Columbus Ohio native. Only played in 1 tournament and came in 2nd in a large B section! (Ohio Chess Congress c1980) Got a provisional rating of 1922. I have had probably a dozen different chess computers and another dozen computer engines on software. I'm probably class A or maybe expert when my brain works.

deefree: This is the kind of two move combination you don't want to miss as a player. Master these with consistancy in your own games and gain a lot of rating points! 34...Rxc2 followed by forking king and bishop.

deefree: 19...Qd6?? is an unfortunate choice. 19...Qe6 would keep him playing, though his chances would be slim.

deefree: I would rate this a "2" with the usual Monday puzzle being a "1". The hardest seen here is a "4". In other words, this one took some thinking and looking and had a couple of possible false leads, but really is not that difficult.

deefree: That't the prettiest (and toughest) mate combo I've seen in awhile. Very exciting and the kind of thing that inspires people to play more chess. (and raises the hope that someday....) The final rook move is so great, the nasty discovered check while moving to protect the en prise ...

deefree: I found Qh4 in a few seconds but don't know why. (or maybe I should say I wasn't led to it by any concrete variation or exact calculations) I was thinking White would be sunk because then h3 is not a defense owing to the pin on the g2 pawn. The back rank stuff was the first thing I ...

deefree: Variation of "Reti's mate" with a double twist. Most of the mating combinations on these puzzles are somewhat pedestrian aesthetically. This one however is not only good from a learning point of view, it's also beautiful and has a measure of that elusive "chess magic" we all crave.

deefree: <apawnandafool> Your assesment of Little ChessPartner seems pretty on. I've found it also loosens the pawns in front of the king too often. Offer a pawn trade on the side he's castled on and the program almost always trades, sometimes deeply to it's detriment. It also plays ...

deefree: I had a friend who was an expert at spotting "rook stalemates" like the ones in your crazy rooks collection. His name was Jim Nagy and we used to call it a "Nagymate" when he pulled that on someone. He did it to me twice!

   Apr-07-06 M Mukhin vs Savon, 1973
deefree: Mukin had Savon on the ropes right out of the opening and through the middle game. No endgame necessary here as Black must lose a piece due to the pressure on c6.
