Darth Lasker
Member since Aug-16-04 · Last seen Sep-22-10
Czech Republic. Living in Liberec now, but playing for Litomysl.

I never play online due to computer cheating. If i want to play vs computer, i do it sometimes on my own. I love live play.

I play 1.e4 and King's Gambit being white, against Sicilian i use closed variation with Nc3, Bc4 and f4. I am preparing to play Mora Gambit. With black pieces i play French and Queen Gambit declined (Tarrasch variation and Albin countergambit). I don't believe in theory and database, i do my own analyse.

I slightly suffered with some alcohol and eating disorder problems several years ago. One of the reasons was Anatoly Karpov, he was very thin.

The best player ever was Dr. Emanuel Lasker. The best female player was Vera Menchik. The best player today is Anand. The best problemists were Lloyd and Shinckman. No, Robert Fischer wasn't the best. He was "only" very good. Karpov or Korchnoi would probably crush him in 1975 WCh-match.

Darth Lasker: Ooops, he has been banned for cheating. http://www.chess.com/members/view/a... How disgraceful for titled (FM) player!

Darth Lasker: <<Btw, we must consider Ponomariov being the youngest WCh and count all FIDE WCh being in the Hall of Fame among Lasker, Alekhine, Fischer, ... [insert your favourite WCh here] , otherwise we are unfair to them, because they had no oportunity to challenge Kasparov (nor ...
 
   Oct-06-08 Capablanca vs Marshall, 1918 (replies)
 
Darth Lasker: I like this game. It shows the power of attack and defence, the way how brave player plays for win with black pieces against stronger opponent. I like Marshall's 11. - ♘g4 more than modern 11. - c6.

Darth Lasker: Yes, but there is also the dark side. Jiri Vesely has been long time StB informer under nickname "Šachista" (Chessplayer). (StB - Czechoslowak communist secret police.) Link: http://www.cibulka.com/cgi-bin/det_...

Darth Lasker: <beenthere240: I would appreciate it if some expert could tell me why this is a draw.>It was playoff match game and black had to win, Chiburdanidze was point ahead and needed draw only. Well, i would play 37. - f2+ 38.Kxf2 b5 with threat Qb6+ and let the board flame, e.g.
 
   Sep-07-07 Anderssen vs Kieseritzky, 1851 (replies)
 
Darth Lasker: <<crafty> 20. ... Ba6 21. Nc7+ Kd8 22. Nxa6 Qc3 23. Bc7+ Qxc7 (eval -0.44; depth 12 ply; 5000M nodes)> Chigorin analyzed this line and the conclusion is: white still wins!

Darth Lasker: Many years ago... In "Ceskoslovensky Sach" 9/1986 there was an article about some European girls cup in Vilnius. Ildiko Madl dominated, Camilla came 2nd. The game Madl vs Baginkaite was kinda sharp: Camilla sacrificed three pawns and got dangerous attack, then she even offered

Darth Lasker: Well, again. About Evans you should anwer these points: A) 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 and now 3. - Bc5 probably isn't the best move. 3. - Nf6 promises more (e.g. 4.Ng5 Bc5! - Traxler counterattack - or 4.d4 ed 5.0-0 Bc5 6.e5 d5!) B) Evans Declined (4.b4 Bb6) is considered good for

Darth Lasker: A)<Sneaky> Winawer: <Just to clarify: We're talking about 1.d4 d5 2.c4 c6 3.Nc3 e5!? 4.e3 and then ...e4 is strongly recommended> It means you are playing against French with tempo loss. It can't be good, moreover the similar line in French with reverse colors (1.e4

Darth Lasker: <This reminds me: I seem to recall some footage in "The Great Chess Movie" in which Timman and Ljubojevic agree that they are both more talented than Karpov and that it is mostly Karpov's team of Russian analysts that allow him such success.> This opinion is totally ...
