Capablanca44
Member since Jul-24-07 · Last seen Jan-30-16
I was taught Chess at 11 years old by an older brother. This was back in 1955. Ever since, I have found Chess to be fascinating. I have played over 600 games of Tournament Chess from 1984 to 2007, and my rating has hovered mainly between 1500 to 1776. I am an intermediate player. During this time, I have built up an excellent Chess Library, and I do enjoy replaying the games of the great Grandmasters of the past.

   Nov-15-13 Carlsen vs Anand, 2013 (replies)
 
Capablanca44: Carlsen illustrated his endgame expertise by using his two outside passed pawns to deadly effect. He also had an active centralized King which helped in giving him a winning edge.The brilliant use of his Rook kept those invincible passed Pawns well protected. All in all, a ...
 
   Nov-13-13 Anand - Carlsen World Championship (2013) (replies)
 
Capablanca44: The fourth Chess World Championship game was a real chess battle. It showed Anand's sense of centralization. His Rooks and Knights were dominant in the centre of the board most of the game. On the other hand Carlsen's Rooks and Bishop were on his first rank through most of the ...
 
   Oct-24-11 Carlsen vs H Harestad, 2003 (replies)
 
Capablanca44: After the Knight sacrifice (35.Nh5+ gxh5)a b1 h7 diagonal is opened up for the Bishop at c1. Then the sacrifice of the Queen (36.Qxg5 fxg5)opens up the f1 f8 file enabling the Rook to give a deadly check at f7. The tempting King capture of the Knight (37... Kxh6) is in fact a ...
 
   Aug-08-09 Nakamura vs Ponomariov, 2009 (replies)
 
Capablanca44: This game shows the importance of development. By move 16, Nakamura was fully developed, but Ponomariov still had two Rooks and a Bishop to develop. Also his King was still in the center and ended up being stuck there for the duration of the game. By move 17, Nakamura had ...
 
   Apr-30-09 A Samsonkin vs Nakamura, 2009 (replies)
 
Capablanca44: This game was a truly remarkable game. First sacrifice was 17.Ne6 ... opening up e8-h5 diagonal. A second sacrifice of White's Bishop at g5 deflected Black's Queen from the main attack on Black's King.A third sacrifice of White's Rook moving to c7 resulted in Black losing a ...
 
   Feb-05-08 Rozentalis vs B Barth Sahl, 1988 (replies)
 
Capablanca44: A very exciting and remarkable game. Rapid and efficient development of the White pieces is superbly illustrated in this game. This game also shows a well executed attack that results in a King unable to defend itself as mate becomes inevitable. White also demonstrates the ...
 
   Jan-24-08 Adams vs Van Wely, 2008 (replies)
 
Capablanca44: The double threat of loosing the Knight or loosing the exchange of Knight for Rook was too much for Black. White's two outside pass Pawns would also make it an easy endgame win.Tactics and positional play ensured the win for White. Great game Michael!!
 
   Jan-20-08 D Reinderman vs Kasparov, 1999 (replies)
 
Capablanca44: Kasparov made sure that White`s King did not have any access to the adjacent c file. Another technique to ensure the safety of the Pawn Duo. We can really learn a lot from the expert endgame technique used in this game. Hence the placement of the Black Rook on the c file was ...

Capablanca44: Bobby Fischer has made a significant contribution to Chess Literature. He wrote My 60 Memorable Games and this book has turned out to be a classic. Many of us Chess fans have referred to it from time to time. He also wrote Bobby Fischer Teaches Chess. This book was meant for ...
 
   Dec-29-07 A Tarnowski vs Averbakh, 1950 (replies)
 
Capablanca44: The endgame demonstrates the importance of giving your King an attacking role and ensuring its effectiveness by giving it access to the center. The White Rook was used to restrict Black's King from playing an active role by not allowing it to enter White's half of the board. ...
