A quick question Akuni:
In the game "?? v Da Pharoah" you claim that 18.Bxh6 was neccessary. Now this may be true, but you didn't give a reason, and I personally cannot see why Bxh6 was tactically or possitionally neccessary. Which all begs the question: why is 18.Bxh6 a critical move?
Blackadder (Nice name btw, I love rowan atkinson) did you use the move list to see the variation included? If that doesn't make it clear than I can post some more analysis.
This is my game:
Heres my game
Here's your game Sensfan
Akuni, these are wonderful. Thank you for doing this. I will post a game of mine in a couple of days, I just gotta figure out which one I want to be looked-over the most.
t/y for your offer, i'll be submitting you a game for analysis from the 3 i currently have going, then maybe we can talk, i've been thinking of getting an online tutor...this is why chess.com is so cool.......
Thanks for the analysis, Akuni.
The one thing I wonder, though, is it not worth getting 2 of his kingside Pawns (in front of his castled King) for the Knight, when the alternative is having a poor and locked in Bishop?
If Qf6 would be played (u missed it a the whole time) then it would be ok, even though u have to relie on your opponent.
Can i ask you what kind of chess lessons you give?
Here's my game. Thanks in advance!
Sorry, I didn't realise there were variation provided.
but now that I have I still have a question:
in your variation, does black recapture with the right pawn?
instead of 21.gxh5 why not exg5? (with the dual intention of playing h5 and g5)
the game might continue: Rbc8 Rd2 Qe7? (how else can black defend?) h5 gxf5 g5 Ne8 g6 fxg6 hxg6 Qg7 gxh7+ Kh8 Qxg7+ Nxg7 Rxd6 (at this point white is a pawn up with more active peices.)
This has gotten to be too much for me, so I've given it to the comp, and it's too much for IT too! King (Chessmaster Program) is sure of two things. One, that after Ne8, Black can survive, and that after Bd7 Black loses. It can't actually, starting from the position after Qxh6, determine whether exf5 or gxf5 is better conclusively. If you move it ahead a bit the score it gives both exf5 and gxf5 rises, so Ne8 a few moves beforehand would be better.
I am not following you on your offer.
Your post title is : "Free High Quality Analysis", and you follow by saying: "Very competitive, negotiable rates."
Where is the free analysis? For those that take the paying lessons?
I can submit one game only to you and if you can tell me free what I could have done differently to win or draw, I might consider your offer.
I am a 2200+ player and have played chess for over 45+ years.
You're also a pretentious ass. I have never seen a constructive post from you. Every single one has been fault finding, boastful and longwinded.
Akuni is stating exactly what he is offering. You understand this perfectly but somehow take objection? I urge you to try to find out why you feel compelled to do this. Insecure, sense of entitlement, whatever. But much more likely is you'll use your energy now to get angry at me, which is all the maturity you've shown previously.
I would have done this in a private message, but I felt Akuni, who IS helpful, polite and constructive, wouldn't mind being supported publicly.
If you had waited a few minutes then my post# 20 would have shed some light on what happened.
As for constructive posts I have many.
Here are 3 recent ones:
1. Read post# 18, http://www.chess.com/forum/view/general/which-chess-player-do-you-think-there-should-be-a-movie-about?page=1
2. Here is a comment by a poster on a forum:
from richie_and_oprah, he wrote in reply to urithbon:
I think you just need to stop trying to compare rating systems.
I strongly disagree. Rating systems need to vector.
I think Paul211 has made some excellent and accurate points.
3. One more, a comment by promote2pawn and I quote:"
great analogy paul thank you."
You can read this at:
lol, you have hundreds of posts and you can only find 3
how much approximatley will your chess lessons cost.
Here's your game Styxtwo
Hi Akuni, here's one of my turn-based games on chess.com. I've added some annotations based on my own thoughts during the game, if that helps with your analysis. Thank you.
Unfortunately, it'll be a few days before I can get to some of your games, something has happened to the analysis function, and it's not working.
On another note, lessons will be 15$/hour.
