Member since Oct-14-04 · Last seen Feb-07-06
I'm just a humble Class B player from Pennsylvania who happens to share the birthday of the great Alexander Alekhine. My favorite active player is Vishy Anand, and my favorite players ever include Tarrasch, Petrosian, Capablanca, Alekhine, and the eccentric Bobby Fischer.

   May-20-05 Vyzmanavin vs V S Zhidkov, 1985 (replies)
 
zugzwangdragon: I thought Bf5 was an instant killer, but Black did have many defensive resources. Hoo hoo hoo, so exciting.
 
   Nov-06-04 B Mate vs G Horvath, 2001 (replies)
 
zugzwangdragon: Way to smash the Exchange Variation wimp!
 
   Nov-05-04 Csom vs L Seres, 1999 (replies)
 
zugzwangdragon: Csom was a versatile player, for sure. He can attack like this, and he has held up to Karpov positionally (not an easy task). I think after 30. h5, Black was busted. Note that Black cannot win a pawn and create a passer by 30. ...exd4 31. hxg6 Qxc5?? because White has a ...
 
   Nov-05-04 M Hancas vs E G Reicher, 1987 (replies)
 
zugzwangdragon: White was doing somewhat okay until 7. b4??. Unfortunately, White obviously was basing his play around this self-destructive move. He must have intended to dislodge the c6 knight and have a spiffy attack, but Black happily obliges with 7. ...Nxd4!. White's in trouble at this ...
 
   Nov-01-04 A Dueckstein vs Euwe, 1958 (replies)
 
zugzwangdragon: This is an example of how deadly the white side of the poisoned pawn Najdorf can be if White is a good attacker. This variation is played frequently at low levels with a different result because White cannot utilize his fearsome advantage.
 
   Nov-01-04 Mayet vs Harrwitz, 1848 (replies)
 
zugzwangdragon: I'm surprised this isn't a Bill Wall game.
 
   Oct-15-04 Kupreichik vs Korchnoi, 1970 (replies)
 
zugzwangdragon: Wow...I've seen a lot of French Advances in my day, but this is incredibly unorthodox. Black seemed to waste too much time in the opening. Korchnoi's opening moves all had a plan behind them, but they seem uncoordinated. Regardless of the opening, however, I think 13. ...
 
   Oct-15-04 L Vizantiadis vs Pachman, 1967 (replies)
 
zugzwangdragon: 23. ♕xf2 would have held on longer, but White would still be cooked by Black's attack.
 
   Oct-14-04 Alekhine vs C de Montmartre, 1925 (replies)
 
zugzwangdragon: It's very possible that Alekhine was under heavy influence of mind-altering drugs during this game.

zugzwangdragon: I'm very grateful to this fellow for writing the book "Play the Classical Dutch." I've been pitying my 1. d4, 1. c4, and 1. ♘f3-playing opponents since.
