Broon Bottle
Member since Jan-03-05 · Last seen Jan-29-17
I'm like Tal, not in playing style (I'm d4 white and Caro-Kann), but that, like the great man, I like a tipple. I'm a pub player who lives near Tower Bridge, London. My favourite current player is Morozevich. At last we have real excitement with the new wave of Raj, Mah, Carls and Karj. I also love two of the greatest never to become world champion, Schlecter and Rubinstein. I play on gamecolony as Lettuce-Leaf but prefer to play pub chess. And yes, I got my name from the comic Viz. Ch cheers all.

Broon Bottle: And. Lest we forget. What's happening Boris, old bean?
 
   May-13-12 Karpov - Fischer World Championship Match (1975) (replies)
 
Broon Bottle: Lack of games is a major reason why I rank F behind Kasparov, Karpov, Capa and Alekhine.

Broon Bottle: 'Pure American'? Just the same as a true Englishman. At least we didn't slaughter the native peoples.
 
   Sep-17-11 Peter Svidler (replies)
 
Broon Bottle: How did I miss Mr Svidler? He likes cricket, rock music, has a sense of humour and is almost a casual player. Just like me: I'm trying to reach casual standard. Move over Moro - you're too serious - Pyotr is my new favourite.

Broon Bottle: What's Bill doing now?

Broon Bottle: Bobcrisp, what do you mean 'minority'? In London as in the cities of the US the term has no meaning. We are all Earthings. Peace

Broon Bottle: Isn't Vaga supposed to be something of a magician with his knights? ch-cheers

Broon Bottle: Am i missing something? Why no shinanigans by Topo's team? They have a reputation to live up to. ch-cheers
 
   Apr-03-10 Larsen vs Hartston, 1973 (replies)
 
Broon Bottle: I believe that Hartston lost to Uhlmann and Larsen in the final rounds and missed his GM title. This was 1972 when a GM title was special. He would have become the UK's first modern GM (Miles was 1976, I think).

Broon Bottle: Give me what Capa had, please. ch-cheers
