QGD what is wrong with 3.c5? by MaxJ
In Queen gambit declined, a move like 3.c5 simply means White gives up the control of the center to Black. Black smashes through center by its b7 pawn. 1. d4 d5 2. c4 c6 3. c5 Nf6 4. Nc3 b6 5. Nf3 bxc5 6. dxc5 Qa5 7. Qa4 Qxc5 *

why do they wear suits? by MaxJ
Chess players, especially those of higher rank, use all kinds of psychological means to create sense of inferiority in their opponents in order to distract them and win games.

Please consider the following position... by MaxJ
In the initial FEN position you have an extra piece N equivalent to B-+ (~4.08). So Black can make several dumb moves.

GetClub flattened badly by Jester. by Sanny[_3_]
Here is a tough game with Easy Level. Initially Both players were giving equal attack to each other. On 39th move black played rook to a position which blocked its King.

QGD what is wrong with 3.c5? by Philip Amant
1. d2-d4 d7-d5 2. c2-c4 c7-c6 I was thinking about playing 3. c4-c5 but I can't find any references to this option. Probably it's a bad move? Can someone explain please? Thanks a lot,

Tanner and the Ethical Bankruptcy of the USCF by samsloan
About twenty years ago in the early 1990s, Tanner sent in some false and fraudulent rating reports involving games against non-existent people. He would never have been caught and it would not have been noticed except for the recent creation of the MSA which makes all tournament reports available online. Even then, nobody would have noticed except that these old results put him over 2300 giving...

kamsky or gelfand by Offramp
On May 10, 1:51*pm, Alex wrote: who will win this encounter and why? do you think gata can make it to the finals? Kamsky is a VERY hard man to beat. Even way back in 1994 Anand discovered that unless you mate Gata he will constantly wriggle and cause problems... Amazing to think that this game was 17 years ago. Kamsky is even better now.

Please analyze the game with GetClub. by The Master
On Dec 28, 6:30*am, Sanny wrote: * All else being equal, you should not allow a wayward knight to get trapped such that its only retreat allows the fatal breakup of the pawn cover in front of the king, as needlessly happened here. The Knight was trapped after 15 moves or 30 ply. So its quite hard to see that.

Grob's Angriff is being reprinted by samsloan
Grob's Angriff This book is the seminal work on the chess opening now known as Grob's Attack. This chess opening starts with 1. g2-g4 or, in Descriptive Notation, 1. P-KN4. Although the book is in German, it is written in chess notation and thus it is not necessary to know German to read this book.

Sanny Sloan? Did I play nice against Baby Level? by Sanny[_3_]
What should I have done to win this game? I tried attacking the King side with a pawn,. But the pawn at a6 was not doing much. if I didn't know any better, I'd say you play like Sam Sloan. *Same Sam style. Sanny Sloan? I am not Sam Sloan, Sam Sloan is a good Chess Player

Botvinnik analysis howler; Seventh Soviet Championship title game of1931 a joke by raylopez99
From the book by Soltis, "Soviet Chess". This "gem" (not) decided the Seventh Soviet Championship in Moscow in 1931. Botvinnik finished a point behind Kasparyan of Armenia, who had black below in the title game. But Botvinnik's suggestion of 14...Ng4 followed by ...f5-f4 instead of 14. Qf5 (which Soltis unfairly gives a ? to) is a bust, and the so- called "brilliant" move of 19...Nxf2!! is...

Legal to take notes while playing? by John Leonard
I think I know the answer to this already but I want to make sure. Is it legal for a player to take their own notes during a chess game? They are not using anything other than blank sheets of paper and a writing instrument. The notes they’re taking may be about the current position, analysis of it, possible moves, and so forth. They may be doing this while playing online or in-person. I believe...
