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. Full Member

Rolfo: Keep your knees in order, that's the message! Well, i guess Magnus had to keep talking to pass the time to prevent even more awkward questions to come :)

Rolfo: Aronian the next Ivanchuk? Interesting observation. Time will tell. There are similarities already
   Mar-29-14 Viswanathan Anand (replies)
Rolfo: Congrats old champ!
   Feb-22-14 Veselin Topalov (replies)
Rolfo: And Topalov is about to meet Kramnik twice this year, first encounter is the Candidates in march, next is in Norway Chess Challenge in June
   Feb-06-14 Hikaru Nakamura (replies)
Rolfo: Well, all can be blind. Topalov didn't see mate in two against Kramnik in the WChamp game 2006, and Kramnik didn't see mate in one against the supercomputer in 2006 or was it 2007

Rolfo: Chris321, given that chess has developed vastly both in quantity and quality since Fischer's time, I am afraid Fischer wouldn't stand a chance against the best of today's top players. Fischer's legacy will be there forever, for what he did and for the impact he had on chess ever after

Rolfo: Well put, paulalbert and SirRuthless
   Feb-01-14 Carlsen vs Caruana, 2014 (replies)
Rolfo: Canuana? Manana isn't here yet :)
   Jan-31-14 Carlsen vs Aronian, 2014 (replies)
Rolfo: Carlsen said on Norwegian TV that this game was more "subtil" than yesterday's game
   Jan-31-14 Carlsen vs Gelfand, 2014 (replies)
Rolfo: <Kinghunt: Even after the game, analyzing it with the help of computers and GM commentary, it is difficult to understand where exactly Gelfand went wrong. Truly phenomenal play by Carlsen, well worthy of his first game as King.> And also a comment well worthy a Hunter :)
