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.

   Jan-05-22 D Palo vs P H Nielsen, 2003 (replies)
dhotts: Looks like GM Palo missed this puzzle when he blundered with 33. Qc3??? missing the mate and the simple 33. Qxe4 with a close game.
   Dec-27-21 Lachex vs J Nogueiras, 1990 (replies)
dhotts: Computers of today would not have missed the immediate path to destruction with 6.Bxf7!...6.Ng5 was OK, but not the best.
   Dec-16-21 G Niemand vs P Keffler, 1970 (replies)
dhotts: Great game as most Traxler games are...Keffler played another excellent correspondence game the year before, which he won in 18 moves. Surprising for such short games in correspondence chess?
   Dec-14-21 J Schulten vs Morphy, 1857 (replies)
dhotts: Schulten one one game against Morphy. CG database shows 71 games for Schulten and this win against Morphy was his last being his 46th game, his 25 remaining games were losses.
   Oct-28-21 Lputian vs Dlugy, 1998 (replies)
dhotts: Rook is late, game over!....18...Rd8 should have been played one move earlier....Too late for the Rook!
   Oct-26-21 Gruenfeld vs Kmoch, 1926
dhotts: Hans sure Kmoch'ed that game up!
   Oct-20-21 Lokvenc vs Keres, 1943
dhotts: Another Keres Classic!
   Sep-14-21 J Frenklakh vs E Schiller, 1994 (replies)
dhotts: White was happy to be mated; otherwise, he would lose his Queen on the next move.
   Sep-13-21 Carlsen vs Firouzja, 2021 (replies)
dhotts: Magnus, the Mozart of Chess, demonstrates again how to win drawn positions...As this game was unfolding and Magnus pushed his pawn 10.a5, I was wondering if there was a strategic reason for this move...As the game progressed some commentators were complaining how Magnus plays out ...
   Aug-11-21 Westerinen vs Suetin, 1976
dhotts: Black had much more play had he chosen 19...fxg3! with definite draw or better chances...For example 20. dxc5 fxg2+ 21. Qxg2 d4 22.Ne4 Bxe4 23.Rexe4 Ng5 24. Qxd4 Nxf3+ with an equal for Black.
