Just a hobbyist--about a strong Class A or weak Expert for now--still have dreams of achieving my master rating someday!

   Nov-11-20 Lutikov vs A Malevinsky, 1977
halito27: <TheaN> got it: after 34. Kxg3 Rxf3! (and not Rxh3) is the killer. It's trickier than it looks!
   Nov-10-20 Van der Sterren vs V Malaniuk, 1987 (replies)
halito27: <brulla> After 22. Qg4+ Kf8, how does white proceed? Any check on f5 is met with Bf6 followed by Qg6 and the black king escapes via e8. Remember, white has invested a bishop into this attack; once it's neutralized, black has the edge.
   Nov-04-20 J H Donner vs H Ree, 1971
halito27: <morfishine> Like a Comet!
   May-11-20 Barsov vs P H Nielsen, 2002 (replies)
halito27: 28...Bf6 is a howler. Instead, Black should snap off that dangerous c4 bishop and then the d3 pawn, protected by the only white square bishop on the board, becomes a real thorn in White's side. Black's 28th move pretty much ends it.
   Apr-26-20 Anna Kochukova vs E Mokshanova, 2018 (replies)
halito27: The Sicilian is always a fight for initiative and 14...h6 followed by 15..Nh7 is just an incredibly passive way to play it. 14...e5 with the idea of 15 f5 b5 is more active. 16 Bd3 is an inaccuracy that gave Black one last chance to equalize with ...dxe5 17 fxe5 f5! - with the idea
   Apr-04-20 E Zagorjansky vs Konstantinopolsky, 1943 (replies)
halito27: 28. gxf5 Qf6 and black remains at least a piece up. Best for white is probably 29. Qf1 Nxc5 30. Bxc5 and then Qc6! nabs the bishop due to the threat of Qh1.
   Mar-24-20 D Levy vs Ljubojevic, 1985 (replies)
halito27: This just might be my favorite pun ever on Actually made me LOL! :-)
   Nov-10-19 GCT Bucharest Rapid & Blitz (2019) (replies)
halito27: Woo hoo! Le Quang Liem! I live in Vietnam and he's a national hero here; everyone knows him. So good for chess!
   Nov-03-19 I Miladinovic vs A Istratescu, 1996 (replies)
halito27: A lesson in how to achieve a sustained initiative and what to do with it. Nice game.
   Oct-03-19 Jonathan Speelman
halito27: Haha, I love these. Thanks to you both for a good chuckle.
