My <other> favorite commercial:


-- My Openings --

<White>: I mainly play <<<1.e4!!>>> My favorite variations are the Closed Spanish, English Attack, and many gambits that I experiment with every once in a while for a surprise.

<Black>: I play many different Sicilians against 1.e4, mostly the Najdorf though. Against 1.d4 I play the NID, QID, and QGD.

-- My Game Collections --

Game Collection: The Ruy Lopez This one covers almost EVERY variation in the Ruy, and also has some interesting links for people wanting to learn more about this opening.

Game Collection: The Open Games: 1.e4 e5 Together with my collection on the Ruy Lopez, this collection completes my coverage of every opening after 1.e4 e5. Great for learning all those annoying deviations like the Petroff and Philidor and how to beat them as white.

Game Collection: The Greatest Blunders in Chess Blunders! If you're sitting at your computer on a rainy day with nothing to do, these will entertain you! (no rhyme intended)

-- My Best Mates Ever --

(I'm white) 1.d4 f5 2.Bg5 h6 3.Bh4 g5 4.e3 gxh4?? 5.Qh5#

(I'm black) The smothered mate that everyone dreams of: 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e5 3.dxe5 Ng4 4.Bf4 Nc6 5.Nf3 Bb4+ 6.Nbd2 Qe7 7.a3 Ngxe5 8.axb4?? Nd3#

chessman95: <the humiliation if I were, say, to be crushed in a miniature... this goes for most other questionable or outright bad gambits as well.> True. I always feel a little bit of extra pressure to win whenever I play some strange defense or unsound gambit, which I find very ...

chessman95: 6.b3 is interesting. The end position looks like it has lots of life left in it to me... agreed draws like this annoy me.

chessman95: <If your going to play the Sicilian, play the Dragon!> It's interesting, but in Yasser Seirawan's beginner's "Winning Chess Openings" I recall him recommending the Scheveningen Variation for those who are first trying out the Sicilian... not that I agree or anything, but ...

chessman95: <I did catch that sprightly 16-11 game today. Suddenly, the Tigers' pitching doesn't look all that bad.> I also watched that game today... it was quite a slugfest. I don't know what it is about Yankees-Red Sox games, but they always seem to provide plenty of weekend ...

chessman95: <acirce> Thank you for the reply. That's all I wanted to know.
   Apr-22-09 B Barth Sahl vs S Bjerke, 2005
chessman95: Crafty 17.9 found both 10.c3 and 10.Bxf6 to be stronger than the 10.e5 played in this game. It doesn't appear that white was very well prepared to "reveal" his "novelty".
   Apr-20-09 zanshin chessforum (replies)
chessman95: <blacksburg> I just meant a "checking system" like <zanshin> pointed out that Crafty uses, that could look for certain characteristics in a position that would make a positions drawn. <I believe the reason the closed positions are not included in the evaluation is ...

chessman95: <Dmaster995> (I'm assuming you play the Bird with white.) What do you play against the From Gambit? It seems to me that accepting it is too dangerous, or maybe you could suggest a solid line for white against it? From the opening explorer transposing to the King's Gambit
   Apr-19-09 Sicilian (B27) (replies)
chessman95: Thanks <refuter> and <MaxxLange>. I had strongly considered sacing the rook, but decided to go ahead and let it take the knight instead. Is this line mentioned in any books?
   Apr-18-09 A Petrosian vs L Hazai, 1970 (replies)
chessman95: Could white have played Qxa5+ and still won? Please someone provide computer analysis on this endgame. Also, is there any better line for white from move 47 on? Thanks :)
