I'm a North American, but live in Guatemala.

In terms of chess, I'm an amateur of mediocre ability. I have loved chess since I was in grade school, but only played in one tournament, which was when I was a kid.

And yes, I do love cats. Full Member

catlover: I love black's king walk right into the enemy camp, ending the perpetual check.
   Oct-11-21 Nunn vs Bronstein, 1975 (replies)
catlover: I always enjoy Bronstein's games.
   Oct-09-21 Nakamura vs Duda, 2021
catlover: If 34...Qxc1, 35 Rc4 and black will lose material.
   Sep-20-21 Stahlberg vs Petrov, 1938 (replies)
catlover: Okay, so if 28. Rxe2 g4+ 29. Kf4 Rxe2. It would make a nice Monday puzzle. I don't know if this line is typical of the Spielmann variation, but white came out of the opening with a cramped position. I wonder where Stahlberg went wrong.

catlover: <Phony Benoni>, it took me a minute or two. Correct me if I'm wrong, but as I remember it, the Monday puzzles generally used to be sacrifices, usually involving the queen. Now the Monday puzzles tend to be a bit more subtle and less easy.
   Sep-10-21 W Schmidt vs J Lewi, 1968 (replies)
catlover: Too difficult for me. Maybe I'll remember the solution to this puzzle next time around.
   Sep-05-21 A van Foreest vs Euwe, 1926 (replies)
catlover: What a beautiful back-rank mate ending. Nice job on the pun, as well.
   Aug-25-21 M Karthikeyan vs M Matlakov, 2019 (replies)
catlover: It is a line from "Row, Row, Row Your Boat."
   Aug-23-21 P Kranzl vs Blatny, 1991 (replies)
catlover: Well done by Blatny. Krazny tried to run a Ponziani scheme but it backfired.
   Aug-06-21 T Bush vs A Carter, 1976 (replies)
catlover: This was a fun GOTD. I enjoyed the game, but I enjoyed everyone's humorous posts even more.
