Just a regular player with some strong deep conceptions and unbeliavably stupid unforgivable mistakes. My ratings? over 1600 on yahoo chess, and over 1800 on fics (15 minute rapid). And over 2300 on 1 minute lightning chess

Greetings from Argentina. Check "The most shocking games" on game collections for a list of the games i love the most!

   Funicular has kibitzed 196 times to chessgames   [less...]
   Jan-04-17 L Engels vs K Richter, 1935 (replies)
Funicular: how come noone ever kibitzed about this game? truly amazing stuff. the "real" queen sac takes place in move 18, where engels probably saw himself passively defending for the rest of the game after, say, 18. Kh1 fxe4, therefore choosing to go down a bold queen sac line with ...
   Jun-03-15 Nakamura vs Carlsen, 2014 (replies)
Funicular: If black's in zugzwang, why Qh6 and force a queen exchange? If your opponent can't do anything, why give him something to do? lol But yeah, most of us would just be so anxious and excited about defeating carlsen for the first time in our lives, we'd probably play Qh6 right away. ...
   May-02-15 R Makhmutov vs A Predke, 2015 (replies)
Funicular: I wonder what's wrong with 16. Rxb5. I haven't engine checked it, but seems solid enough to go for the pawn. I can't see any queen traps.
   Aug-19-14 Capablanca vs B H Villegas, 1914 (replies)
Funicular: @Francio Actually it's originally from the musical piece of Evita. Serú Girán then released a live album with that title, including the same name for the first song. But it was years after ALW's musical. Rd6 loses on the spot. The question is, could black've done any better to ...
   Jun-11-13 L Espig vs W Pietzsch, 1967 (replies)
Funicular: @boster Well, yes, but in this case there's littler choice. Winning material means nothing once you've sacrificed a whole rook while STILL under mate threat. You really can't risk letting the black king escape. That leads most chess players to look for the most forcing moves.
   Dec-06-12 E Maggiolo vs C Zhu, 2001 (replies)
Funicular: Something's wrong in this game
   Sep-22-12 A Valsecchi vs P Bontempi, 2012 (replies)
Funicular: Once you've seen ed lasker vs g thomas, you can spot these kind of combinations rather quickly!
   Sep-09-12 G Vescovi vs R Leitao, 1998 (replies)
Funicular: Like most of you, i saw clearly through 32. Rfe8. It makes sense, since a check would win the queen. After that, it's about thinking how the bishop can kick in anc combine the rooks for an advantage. By the way, if Qxf3, then Bb6 and then R8e3 or something. Note how the queen is ...
   Aug-17-12 Tal vs Panno, 1958 (replies)
Funicular: 41 ... Re6 and white simply can't win
