Well, basically I'm a 17 year old from southwest Iowa. I don't get much tournament action, but I've been told that I'm very good. I'm here and on as many chess things as I can to improve my play in hopes to play in college (hopefully at MIT). My favorite player is either Paul Morphy or the great Ruy Lopez.. just cuz I enjoy the opening. Any help or criticism at any time is greatly appriciated.

mdorothy: I thought 28...Re3+ looking for either the queen with 29. Kxe3 Qxg4 or the mate with 29. Kf4 Qe5#

mdorothy: <chessmoron> 1...g4 2. Rf4 leads to an adventageous endgame for black. 2...Bg5 with the exchange to follow. The passed d-pawn, supported by the rook and king on the outside should cause too many problems for white. 2. Rd3 Re5+ 3. K(anywhere) Rxe1 Black will get the knight ...

mdorothy: <yoozum> I like your "Don't drink and derive." However, I must admit, I broke it as recently as the last time I responded to a math problem posed on this very forum.

mdorothy: I got to the ending position immediately, but began looking for a mate to follow QxR RxR.... Obviously I didn't find one, and decided to be content with the extra bishop.
   May-01-05 Ftacnik vs Uhlmann, 1978 (replies)
mdorothy: No, the whole point is having the rook on c6 protecting the 6th rank. If black follows with Rc6, white simply takes, and the rook continues to protect e6, so if 62...e6+ 63. Rxe6, the g-pawn falls immediately, and its just too easy.

mdorothy: dead drunk and i still solved it in 2.2 sec
   Jan-05-05 Robert James Fischer (replies)
mdorothy: Agreed, Fischer's own decisions and actions got him where he is. I don't think anyone quite knows where he got his 'above the rules' stance. I wish someone could really get into his mind and see what came before.

mdorothy: <JamesKnight> I was thinking the EXACT same thing when I saw him!
   Dec-28-04 Shirov vs Khalifman, 1995
mdorothy: Thanks, who. Having it linked here helps a lot, cuz I rarely have the time to make the connection between sites on games. It is really nice to have both their annotation and the viewer on chessgames to look at it move-by-move. BTW Nice game, Shirov.
   Dec-17-04 W Doubleday vs Kudrin, 2004 (replies)
mdorothy: Well, I just went on a fun, but wrong trip through this. I'll tell it for no particular reason. I intuitively saw Rxh2+ (I see many of the first moves in these puzzles intuitively), and like I do many times, I just barely analyzed the followup, because I don't usually spend a lot ...
