dumbgai: <Sally Simpson> That's a simple but aesthetically pleasing problem. 1. Rh8 (threatening a8=Q/R#) 1...Kxa7 (if ...Ka5 2. Rh4 and the same mate) 2. Rxh1 And now either 2...Ka8 3. Kc7 Ka7 4. Ra1#, or 2...Kb8 3. Ra1 Kc8 4. Ra8#, or 2...Ka6 3. Ra1#. No matter what, white's rook ...

dumbgai: The black king is in the wrong position in your diagram.
   Dec-05-19 Capablanca vs Jan Selman, 1931 (replies)
dumbgai: Props to black for not being afraid to attack Capaís position.
   Dec-05-19 S Martinovic vs Luis Neves Da Silva, 2017 (replies)
dumbgai: It turns out putting your king on a8 and queen on b8 is not a winning strategy.

dumbgai: When I was a kid I read an abridged version of David Copperfield for children, and it didnít make much of an impression. Then as an adult I read the proper thing and realized that Dickens is really good at telling you that life sucks ass.
   Nov-05-19 W Adams vs W Shipman, 1948 (replies)
dumbgai: Pretty crazy game, featuring 6 total queens over the course of the game.
   Oct-31-19 T Nabaty vs Yu Yangyi, 2019
dumbgai: Embarrassing to play this out for as long as white did. The position was resignable by move 40, if not earlier.
   Oct-31-19 Anand vs Wang Hao, 2019
dumbgai: Even without 28. Rxe4 white's position is already difficult to defend. The queenside rook is badly placed, his pawns are weak, and black is a pawn up in addition to his superior piece placement.

dumbgai: Having a horrible tournament at the World Junior Girls. As the top seed and only player rated 2500+, she has only 3.5/6 against opponents with an average rating of ~2000. Soon to be 4/7 as the position is dead drawn with her 2173-rated opponent in round 7.

dumbgai: 4...Ng8 looks like such a strange move but black will win the e5 pawn in exchange for falling behind in piece development.
