I coach my children's elementary school chess club. I play blitz on FICS (also as ruzon) and am ranked roughly in the top third right now. I'm using this site to help get better. After many years, I do seem to be playing better. I played my first tournament and came out at USCF 1629P6.

ruzon: <stacase: I had to laugh when I saw that Queenie was snowed in and had no place to go. If Black takes the Knight, I came up with this: 11...Kxe6 12. Qd5+ Kf6 13. Bg5+ Kg6 14. Qf5+ Kh5 15. Bxe7+ Kh6 16. Bxd8> 16. Qg5#

ruzon: <EdC: I don't see anything quick after 26...Rf8> 26...Rf8 27. Rh7 Bxg2 28. Rxf7+ Rxf7 29. Qxf7+ Kd8 30. g7 +-

ruzon: <Cheapo by the Dozen> Except White found that win on move 42!
   Nov-30-17 G Barbero vs G Andruet, 1986 (replies)
ruzon: I don't see mate in 8 after 34.Qf6, but I found this: 34. Qf6 Qe7 35. Rh8+ Kd7 36. Qxe7+ Kxe7 37. Rxa8 Nc7 38. Ra7 Kd8 39. Rxc7 Kxc7 40. Kf3 Kd7 41. Kf4 Ke6 42. Kg5 b5 43. b3 a4 44. b4 Ke7 45. Kxf5 +-
   Nov-07-17 E Sosnowska vs A Brustman, 1987 (replies)
ruzon: Even if White gets to take his last mistake back, the best he can do is 26.Rg1 Rxg1+ 27.Kxg1 Qf2+ 28.Kh1 Qf1#.
   Sep-27-17 N Simon vs G Merenyi, 1997 (replies)
ruzon: How about 29...Kg6 30. Qd3+ Kh6 31. Rh4+ gxh4 32. Qe3+ Kg7 33. Rg5+ Kf7 34. Qf4+ Ke7 35. Re5+ Kd6 36. Rh5+ Ke6 37. Qe5+ Kf7 38. Rxh7+ Kf8 39. Qf6+ Ke8 40. Qh8# There may be something shorter.
   Sep-13-17 A Kazarian vs E Limanovska, 2017 (replies)
ruzon: <Walter Glattke: White also wins with 32.Rh3 Rg7...> 32.Rh3 Nf8. I only saw that 32.Qxh7+ Kxh7 33.Rh3+ Kg6 34.R2f3? Qxf5! 35.exf5+ Kg7 and Black escapes with a Knight for a pawn. No points for me.

ruzon: I too play the closed Sicilian, and I think White went wrong with 19. b4?. White's plan should be to close up the Queenside, not open it up and move his pieces over there away from his exposed King.
   Apr-04-17 M Orfali vs M Senlle Caride, 2007 (replies)
ruzon: <ChessHigherCat: I think it's Bg4 threatening both Re2# and QxQ.> 23...Bg4 24. Re2 Qxh2 25. Nxh2.
   Mar-15-17 M Velcheva vs H Puuska, 2007 (replies)
ruzon: <ruzon: Like <zooter> and <DarthStapler>, I too failed to see that the pawn blocks the Black Queen's otherwise saving move to b4, so I went with 27.♗e6? which fails because Black can just slide the rook out of the way.> Eight years later, I saw where the pawn ...
