Member since Aug-24-06 · Last seen Oct-25-14
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.

   Oct-25-14 Carlsen-Anand World Championship (2014) (replies)
 
Rolfo: I feel embassed that no Norwegian company would sponsor the match. Explanation is partly in line with what Sokrates said. But also that their sponsor budgets were tied up to other sports and cultural engagements. Norway has traditions in winter sports and water sports, even in ...

Rolfo: No Russians in Tata steel next year, but interesting line up even so with So and Co. I was thinking that relations between the Dutch and the Russians cooled a bit after the downing of the Malayan plane with lots of Dutch lives lost possibly caused by a Russian missile. Who knows

Rolfo: Jambow, good reasoning. As for your view on frogbert, I tend to weigh his constructive contribution as much more important than some of the other things he engaged himself into.He kind of wore himself out. Anyway I believe there are a lot of kibitzers and visitors here that really ...

Rolfo: Magnus is going to the cartoon business :) http://www.nrk.no/kultur/hylles-med...

Rolfo: When comparing, maybe the matchcount ( number of defences) could be one factor in the equation. FIDE's regulations is getting more predictable now hopefully
 
   Sep-19-14 European Club Cup (2014) (replies)
 
Rolfo: We are seeing a change coming with the new generation really knocking hard on the door while Carlsen already walked in. At the same time the veterans are yielding ground but have not surrendered yet
 
   Aug-28-14 M Vachier-Lagrave vs Carlsen, 2014 (replies)
 
Rolfo: Yes Appaz. And some people had forgotten that Carlsen plays any position, they needed a wake up call :)
 
   Aug-26-14 Sinquefield Cup (2014) (replies)
 
Rolfo: It''s obvious that Carlsen and Nakamura have a war on words going on just to spice the interest for their encounters
 
   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
