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.

   Sep-12-22 Hromadka vs K Havasi, 1936 (replies)
dhotts: Good question, where did White go wrong? Tough to see when its an open game after 12 moves. White's 14.Bf4? move, though seemingly natural, takes the pressure off Black allowing Black to release his Queenside pieces. White needs to continue pressure with 14. Qd4 followed by (1) ...

dhotts: Firouzja outplayed Mamedyarov today in a very creative game...This game is not usual for two Super GMs. Firouzja is bringing a whole new game to the chess board, sort of reminds of Morozevich?
   Sep-07-22 Bareev vs A Kosten, 1991 (replies)
dhotts: Very strange game between two GMs. It was as if the two GMs kept moving pieces aimlessly until one (Kosten) made a mistake. Starting from the opening all the way through to the end, it was some of the most counter-intuitive chess I've seen from GMs???....Comments?
   Sep-03-22 P Dely vs J H Donner, 1961 (replies)
dhotts: Great puzzle! Tough position for White in blitz with Black trap set!....GOTD "Beware the Donner Pass"
   Sep-01-22 N Kosintseva vs Ju Wenjun, 2009 (replies)
dhotts: Jews experienced earliest form of organized slavery. They should demand reparations from Egypt. In addition to accrued interest over thousands of years, hardship and suffering for the wanderers should be factored in.
   Aug-25-22 T Bond vs A J Goldsby, 2008 (replies)
dhotts: Everyone knows that if the pot is not being stirred, the contents will burn. Welcome back Master AJ!!!!
   Aug-02-22 A Romero Holmes vs Lobron, 1987 (replies)
dhotts: The real puzzle (maybe a Friday/Saturday) is two moves earlier 27. Nb6, Black to move!
   Aug-01-22 Romanishin vs Dorfman, 1992
dhotts: Hard to believe a GM can make 5 Queen moves in the first 11???? This game was thrown as both players are from Ukraine and same age...Nobody above 1600 moves their Q five out 11 first moves....Note : after 5 Q moves, the Black Q ends up at her starting position.
   Jul-17-22 Aronian vs Carlsen, 2010 (replies)
dhotts: Whenever I play a blindfold game, my opponent keeps knocking over all the pieces. Quite frustrating but also comical.
   Jul-10-22 Vachier-Lagrave vs Aronian, 2013 (replies)
dhotts: The real puzzle centers around a move Super GM MVL missed. <Johnydeep> claims this to be an easy puzzle even though he stopped thinking (not so "deep") after 36.Bd5. The real difficult move to find that MVL did not was 38.Qg6 !! instead of what MVL played 38.Qe6, which loses. ...
