Chess, like "The Simpsons," is a passion of mine. Boo-yah.

   Mar-31-10 J S Morgado vs J C Torres, 1967 (replies)
Calculoso: <Perhaps Black needed to use his rooks more.> I lol'ed Tough to figure out what black is trying to accomplish here...
   Feb-22-10 Breyer vs J Esser, 1917 (replies)
Calculoso: A very entertaining game to watch!
   Jan-18-10 H H Cole vs A W W Tulip, 1946 (replies)
Calculoso: Nice and forcing line here - with almost all of blacks forces queenside and white's passed pawn on the g file, black is in some deep trouble.
   Dec-30-09 I Nataf vs Y Wang, 2004 (replies)
Calculoso: No points for not following through up to 41. Qf8+ I guess as its actually the rook on the e-file that white secures in the line. I still went with h6 and probably would've seen the continuation (including Qf8) OTB
   Dec-25-09 Szen vs La Bourdonnais, 1836 (replies)
Calculoso: I'd opt for Nf3 followed by Ng5 either picking up the black e-pawn or queening on f8 - a bit more sure-fire for me :D
   Nov-30-09 G Neumann vs Steinitz, 1870 (replies)
Calculoso: Can't white promote one of his pawns earlier with 106. Kd6 instead of worrying about the g-pawns? I haven't used a computer but seems as though the rook can't stop both with the king around.
   Sep-22-09 Illescas Cordoba vs Adams, 1992 (replies)
Calculoso: <I wonder if <16... f6> would have been better?> I think 17. Nxd6 wins two pawns then since Bxd6 is met with Qxe6+ followed by Qxd6.
   Nov-21-06 D Andric vs L Santolini, 1981 (replies)
Calculoso: What about 27. Rdd7 for a candidate move? Of course it is not as good as the text but it is the line I found. After any black move Re7+ followed by Rxe7#.
   Nov-15-06 M Konopka vs J Michalek, 2001 (replies)
Calculoso: <Chris1Clark> 25. ... Qd7 fails immediately to Nxf6+ at which point the rook is no longer the knight's focal point - the knight can now take the queen!
   Nov-14-06 W Schmidt vs J Augustin, 1976 (replies)
Calculoso: I got this puzzle but more importantly I think it is one that I would recognize OTB - the ultimate goal of my puzzle study. A pretty little combination at any rate.
