Ybrevo
Member since Dec-03-05 · Last seen Sep-19-10
Live in Copenhagen, Denmark. Best rating around 1900 - but forgot how to play since then ;-) Favorite players: Bent Larsen (surprise!), Anand, Bronstein - and the little fellow at the café who canīt beat me. Favorite openings: Bird, Reti, Caro Kann, Dutch. And by the way, WC Fields preferred golf although he admitted: "I donīt even know which end of the caddie you use..."

   Aug-18-09 Bacrot vs Leko, 2007
 
Ybrevo: After 3.f4 this looks more like a Birdīs Opening. A brave choice by Bacrot against a solid player like Leko, but he was totally outplayed. After 9. - d4, I donīt like the White position at all.

Ybrevo: Now comes the doubling of black Rooks in the g-file. Further pressure - and fun!
 
   May-19-09 Topalov vs Carlsen, 2009 (replies)
 
Ybrevo: Smells like a draw now - good game though.
 
   Apr-28-09 Kamsky vs Aronian, 2009 (replies)
 
Ybrevo: A very unusual and unbalanced KIA. I donīt remember to have seen the Nf3 to continue wandering to d2 (in move 6!). Maybe Kamsky should have played on for a little longer? Interesting and inspired game nevertheless.
 
   Apr-22-09 J Peters vs Blatny, 2003
 
Ybrevo: <jackpawn> Actually this is not an Owens Defence but a very typical - and strong - example of the "Hippo" opening, which again is in the family of the Hedgehog. Typical setup: Pawns on a6, b6, d6, e6, g6 and h6. Bishops on b7 and g7. Knights on d7 and e7 - and when the time is ...
 
   Mar-24-09 J Francisco vs J Prata, 2001
 
Ybrevo: 6. c3 seems very passive. In his book on the Veresov Nigel Davies suggests 6. Qd2 with the idea of Nge2 and 0-0-0 - or alternatively playing the pawn to c4. If you are fond of moves like e3 and c3, you should play The Colle, not The Veresov!
 
   Mar-07-09 L Dominguez vs Ivanchuk, 2009 (replies)
 
Ybrevo: Hello everyone! Lets get a good fight on this last day. I have a feeling Ivanchuk could end up as # one in this tournament - even playing Black today. But that is just a "gut feeling" ...
 
   Mar-05-09 Carlsen vs Grischuk, 2009 (replies)
 
Ybrevo: <MaxxLange> Right! So I always prefer to play opening lines that I know - but could be dubious - to openings that has a high percentage of wins, but I have no idea how you get there. Okay, maybe because I grew up with the Bent Larsen kind of approach.
 
   Mar-03-09 Grischuk vs Radjabov, 2009 (replies)
 
Ybrevo: <jeremy24> I had about the same thoughts, but I think White should get those awkward pawns on the Q-side rolling as soon as possible too. Otherwise the Ra4 seems more or less out of play.
 
   Mar-02-09 Radjabov vs Aronian, 2009 (replies)
 
Ybrevo: Very entertaining game between two of my favorite players! But is this really a "Kings Indian Attack" opening? 5. d4 seems very unusual for KIA theory - normally that pawn stands on d3 to support a coming pawn move to e4 attacking the center.
