Nicole DeLaittre. From Seattle. Grad student of music. Self-taught chess player. Shirov, Nunn, Karpov, Max Euwe, and generally players which seem like they add art to the game are my favorite.

   Jul-13-11 G Kursuz vs C Andersson, 2007 (replies)
ruinme: I don't understand this game at all.. White had two times to get a winning position (like when black played ...23. Nb6 and white never played Nf4, but instead, traded off his pieces/ and near the end, when black played ...29. Kf8 instead of f5! and now white can win with exf6, ...

ruinme: At the beginning black seemed so lost.. did black know what he was doing the whole time or just recover brilliantly?
   Nov-10-09 Cochrane vs Somacarana, 1855
ruinme: White completely had the advantage here.. except he blundered it away.
   Nov-09-09 Reichert vs E Diemer, 1950 (replies)
ruinme: Sorry... I just realized the King can take.. the rook doesnt have to take. Clearly grandmasters wouldn't miss a mate in one

ruinme: This game should be put in a book and annotated!

ruinme: I mean, I saw some pretty lines and could see why black could lose if he didn't protect the d6 square he'd be in trouble, I just want another opinion and more lines.

ruinme: For some reason, the possibilities of this endgame (if you can call it an endgame) really has me confused. When I looked at this part of johnlspouge i got confused... 9.Kd3 Nf3 40.Q moves Nh2 (threatening 40...f1=Q)Queen moves where? and I remained confused when I looked at Jim from ...

ruinme: This game deserves to be put in a book w/Shirov analyzing it. Shirov, where are you? Analyze this game and send it to me thru mail please. Thankyou.
   Apr-03-08 A Anastasian vs Yermolinsky, 1987 (replies)
ruinme: thanks for the clarity FSR, i was temporarily thrown off by whoever put down 22...Bxe3+ until I saw your better move 22...Qh2+. Alphastar, thanks for the bishop variation. When I saw this puzzle, the rook sac intuitively looked right, it was the move that called out to me. however,
