Just some ye olde Gen-X patzer

   Dec-01-21 J A Torres vs R Gonzalez, 2000 (replies)
phantasmagorium: <al wazir> Completely agree! Since the "Very Easy" and "Easy" category puzzles are mostly meant for less strong players (or at least, should be), a solution should mean that if we can solve it, the game is over even in a game between such players. I would guess that ...
   Nov-29-21 Carlsen - Nepomniachtchi World Championship Match (2021) (replies)
phantasmagorium: <jphamlore> well said, about the rating system "inhibits the lifetime growth of talented players".
   Nov-29-21 I Madl vs Julia Horvath, 1999 (replies)
phantasmagorium: <agb2002> <unferth> yup. I did not notice that. White wins one more pawn and wins easily, as both of you point out.
   Nov-14-21 Gelfand vs Kramnik, 1996
phantasmagorium: Wow... thanks GM <MikhailGolubev> and <OhioChessFan> for the great tactical insight. Hmmm.... even after <GMMG> showed the tactics, it took me a couple of minutes to see why that shot works! Sorry, I am just a patzer.
   Nov-10-21 L Espig vs Tal, 1982 (replies)
phantasmagorium: <JonnyT> <carpovius> Yup... absolutely hilarious finish! :D I could only wonder at what point White got into lost position. I guess I would laugh if I win this sort of game - or even if I lose (after the surprise and disappointment subside, at least). This game ...
   Nov-06-21 M Sorokin vs Ulibin, 1986 (replies)
phantasmagorium: Considering that White even bothered to play 15. Bb5, I could only wonder why he did not do 18. Bxc6 right away to eliminate the potentially dangerous dark horse. As <mel gibson> points out, it will indeed result in a much stiffer resistance than White offered in the ...
   Oct-25-21 M Kappe vs Kasparov, 1977
phantasmagorium: <MrJafari> Seems like after 31. Bxa5 Nf5 black regains the pawn (32. f4 Bc5+ and after White's king moves, the pawn at g3 is gone). Dunno if this is better or worse for Black, though.
   Oct-12-21 Miles vs Sosonko, 1984
phantasmagorium: Seeing how isolated and lonely White's King is after move 25, if I had had a sip of vodka too many (that is to say, if I had had a sip of vodka), I might have been tempted to try 25... Nh3+. Say, 26 gxh3 Bh6. Hmmm... I wonder if I am onto something. White's situation reminds
   Oct-11-21 G Szuveges vs A Kulashko, 1999
phantasmagorium: Why does white resign so early? After 17. Qxd2 he is materially "only" one pawn down, and although his position is also bad, there is still a lot of play. Or, did he accidentally touch another piece?

phantasmagorium: <moronovich> I am so sorry for your son. May the Lord bless him and you as well.
