dhotts
Member since May-06-03
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.

   Apr-18-22 M Bluvshtein vs D Seyb, 2010
 
dhotts: <Shrinarayanan> 28...Nd2+ does not win for black but instead loses. 29. Kc1 and both 29...Nb3+ and 29...Qe4 both lose. Wow this is a great puzzle as people believe 28...Nd2+ wins??????
 
   Feb-02-22 Van Wely vs Stellwagen, 2009 (replies)
 
dhotts: Amazing how Black found 26...Nd5!!, but then missed the Mate in 5 playing 28...Qg2? where 28...Bc3+ gives a sure fire mate in 5.
 
   Jan-20-22 Firouzja vs Lupulescu, 2019 (replies)
 
dhotts: 29. Rxd5 and white has an equal game 29. e7?? was a big boo boo...24...Ra4! was black's best move at the time.
 
   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
