I was a 1500 player in high school 40 years ago, and I am still. I love about half of chess, unfortunately it's not the half that makes you a really good chess player.

   Dec-11-19 Duras vs P P Saburov, 1906 (replies)
petemccabe: I wonder why Saburov took the bishop? Maybe he would have lost either way, but couldn't he see the resulting mate in two?
   Nov-30-19 J K Duda vs G Gajewski, 2016 (replies)
petemccabe: Camptown ladies sing this song, Duda, Duda.
   Sep-05-19 Huzman vs A Graf, 1982 (replies)
petemccabe: But seriously, Black needed to play 16. ... Be6. This is not great analysis, but even as a 1500 or so player, I saw that right away, and the Engine agrees.
   Aug-16-19 Tingjie Lei vs F Peralta, 2019 (replies)
petemccabe: paavoh: That's what I thought. I think black's last chance to defend was 30 Qh8. It's not an enviable position, but anything else looks like a quick mate.
   Aug-16-19 Korchnoi vs J M Bellon Lopez, 1986 (replies)
petemccabe: Arkekhino: That's that I thought as I played through the game. Stockfish likes Bg5, but either way it seems exd5 was not the right move.
   Aug-08-19 D Dordzhieva vs Kosteniuk, 2018 (replies)
petemccabe: Paging Tim Krabbé.
   Jul-08-19 Ivan Buljovcic vs Maric, 1967 (replies)
petemccabe: At the final position, it says "Three Time Repetition Claimable." But Black resigned. That would be quite the blunder. Is that message correct? It doesn't seem that the final position occurred previously.
   Jun-01-19 Kramnik vs Carlsen, 2017 (replies)
petemccabe: Slug is a synonym for punch, or hit. So a slugfest (usually one word) is a contest with lots of blows landed by both sides.
   Jun-01-19 K Gulamali vs A Tari, 2016 (replies)
petemccabe: A Tari Breakout.
   Feb-10-19 K Commons vs P Peev, 1976 (replies)
petemccabe: I'm not used to the pun providing a clue to the puzzle.
