Retired from competitive chess since 1980's. Highest ranking was just below 2000. Favorite player Capablanca obviously.

   CopyBlanca has kibitzed 25 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jan-30-19 Ribli vs Adorjan, 1983 (replies)
CopyBlanca: Looking back on my mediocre playing days it was definitely looking at every reasonable move would have made me a much better player.
   Nov-18-18 Carlsen vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
CopyBlanca: How is this going to be anything else but a draw ?
   Feb-11-18 Kasparov vs Spassky, 1983 (replies)
CopyBlanca: You guys are dreaming. Morphy,Greco,Philidor all these guys would take you to the cleaners. Lets just discuss Morphy for a bit. He was able to play multiple blindfold games at once. None of you dreamers could even begin to play a single blindfold game. When I played tournament ...

CopyBlanca: I should add that this was not Jonathon Penrose , but Roger Penrose the expert on artificial intelligence. In his example all 16 pawns opposed each other and the position was 100 per cent blocked. This position is close to his example.
   Jan-28-18 Spassky vs Tal, 1961 (replies)
CopyBlanca: Spassky one of the most underrated champions of all time.
   Nov-28-16 Carlsen vs Karjakin, 2016 (replies)
CopyBlanca: Since the openings take so little time I suggest they give only 1 hour for the first 40 moves. After the first 40 moves the current time allowances are fine.

CopyBlanca: That game by Tal I mentioned was Tal vs Kholmov from 1949. Also impressive. This might be a good time to sound the drum for the greatness of Bobby Fischer. His age 13 Queen sac against Donald Byrne. The Fischer game really inspired me as a youngster in early 1960's.
   Nov-06-15 Capablanca vs G H Hadland, 1919 (replies)
CopyBlanca: in a 40 board simultaneous this is really amazing. Capablanca, Fischer top two players of all time equal first.
   Oct-07-15 Karpov - Fischer World Championship Match (1975) (replies)
CopyBlanca: They should have given Fischer what he wanted. Look at all the boring championship matches that were draw after draw that followed. The Capablanca Alekhine match best proves Fischer's point. After about 30 games it was something like 3-3 with 24 ties.

CopyBlanca: too bad the black King can be checked by the white rook else 28 R-g2 check would be nice.
