no reason for the change. i just felt like it.

my best-ever game is still at that link. i think it's way better than a lot of the vanity garbage that some people have uploaded. yes, i get cranky about this.

Ivan Karamazov: <chrisowen: I badly went wrong here with pf3> chris, are you feeling okay? I can't make any sense out of what you wrote today.

Ivan Karamazov: Black's combination is not as impressive as it seems. According to Stockfish, yes, Black does maintain a winning advantage, but Black's 32...e5 is inaccurate, since, as <al wazir> observes, White can give serious resistance by 33.Nb4 instead of the strange blunder ...

Ivan Karamazov: So once again the solution to an "Easy" puzzle is "1... (Black checks)!; 2.(White makes a horrible blunder) (Black mates)!! This is not amusing. <cg>, please, PLEASE, stop doing that.

Ivan Karamazov: Let's see now: after 26...Nd5 27.exd4 e4, let's suppose White tries 28.Ne4. Not surprisingly 6secSF likes 28...Qxe4 (-15.33), then if 29.Ke1 [DIAGRAM] SF says 29...Rf3(-16.81). Can someone explain that move to me? Now on 30.Qd2 [DIAGRAM] SF says 30...Rg3. Huhhh?? Where did ...

Ivan Karamazov: <stockfish: 55...Kh8 56.Qf6+ Kh7 57.g6+ Kh6 58.g7+ Qxf6 59.gxf8=Q+ +- mate-in-19> sometimes stockfish's annotations are just bizarre. here 58.Qxh4+ is stronger, simpler, and faster.

Ivan Karamazov: <"neither before, nor after, one can find something similar to the maneuver Qd7-Qd8-Qb8-Qa7-Qc5-Qb4"> Questionable, viz.: J Mieses vs J Mason, 1901 including Qc3-d1-h1-h2-d6 (followed soon by Qxc5xa7). However, Rubinstein's execution seems to have been more accurate. As
