Rolfo
Member since Aug-24-06 · Last seen Nov-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.

Rolfo: Eggman, john b, as already mentioned it is Nora Torp Bjørnstad from Tromsø. I know her parents. She is very bright and clever

Rolfo: Both players are feeling the pressure I guess. A WC match is different from all other play. Anand is trailing and should be the man to try actively for some surprise. Magnus can stay calm awaiting Anand to overpress. In addition he has one more white to try something on own behalf. ...

Rolfo: < shiraishi: Carlsen is not just better that Anand but probably the best ever. WC is just a formality he must get over with. Dont forget he can draw anyone even while taking a nap.> A little exaggerated, though not much :)

Rolfo: Well seen by <technical draw > more than 10 years ago. My credits. Can''t say I was "clairvoyant" till 2005, but then I was sure :)

Rolfo: It seems that Aronian's way to the Candidates isn't that easy, but I am pretty sure he will make it

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 ...
