Hi. I'm a chess fan, but a fairly weak player (OTB 1300)

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. Of late I've become a fan of Tigran Petrosian.

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

LucB: <The seventh #1 player since 1970 is still clearly #1. For those wondering, Spassky Fischer Karpov Kasparov Kramnik Anand Carlsen > Topalov should be included, no? he was world #1 in '06-07 and later in '08-10

LucB: Obviously a S/W glitch. Notice that it still says "Harika vs Kramnik" on the front page, and that Kramnik won yesterday. So I'm just wondering if the "old template" is being used (dancing rook, etc.), with MC's face in there in the place of Volodya.

LucB: I'm looking at the move order on Carlsen's side... does he often get his bishops out BEFORE his knights?

LucB: Well done Praggu!

LucB: I noticed on Chessbomb that 46..Kf7 is the engine's no.1 choice. I don't think I would have ever considered that move. I would have played 46..f4, then perhaps retreat the King.

LucB: Pragg Na Nan dhaa is his last name. By the way, does anybody know if he's gotten a GM norm thus far? He just recently participated in some open tournament (Sants) and, according to Chessbomb, got a +3.

LucB: I'm mad at Fabiano. He should have let Gary mate him on f1, ala Game of the Century: D Byrne vs Fischer, 1956
   Aug-16-17 St. Louis Rapid & Blitz (Rapid) (2017) (replies)
LucB: <Dr Winston OBoogie> Based on what I see on the FIDE site, Kasparov does not have a rapid rating, only a classical one. I guess he will NOW have a rapid rating. His classical rating should remain unchanged.
