Hi. I'm a chess fan, but a fairly weak player (OTB 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. 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: <Sokrates> <But I also have much sympathy for the gentle Indian. 49 = "Old man"? After all...> It's all in jest of course. I'm 60 myself, so Anand could be my kid brother, and I myself do not feel that I'm old.

LucB: <Penguicw:> <But a third queen for each side? Turn the rook upside-down?> In the US, yes (I think it's a USCF allowance), or just stop the clock and ask the arbiter for another Queen.

LucB: Hi <Chancho>. Do you mean 'put together' or each individually? Either way, it IS an impressive achievement! Well done, WC Carlsen!
   Nov-28-18 Carlsen - Caruana World Championship Match (2018) (replies)
LucB: Perhaps Caruana had an off-day at the office today, but because of the difference between the results of the classical and rapid parts of the match, I'm beginning to lean towards shortening the length of each classical game, and playing more games (16) with less rest days during the ...

LucB: So far in this match it's as if you're better off having the black pieces.
