I am a Spanish student who enjoys playing chess for fun.Iīm not a strong player, but if I happen to be inspired I can bother more experienced opponents.I admire many players: Pillsbury,Steinitz,Alekhine,Keres,Bronstein... Iīm keen on open games and on the French opening.
I hope we can have a good time and exchange some ideas.

   Apr-28-03 Queen's Gambit Declined, Exchange, Positional line, 6.Qc2 (D36) (replies)
I.Carras: Sure that 124 games are not enough to draw accurate conclusions.I am positive that this opening is good for White.It has more poison than what one may think at first.If Black plays correctly Black is ok, but itīs hard to win against a strong player in that kind of position.Refutor ...

   Mar-25-03 J Matschego vs Falkbeer, 1853 (replies)
I.Carras: This game is interesting in spite of the fact that Matchego did not play correctly.Defensive skills were not developed in those halcyon days.Blackīs attack is overwhelming.Relax and enjoy it.By the way, it is worthwhile finding the sequence of moves which checkmates the white ...

I.Carras: I also think heīs an excellent player.However, I find him somewhat erratic;he has glorious games but I guess he lacks sth and I donīt know what.By the way, the book youīve mentioned is very interesting.
