   Aug-30-07 Yusupov vs Karjakin, 2007
gchristopher: By move 20 Karjakin's army is almost entirely one row ahead. In the mean while Yusupov spent his time dancing his pieces around. It seems Yusupov was only looking for a couple of material exchanges and an easy draw.
   Jul-31-07 K B Richardson vs D Andreev, 1977 (replies)
gchristopher: I think it was in Lasker's Chess Manual that this is called the Malta Cross, and that it is actually rather common. I would suppose that, since Lasker wrote so long ago, today the book would be edited to say: The Malta Cross 'was' really common. Still, if you play blitz keep ...
   Jun-17-07 T Rakic vs I Nemet, 1966 (replies)
gchristopher: I saw the rook sac. I just didn't think white would reject it. The point of the possition was rather clear (thanks to Pachman's and Kotov's books): the white king has little space against the bishop pair and the e-rook. Black has plenty of resources in this possition. I doubt ...
   Apr-07-07 L Christiansen vs L Gilden, 1976 (replies)
gchristopher: In these daily puzzles, what does it mean if I keep getting the right ideas, but the wrong tactics? In this case I saw the pawn sacrifice for the mobility of the white queen's rook, but I did not figure how to block the black bishop well enough.
   Apr-04-07 M R Sangeetha vs S Dhar, 2001 (replies)
gchristopher: An Englisman, how about black moves the other rook? Not that I meant this before, but black moving the f8 rook looks a long way from anything. That's just instinct now. What do you say?
   Apr-04-07 Short vs Sax, 1988 (replies)
gchristopher: What in God's name are children doing reading this webpage? Oh, sorry... It's only chess. I mean come ON! There's probably a whole subject in school named "Sex Ed". Kid's really don't know their older brothers take that course? PS: I did not take "Sex Ed" in school. I live in ...
   Apr-03-07 Adams vs V Dimitrov, 1993 (replies)
gchristopher: What's really easy is that white has no winning chance. The stalemate jumps to view right away.
   Feb-05-07 D J Ledger vs P K Wells, 2001 (replies)
gchristopher: If: 31. gxh4 Qd6+, then 32. Qg3 ... How exactly is black winning?
   Jan-26-07 R P Michell vs Tartakower, 1925 (replies)
gchristopher: I only got the first move. I though that white would play 54. Ne1, and after losing the g-pawn he could move in to block with rook and king. It was lost also, but it gave longer (not really stronger) defense.
   Jan-05-07 D Norwood vs S Marsh, 1992 (replies)
gchristopher: I do not presume to improve Mr. Keene's comment about black's gravest mistake, but also to allow that B column to stay open was dumb as a sack of hammers. And yet one earlier error: castling long against the white light-square bishop? I have only seen it work in blitz. In any ...
