I am from Maryland in the USA. I consider myself an average club player with a USCF rating of roughly 1800. My favorite chess players include Keres, Spassky, Nakamura, Morozevich, and Adams. I enjoy and I applaud its creators and administrators. You all provide a great service.

   Aug-07-22 Anand vs V Kovalev, 2020 (replies)
transpose: i disagree with the logic the because it is out of fashion at the top level, it must be bad. It is sound and it has had a few years of popularity at the top level (1980s). It is still solid enough but black doesn't have as many dynamic options as in other black defenses that are ...
   Aug-22-21 Lautier vs Vaganian, 2004 (replies)
transpose: There were so many enticing candidate moves to choose from on move 17 for black. I initially thought Rf3 but eventually landed on Bh2+. I should have spent more time on my initial candidate move. Extremely tangled variation tree on this one.
   Jul-18-21 Rozentalis vs P Nikolic, 1994 (replies)
transpose: I found this puzzle rather difficult. Knowing it is a Saturday, I immediately thought of N/gxe6 or only after Rxd7. I decided that N/gxe6 was the way to go and proceeded not to consider any other candidate moves. I felt silly seeing Qh4, which of course might be what I would play ...
   May-23-21 Averbakh vs Spassky, 1956 (replies)
transpose: This game, and this move by Spassy, is why chess will always fascinating.
   May-20-21 P Girinath vs Ganguly, 2000 (replies)
transpose: Kind of obvious once I saw the answer but I honestly was looking for a more violent approach because these puzzles usually always focus on such moves. Great puzzle for this reason alone
   Apr-17-21 Khalifman vs Dreev, 1998 (replies)
transpose: In a tournament situation would I have played this? Probably so, as the first three moves appear best and otherwise black has no problems. But would I have found all the best moves as white did here? Not a chance. Impressive display by Khalifman.
   Mar-24-21 D Reinderman vs S Strating, 2009
transpose: White's 25th move would make a great puzzle. Just sayin....
   Mar-06-21 R Edouard vs Adams, 2020
transpose: I don't think 41...Rd7 holds. Black goes into a queenless endgame when the b pawn will cause white fits. only two results are possible and black can squeeze forever hoping white will make an error or end up in zugzwang
   Mar-06-21 G Flear vs Adams, 2021 (replies)
transpose: i suppose in the final position white cannot take on e4 or black plays Rf2 and white must lose his bishop and it seems tough to prevent the black rooks from both landing on the second rank and wreaking havoc
   Mar-06-21 Lautier vs Adams, 1991
transpose: I am struck by white's errant knight on h7, which allows Black to seize more space and get his pawns going in the center
