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! Full Member

LucB: <dx> I'm not claiming that he MUST be sick; no need to be making me say something I didn't say, but I wonder what the probability is of MC losing 2 games in a row, given his rating in relation to the opponents' rating. Can anybody calculate this?

LucB: By the way, <Richard Taylor>: I don't know if anyone has answered your question on who the 2 commentators are, but they are GMs Viorel Iordachescu (MLD) and the soviet-born Dutch GM Gennady Sosonko.

LucB: <Does anyone have a suggestion of what Carlsen's thinking was for 7. Bd3 ?> I have the same question <independentthinker>.. perhaps this has been discussed in the first few pages of this thread when the move was played.. I for one will take a look..

LucB: <you cannot hit the (empty) bottle on your opponents head when playing on the internet> True enough.. :)

LucB: I tried 25.Bxf7+, 25.Qxe4 and got nowhere. I even tried the game move, 25.Rxg4, and still got nowhere.. Oh well!

LucB: <It's a Kmoch term from 'Pawn Power' I's been years since I read it. I'm sure I'm right. It's sounds right.> Well, I've never read the book, so who am I to argue with Herr Kmoch or Frau Sally? :)

LucB: Wow, I got it!.. 'took me over 5 minutes to work out the variations, but still..
