I am certainly not a "woodpusher" nor am I a "coffee house player". Taught the game when I was five and never truly pursued the potential. I have a great fear of losing, which is exceedingly determental to learning, as well as actually winning. I am convinced this is one of the best chess sites around, and am grateful to the "regulars" comments and analysis of the games... so everyone keep up the great work for cowards like me.

Longbrow: <al wazir> I believe you are correct on "where's the win?" with 27...Rgc3. I also played many variations of 27...Rc8-c3 in the same line and found Black with the advantage, often keeping the bishop pair.
   Mar-17-09 E Walther vs Tal, 1966 (replies)
Longbrow: White castles Queenside, Black immediately puts a horrible relentless building pressure on the White King side. White never has the ability to execute his potential for a Backrow Mate. Ironically, under the pressure White attempts to trade Queens twice and is refused, eventually ...
   Mar-14-09 X Zhao vs Shen Yang, 2009 (replies)
Longbrow: <UnsoundHero: Black has no reasonable way to develop his kingside, and is strategically lost.> I am inclined to agree. I recognized the significance of b5, that an attack on it should be made with the ♘ and not the ♗ and solved this puzzle only on the ...
   Sep-20-08 A David vs G Kallai, 1996 (replies)
Longbrow: I have read < patzer2> and <chrisowen>’s excellent posts below and acknowledge Chapman vs I Rogers, 1999 ,as well as, Carlsen vs Bareev, 2005 . This is the Caro-Kann Defense French variation, right? I don’t quite follow 5. g4. By 7. h4 ,white practically ...
   Sep-15-08 McDonnell vs La Bourdonnais, 1834 (replies)
Longbrow: <Boomie: All of their match games are collected here Game Collection: WCC Index [La Bourdonnais-McDonnell 1834] .> Many thanks. I had been looking for the following game from this match: Alexander McDonnell vs Louis Charles Mahe De La Bourdonnais London m4 ;MAINB 1834 • ...
   Sep-05-08 Bisguier vs Larsen, 1965 (replies)
Longbrow: Larsen beat with his own attacking style and locale. <euripides: I suppose the omission of Nc3 accelerates the kingside attack.> In this case, I would certainly say it does-good observation.
   Sep-01-08 Y Troinov vs L Popov, 1962 (replies)
Longbrow: <Vollmer> That is a key point to this puzzle. All roads lead to f7 after 12…♖e8 Also to note after 12… ♖e8 is the Black King is now sole defender for f7, g7, and h7.
   Aug-20-08 O Sarapu vs Browne, 1972 (replies)
Longbrow: <whiteshark: King standing in the corner and back rank weakness in such a way combinations annunciate. --Whi Te Shark> Dang…that thar sounds like educational chess Haiku.
   Aug-17-08 Van Wely vs Piket, 1996 (replies)
Longbrow: <MiCrooks> See < Once’s > parallel universe post below.
   Aug-16-08 J Sunye Neto vs Kasparov, 1981 (replies)
Longbrow: One word: Relentless. The eventual refutation of White's repeated attempts to find an effective home for his minor pieces. Black's insidiously strong Knight post at e4, which in seeming desperation White had to remove at all costs. An excellent display of piece activity, ...
