Ernest van der Sar
Member since Apr-09-05 · Last seen Apr-07-08
26 year old from The Netherlands. Playing chess for about 20 years now. Only actively since 7 years ago. My internet rating for timeless games is 1700 currently. Blitz 1790. Highest something like 1900. Basic strategy is attacking, but being careless/unconcentrated not rarely leads to missing a move here and there.

Kasparov, Fischer and Tal I like most, but who am I to judge players who one by one would achieve a winning position after 15-25 moves playing against me?!

Ernest van der Sar: <Tenderfoot> Yes very cool, the only problem he faces afterwards is that he lost the game...
 
   Nov-04-07 Bareev vs Kasparov, 1991 (replies)
 
Ernest van der Sar: <fgh> The reason you don't see it, is because it's not on the board yet. I'm sure you'll agree that on GM-level missing a mate in 3 is called a blunder. <ToTheDeath> Young Bareev? The guy was 25 at that time. His opponent was officially the best player in the ...
 
   Oct-21-07 Krasenkow vs Nakamura, 2007 (replies)
 
Ernest van der Sar: Qxf2 really should not be that hard to find for a grandmaster. Arena 1.08, a programm which I think has a rating of 2000, found it in a couple of seconds. So I rather see it as Krasenkow being somewhat careless, ...

Ernest van der Sar: <Averageguy> Come on...Qd3 an impressive move? It's a clear blunder from white to allow this move.

Ernest van der Sar: <Marvol> Or "This is what you did see, but not considered the best move, as it is not winning"
 
   Nov-13-05 Maurian vs Morphy, 1856 (replies)
 
Ernest van der Sar: Maurian toys with Morphy?? I'd say Morphy is toying with Maurian. He refuses to resign a clearly lost game. In words he says: "Here I am, come and get me." Basically the same story as starting a game a knight down.

Ernest van der Sar: Black resigned???? What about ...34.Rxg2 35.Rxg2 Qd4+...and white has not much more than a small material advantage and his king is a good target!
 
   Aug-11-05 Kasparov vs Gulko, 1982 (replies)
 
Ernest van der Sar: I am very sure Kasparov only overlooked (a?) small detail(s) which you and me are not capable of spotting. As long as the opponents king is not safe, you can defeat him even when you're a lot more material down then Kasparov was in this game.
 
   Jul-14-05 Petrosian vs Parma, 1961 (replies)
 
Ernest van der Sar: I really can't understand why some here tend to stuff feathers up the often famous or infamous grandmaster's a*** after a great mistake by the opponent...If Parma would have been more carefull, he might have caught a draw. I wouldn't dare calling a draw a notable game for
 
   Jun-13-05 Kasparov vs Fritz, 1994
 
Ernest van der Sar: I guess Kasparov only lost these few games, cause he did not yet fully understand the way Fritz calculates it's moves. After he did, the machine is lituraly being crushed. By the way, the ones he did loose, he most of the time just missed a move during tactics, so in fact
