I live in Helsinki, Finland. I play chess for fun and like to analyze positions in depth. I do not have an official rating. I have had good results against computer programs, which may be because I have programmed one myself. I search for "the truth" in each position. After all, there are only three true evaluations: 1-0, 1/2-1/2, and 0-1.

SamuelS: <ismet: white would finish move 34 ! waste of move> How? 34. Re8+ Kf7 and what then?

SamuelS: <hirthman> What about 19...Rxc7 20. Rxc7 dxe4 21. Rc7 Qe8 22. Rxb7 f6 23. Bxe4! and now if 23...fxe5 24. Rxe7! Qxe7 25. Bxa8 and white still has the extra piece. And if black plays something like 23...Rc8 then simply 24. Bc7 and there are no tricks that work for black.

SamuelS: I got 21...Rxg2 22. Kxg2 (otherwise 22...Qxh2#) Qh3+ 23. Kh1 (23. Kg1 Bd7 (24. Kh1 f3 leads to the main variation) 24. f3 Rg8+ 25. Kf2 Qh4# (25. Kh1 Qg2#)) f3 24. Rg1 (24. Bxf3 Qxf3+ 25. Kg1 Bh3 and 26. Qh3# or Rg8#) fxe2 25. Re1 Qf3+ 26. Kg1 Bh3 and Qg2# (25. Rxe2 Qf3+ 26. Rg2 Bh3 ...

SamuelS: <blue wave>, have you looked at RandomVisitor's analysis? 30...a5 is inferior to 30...Kg7, 30...Rd8, and 30...Qe7. And I think RandomVisitor has the strongest engines and deepest searches.
   Dec-25-08 R Pereira vs F Schellmann, 2008 (replies)
SamuelS: The most forcing moves are: 28. Qxf8+, 28. Ng6+, 28. Qxb8, 28. Qxb6, 28. Bxf7, 28. Rxa5. It is easy to see that they do not work well. Sacrificing the knight at g6 would work only if Black was forced to take it with the f-pawn. Then the rook at f8 would be lost and a checkmate ...

SamuelS: I got the line 31. h6+ Kg6 32. g4! threatening 33. Qh3 and could not find a defence for black, so I guess I got the idea right.
   Jan-19-07 Shulman vs The World, 2007 (replies)
SamuelS: Let's play NID! After extremely careful analysis lasting 20 years I have concluded that the absolutely best play for both sides is: 1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 e6 3. Nc3 Bb4 4. e3 O-O 5. Bd3 d5 6. Nf3 c5 7. O-O Nc6 8. a3 Bxc3 9. bxc3 dxc4 10. Bxc4 Qc7 11. Bd3 e5 12. Qc2 Re8 13. Nxe5 Nxe5 14. ...
   Jan-15-07 Bledow vs P Bilguer, 1838 (replies)
SamuelS: <J37Geronimo>, do you mean at move 15? 15...Qxf7 16. Qxf7+ Kxf7 17. Nxe5+ Ke6 (for example) 18. Nxg4 and White is a pawn up.

SamuelS: <kellmano>, yes, it would be mangificient to beat Arno by guesssing the weight of a cow! ;-)

SamuelS: <Marmot PLF>, of course not during the game, but before it.
