CRO stends for Croatia and 7+7+7 are winning cards.


Chess has all the qualities of a complex system:

1) the abundance of elements,

2) hierarchy,

3) there is a so-called "chaos zone" where it is impossible, in principle, to predict the direction that the system would develop in certain positions. (These are positions in which human intuition is the best recipe).


ĄAs a rule, typical middlegame positions are closely associated with a specific opening variation, so that to study them is to study the opening at the same time.

The best method of studying typical middlegame positions is to select appropriate games and analyse the plans (the tactical and strategic precepts and ideas) employed in them.ď (Mark Dvoretsky)

cro777: <theBlacksmith: Based on those script, how do you compare Lotis K. and Paul T.?> As far as Lotis is concerned, only time will tell. Sometimes you will only know the outcome after time has passed. On the other hand, Paul's behavior is unacceptable.

cro777: Arkadij Naiditsch: "Psychologically I canít imagine Hammerís situation. How to play against your boss? Against somebody who you helped become World Champion, accompanied to so many events and who you see is having a horrible event." Does Hammer in Norwegian mean the same as the ...

cro777: GM Alejandro Ramirez: "It's a hard game to explain, as despite the massive ratings from both players, the game was certainly not of the highest quality. Caruana had a good position from the opening, but he had to play actively to try to pressure his opponent. He was even winning at ...

cro777: In Catalan endgames White can hang on to a slight advantage for a long time. Black has no counterplay and has to defend very precisely to obtain the draw. But a tough and passive defence is something Topalov doesn't like. He tried to create counterplay but it had the reverse effect. ...

cro777: A "don't-try-this-at-home" opening. In a Semi-Slav Moscow Variation Carlsen tried to surprise Maxime by playing a very rare and very risky line (7...Ne4). Maxime chose the most principled continuation, which involved a double pawn sacrifice. 1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 e6 3. Nf3 d5 4. Nc3 c6 5.
