patzer of patzers
Member since Oct-28-08
A little bit about my chess playing:

I can't really compare my strength to a FIDE or USCF rating right now, but I am probably still a beginner. I think of my style as aggressive, as 1)almost all of my games involve me leading an attack on my opponent, and 2)I have basically no sense of strategy whatsoever. I do know that I am a very impatient player, often unwilling to prepare my attacks or consolidate my position before attacking. I just get the feeling that it will give my opponent too much time to refute my attack. This usually ends up in either my attack fizzling out and leaving me helpless, or my opponent leading a better prepared and more dangerous attack that I am unable to defend. Another not very smart part of my playing is that when I'm considering two moves, one giving a small, clear advantage and the other with greater possibilities but also incalculable (for me) risk, I usually choose the latter. Guess what happens?

Regardless of my purportedly tactical inclinations, I'm very prone to tactical blunders. My lasy game with a friend (the worst I've ever played against him) involved me giving away TWO minor pieces! Not only that, but when he took my knight, it put his queen on a square that was ripe for attacking me! X_X

patzer of patzers: <benjinathan: I saw it but assumed I had missed because I thought there had to be more :-(> Don't worry, from what I know, Monday puzzles almost never have much more than this. <Jazzer32: I think that 24.Rxb7+ works even better. after 24... Bxb7 25.Qxe6+ black ...

patzer of patzers: Um...I think I'll let you handle all of that. I don't really know much about this conversation, just saw you talk about Spassky's unhappiness about being World Champion and thought I'd use some quotes from him.

patzer of patzers: Of course, there was little use in my getting so worked up over such a matter as someone's birthday, but now that it is settled, perhaps we should move on to another issue: getting a picture of Pirc up here! Google Images provides pictures that are a little grainy or ...

patzer of patzers: Since nobody's said anything, I'll give Fritz 6's new evaluation and close it (promise!): h2+ is mate in 40 while Ke4 is -6.34.

patzer of patzers: Hmm, half a year later, as I read my comment, it looks pretty stupid to me. I take it back; not the meaning behind it, necessarily, but the tone and the words used to convey it. I honestly have no idea what move <goldenbear> was talking about when he/she suggested ...

patzer of patzers: I checked Wikipedia (the world's most reliable reference), and apparently: "A silent <e> was often appended to words. The last consonant sometimes was doubled when adding this <e>; hence ſpeake, cowarde, manne (for man), runne (for run)." Sometimes, you ...
