   Mar-28-06 W Potter vs NN, 1870 (replies)
sirduke: "Look, bub: we serve hard drinks for men who like to get drunk quick and we don't need any clowns comin' 'round to give the place atmosphere. Got it? Or do I have to slip you my left for a convincer?"
   Mar-24-06 Johnny Owens vs F Harms, 1998 (replies)
sirduke: A mistaken resignation. 10...Bd7 11.Bf4 dxe5 12.dxe5 0-0-0 13.0-0-0 and what does white have but a pawn for the piece?
   Feb-27-06 French, Tarrasch (C05) (replies)
sirduke: <ArturoRivera> and <Resignation Trap>, in your line how about 8...cxd4 9.cxd4 Bb4+ 10.Bd2? Why move the King? If BxB, then QxB and the b2 is covered. Is there some reason for not playing this line?
   Feb-09-06 Morphy vs F Perrin, 1857 (replies)
sirduke: 19.Bxf5 may have been a mistake. After 19.Bxf5 black's King finds a safe home on c7, with 19...gxf5 20.Qh5+ Kd7 21.Qxf5 Kc7 =. Better was bringing the Nd2 to g5 via f3 and exchanging on e6. In this way white secures the two bishops vs. N and B in an open position. I'm sure Morphy ...
   Feb-09-06 Sicilian, 2.f4 and 2.d4 (B21) (replies)
sirduke: I play the 2...d5 line exclusively against the f4 attack and have done quite well with it. Here is an example from a game of mine: 1.e4 c5 2.f4 d5 3.exd5 Nf6 4.c4 (to support the d5 pawn? I don't know why so many people play this. Better was Bb5+) e6 5.dxe6 Bxe6 6.Nf3 Nc6 7.Be2 Be7 ...

sirduke: 3.Qd2 h4 4.h3 Kc7 5.Rb1 a5 6.Qd1 Qxd1 7.Rfxd1 b5 looks quite drawish. Any breakthrough would create weaknesses for both sides. I would hesitate to undertake too much unless you must have a full point.
   Feb-01-06 Philidor Defense (C41) (replies)
sirduke: By the way, that is a Ruy Lopez-Old Steinitz Defense. All the references I've read give white a clear advantage here. If the Spanish Game is your main weapon, this must be for you.
   Jan-23-06 King's Indian Attack (A07) (replies)
sirduke: Thank you all. <Cecil Brown>, your comments are greatly appreciated and precisely what I was getting at. I'll take a closer look at those lines tonight.
   Dec-20-05 V Green vs Steinitz, 1863 (replies)
sirduke: I'll say two things for wannabe. First, be careful of compromising your king safety by allowing such demolitions or advancing protecting pawns, wrecking your castled position. Take this game, for example, with the pawn recapture on f3. Another common one is where you play h3 to kick
   Jun-24-05 M Jelica vs M Medic, 2001
sirduke: The continuation: 21...d:e4 22 Qd7 and to avoid mate on g7 black must give up the two rooks with 22...R:e6 23 Q:e6+ Kf8 24 Q:c8+ Kf7 or the queen (strongest) with 22...Qa7 23 Q:a7 R:e6. Either way, white wins.
