JuliusCaesar
Member since Mar-24-08
Retired patzer. Reached a 'high' of about 2000 FIDE many moons ago. I firmly believe Magnus Carlsen will go on to become the 'greatest of them all.' I wouldn't be surprised if he won the world title while still a junior.

   Dec-11-10 Karpov - Fischer World Championship Match (1975) (replies)
 
JuliusCaesar: I think Fischer knew he'd run out of fuel. Once he'd won the title, the motivation to carry on playing, pouring his entire soul into the game, simply vanished. It took extreme poverty to bring him back to the board and only then against an opponent who wasn't really ...
 
   Dec-07-10 Jobava vs H H Hernandez, 2008 (replies)
 
JuliusCaesar: This one was easy. 12. Nd5 is a typical sac in these positions, very much la Tal. In fact, White played the entire game in the spirit of the great Latvian.
 
   Nov-30-10 Hikaru Nakamura (replies)
 
JuliusCaesar: There's actually a third possible outcome: shared spoils (20-20).
 
   Nov-17-10 World Blitz Championship (2010) (replies)
 
JuliusCaesar: I wish people would just drop this 'owns' idiocy. It's witless.
 
   Nov-10-10 Nakamura vs Kramnik, 2010 (replies)
 
JuliusCaesar: Perhaps Naka's digital persona differs from his 'real' persona. He seemed quite humble; in fact, he appears happy to be invited to such a big event and to share a stage with a former water closet.
 
   Nov-03-10 A J Goldsby vs V Hodgson, 2009 (replies)
 
JuliusCaesar: I, for one, am glad that LMAJ takes the time to post his games - often well annotated. There's a huge gap in (instructional) chess literature when it comes to helping lower-rated players (not beginners) improve their skills. I can't think of a better way to do that than posting
 
   Oct-31-10 Cap d'Agde (2010) (replies)
 
JuliusCaesar: I had no idea Americans were a race. You learn something new every day.
 
   Oct-27-10 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
 
JuliusCaesar: I agree, bobwhoosta, with your 'general and debatable' assessment. Like Karpov and Petrosian, Magnus has demonstrated patience when defending passive and prospectless positions, where a draw is all he can hope for. Kasparov and Fischer both hated such positions.
 
   Sep-26-10 N Grandelius vs E Safarli, 2010 (replies)
 
JuliusCaesar: Though even in your variation, Spiff, Black seems to lose material. After 19...Bd5, white can play 20. f6 (threatening mate and the queen on e7) 20...Bxe4 (forced) 21.fxe7 and Grandelius wins
 
   Sep-19-10 Larsen vs Petrosian, 1966 (replies)
 
JuliusCaesar: This is a very famous game, so I knew the answer.
