  suenteus po 147: Thank you all for the birthday wishes. I appreciate it very much!

<tpstar> Still working on that win against master-level competition. I dare say I will have my PhD before I beat a 2200+ opponent!

  Benzol: Peter your Game Collection: Berlin 1881 has become the first historic tournament to be released. It would be great if you put in an appearance to see it.


Nov-02-12  ughaibu: Will we be able to kibitz on tournament pages?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Phony Benoni: <ughaibu> Yes, you can. They will work in the same way as pages for current tournaments, except that there will be no Chess Bookie action.

This is the link to the tournament page.

Berlin (1881)

Nov-02-12  ughaibu: Great, thanks.

  kingscrusher: Your game collections are truly amazing - and you have some very relevant Hastings ones which i think their new website should have.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Benzol: <kingscrusher> Peter hasn't been active here for a wee while. I'm hoping he comes back soon.

  keypusher: peter, why is your forum going dark?
Premium Chessgames Member
  suenteus po 147: <keypusher> Because I'm a cheapskate and am not yet willing to shell out the extremely affordable $29 to renew my premium membership for a year. I intend to to start paying for membership regularly next year once I've finished paying off my mortgage.
Aug-11-15  Bubele: Hi Peter ! Can I ask you a question ? The book "Anatoly Karpov: The Road to the World Chess Championship" bt Robert Byrn is in the old descriptive or in the modern algebraic notation ? Thank you very much ! :)
Aug-11-15  Retireborn: <Bubele> I used to own that book, a neat little paperback from Bantam (?) as I recall.

It was in descriptive notation.

  WannaBe: You broke 2900 ELO??
Premium Chessgames Member
  suenteus po 147: <WannaBe> Yes, this whole time I, Magnus Carlsen, have been living out a secret life as a plebeian internet user on a premiere chess database.

Seriously, I hardly think that "contributes frequently to <chessgames>" or "his game collections are legendary" fit appropriately by this point.

Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: Well, even if the contribution level have gone down a bit, I hope everything else is good. =))

We missed having you around.

Premium Chessgames Member
  suenteus po 147: <WannaBe: We missed having you around.> That means a lot to me! I miss the whole gang. My life has been in a downward spiral the last four years post-defense, and I'm only just now getting to a place where I feel like maybe I'm turning things around. I think I might have said that last year too, but this time I mean it! Anyway, I'll try to be present but unobtrusive if I can.
Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: You still have my email addr at yahoo, yes? Kstc_jyu if you need anything.
Premium Chessgames Member
  suenteus po 147: <WannaBe> Thank you, friend. I think I did still have your address, but it's good to have back-ups :)

I hope you've been well. I see you're almost to 35K posts here. Frankly, I thought you'd be further along by now... :)

  suenteus po 147: Last year I started a new account on QueenAlice and played 9 games, all of which I won. I was pretty proud of myself because although I encountered a variety of opponents at different levels of strength, I felt equally in control and capable in every game. I had that moment Fischer talked about of "suddenly getting good," and it was a little scary. I started six more games after those 9 completed, but I chickened out and resigned those 6 after about 5-6 moves each. I haven't played since. However, a couple of people ask why I haven't posted any wins. I suppose I never felt proud of my wins, but in those 9 games were about 4 or 5 I was proud of, so in the next couple of weeks I'll post them with my thoughts and couple of interesting positions if there are any to cite. Here's the first:

Site: QueenAlice
Date(s): 2015.02.04-2015.02.24
White: suenteus_po_147 (unrated)
Black: Artking (1539)
Opening: B28 Sicilian, O'Kelly Variation

1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 a6 3.c4 Nc6 4.Nc3 e6 5.Be2 Nf6 6.O-O Bd6 7.d4 cxd4 8.Nxd4 Ne5 9.Kh1 h5 10.Bg5 Neg4 11.h4 Qc7 12.Ndb5 axb5 13.Nxb5 Qb6 14.Nxd6+ Kf8 15.Bxg4 Nxg4 16.Qd2 f6 17.Be3 Nxe3 18.fxe3 Ke7 19.Rfd1 Qc6 20.b4 b6 21.Rac1 Bb7 22.b5 Qc7 23.Qb4 Bd5 24.Nf5+ Kf7 25.Qe7+ 1-0

My opponent was eager to play an anti-Sicilian, and I was fine with it since I don't know theory. I went for a Maroczy-Bind style setup (that's 3.c4, right?) because I had had some luck with that move/position in earlier games and I believe in luck/intuition, at least in chess play. He varied from known play (at least in the database) with 6...Bd6:

This looked like a mistake to me, so I immediately attacked the center with 7.d4 in the hopes to catch the king's bishop undefended in a fork or something. After 8...Ne5 I felt like I had made a mistake. I suddenly had flashbacks of games I had played where my opponent threw all his pieces at my castled king and mated me. So I took the precaution of 9.Kh1 to avoid a knight check on f3 and a bishop check/capture on h2. 9...h5 was expected as a way to continue assaulting my king's position, but something occurred to me while I studied the position: my opponent hadn't castled and wouldn't be so his rook on h8 could continue to support his h-pawn's assault on my king. I knew then I had to counterattack and make myself as much of a nuisance as I could. That brought us to this position:

After 11...Qc7

I suddenly saw the opportunity to attack and make use of my earlier plans against the king's bishop at d6 with the sham sac of 12.Ndb5! Of course it's not a real sacrifice since I get the piece back with a pawn. It's dangerous too, because after the queen moves to b6 and the king escapes the knight check there are a lot of threats to still address. But after 16.Qd2 f6 17.Be3 Nxe3 18.fxe3 I felt very comfortable and in control. The uncastled king was my sole target and I brought everything to bear against him. I didn't realize how good my position was until his desperate 23...Bd5 to try and capture my knight, but by then it's far too late.

Two things I displayed in this game that I rarely had in play before: a plan and aggression. It was surprising how effective both turned out to be.

Apr-12-17  Molotok: <suenteus po 147> Hello, I was browsing through your USSR championship game collections and noticed that the Kholmov-Borisenko game from 1954 still isnĀ“t corrected. It is in fact the Lisitsin-Sokolsky game and the correct Kholmov-Borisenko game is in the comments there by the user Chessdreamer. I have the scanlation of the original game collection from this championship in Russian so I can confirm that.

And it seems you miss a game of round two (Flohr - Suetin) which ended in draw after 18 moves. Good work putting in the effort for these collections though, cheers.
