   Jan-23-08 Corus Group A (2008) (replies)
qskakaley: It's funny, I even found a DIFFERENT chessbase article proving myself wrong...from 2001. I must have been dreaming that only I could defend with a rook against a lovely queen :)
   Dec-19-07 King's Gambit Accepted (C34) (replies)
qskakaley: Okay, I gotta say, I'm lovin' the King's Gambit these days! I think I just graduated from beginner status the other day (in terms of overall chess abiility/strategy) because I've been on a tear lately. I think the key for me was realizing that I can't just shoot for tactics to win
   Dec-10-07 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
qskakaley: I have to agree with the sentiment that Carlsen's openings were not the best choices for him. However, having said that, I still think Kamsky would have beaten him in this match (maybe not in classical games, but in the rapids? Yes.) The Carlsen that got himself into the semis ...
   Dec-07-07 Gata Kamsky (replies)
qskakaley: Okay, I have to preface this by saying I am by no means anti-Kamsky, but does he HAVE to wear the SAME SHORT-SLEEVE BUTTON UP EVERY DAY?!? Am I right? Maybe we should start a pool so we can buy Gata a new shirt... P.S. Good job so far, Gata...
   Dec-07-07 Fischer vs Ree, 1968 (replies)
qskakaley: Can someone please tell me how 25.Bd2 isn't a better move? Doesn't it virtually win material by force?
   Nov-26-07 G Mammadova vs O Girya, 2001 (replies)
qskakaley: As a bit of a beginner, I'd like to add that although this puzzle may be easy for many (most?) of you, I appreciate chessgames putting in a couple of "easy" puzzles as well. If chessgames only catered to those that have been playing for years, then beginners (such as myself) would
   Nov-23-07 M Thaler vs S Sloan, 2003 (replies)
qskakaley: thanks <crafty>!

qskakaley: Thanks <zanshin>. That's good to hear! Hopefully that's the case with the new Fritz!
   Nov-16-07 Kramnik vs Shirov, 2007 (replies)
qskakaley: Is it just me, or doesn't Magnus' draw against Kramnik's Catalan earlier look even more impressive with the way Kramnik has been playing with it? I believe Kramnik said in an interview after that match that he believed that his own play was without fault, and that Magnus' play was
   Nov-16-07 Kamsky vs Jakovenko, 2007 (replies)
qskakaley: What went wrong for Kamsky after 28.Rxa4 ? Was the position not as even as I thought? I'm not sure why (and how?) 31.Raxb4 was best?
