Hello people,
My reallife name is Alparslan, I'm 17 years old, I live in Germany, in Bavaria to be exact. I have started to play chess actively in 2007, when I heard that there will be a Chess Club in School again. (It was closed when I was in 5th in 2003)

I'm a very ambitious Chess player, as I've become quite succesful in youth tournaments where I live. I don't have a FIDE Elo yet, my current DWZ (German rating) is 1774. The Chess Club I play for is SC Kitzingen 1905, and I play in our 2nd highest team. (4th is lowest)

I like brave Chess Players, who changed the Chess World with their ideas, and/or played against the zeitgeist of the Chess philosophy of their time. Nimzowitsch, Botvinnik, Tal, Shirov, to name some of them.

Of course I also respect 'the best of the best', like Fischer, Kasparov, Karpov, Ivanchuk but also Morphy, Anderssen, etc.

My favourite game is Kasparov-Topalov (1999 Wijk an Zee), in which Kasparov played a magnificent rook sacrifice and won the game about 15-20 moves later with a Queen vs a Rook up. But thanks to Chessgames I've got to know many other incredible Chess Games, and I hope I will get to observe and analyze many other awsome games.

   Feb-03-14 R J Dive vs H Westerinen, 1989 (replies)
 
Gouvaneur: Not a good game of the day. Probably chosen for the sake of the pun. Anyway, <Phony Benoni> is right of course, White simply oversaw a mate with 22.Bxe5. The game looks quite spectacular, but if you analyze it a bit you will find out that both sides played rather mediocre ...

Gouvaneur: @morfishine: If you argue that way, then none of Morphy's games are worthy of GOTD. And actually, no game with a gambit-opening is worthy of GOTD. I really liked Spike Ernst playing in a "geometric" way, swinging the Queen from e1 to b1 to h7. Amateurs like me only see the ...
 
   Dec-25-13 Alekhine vs A Fletcher, 1928 (replies)
 
Gouvaneur: @Boster: 1.Bh7+ Kh8 2.Bc2+ Kg8 3.Tg2+ Bxg2 4.Bh7+ Kh8 5.Bg6+ Kg8 6.Qh7+ Kf8 7.Qxf7# seems to do the job :).
 
   Aug-15-12 Lasker vs Phillips / Denker / Platz, 1938 (replies)
 
Gouvaneur: A very fine win by Lasker, who by then was already quite old. A Patzer would never play a move like 15.axb5!, winning two pawns for the exchange, but move his rook instantly after it being attacked. Following that it was just masterly play, leaving Black no counterplay and slowly ...
 
   Aug-14-12 J Finnegan vs R P Allen, 1948 (replies)
 
Gouvaneur: Lovely attacking game by Finnegan against Allen, both unknown players. I love it how their only game recorded is being honored by becoming GOTD. Even if they didn't achieve anything in their life, this game will make us remember those two guys, who probably aren't even living ...
 
   Apr-07-11 Diep vs Crafty, 2004 (replies)
 
Gouvaneur: What a boring game. I don't like Computer Chess at all.
 
   Mar-23-11 Fritz vs Yace, 2003
 
Gouvaneur: Typical Computer chess, seriously...
 
   Feb-28-11 Janowski vs Steel, 1893 (replies)
 
Gouvaneur: Very inspiring game by Janowski. His central pawns are defended well and once the pawns can go forward, it becomes very dangerous for black. Pretty Queen sac in the end.
 
   Feb-15-11 Flohr vs E Eliskases, 1930 (replies)
 
Gouvaneur: What a positional crush by Flohr. Demonstrates really well the power of the hanging pawns, once they have the support they need. Black had no counterplay in the center at all!
 
   Aug-13-10 Bogoljubov vs L Schmid, 1949 (replies)
 
Gouvaneur: <kevin86> Believe it or not, this game has been a serious one. Why would Bogoljubov just throw away a game like this? Lothar Schmid said in an interview in chessbase.de (German chessbase site) that he is very proud of this game.
