Hi, I'm a "Murkan sizzan" residing in Costa Rica, home of the unforgettable GM???....well, we made it to the soccer World Cup a few years ago anyway... I don't have the nerves, patience, time or sitzfleisch to play in tournaments, but I really love the game and find it a wonderful diversion from that other great vice: work!

   May-06-23 Kovalenko vs Keymer, 2019 (replies)
ChessHigherCat: Did anyone else find this a lot more entertaining than any of the Ding-Nepo "bored games"? Kovalenko plays like Tal (when he was still alive). He's a real demon with black judging by his profile page.
   May-03-23 E Moradiabadi vs I Johannesson, 2008 (replies)
ChessHigherCat: I almost gave up and decided to give up and look at the game but as soon as the big board was displayed Bxh7 Nxh7 Qg6 and its multiple threats jumped out at me. Then I thought, merde, black can play Kh8 instead of taking the bishop and the knight still covers g6. In that ...
   Apr-23-23 F Zita vs Bronstein, 1946 (replies)
ChessHigherCat: I looked at Nxf2 first but figured out it was best to eliminate the B first with RxBa1. Not only did I not anticipate 19. Re3, but even now I still don't really understand it.
   Mar-24-23 A Becker vs E Glass, 1928 (replies)
ChessHigherCat: I went for Nxa7 right away because there are so many mates that involve forcing the king to take a knight. It also puts huge pressure on b6 with the threat of Qc6+ followed by Ra1+ and rook mates in the corner, but it was a bit tricker than I anticipated. I played through ...
   Mar-21-23 J Hector vs R Bator, 1996 (replies)
ChessHigherCat: Sorry, I just have to ask: is Bator a Master?
   Jul-26-22 A Liang vs V Artemiev, 2021 (replies)
ChessHigherCat: <Cassandro: Here is a better definition <Political correctness (PC) refers to language that avoids offending persons of various genders, races, sexual orientations, cultures, or social conditions.> It is an improvement over <CHC>'s attempt, because it is more ...
   Jul-26-22 Tal vs Smyslov, 1977
ChessHigherCat: <Zugzwangovich> Yeah, I didn't see why not 13, Bc5+. then I saw it was Tal so I ran the fish and it gave its divine sanction. The only justification for 14. Be3 that I can think of would be accelerated development to get the rook out, but it doesn't seem worth it here ...
   Jul-26-22 Forintos vs L Prelovszky, 1967 (replies)
ChessHigherCat: Stepped on by Forintos. ("foreign toes" ffs)
   Jul-25-22 B Rabar vs E Paoli, 1953
ChessHigherCat: <Teyss> <ChessHigherCat>: Does "moral victories don't count" mean that only immoral victories count?> There are a few mathematicians on this site who will tell you "A => Not B" does not imply "Not A => B".> Yes, and I would tell them "No shyte ...
   Jul-25-22 P Boersma vs P Mack, 1975 (replies)
ChessHigherCat: I vaguely remember an IM telling me that 7. Bg5 is the only good move here. Is that still gospel?
