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: Qg7 Rxg7 Ra8+ (or Rd8+ doesn't matter) Rg8 Rxg8+ Kxg8 Rd8#. Ofc Black prolong the inevitable by throwing in Qb8 after Ra8+, but that doesn't change the big picture.

Refused: <PinnedPiece: <R: It's funny to see, how short Short accuses Kirsan (and rightly so) of buying votes, while Kaparov is doing the same thing.> Part of the strategy to neutralize Ilyumzhinov's strategies? Fight fire with fire? Four knights defense?> I am not saying Kirsan ...

   Jul-24-14 Dortmund Sparkassen Chess Meeting (2014) (replies)
 
Refused: Anyway, this was another terrible/dreadful tournament for Kramnik. Dortmund used to be his living room (chesswise) and he ends up -2 with no wins. And it's not like the field was exceptionally strong. I think the curtain starts to call for Kramnik and it's time for one last bow.
 
   Jul-04-14 5th Danzhou Tournament (2014) (replies)
 
Refused: <csmath: What a lousy tournament for Wei Yi.> Yep. Happens. He looked quite solid until he finished with his losses in the closing rounds. My guess is, it's time for him to opt for different openings. The Giucco is a fine opening on junior levels, but now it's time to grow up.

Refused: <Magnus told me he could not make the World Cup Finals and has sold me his four cup final tickets for 4,000. They arrived today. Four pieces of cardboard cut out from a cornflake packet, written on the back in red crayon the words 'A Kup Finel Tiket' They look a bit dodgy to me,
