Member since Apr-07-06 · Last seen Jul-02-22
My name is David Goldfarb; I live in Houston, TX. I haven't played any tournament chess in a while, although I check the problems here every day and am a Life Member of the USCF. My rating is about 1800. My favorite player is David Bronstein, though I couldn't play like him in a million years....

goldfarbdj: After 26. Bg6 Ke7, white is doing well and probably winning, but it's a lot less "clearly" than forced mate in two moves.

goldfarbdj: I have to admit that I didn't think of the underpromotion!

goldfarbdj: <Lloyd Gross>: In your line, why can't White just play 28. Ka1? As far as I can tell, Black has no way of giving check, and White is up a whole queen.

goldfarbdj: And I was the exact opposite: I saw 32. ... Ne4+ and didn't consider Nb1.
 
   Oct-13-21 Razuvaev vs Z Mestrovic, 1981 (replies)
 
goldfarbdj: My choice was 38. Ne7+, which has the disadvantage of not actually being a legal move.
 
   Oct-07-21 Blackburne vs J Schwarz, 1881 (replies)
 
goldfarbdj: I was wondering why 26. Rxh5 wouldn't work. I wasn't until I played through the game and then backed up to the problem position again that I realized 26. Rxh5 would be an illegal move.

goldfarbdj: Nice easy one even for a Monday! Check the queen sac — it forces the deflection and then it's easy to see that Rb6 will be mate.

goldfarbdj: Pretty sure that PJs Studio meant 19. Qc5 as actually played, not 17. Qc5. According to the quick analysis from Stockfish 11. exf4 is actually somewhat better, but Qc5 is very good.

goldfarbdj: Qf2+ was the intuitively obvious move, but it took me an oddly long time to notice that after the king took the knight, Qf3 was mate.

goldfarbdj: As with everyone else, I found Rxg2+ to be an obvious and only try. I ran into a little difficulty because I kept wanting to force mate, and after 37. Kf1 I couldn't. Finally I worked out that I could win the queen, and figured I needed to "settle" for that.
