I live in Canada. I can beat most of my friends at chess, but I'm far from being a grandmaster. Um, favourite player? Hard to say, but I think Garry Kasparov is cool because the Russian government hates him.

JimmyVermeer: Wow, he played and won a game 30 years before he was even born. I'm impressed!
   Apr-24-15 Queen's Gambit Declined, Orthodox Defense, Classical (D68) (replies)
JimmyVermeer: These moves should be added to the move list for this ECO code: 9 Bxc4 Nd5 10 Bxe7 Qxe7 11 0-0 Nxc3 12 Rxc3 e5
   Apr-24-15 Queen's Gambit Declined, Orthodox, Rubinstein Attack (D62)
JimmyVermeer: Yeah, I noticed that too. The graphic is wrong.
   Jan-30-15 McDonnell vs J Finch, 1830 (replies)
JimmyVermeer: The FEN is invalid. It says White could castle with the queen's rook but there is no queen's rook.
   Sep-05-14 Bogoljubov vs Botvinnik, 1936 (replies)
JimmyVermeer: After the final move, the mating combination is as follows: 26 Qd1 e3 27 Qe2 Bxe1 28 Qxe3 Rd1 29 Qg5+ Kh8 30 Rxh7+ Kxh7 31 Qh5+ Kg8 32 Qg6+ Kf8 33 Qh6+ Qg7 34 Qxg7+ Kxg7 35 Kf1 Bf3 36 gxf3 gxf3 37 Nc7 Bd2#
   Sep-03-14 City of Cambridge (replies)
JimmyVermeer: There's also a Cambridge in my country (Canada). It's actually adjacent to my home town of Hamilton. The first syllable rhymes with shame.
   Sep-01-14 Lasker vs Bogoljubov, 1936
JimmyVermeer: After the final move, the mating sequence is as follows: 40 ... Qe8 41 Qa7 Qa8 42 Qe3+ g5 43 hxg5+ Kg6 44 Rd7 Qxg2+ 45 Kxg2 h5 46 gxh6ep b4 47 h7 a3 48 hxg8Q#
   Oct-20-13 G Kuzmin vs Sveshnikov, 1973 (replies)
JimmyVermeer: Laszlo Polgar's book "Chess: 5334 Problems, Combinations, and Games" includes this game but Black's 5th and 6th moves are transposed, as are both players' 13th and 14th moves.
   Oct-20-13 Hector vs Plachetka, 1989 (replies)
JimmyVermeer: Plachetka may have delayed his demise by playing 22 ...Kh8 23 Rg4 f6 24 Qh5 Rf7 25 Rh4 Be3 26 Bg6+ Bh6 27 Bxh6 Kg8 28 Bxg7 Qg1+ 29 Kxg1 Kxg7 30 Qh7+ Kf8 31 Qxf7#
   Jan-07-12 R Brien vs W Hodges, 1851
JimmyVermeer: The tournament book gives Brien's 22nd move as Rc1, which is ambiguous. Are we certain it was Rac1 and not Rfc1? The book also says Brien resigned on the 26th move.
