   Dec-24-03 P Needham vs S Polgar, 1981 (replies)
Alchemist: 22. Qf3 hangs the queen to 22...Bg4!
   Dec-21-03 J Schulten vs Kieseritzky, 1850 (replies)
Alchemist: Excellent puzzle. Those who stopped calculating after they saw the queen king-queen fork must have deprived themselves of this pretty combination. Most of us ( I know I ) saw the g6+ Bf8#, probably amatuer visualization is just a lot more comfortable with this line. But Bg4# is ...
   Dec-16-03 Sicilian, Dragon, Yugoslav Attack, 10.castle long (B78) (replies)
Alchemist: I doubt that Fischer had such little respect for the dragon, the fianchettoed variations are the sharpest and most aggressive systems of the sicilian.
   Dec-16-03 G Minchev vs O Santana, 1987 (replies)
Alchemist: It doesn't seem very logical to spend 3 moves developing a piece only to have it exchanged for a peice developed in one.

Alchemist: The best internet chess service is in my opinion US Chess Live, the official chess server of the USCF. It has a great software interface that allows you to review and analyze your games, plus tournaments and training features. If you are a USCF member you get a free membership, ...
   Dec-13-03 Shabalov vs L Basin, 1989 (replies)
Alchemist: Rxd5! is a great sacrifice that utilizes the true potential of black's queenside minority in the sicilian. There are some amazing variations that arise from it, among the most interesting i found was that if 23... Bxd5 instead of 23... a3, then 24. cxd4 a3 and Fritz 8 gives Rh2 as
   Dec-11-03 Sicilian, Accelerated Fianchetto (B34) (replies)
Alchemist: There are some tactical tricks for black in the Yugoslav, and some great sacrifices against the queenside castle by opening up the dragon bishop at a critical moment, some pretty solid rook sacrifices for black built into the theory. It's really all going to come down to who is ...
   Dec-11-03 A Slimani vs R Aoudia, 2000 (replies)
Alchemist: Excellent tactical adaptation of the common smothered mate pattern, employing the discovered check to win the queen. It is interesting here also how black makes use of the f1-a6 diagonal to prevent Kf1 (Kf1 Ba6+ Rd2 Qf2#)
   Dec-11-03 J Garcia Elio vs G Szamoskozi, 2001 (replies)
Alchemist: Move order can be fatal.
   Dec-08-03 Serafino Dubois (replies)
Alchemist: How is it exactly that this man's play spans 133 years? I think that the games from 1973+ may not be genuine.
