I am an engineer who lives in rural south central Tennessee. I was mesmerized by Bobby Fischer as a boy. I actually got interested in the game seeing 'box scores' of his games with Spassky in the sports pages. Don't have arating yet.

   Jul-13-12 J A Curdo vs J Fried, 1993 (replies)
hrobert5: I did this early this AM before food and drink, so excuse me if I screw it up! 16. exd5 cxd5 17. Bxh6 gxh6 18. Qxf6 leaving d6 Bishop trapped for the taking...Nxd6 or Nxe7 scot free.

hrobert5: I too was going for a sac through the e3 position; could see Ng3 was deadly, but couldn't get the details worked out. I'll give myself 1/2 point. :(
   Jul-11-12 A Karpatchev vs R Oney, 2006 (replies)
hrobert5: Zatrikion: 10. Nb5 and that's it. Double threat from white (Nc7+ and R is lost and secondly black Queen threatened) I agree, that's the line I took. It gives me the option of Nc7 OR Nd6; Black may double cross us and decline the (eventual) Queen exchange. And, if Black does indeed ...

hrobert5: <24.Qxg7+ Kxg7 25.Nxe6+ fxe6 26.Bxc7> Its all good after that!
   Jul-09-12 Karpov vs Geller, 1983 (replies)
hrobert5: I saw the 31. Qxc4 immediately; but the end took a few minutes longer. (I don't sweat black responding Re7) 31. Qxc4 Re7 32. Qxf7+ Rxf7 33. Rxf7#
   Jul-08-12 S Megaranto vs O Barbosa, 2012 (replies)
hrobert5: Sorry, I skipped a line in my transcription: 57. exf8=Q?+ Kxf8
   Jul-07-12 Marshall vs W Napier, 1898 (replies)
hrobert5: Yeah, I missed the pawn at c3 covering for Qd2+; should have known there was no other option but the underpromote!
   Jul-06-12 Russia - China (2012) (replies)
hrobert5: I'm really impressed with Jakovenko. Two wins three draws no losses. Am I wrong or is he the only one in the tournament without a loss?
   Jul-06-12 Karpov vs Timman, 1986 (replies)
hrobert5: Yeah, I got d8=n+ to avoid perpetual check, then Rb7 this morning then went to work; too tired to hammer out all the details.
   Jul-05-12 A Reshko vs O Kaminsky, 1972 (replies)
hrobert5: Looking at SuperPatzer77's "final position" board, Black at best can hold out four more moves: K-g7, 64. Q-a7+ K-g8, 65. Q-f7+ K-h8 66. g7+ K-h7 67. g8=Q mate
