znprdx: <Knight13: ... I'd rather watch Top 2700+ GM's than those a dime a dozen GMs in World Open.> what a senseless >penny-a-million patzer< comment
   Jul-03-09 Carlsen vs Jakovenko, 2009 (replies)
znprdx: I'm curious: A classic Coffeehouse tactic:...33.Ba6 (perhaps that was the reason for Bc4 in the first place)certainly looks preferable to the text... Also I don't understand how g4 forces the creation of a passed pawn - doesn't ...f6 hold at some point?
   Jun-28-09 I Farago vs G Jacoby, 2002 (replies)
znprdx: 58.Re7+ ( which we were obliged to find - since it is a puzzle) Kf2 59.Kd3 h3 ( maybe ..f4 better?) 60.Rh7 Kg2 61.Ke2 h2 62.Rg7+ Kh3 (maybe ...Kh1 potential stalemate theme (I recently had to succumb to such a fate)63. Kf2 h1=N+ cute (forced) 64.Kf3 Kh2 65.Rg2+! the hard move to find
   Jun-06-09 Sutovsky vs E Inarkiev, 2009 (replies)
znprdx: the tactical plan begins well before the simple Qa3+ which secures e7 such that the weirdly placed King Bishop cannot block the check on the uncastled King. I think Re5 was more like one of those 'check-it-might-be-mate' themes: just the icing on the cake - almost a fluke (or as I ...
   May-31-09 Shirov vs Fressinet, 2004 (replies)
znprdx: funny posts: 1200, 1400, 16000 ratings - yup and me with my one time potential 1800 rating 16.0-0-0 was hardly a difficult challenge : It was fairly straightforward - but what in heck was with 19...Qb6 and just rolling over? ---at least ....f6 might have offered some hope. I don't ...
   May-23-09 Shirov vs Carlsen, 2009 (replies)
znprdx: Hard to believe but even if Carlsen and tried 27...Qd7 28.Nb4 (I thought Ne3 was forced)...28.Ba8 29.Nd5 may still be playable-although perhaps not clearly winning...
   May-22-09 M-Tel Masters (2009) (replies)
znprdx: <Atking: Strange that only the leader Carlsen could not win one game vs a devasted Ivanchuk.> Perhaps he was showing his respect
   May-03-09 Aronian vs Leko, 2009 (replies)
znprdx: Eyal: After 25.Ng2! in the N(4)h5 line it seems ...25.f6 holds If you see a forcing line I'm keen...I realize White can maintain pressure but winning seems far from easy....there are surely drawing resources
   May-03-09 O Gavrilov vs S Solovjov, 2005 (replies)
znprdx: Wow Qc8+ very elegant indeed Fascinating mind flip: after 34. Qf5 one tends to think the queen must maintain the pin and that the threat is Rh2 I was so pleased with myself finding 33...Qg6 so if 34.Rg1 Rxh3+ 35.K x[R] h3 Rh7+ 36.Qh4 Qf5+ 37.Rg4 Qf3+ 38.Rg3 where Black at best has ...

znprdx: I have a fond recollection of an anecdotal incident shown to us by Jules Therien after a weekend Swiss tournament outside Montreal around 1974-5,Beloeil I think it was: < [DIAGRAM] > 1. Bd4+ Kh6 ( g5 cannot be played since King is pinned) 2.Be3+ Kg7 Well it looks like perpetual
