Fave players: Ivanchuk, Nickoloff

   Clubfoot has kibitzed 22 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Nov-23-10 Janowski vs Lasker, 1904 (replies)
Clubfoot: Everett, stop correcting the spelling of other posters. It is a great pity we're all so out of step with you, but there is never a need to put people down. Ever. So stick to chess and your usual dimestore psychobabble.
   Apr-29-10 Anand vs Topalov, 2010 (replies)
Clubfoot: @Richard Taylor "This is simplifying things - it is pretty clear that when he (Karpov) was the World Champion, and Kasparov was young, he was the best player in the world including Fischer." It's not simplification. It's claiming to know something you cannot possibly know for the
   Jan-11-10 Gelfand vs Nakamura, 2010 (replies)
Clubfoot: Not to worry...Frogbert regularly patrols chess sites seeking to downgrade Nakamura's success by any means necessary. He even claimed/bragged that he approached Naka after his stunning blitz win over Carlsen and congratulated him on a "close match". True or not, this guy clearly ...
   May-23-07 Polugaevsky vs Tal, 1979 (replies)
Clubfoot: He was ready for Polu in 1980 but bad luck took him out: he lost two members of his family on the eve of the match and kind of sleepwalked through it.
   Mar-28-05 Vassily Ivanchuk (replies)
Clubfoot: Ivanchuk on form is the strongest player in the world and inflictor of the most humiliating losses Kasparov has suffered in his career. Even now he intimidates his higher-rated peers: just take a look at his rapid game with Svidler yesterday and his revenge fantasy against Van ...
   Mar-06-05 Karpov vs Huebner, 1982 (replies)
Clubfoot: Everett: <My point is simply this. One cannot separate play from personality> Your point is dead-ass wrong in the determinist style. Moreover your major-league baseball examples (??) are symptoms of behaviour not personality.

Clubfoot: Pascal Charbonneau is another bright Canadian light, plus he just might be banging Irina Krush, which makes him supercool by any chess standard.
   Feb-13-05 Kasparov vs Short, 1993 (replies)
Clubfoot: That's it, that's the Anti-Marshall game from Linares 2002 and sorry to Open Defence for the delay...I think it's one of the most beautiful chess games ever; it was a shock to chess commentators that Ivanchuk-Adams was not chosen as Game of the Tournament later on, but I believe it
   Feb-13-05 Petrosian vs Fischer, 1971 (replies)
Clubfoot: A heavy game, but I think Black's winning move was 41...Kb5, which picked up a square for the Bishop and presaged the eventual mating net. mohd rafi fan, I think it's a peculiar opening for Black because Fischer played reactively after Petrosian's opening blunder on the 3rd (!!) ...
   Feb-13-05 Timman vs Kasparov, 1981 (replies)
Clubfoot: Who could have expected Black's 17th move?? Timman must have seen the shape of things to come when he figured out a drawing line and got out of Dodge.
