Greetings from Key West FL USA.

I'm a Vishy fan. In 1985 I was in Madras, India on a field project and played lots of chess at the Tal CC. I also had the opportunity to play at the V.K. Mills Open in Palni, won by 15 year old Vishy Anand. Afterwards Vishy and his friend Manuel Aron (sp?) went over their games in my dorm room and then we played some speed. I took a snapshot. They were just a couple of kids, I was the bigshot visiting scientist. :)

Best published rating USCF 1954 in 1987, highest rated victim 2150, call myself an Expert.

Rama: Interesting. Would you play Re2 or Rd8? The IQP is a weakness if immobilized.
 
   Dec-07-18 E Korchmar vs E Poliak, 1937 (replies)
 
Rama: I tried Nxf6+ and Qxd6 to get to the back rank but that way didn't work. White's Nb3! was much superior.
 
   Nov-28-18 Carlsen vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
 
Rama: Nf3+ and Qa8+ and black can resign with a clear conscience.

Rama: PJ, I always had good luck with the French, as you say, in control of the game.

Rama: Hah! I just read an article on ChessBase about betting. Seems a betting site is a co-sponsor of the match. You can even bet on specific moves. The worry is that players will be betting, or by proxy.

Rama: 13. ...d5. Feeling lucky?
 
   Nov-12-18 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
 
Rama: Sparring, circling, probing, jabbing.
 
   Aug-16-18 S Platzack vs J van Baarle, 1967 (replies)
 
Rama: An "Epaulette Mate" delivered by the B, nice.
 
   May-01-18 US Championship (2018) (replies)
 
Rama: What we need are cheerleaders like the Dallas Cowboys. THAT would get the attention of the networks. :)
 
   Mar-27-18 Grischuk vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
 
Rama: So many moves, so little time.
