I'm a Charlotte, NC chess player with an OTB rating just over 2000. I learned a lot from, so sometimes I'll take time to contribute lines when I kibitz on games.

If you're an aspiring chess player, this is a good site to be at! Biggest advice is to looks at games at different speeds to keep it fresh and fun--analyze games slowly sometimes, othertimes just run through them quickly and enjoy the sport!

zealouspawn: Good pun, but it’s a crime we didn’t have a Valentine’s Day theme. How about the recent awesome game from the Cairn’s cup leader? V Gunina vs M Sebag, 2019 I’m no genius pun-maker, but any should work “Be my Valentina” “Happy Valentina”

zealouspawn: I want to thank Akinov for putting up the autobiography... I know it has been a little while since he passed now but for those of us in NC who knew him or have played against him I just want to add a little anecdote. I played Ron only two or three times and certainly didn't know

zealouspawn: What a fantastic illustration of Alekhine's gun
   Jan-10-13 T Hillarp Persson vs T Thomsen, 1997 (replies)
zealouspawn: Seems like everyone is following up the line 18 Rxh7 Kxh7 19 Ng5+ Kh6 but I found 20 Nxe6 rather than 20 Rh1+ Upon 20 Nxe6 (a "quiet" move), Rh1 mate is threatened. 20.. Kh5 21. Qe2+ Kh4 (or Kh6) 22. Rh1# 20.. Kh7 21. Rh1+ Kg8 22. Qxg6#

zealouspawn: It's interesting that the very pairing after Hikaru blasts his team on twitter (aimed primarily at Onischuk), Naka's team caries him to victory despite his loss on the top board. Of course, this match didn't really matter and the previous one did for metal placement.
   Sep-08-12 Ding Liren vs Onischuk, 2012 (replies)
zealouspawn: I was watching the video.. and he did indeed look bored and uninterested in calculation. If that was ACTUALLY the case, that would be the only thing that justifies Naka's tweet. Of course, how a GM "looks" while they are at the board can be deceiving. Before passing judgement, ...

zealouspawn: With this win and Nakamura's win over Kramnik, the Americans hand team Russia their first loss in the Olympiads! Go USA!
   Aug-27-12 C Bauer vs A Istratescu, 2012 (replies)
zealouspawn: rapid, I'm no "expert" either (i guess by USCF unofficial title I am, but I'm no more an expert of chess than a 2200 player is a master of chess). however, look at the position after just black's 16th move. The pieces all seem great to me (except for maybe the f6 knight). I ...
   Aug-27-12 P Nguyen vs H Tikkanen, 2011 (replies)
zealouspawn: Abdel Irada AND Tiggler: Yes, I just saw both of your lines :) my line still wins but not nearly as quickly as yours--that's one of the things about we chess players--we find a win that best fits our style first, and then most of the time we stop looking there. This is both a
   Aug-27-12 C Bauer vs Vachier-Lagrave, 2012
zealouspawn: 29 f5 is a move a lot of players wouldn't even consider! Its a nice reminder to pay attention to tactics even in positions that seem relatively tame (Here we see a pin on one pawn and a removing-the-defender tactic on the other). As Nimzovich said, "The defensive power of a ...
