Dionysius1
Member since May-08-11 · Last seen May-21-16
Decided to post on cg again without getting too fond of it. Welcome to anyone who visits my forum! I don't look much like my avatar, but that's pretty much how I think I am.

   May-13-16 USSR Championship (1959) (replies)
 
Dionysius1: That must have been a strange chess career once he was world champion. He could probably guess within 2 or 3 who his challenger was going to be so he knew his games were going to be limited to 2 or 3 opponents. A very dry kind of chess life that - would have been a kind of prison

Dionysius1: Oh come on! Stop comparing dick sizes. That's sophomoric/jejeurne/childish. Ray Keene's profile is probably bigger than Fischer's or Short's. But I don't think he would claim he's a better chess player than either of them. It's a matter of marketing - these guys have livings to ...
 
   May-05-16 Karpov vs Gavrikov, 1988
 
Dionysius1: Aye, but it's not bad as a wee memorial to Gavrikov whose death has just been reported.
 
   May-01-16 Karpov vs Unzicker, 1974
 
Dionysius1: Yes, that's lovely, but almost showy in comparison. And I suspect it's more that in the Burn game 7. Ne4 is a bad move (though who would have known?) Dion
 
   May-01-16 H Karner vs Bronstein, 1973 (replies)
 
Dionysius1: He's a piece down without compensation, and Black is in a dominating position - those would be my reasons for resigning against Bronstein. There may be something tactical as well, but that should be enough I think!
 
   Apr-29-16 D Hausrath vs M Kraemer, 2006 (replies)
 
Dionysius1: Hi <Gofer> How is the final position winning for Black? Isn't White going to mate on g7 or h8?
 
   Apr-29-16 Nakamura vs Kasparov, 2016 (replies)
 
Dionysius1: I wish top GMs would NEVER take moves back. It's hard enough to get my club colleagues to accept "touch it move it" and "your hand's off, the move's over" without the idols setting a bad example. Darn it, it's a matter of integrity and honour, and honourably is how I like to see ...
 
   Apr-28-16 J Lundin vs J M Bellon Lopez, 2015 (replies)
 
Dionysius1: I saw as far as 36...Kf6 and assessed there would be enough for Black. I wish I had seen as far as 38...ef3 and that the advanced king and the p on f3 and the rest of the black pawns would make it enough. Lovely, and not so hard for a Thursday - it's the first one I've ever ...
 
   Apr-21-16 D Rivera vs Hybl, 1965 (replies)
 
Dionysius1: In the final position white is threatening mate with g6 if Black ever stops checking him
 
   Apr-20-16 Morphy vs E Morphy, 1849
 
Dionysius1: Nope - it reads very sensibly and moderately to me!
