King Death
Member since Nov-01-11 · Last seen Aug-14-12
I live in Myrtle Point, Oregon. It's a quiet little place near the sea and I just kick back and look at games on places like this. A long time ago, I had a ~2220 FIDE rating, but don't play any more. A few times a year, I go to Las Vegas to play poker and always at World Series time.

   Aug-14-12 Kupreichik vs Razuvaev, 1980 (replies)
 
King Death: One of the shorter games with these two but longer than this one for sure. Razuvaev vs Kupreichik, 1970

King Death: <FSR> One more thing is that if you stub your toe a doctor will call that a "pre existing condition". Like you said insurance carriers want to suck you dry. Oh yeah, then they'll do everything they can for you. Ha!

King Death: <Xeroxx: This just in Andersson is committed to winning.> When it comes to stating the obvious you're 2750 at least.

King Death: What <achieve> quoted makes sense, when Karpov was young his memory was better and he could memorize some. Of course Karpov's positional play was so strong that it was hard for even the top players to beat, if Kasparov in their matches had a tough time.

King Death: <drik> Maybe he doesn't.

King Death: This is a puzzle I might solve in a day or longer.

King Death: Marshall was a fine all around player, unfortunately in his play he's remembered more than anything for the thrashings he took in matches against some of the all time greats. It's good to see that folks recognize him for what he did for the game.

King Death: <drnooo> Then there was the interview where Botvinnik said that Smyslov was the best player in the world in the 50s. In spite of <RookFile's> rants on other pages that Reshevsky was (in the face of any reason) I like Smyslov for that, 2 clear Candidates wins and a ...
