PVS
Member since Nov-12-02 · Last seen Nov-12-04
I started playing and following chess in 1965.

I am a philosopher and logician living the Pacific Northwest region of the United States.

My favourite players are Bronstein, Capablanca, Fischer, Larsen, Morphy, Spassky and Tal.

My favourite chess books are: My 60 Memorable Games (Fischer; descriptive notation edition), 50 Udvalgte Partier (Larsen), and The Life and Games of Mikhail Tal.

PVS: It is not exactly for the World Championship, is it? It is dubious as to whether or not Leko belongs in the final four. Kasimdzhanov is a FIDE joke in typical poor taste. Where is Anand?
 
   Feb-15-04 Old Indian, Ukrainian Variation, 4.Nf3 (A54) (replies)
 
PVS: Bronstein played the black side of this opening for over fifty years and posted a plus score.

PVS: I had a book of his called Black is OK, about opening with black.

PVS: Hastings has a singularly unimpressive field.
 
   Dec-28-03 Vladimir Kramnik (replies)
 
PVS: It has been over ten years since a FIDE cycle produced an official challenger to meet an undisputed champion. It seems unification is getting further away rather than closer.

PVS: Is there a cross table for this event?

PVS: <the press and the fans would ignore rapid, blindfold, etc., like they used to.> Unhappily it is the trend. Organizers are offering big prizes for such events. The MTV generation seems to prefer the faster time controls. One minute chess is the big thing on the ICC.
 
   Oct-26-03 Spassky vs Fischer, 1966 (replies)
 
PVS: This is a much discussed game. The consensus is that 33...Rxf1+ was the losing move. I have always considered that Spassky's fine moves, such as 20. d5 did more to win it than Fischer did to lose it. He is supposed to have good drawing chances after 33...bxc5. As is well known, the ...

PVS: The winners of the first two interzonal tournaments, the first three for that matter.

PVS: The official titles were created by FIDE in 1950. I agree they have been diluted to the point of the absurd.
