Lord Osiris
Member since Feb-11-05 · Last seen Jun-03-10
I'm 18, live in Alberta Canada, and I play on yahoo alot with a rating of roughly 1500-1600 on there. Favorite players would have to be the infamous Paul Morphy at and Josh Waitzkin. Favorite openings include Guioco Piano, Sicilian-Exchange, Two Knights, Queens Gambit, and Nimzovich\Larsen Attack. I like white (play that mostly) and need to get better at black

Lord Osiris: Guessed is the wrong word. Reasoned is a better one.

Lord Osiris: absolutely not mac. the idea of the a and c pawns protecting each other is that one cant be captured without the other queening. it is true that if the white king got to b5 while both of blacks pawns were on a5 and c5 then white has them both, however the idea is to not get into

Lord Osiris: Chess as far as I understood it, instead of a sport, was more of a microcosm of war; and resignation in a lost battle was utilized to spare the needless loss of life. Thus, in this light, resigning in chess shows more of the mentality of choosing to preserve the life of ones ...

Lord Osiris: PolishPentium after: 35.Qe7...Bd3+ comes: 36.Kg2...Be4+ (blacks only check) 37.Kg3...Qa3+ (again blacks only check) 38.Kh4...Qh3+ (and again the only check) 39.Kg5...Qh6+ (need I say it again?) 40.Kxg4 and black has no more checks left and mate is coming or loss of

Lord Osiris: WhiteRook48, to answer your question heres how the line would go: 36.Rf6...h5 37.Qe6...Qc2+ 38.Kg3...Rg6 39.Qf7+...Rg7 40.Rh6+...Kxh6 and the killer final move is 41.Qxh5++
   Feb-28-09 Gavrilov vs Kevorkian, 1990 (replies)
Lord Osiris: al wazir, to answer your inquiry about 28...Qf8, i believe whites best response is 29.Qh5 preventing hxg5 and threatening the f7 pawn which cannot move due to to 30.Qg6+...Kh8 31.Bxf6+ winning blacks queen. 30.Bxf7 is coming setting up a deadly attack. an option is to try to ...

Lord Osiris: Beautiful finish Dolmatov. Morphy would be proud.
   Jan-19-09 R Rubenchik vs Ashley, 2000 (replies)
Lord Osiris: Sorry mostly average Joe, but in your analysis of 30...Rbb2, your line involving 32...Nf6 is met easily with h3. this prevents 33...Ng4+ 34.Rxg4 Rd5++. 33...Nd7 is alright but after 34.Rxd7 Rxd7, 35. e4 white is down an exchange, but still alive for the moment which is much ...
   Oct-23-08 Antoshin vs F Rabar, 1964 (replies)
Lord Osiris: Rabar's fatal move here it would seem is 18...Ng8. after this move whites dominance is assured and at least a substantial material advantage is to follow. I analysed every possible move following 18...Ng8,19.Qe5+ as follows: 19...f6 loses poorly to 20.Ne6+,Kh8 or Kh6 (if Kf7, ...
   Feb-07-08 Karpov vs Shirov, 2000 (replies)
Lord Osiris: sorry, for the last scenario after Kxf7 and Qxf2, Qf6 is the winning move for white.
