fredthebear: Who knows when the remaining AI Cup games will be posted. My guess is Tuesday. * August isn't September: * Keep a poker face: * Queen Sacrifice: * Snoozy: ...

fredthebear: Trump was the Art of the Deal. Evander Holyfield was the Real Deal. They said the fight should not be allowed to take place -- Mike Tyson would kill EH. All Mike did was bite his ear, but he made good money. One of the great upsets of all time.
   Sep-30-23 V Frias Pablaza vs R J McMichael, 1994 (replies)
fredthebear: Thank goodness the webmaster does not evaluate games for us. We can decide for ourselves. What's more, nobody would begin to have the time to do that -- a never-ending volume of games. Chess never stops. We're still waiting for Friday's games from the Champions Chess Tour AI Cup

fredthebear: "These are the times that try men's souls." The utter crap (liberal bias) spewed on these pages day after day is unreal. Unreal. It's Paine-fully obvious that y'all have not studied the writings of our Founding Fathers (or Heavenly Father for that matter), not a bit. Have you ...
   Sep-30-23 Hort vs K Schulz, 1992
fredthebear: Don't check with the knight first! (Well, you should LOOK at all possible checks as a matter of thoroughness of habit, but don't play it.) White has a devastating capture-with-check, a decoy sacrifice on f8 (else the rook captures queen next), then knight check-to-capture Qf8, ...

fredthebear: Remembering JS:
   Sep-29-23 Morphy vs J McConnell, 1849
fredthebear: Not Steinitz, Lasker, or Pillsbury?
   Sep-29-23 T Thorhallsson vs G Kjartansson, 2011
fredthebear: Black is lost after 31.RxRe4 The alternative response 31...NxRe4 is also best met by 32.Rg3+. If 32...NxRg3 then White has a Damiano's Bishop Mate coming off the h-file after 33.Bh7+ Kh8 34.Bg6+ discovery Kg8 35.Qh7+ Kf8 36.Qxf7# 1-0. See diagram of final position: [DIAGRAM] ...
   Sep-27-23 C Abravanel vs P Fievet, 1990
fredthebear: 36...? There's a lateral pin of the f2-pawn. This position is happy hunting grounds for Black. I had the much easier 36...Qxg3+ 37.Kh1 Qxh3+ 38.Kg1 Nf3# 0-1. If acceptance 37.fxQg3, then it's a Blind Swine Mate along the second rank by the rook pair. Had White played 36.Kh2 ...

fredthebear: Sounds like a serial killer.
