A chess player should never think about stupid things like winning or losing, especially while he (or she) is playing a game. Chess is about understanding and playing with all the tactical and strategical complexity hidden behind the position on the board. And enjoying the beauty of it, of course. Perhaps the greatest advantage of computers over humans isn't their calculation power, but their absence of feelings!

realbrob: We all know that chess champions are often nuts, but I really don't see the point of misbehaving or saying all that crap, especially against your opponents in a simul (who are supposed to be much weaker than you are).

realbrob: It seems that the theme of this week is take a pawn and get positional advantage. In these early days the first move is intuitive, but it's not easy at all to be sure that it's winning. Though, I have to say that even before 24..Kd8, Black's position looks fairly bad. He's up a ...

realbrob: Like many of you I was expecting something more "crushing", because it's Tuesday. I also felt stupid for a couple of minutes and I was like "I saw this combination that wins a pawn while there's a forced mate or something". Then I had to admit that there wasn't anything more ...

realbrob: Yes, though the spelling should be Deutsch (with S) and not "Deutch". By the way German and Dutch are closely related languages... I can't speak Dutch but it looks and sounds very very similar to the German dialects which are spoken in Nort-Western Germany.

realbrob: Hi everybody, I've been away from this site for a while.. What's up with the "Battle of the Brains"? (That's what it was called the team game in which you couldn't use engines). Doesn't it exist anymore?

realbrob: <sevenseaman: I do not see why Black K should withdraw to b8> Well, if 49..Kd8 it's pretty obvious that White trades down both pieces and wins easily. Maybe trickier is 49..Bd7, but White can simply play 50.Kxg6.

realbrob: <Koblenz> In your line, 33..Re1 34.Rxe1 Qxd5 [DIAGRAM]
   Oct-14-11 M Abbink vs Y H de Rover, 1997 (replies)
realbrob: Some kibitzers are saying that 18..Qd7 is the best defensive move for Black. Though, 18..Qd7 19.Qh6, and now what? JimFP thought there was ..Qxf6, but of course the move is illegal. Furthermore, after 18..Qd7, White could simply go on with the previous plan. 18..Qd7 19.Nh6+ Kh8 ...

realbrob: I was thinking the same thing. What happens after 40.Rc2 ?

realbrob: 6.Qxc3 b6 for me. Considering the position of our central pawns, it's rational to move the B to b7.
