I am a federal prosecutor in Texas. My stock openings are the English as white, the Qa5 Scandinavian against e4 and the Leningrad Dutch against just about everything else. My favorite players are Morphy & Alekhine, however I also love Eric Schiller's games - especially his miniatures. My favorite chess author is Jeremy Silman and my favorite chess video instructor is Andrew Martin. With respect to software, I use Chessmaster, Personal Chess Trainer and Toby Deep Tactics. My favorite chess truism: Chess is aerobics for the brain!

   Jan-30-06 NN vs F von Mauvillon, 1804 (replies)
p8riot: Why not 20. QxR+ Ke7 (forced) 21. Qf6+ ???
   Jan-09-06 Kengis vs R Djurhuus, 1991 (replies)
p8riot: Does 18. Nf3 save the day? It prevents Bg5+ and Qd4+. It also hems in Black's Queen.
   Sep-29-05 Topalov vs Anand, 2005 (replies)
p8riot: 33. Qg6 followed by 34. Bh6 and black would have been hard-pressed to avoid mate.
   Sep-21-05 Tarrasch vs Adolf Mannheimer, 1880 (replies)
p8riot: But for the Bishop pin, 22. ...RxR 23.QxR QxQ#
   Aug-03-05 L Espig vs A Graf, 2004
p8riot: I think Black has a winning end game. His Bishop controls both the c and d queening squares while White's Bishop is pretty useless. Black will trade Queens and get his King over to support his c pawn.
   Jul-31-05 I Pleci vs L Endzelins, 1939 (replies)
p8riot: 12. Be8+ Kf8 13. Bh5#
   Jul-31-05 L Day vs S Gravel, 1996 (replies)
p8riot: 32. Re4
   Jun-22-05 Hydra vs Adams, 2005 (replies)
p8riot: 27. ...Rf6 is interesting - attacking both the Rook and Queen. Am I missing anything obvious?
   May-17-05 L Tamarkin vs E Schiller, 1979 (replies)
p8riot: Shiller prefers the wrath of kan to the borg (grob backwards). I know I've moved to Star Trek - but it was too good to resist. At least it's in the same genre.
   Mar-11-05 Denker vs Gonzalez, 1945 (replies)
p8riot: Check out this amazing discovered checkmate by the (recently) late great Arnold Denker! :^)
