ZoneChess
Member since Dec-26-20 · Last seen Jul-15-21
I'm a chess player from Tilburg, the Netherlands. Currently entering more serious grounds. Going into Nimzo chess theory and play the old Colle and Zukertort systems of attack a lot. Favorite players: MC, Tal, Van Geet.

   Feb-13-21 S Loskamp vs K Gawehns, 2002
 
ZoneChess: A nice demonstration of the attacking potential of the Owen's Defense, if the bishops are kept on the correct diagonals and with the c-pawn launched. Especially with an early flanked queen, this becomes like an overpowered Pterodactyl.
 
   Jan-29-21 NN vs Greco, 1625 (replies)
 
ZoneChess: King just has to come out the other way and be unsmothered. I assume anyone understanding the smothering concept intuits that nowadays. Still a nice old romantic example.
 
   Jan-29-21 Short vs M Bluvshtein, 2007
 
ZoneChess: It appears that after the queen sac, white's plan is just not fully there. With correct play, black can defend which he did and had exactly the right resources. A failed immortal indeed. He was bluffing against the wrong opponent.
 
   Jan-25-21 J Schulten vs Morphy, 1857
 
ZoneChess: I am glad we converted another Morphy disbeliever here :) as aforementioned, he was great against players of all strength. Had he lived now and be aware of new theory, he would have been at the top as well. Do not forget he was one of Bobby Fischer's heroes, who described Morphy ...
 
   Jan-25-21 H Bogart vs L Bacall, 1951 (replies)
 
ZoneChess: Actually Lauren was standing better for the majority of the game. The take on g2 was a great move. At move 24 just ...Qxe6 and she wins.
 
   Jan-24-21 Kasparov vs Sting, 2000 (replies)
 
ZoneChess: Woody Harrelson isn't bad either! He once drew with Kasparov (ostensibly the latter did have to catch a plane). W Harrelson vs Kasparov, 1999
 
   Jan-24-21 K Marx vs Meyer, 1867 (replies)
 
ZoneChess: Karl Marx was a pretty strong player! He sees some of the best moves recommended by the engine, other moves are surprising. It is remarkable how in chess, if there is a great move but it is defended, you play it anyway, exchange the defender, and so often it turns out ...
 
   Jan-24-21 M Lange vs Schierstedt, 1856
 
ZoneChess: The game is drawn after 15...Kg8 instead of taking. To a more advanced player it seems intuitively obvious that since the discovery and impossible retreat, rooks inactive and bishops guarding only the diagonals behind the king, and a bishop+knight on the enemy side, this would ...
 
   Jan-24-21 Steinitz vs A Mocatta, 1875
 
ZoneChess: Not a very interesting game these days because everyone now knows that gxf6 is a blunder if you also have Qxf6.
 
   Jan-23-21 W Cohn vs Tartakower, 1907 (replies)
 
ZoneChess: Cohn's play seems ok but in fact at move ten the game is already lost because of the difference in pressure and restrictions put on white's queen.
