starscream74: This game reminds me of a gem you'd find in an old Fred Reinfield book: short, easy to digest, but extremely educational. In addition to the tactical fireworks at the end of this miniature is Olafsson's refutation of Thorfinnson's opening during moves 10-17. Switching from a ...

starscream74: <crookedbrd> Black can stop White's attack with 46... Ra7. White would then be forced to move the Queen and would lose the Bishop on 47.... exBf3.

starscream74: 23 Rd1 Qxd1 24 Qxd1 Rxd1+

starscream74: A fun line not previously mentioned is if Black tries to move the Queen from harm, 24. ♘xe6 ♕e8 25. ♖h8+ ♔xh8 26. ♕h6+ ♔g8 27. ♕g7#

starscream74: If this were the game of the day it would be titled "Opening Glitck"

starscream74: <Shams>Starscream wasn't a Dinobot he was the Decepticon Jet. I really wasn't into Transformers that much, I just find the name aesthetically pleasing.

starscream74: <benveniste> I don't see how White is simply a pawn up. Did you plug that position into a computer and find the continuation? I'm at work and only have my feeble brain to analyse. To me, the position after 16...♗e6 looks very tactical and White could lose if he is ...
   Feb-15-05 E Poltoranov vs Stein, 1955 (replies)
starscream74: <euripides>I agree with your assessment that this game was lost by White because of his early attack on Black's Queen side. White's 9th and 10th moves were also questionable. Why waste two tempos removing a Knight posted in a bad location? Black is eventually going to ...
   Jan-05-05 D Cummings vs G Basanta, 1999 (replies)
starscream74: This is by far the best chess site I have found on the web. Knowing I have a challenging chess problem to start my workday sure does make it easier to turn on my computer in the morning. Keep up the great work! Does anyone know of any other websites that has a chess problem of ...
