Regular guy, mildly (not madly) interested in chess, mainly due to its computational and algorithmic nature.

   Aug-13-14 L Ortega vs P Trotto, 2004 (replies)
standardwisdom: Is black already lost after 17. Qxh6 I cannot think of any move at that point that saves black. What does silicon say?
   Jul-29-14 Fischer vs H Mobley, 1964 (replies)
standardwisdom: <JohnTal: How about 33 ... Rd1+ for Black.> I love 33 ... Rd1+ White keeps his 1 pawn advantage and may win, but I don't see any short term win.

standardwisdom: <Phony Benoni: ...27.Rfxf7 seems the way to go. That threatens the standard double rook mate on the 7th rank as well as 28.Qxg6+, and after 27...Rxf7 28.Qxg6+ Kh8 29.Rxf7 even a free check can't give Black a chance to cover both g7 and h7.> Well, to be precise, 29.. Qg8
   Jul-10-14 Caruana vs Adams, 2013 (replies)
standardwisdom: Very interesting moves 9, 11 and 13 by white, advancing the king side pawns (exposing the castle), while at the same time leaving queen side entirely undeveloped. Easier than usual Thursday, but then again I went to IHOP for breakfast, so maybe that had something to do with ...

standardwisdom: I have wondered for years, but exactly what language does Sr. chrisowen speak? Where can I pick up a dictionary? Just curious!
   Jun-16-14 Janosevic vs Ivkov, 1954 (replies)
standardwisdom: Might be black to play, but the idea that Monday = Queen sac still remains. Got a bit distracted looking for smothered mate, but the back rank mate with knight checking the f2 square is helpful.
   May-01-14 R M Bruce vs R Bruce, 1957 (replies)
standardwisdom: First of all, I got the puzzle rather easily, and I know many people didn't, so there, I said it, I feel good. (End of gloating.) Secondly though, I played through the entire game from move 1, and when I hit move 22, no one told me it was a puzzle and not even a FAINT bell ...

standardwisdom: Indeed Sally Simpson: I missed that there is indeed a better move by the queen, although the better move by the rook is denied due to the pin. Thanks!

standardwisdom: <Once>One of your master pieces, for sure. After I avoided the tiny red herring Rxg2 (as also pointed by <sneaky>), I purposefully looked for your post to find/confirm where white had gone awry. Among delightful culinary humor is your point about 17. b4. Dare I ...

standardwisdom: Swooooosh! Waaaaay over my head. I just saw that 16. Nxc6 would drop my queen so I didn't even pursue it further.
