I'm from Uppsala, Sweden.

If you prefer chess analysis that's been carefully thought through or perhaps even want it computer-assisted, you should probably ignore my posts, which are neither.

   Oct-17-13 K R Jones vs G Buckendorf, 1954 (replies)
Cyphelium: <Stonehenge> It might be playable, as black seems to have compensation or more after, say, 27. ♔b3 a5. It's a bit murky though. I wonder whether 23.- f5 might be more clear, for example 24. gxf5 exf5 25. ♘c5 ♕xc3+ 26. ♖c2 ♖xb2 or something ...

Cyphelium: <Conrad93> On 16.- -gxf4, I guess white just plays 17. ♗xa8 ♕xa8 18. ♖xd7. Then he is an exchange up and may continue with ♘c3-e4 etc. So agreed, no wild attack, but still losing for black.

Cyphelium: <nok> <I understand tolengoy bashing is the most fashionable sport though.> Where's the bashing? We're having a discussion here and I just have another opinion for which I've argued. You can keep your insinuations of me being eager to jump in to some kind of mob to ...

Cyphelium: Well, the absence of life/soul force that you so perceptively bring in to this discussion is likely the cause of the almost universal adoption of the expression "dead draw".
   Aug-08-13 V Byvshev vs Flohr, 1954 (replies)
Cyphelium: On 15. ♘e4, white can play 16. ♗xe4 dxe4 17. ♘xe4 with the threat of ♘f6+. So 17.- f5 seems forced, but then there's the cheeky 18. d7+ ♕xd7 (18.- ♗xd7 would be sweet) 19. ♘f6+ ♖xf6 20. ♕xf6. This should be winning for white I ...

Cyphelium: <joupajo> After 27. ♗xa3 ♖xa3 28. ♖c1 ♖a5, the c5 pawn will fall. Then black has two passed pawns and winning endgame.
   Aug-06-13 Meduna vs Tal, 1982 (replies)
Cyphelium: <ughaibu> I looked the game up in the Chess Stars collection of Tal's games, edited by Khalifman. Apparently, 41.- ♗xh2 leads to a draw as well after their 42. ♘b5! ♗g1 43. ♘c7 h5 44. ♘e6+ ♔f6 45. ♘c7 ♔e7!? 46. ♘d5! (46. ...

Cyphelium: <AbdelIrada> The Swedish word "Sk├Âld" means "shield". The "sk" in the beginning is pronounced similar to "sh" in "shield", whereas the "sk" in skald is pronounced as the "sc" in scold. I don't think the words are related, at least not closely. Kristian quite possibly had an

Cyphelium: <Refused> Hey! You should call her WGM and not GM, or I will call you an outright liar! <end obvious joke>
   Aug-05-13 D Howell vs P K Wells, 2013
Cyphelium: <DoctorD> You are right, 37. ♖xc7 is much simpler. If black chose to push h-pawn, white wins easily by, for example, pushing the a-pawn. This is dead lost for black.
