Hi. I'm a chess fan, but a fairly weak player (~1400)

The legends whose games interest me the most are: Paul Morphy, Mikhail Tal, Bent Larsen and R.J. Fischer. I also like N. Short, J. Speelman, V. Anand and the 2 K's.

I won a blindfold game against a friend once (I was, he wasn't). That was both quite unexpected and quite funny!

LucB: Wow, Navara and Shankland did quite well also! <zakkzheng: The meaning of Wei's first name, Yi, is "playing chess". Very interesting.> Really? I thought 'Yi' meant 'one' in Mandarin: http://www.wikihow.com/Count-to-Ten... 'must be a different tone then..

LucB: Congratulations to the Champ; well done! Great performances by MVL, Wesley So and Anish Giri, the latter preventing Wesley from being unbeaten in the tournament. Vasil Ivanchuk started off like a lion, and Ding Liren had the most victories, with 7.. wow! Great tournament!

LucB: I have an VHS tape of the '88 St-John Candidates, with Korchnoi playing Hjartarsson. At one point Korchnoi got up from the board, sat in the audience and started looking at the position from the screens the audience was seeing. So even the old guys do it sometimes.
