Backward Development
Member since Aug-17-04 · Last seen Jun-10-06
I like analyzing the openings and endgames because I think they're very interesting. In the middlegame, I like both positional play and tactically rich play. My favorite players change all the time, but right now, they're probably just the two greatest champs of all time; Kasparov and Karpov.

Backward Development: <Pizza> "Some consider that when I play I am excessively cautious, but it seems to me that the question may be a different one. I try to avoid chance. Those who rely on chance should play cards or roulette. Chess is something quite different." Tigran Petrosian

Backward Development: Although I'm not a big fan of Anderssen's, this one leaves a fine impression. W:U. Andersson B:Se. Ivanov E:Swedish Team Championship, 2000 R:1-0 1.Nf3 d5 2.d4 Nf6 3.c4 e6 4.g3 dc 5.Qa4+ Nbd7 6.Bg2 a6 7.Nc3 Rb8 8.Qxc4 b5 9.Qd3 Bb7 10.0-0 c5 11.dc Bxc5 12.Bf4 Rc8 ...

Backward Development: Perhaps the original Russian article has been posted here already, but cb.com has posted an english summary of Topalov's interview with 64. It would indicate that Kramnik is in a different class altogether than Topalov and not worthy to challenge him for the FIDE title.

Backward Development: Notes from my analysis: 8.h3!?<an unusual move order that prevents 8...Bg4 but allows 8...Na5!? with an unclear position> 13...Nb7!?<Another unusual move order. More common is 13...c4 with ...Nb7 to follow.> 14.Nf1<returns to main lines, but the advance

Backward Development: Today's Opening of the Day is a controversial opening, one that is often accused of being a purely practical weapon with which to secure draws. While this is quite probable at the highest level, I believe it offers a dynamic alternative to 2...Nc6 and is as good an ...
