I am 29 year old chess enthusiast that really hasn't had a chance to play in many tournaments. My favorite hobby is of course chess, and though I don't get to play in otb tournaments, internet chess is great. Pogo, yahoo, fics,, and are all great sites. I also enjoy golf and ultimate frisbee in my spare time.

erad1288: Any chance chessgames could get the A0 vs Stockfish games into the database?
   Sep-08-16 Duda vs G Gajewski, 2016 (replies)
erad1288: Could someone help me understand 67.Kb2 Qe6? I don't understand why white voluntarily hands the pawn to black and why black doesn't simply oblige.
   May-07-16 Ding Liren vs So, 2016 (replies)
erad1288: I'm pretty sure that the answer is 38...Kxf7 39. Qc7+ Kg6 40. Qf4 and Black is done. He can't trade Q's because the pawn endgame is whites, and otherwise white will pick up f3 or b4 with the same problems for black.

erad1288: Kf2 Ne4+ looks just as over to me. At least the way Grant did it, Hawkins had to at least find the Bh3 tactic.

erad1288: <Fanques Fair> Do you mean 23... Nxf4? If so, then try 24. Qc4+. The variation goes 24. Qc4+ Kh8 25. Nf7+ Kg8 26. Nh6+ Kh8 27.Qg8+ Rxg8 29. Nf7# Black could throw his Knight to delay the mate by 1 move with 24... Nd5 or 24...Ne6 but it really changes nothing.
   Aug-07-12 Barcza vs O Troianescu, 1948 (replies)
erad1288: <PeterThePatzer> 22. Nf6 ends black's resistance. (22.Nf6 Nxf6 (...22 fxg4 23. Qxh7#) 23.Qxf6#) There is simply nothing black can do to prevent checkmate.
   Feb-16-12 G Papp vs F Armbrust, 2005 (replies)
erad1288: unless the score is wrong, Qxe7 and black just wins. What the heck am I missing?
   May-05-11 Lilienthal vs Alekhine, 1933
erad1288: I'd take white if pushed since he's better able to mobilize his forces to the center and does have a couple of isolated pawn islands to play against.
   Apr-19-11 Kaidanov vs Shankland, 2011 (replies)
erad1288: <howl> dxe5 would have been worse (speaking by computer evals -1.6 for fxe5 vs -3.6 for dxe5) because black can throw in 15...Bc5+ 16...Ng4 and 17...Qh4 with great effect
   Mar-18-11 L'Ami vs I Sokolov, 2008 (replies)
erad1288: As far as I can see <sufferingbruin> there are some problems with Nd5+. I had a good look at that too thinking, well don't take the rook, but seemingly it's fine to take the knight. 27.Nd5+?? exd5 28. R6xd5 Qc3+ and black is just up a knight and wins. If 28.R1xd5, then black ...
