simsan: Perhaps someone should update the "notable games" section?

simsan: Hi! In a 3 0 blitz game just now I got this position [DIAGRAM] and found the forced mate in 3 ( 30. Rc8+ Kh7 31. Bg8+ Kh8 32. Ng6#) for white. Does this mate have a name? I found it pleasing.

simsan: Ayaend: 17. Rxd6 doesn't seem to work. True, if the rook is taken, then white seems to win the rook back and gain an edge after something like: 17. Rxd6 Kxd6 18. Qxf6+ Kd7 19. Qxh8 Bxe4 20. Qxe5 Qe3 21. Qd4+ Qxd4 22. Nxd4 However, if black insteads protects the f6 pawn with 17. Rxd6
   Jun-09-14 Grischuk vs S Agdestein, 2014 (replies)
simsan: Agdestein was also in time trouble on move 39, albeit not as dire as Grischuk. Being up 2 pawns with a vulnerable king (against a very strong opponent) I guess it's easy to prioritize spending time on king safety variations and miss attacking tactics. To these guys it's probably easy

simsan: Nice game by Agdestein. I think he needed that lucky break with the overlooked exchange sac to hold this game. Still, kudos! During the game Kasparov was asked whether Agdestein could be "the world's strongest amateur". His immediate response was "No, I think I am perhaps the world's

simsan: I also briefly looked at 30. Re8. This may look equally tempting, but black has the zwischenzug 30. .. Qc1+ which forces a queen exchange and eases the pressure in the f-file.

simsan: <Jigsaw> and Anand obviously did as well because he didn't play 20. ...Bg7 21. Ne8+ is the start of the same # in 3.

simsan: I don't know if Mr. Gates would have played this game if he had known it would spawn a "player page" on

simsan: Jon Ludvig is now one game shy of adding a second straight tournament victory to his belt. Rp after 8 rounds is 2845. This guy is on fire!
   Oct-31-13 W Tabakiernik vs Keene, 1963 (replies)
simsan: I went for the somewhat inferior line with 18.Bxf6 and not the game continuation. Calculated it to the point where I felt secure that the sustained pressure on f7 would allow white to remain with the initiative. However, when I now study this variation with an engine it seems that ...
