Just a common patzer OTB rating a tick below the magical 2.000 mark. Best personal game, beating an IM in a tournament game.

Active fav. players.

Aronian

Players I would like to see (more often) at top events: Le Quang Liem. He has all the tools to make it to a very good Top Ten player in my book.

All time favorites: Tal, Kasparov.

Note: although I enjoy Tal and Kasparov my style of play looks more like Kramnik or Karpov playing (on a much , much lower level ofc., what I mean is, my play is more positional than tactical).

As much as I like watching Carlsen as World Champ and potentially gaining a status in chess history similar to Kasparov, I find his play sometimes a bit "dull". (almost) All of his games are high quality, they are just not as exciting to watch in my opinion. It's nice to see how Kramnik reinvented himself and started to play more actively for wins again.

Refused: <SirRuthless: <Refused>Juding by Nakamura's h2h record vs the participants besides carlsen is fabulous so he has just as many chances as the others do. He already got his loss vs carlsen out of the way with black. In reality, I doubt anyone can catch magnus.> And was ...

Refused: <epicchess: 52.Kxh3 falls into a one move mate Rh1++. Seriously, think about it before you say something.> And how do you intend to move the Rook from e2 to h1 in one move?

Refused: Not really paying much attention. Cooking something, and was also looking for some radio stream. (Local Rivals battling relegation, and this year it looks like they will finally drop. Oh, and they are trailing already 0-1, so things started out quite well).

Refused: Actually nice to see GM actually understanding how a website is supposed to be. Ok, personally I would remove that rotten pic (aka graphic suicide) with a meme. But well, I would not be too surprised if he picked up a few ideas from 4chan. To those complaining the site is a bit too ...

Refused: <Petrosianic: Considering that Fischer still considered himself an active player into the 1990's, Karpov and Kasparov should both be considered "players of his time".> That was view held by Fischer only. How many tournaments did he play after he forfeited his title? The only
 
   Apr-15-14 A Stefanova vs Yifan Hou, 2014 (replies)
 
Refused: Nope. recapture with the d pawn and the Bishop on d6 is protected by the Queen. And as a bonus, it looks like black has solved all her opening problems.
 
   Apr-13-14 Grischuk vs A Shomoev, 2014 (replies)
 
Refused: d5-d4 is in a way a very logical continuation. That pawn was obstructing black's Bishop, so Shomoev in a desperate attempt to gain some breathing room for his pieces and maybe in the distant future active play decided to sacrifice that obstacle. The drawback? It was simply not ...
