Rama
Member since May-29-03 · Last seen Jul-22-18
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.

   Jun-25-18 S Platzack vs J van Baarle, 1967 (replies)
 
Rama: It is an 'epaulette' mate, with the white K flanked by his own men, hemming him in. In 'pure form' the flankers are both Rooks. Cute

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.
 
   Mar-26-18 Sergey Karjakin (replies)
 
Rama: He's got a chance if he can beat Ding Liren on Wednesday, who is the only undefeated player in Berlin.
 
   Mar-25-18 World Championship Candidates (2018) (replies)
 
Rama: I just finished Frank Brady's bio of Fischer. I learned something new -- he was a closet accordianist!
 
   Mar-18-18 Aronian vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
 
Rama: It IS better, maybe. Adios! Levon.
 
   Mar-11-18 Grischuk vs W So, 2018 (replies)
 
Rama: Yeah, I kept waiting for ...Na5 but it never happened. Then ...d5 looked so aggressive and unnecessary.
 
   Mar-10-18 Kramnik vs Grischuk, 2018 (replies)
 
Rama: Channeling Richard Reti with the reinforced fianchetto, and Aron Nimzovitch with explosive centralization 35. Qd4. Very smooth, very sure-footed.
 
   Jan-26-18 I V Kovalenko vs Fressinet, 2016 (replies)
 
Rama: It was tough to see through to the pattern of Pg6 restricting the King and the move Be7 after capturing on c5, winning material at least.
 
   Jan-13-18 Carlsen vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
 
Rama: White has a slight advantage in the isolated a-pawn and the doublet. It is the kind of position he used to press for hours and eventually win.
