Hey, I'm an amateur player from Tasmania, Australia. My favourite players are: Tal, Keres, Shirov, Kasparov, Kramnik, Alekhine, Fischer, Stein, Morozovich and Anand... oh and Habu... ;)

   Akireta has kibitzed 16 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Oct-09-10 Grand Slam Chess Final (2010) (replies)
Akireta: As far as I can see Carlsen doesn't have a + score against any of these players. -2 Anand -1 Kramnik = Shirov If my info is correct.
   Jun-30-08 Vladimir Kramnik (replies)
Akireta: I think this year's title match will be truly interesting - it's not so often that the true leading lights face it off in a serious match. No doubt Anand is a superb tournament player, but to sit and face the same very strong opponent day in and day out is something different... no ...
   Feb-26-07 Vassily Ivanchuk (replies)
Akireta: I hear people speak regularly of Ivanchuk's endearing eccentricities, I'm quite new to this scene, does anyone here have any interesting examples?
   Jan-27-07 Corus (2007) (replies)
Akireta: presumably not ;)
   Jan-23-07 Y Shulman vs The World, 2007 (replies)
Akireta: but really in our position I'm voting for the Nimzo.
   Dec-11-06 Capablanca - Alekhine World Championship Match (1927) (replies)
Akireta: sad that Keres didn't get to have a go... he seems to me the logical successor (at least while Alekhine still lived) a match between those two really would've been something.
   Nov-22-06 Tal Memorial (2006) (replies)
Akireta: It's funny... I seem to recall Tal writing somewhere that "to play for a draw with the white pieces is a crime against chess" ho hum.

Akireta: Does anyone know if a record has been posted anywhere of the Blitz games from the Tal Memorial? (I don't know what the precedent is with things like that.)
   Nov-22-06 The World vs A Nickel, 2006 (replies)
Akireta: I was just thinking, are there any longterm plans we can consider which result in our bishop being a tad less useless?
