Hello everybody. My name is Alfonso and I am from Spain. Some of my favourite players are Fischer, Capablanca, Alekhine, Morphy and the Romantics (Mac Donnell, Labourdonnais, Anderssen, Pillsbury), Lasker, Rubinstein, Nimzovitch, Reti (and the Hypermodernists), Botvinnik (and the Soviet School). I like also Karpov. (I don't mean to suggest that Kasparov is not a good player. I learnt to play chess at eleven, in 1984. When Karpov and Kasparov played in my country in 1987, I used to support Karpov.) You can add to the list Anand and Carlsen. In short, I like: -Romantic players.
- Positional games la Capablanca, Karpov or Petrosian. -Ficher is my favourite player, and then possibly come Botvinnik, Capablanca, and the aforementioned. -Tal: I like him too. He was maybe apart from the "official" Russian School, so to say. It is for something he was called the Magician of Riga!
