Time to update my profile I think. I am Nate Young, a guitarist for the Brisbane metal band In Death ( I also do a lot of solo work and have uploaded a few covers to youtube for your enjoyment:

I'm currently studying a bachelor of music at QUT and hoping to be a session guitarist and/or make it big with my band. I'm poor but I enjoy my life and love playing live shows. At the moment my chess is limited to playing correspondence and occasionally looking at games and puzzles here but hopefully the work I do will pay off and I will have more time in the future to play chess, which I still enjoy as a hobby.

Other interests of mine include martial arts, parkour, skateboarding, anime/manga/visual novels, video games (who doesn't like a bit of escapism every now and then) but really I spend most of my time practicing guitar, learning and writing songs. My band has an EP out and is working towards a new album early next year (2011). Please check it out if you're into that thing, we work really hard.

Skylark: aldave: 21. Qg2+!
   Aug-29-11 A Masters vs A McHarg, 2009 (replies)
Skylark: Nxg4 also wins I am pretty certain. In my lines I worked out that it would either lead to a direct mate (fxg4) or win through Kxg6 Nf6 (although I hadn't looked at .. Rh8). Unfortunately thinking this was winning, I didn't look for a simple mate in 2 (despite thinking that this was ...

Skylark: Bleh. Are we going for Queen's Indian? Unless a Tarrasch or Semi-Tarrasch is on its way, count me out.

Skylark: Out of interest, I only stumbled across the pin on the g5 pawn possibility through the following variation: <65. Re7+ Kf6 66. Qf8+ Kg6 <67. Qg8+!!!!> Kh5 (67. .. Kf6 68. Qg7#, 67. .. Kh6 68. Qh7#) 68. Rh7+ Kg4 69. Rh4+!> Of course, this fantasy of mine was shattered when

Skylark: <ajk68> The system involving 9. Bc4 and 11. h4 is the old line. I believe the new line goes 9. O-O-O and 10. Kb1 but I'm not a complete theory nut.

Skylark: Here was my analysis when going about solving this problem: <Material is equal. White's pieces are awkwardly placed and lack has an appreciable pressure on White's position. The white rook at d1 and queen are both unprotected, and the white king is fairly hemped in without being ...

Skylark: <The no. of solvers finding 39...Nb5 will bear out my assessment of the move's high spottability.> So I should probably be insulted that I didn't? I spent a long time looking at the implications of Nxb3 or e2 but in the end the solution was eluding me and I peeked. Meh. The ...

Skylark: My answer was <60. .. g4> continuing with <61. hxg4 h4> leading to a win and <61. fxg4 hxg4 62. hxg4 f3>. Now I had <63. g5 Bxb2+ 64. Nxb2 f2> or <63. Kd2 b4> transposing (I hope?) into the game line. Does a computer back up my transposition? Anyways I ...
