pogo5
Member since Sep-12-03
I am a complete addict living in Paris, France. Were it not for my wife and kids, as well as some work duties, I could play and analyse all day and night. I mostly play correspondence chess on letsplaychess.com under the nickname 'papadoble', meet me there!

   Feb-17-09 A Gibaud vs F Lazard, 1924 (replies)
 
pogo5: <Without this game, neither he nor Lazard would be remembered at all> Not true, Frédéric Lazard is well known as a composer of chess studies
 
   Dec-18-06 Bledow vs K Schorn, 1839 (replies)
 
pogo5: There is no stipulation for this puzzle except "White to play". Therefore any winning line is solution. Of course the mate in two is the most elegant and the one experienced players should spot within seconds/minutes. But as said above by a Tal worshipper "There's gonna be times ...
 
   Dec-04-06 E Eliskases vs Bogoljubov, 1939 (replies)
 
pogo5: I guess the game score has been corrected from 55.Kg1? which loses, as wrongly given on cheslive.de, to 55.Kf1 :-)
 
   Jul-11-06 Y Yakovich vs M Schepetkova, 2004 (replies)
 
pogo5: 24.Rf8+ , a line-clearance sacrifice that also leads to a self-block by the Black Q or R on f8 so as to allow the mate 25.Qd7# Very easy when you are used to solving mate in two problems!! I recommend http://dhost.info/matein2/index.php for mate in two practising :-) Hard ...
 
   Mar-01-06 Rossolimo vs I Romanenko, 1948 (replies)
 
pogo5: Amazing combination indeed! The last move is particularly beautiful... In case of 11...Qb6 , the tail of the combination has to be modified: 11...Qb6 12.exd6+ Kf8 13.Re8+ Kxe8 14.Qe2+ Kf8 15.Be7+ Ke8 and then 16.Re1!, because 16.Bd8+? Kxd8 17.Ng5 would now fail to 17...Qxd6!. ...

pogo5: <erimiro1><such puzzles don't belong here> Do you fully appreciate how insulting this kind of comment must be to the readers who failed to solve the puzzle? I would rather think that _you_ do not belong here!
 
   Oct-29-05 Jobava vs Galego, 2005 (replies)
 
pogo5: Black's attempt to free his game by 18...Ncxe4 backfires and he gets neatly crushed in ten more moves. Instead of 26.Rg4, the spectacular 26.Rd5(!) also wins: 26...exd5 27.Bxg7+ Kxg7 28.Qg6+ Kh8 29.Bg8 Rxg8 30.Qh6#
 
   Oct-24-05 Anand vs Van Wely, 1997 (replies)
 
pogo5: <jahhaj> Agreed
 
   Oct-22-05 Karasev vs K Klaman, 1967 (replies)
 
pogo5: 1.Rg6 springs to the eye but 1...Rg8 defends, and then neither 2.Rxg8+ Kxg8 3.Rf4 Rd1+ 4.Kh2 Qe5 nor, obviously, 2.Rxf7 Qxf7 will do. This I had been pondering for 20 minutes or so, then I had to take care my 9 months daughter who was awakening and suddenly I hit on 1.Re6, the rook ...

pogo5: I have found "The System" fascinating in many aspects. Its "scientific approach" may well be criticized: indeed "The System" contains many dubious postulates, the most important being that White has a theoretical win in the starting position, i.e. the antithesis of Adorjan's "Black is
