Member since Aug-24-06 · Last seen Aug-22-14
I am far more a chess lover than chess player. The youngsters are too quick for me. I will mention three names which contributes to my chess interest. My first great favourite player was Bobby Fischer, I read all I could find in the newspapers during the 1972 World Championship match against Spasskij. Then I followed Simen Agdesteins nice performance in the eighties and nineties. My last favourite is the young and great Magnus Carlsen. I do all I can to follow his play live on internet. Great entertainment which really make me relax from all other burden and responsibility. I have read a lot of important chess history and bio of many great players. I follow kibitzing a lot, even though I seldom participate myself. I have serious respect for all the knowledge I see demonstrated in the kibitzing sessions, even so I think some hotties could put a little restraint on themselves. Anyway I love it because people engage in something important for themselves and their chess friends. I live in Nothern Norway where people is nice, summer is light and winter is dark.

   Aug-22-14 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
 
Rolfo: Absentee, See HeMateMe's post on the upcoming Grand Prix's. And also his answer to team Carlsen on Sotchi.
 
   Aug-07-14 Garry Kasparov (replies)
 
Rolfo: John barleycorn, as said I don't consider big K to be free of faults, still I prefer him to Kirsan. He is a rational man, important as I see it.
 
   Aug-04-14 Carlsen vs N Djukic, 2014 (replies)
 
Rolfo: < But it's the 10 % extra, Carlsen adds to the quality of the moves that makes come out the winner.> And he sees a little thing here and there that his opponents don't see till it's too late
 
   Aug-02-14 Chess Olympiad (2014) (replies)
 
Rolfo: < What's with these Ukrainian players switching federations? Better stipends?> As for Karjakin he explained it with his desire to become World Champ as I remember. All better in Russia compared to Ukraine, trainers, systems, money etc.
 
   Jul-20-14 Dortmund Sparkassen Chess Meeting (2014) (replies)
 
Rolfo: KKderek, Magnus will get him to the ropes again. I really believe Anand, Kramnik, topalov, Gelfand, Shirov, Ivanchuk, Adams etc have to see a new generation come by
 
   Jul-13-14 Wesley So (replies)
 
Rolfo: Wesley So got a big scalp today or was it yesterday? Well done anyway
 
   Jun-29-14 Hikaru Nakamura (replies)
 
Rolfo: To conclude, it's more likely than not that Ian N was one of Carlsen's stay behind men :) As for computer use in chess today nothing to disagree upon. As said, I like to think that the human factor in man to man games/ matches still is the most important factor
 
   Jun-23-14 FIDE World Blitz Championship (2014) (replies)
 
Rolfo: Schweigzwang, thanks for the effort. Interesting
 
   Jun-19-14 FIDE World Rapid Championship (2014) (replies)
 
Rolfo: Lol perfidious, but I won't interfere to close on him or his family. He was quite unpleasant on both Carlsen and Nakamura and deserved a wake up call. Anyway I hope he himself has a pleasant girlfriend / wife if we get a picture or not
 
   Jun-14-14 Norway Chess Tournament (2014) (replies)
 
Rolfo: <..But the good news in that in one month he will be very ok and totally ready for Olympiad. He also joked that Armenian team is always super. When asked about competitors he said; well russians may pose little problems:) but it is inessential:)> The Armenian team is very sharp ...
