I'm a Dane from Copenhagen. Born 1947. Have played since 1963, albeit not actively since 1974 when I had about 2150 in rating. Follow the chess world closely, but I do have a passion for chess history. Retired (2014) from my job as a publisher on art books. Full Member

   Mar-20-18 World Championship Candidates (2018) (replies)
Sokrates: Thanks, <denopac>, now it makes more sense to me. I couldn't really imagine T S Eliot saying this :-)
   Mar-15-18 Kramnik vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
Sokrates: Thanks for the link <FSR>. Great unbiased analysis and explanations by Svidler. This was indeed a fantastic game, rich of turning moments, as he expresses.
   Feb-23-18 Aeroflot Open (2018) (replies)
Sokrates: Thanks, <morfishine>, much appreciated and ... ditto! I like your posts very much. The dichotomic period with the FIDE champions in parallel to Kasparov's arrangements won't earn much credit in chess history. Khalifman is, of course, a great player, and he got the title fair ...

Sokrates: <HeMateMe: In the above photo they almost look like twin brothers.> LOL. Brothers of Haut Coiffure. Maxim's hair is very brown.
   Jan-26-18 Caruana vs A Giri, 2018 (replies)
Sokrates: Caruana trying to squeeze something out of this, but IMO it's a clear draw. Why not 42.-Nb4 now asking white what to do with the queens?
   Jan-24-18 Carlsen vs W So, 2018 (replies)
Sokrates: Masterful endgame conducting by the world champion. A rare setup which requiered the utmost precision.
   Jan-23-18 Tradewise Gibraltar (2018) (replies)
Sokrates: Three players of the elite and then a ladder down to the next level. Hopefully, great and entertaining games are ahead. Both Nakamura, Aronian and MVL must be motivated to show their best. They are sort of missed in Wijk an Zee.
   Jan-23-18 Anand vs Carlsen, 2018
Sokrates: <An Englishman: Good Morning: And a good old-fashioned Breyer Variation. ...> Yes, I almost became nostalgic watching this Spassky weapon from the past. Also in the past I played it a couple of times and although the N manoeuvre seems strange and troublesome it makes good ...
