I live in the Vancouver area of British Columbia in Canada. Chess is one of those activities that I could spent a great deal of time on. Unfortunately other things in life almost always take up more time (at least for now).

   Jun-27-21 Colle vs Euwe, 1928 (replies)
Kasputin: the additional moves 32 Rc6 33 Qb4 Rcf6 34 Qd4 Rd6 35 Qe5 Qxe5 draw are given in Adam Harvey's book "Colle Plays the Colle System"
   Apr-11-14 Taimanov vs G Goldberg, 1947
Kasputin: Surprised no one has commented on this game yet. 41. c7 definitely a candidate for a daily puzzle.
   Aug-30-13 Kramnik vs D Andreikin, 2013 (replies)
Kasputin: a) mate with the 2 rooks or b) give up the Q for the rooks with an easy K + P endgame. Either way Vlad will win.
   Jun-30-13 P J Morris vs C Ward, 1983 (replies)
Kasputin: I wonder if Philip Morris lost because he went out for too many smoke breaks?
   Apr-01-13 Ivanchuk vs Kramnik, 2013 (replies)
Kasputin: b6 cannot be taken cause then the white bishop is huge with pins and forks all over the place - not taking b6 isn't much good either - black is in a bad way
   Mar-29-13 Carlsen vs Ivanchuk, 2013 (replies)
Kasputin: 71. c6 - why did he not play it??
   Mar-17-13 Gelfand vs Carlsen, 2013 (replies)
Kasputin: Maybe <wannabe> took a wrong turn at Albuquerque
   Dec-23-12 Von Scheve vs Teichmann, 1907 (replies)
Kasputin: <njchess> actually I can forgive Chernev for missing 17. Bxf7+ but <gorney38>'s point about getting the whole 8...Nxa5 variation wrong is a worse failure in my estimation. Like others I'm not trying to knock Chernev - well not too much anyway. There are good reasons why
   Jun-14-12 Tal vs Y Rantanen, 1979 (replies)
Kasputin: Hi <kasputine> - soon I'll introduce you to kaspoutine - he's a chess player from Quebec :-)
   Sep-06-10 L A Tan vs Mecking, 1976 (replies)
Kasputin: The reverse of most puzzles. Probably easier to spot this in a real game situation versus here as a Monday puzzle. Still it wasn't all that difficult.
