 23.Nxc3 Rg8 24.Ne4 Rxg7 and black has fighting chances.
   Mar-23-19 N Grandelius vs V Keymer, 2019 (replies)
dhotts: Crushing defeat so quick and effortless, what did Keymer do wrong in the opening?
