I am FIDE rated 1526. My USCF provisional rating after 5 matches is 1808. I got my FIDE rating some time ago and haven't played for a while so its a bit low.... My favourite players are :
Garry Kasparov : For his risky and attacking play and at the same time his good handling of positional positions. If the rated players at that time were closer rated to him he would have definitely broken the 3000 rating barrier. A legend, and he will always remain one. He was a fighter, and it worked.

Bobby Fischer : Well, what can i say about his play! Just look at the friggin game of the century- Awesome! Unfortunately he was a little eccentric or i daresay he was almost as good as Kasparov. I think he was way ahead of his time and people didn't understand the imporatance of his ideas to commercialise chess. He was the best figher in chess i daresay.

Magnus Carlsen: I love his risky and attacking play, he goes for the win most of the time. A young and rising star, and he is really talented.

I love attacking and risky play and believe you cannot proceed without taking risks. I seriously HATE the grandmasters nowadays who just draw draw draw. Come on man, why insult your own abilities.....

   May-23-11 World Championship Candidates Final (2011) (replies)
 
eightsquare: Oh boy FIDE really didn't want this. I think they should have had at least 6 matches in the quarter and semi-finals and at least 8 matches in the finals with the Sofia rules enforced or something like a maximum of 3 draw offers per player in the whole match. At least we will ...

   May-18-11 S Johnston vs Marshall, 1899 (replies)
 
eightsquare: I got the solution in about 5-10 minutes. First i ruled out hxg3, the obvious capture cause its aiming at the king. I knew it had to be a double check move or at least a knight move, but Nf6 didn't produce any results. Then i came up with Ne7+ folled by Ng6! the descisive ...
 
   May-18-11 World Championship Candidates (2011) (replies)
 
eightsquare: This in my opinion is going to be a joke World Championship unless both these players ( whoever wins ) prepares really really hard to face Anand. I personally am backing Gelfand to win the Candidates because at least he playes for the win sometimes in classical games. And lets ...

eightsquare: I saw Black's win and was thinking of a way to STOP it because i thought it was White to play ! :( AFter a long long think and after analysing moves such as Qxh5 i finally gave up and saw the solution just to see that it was Black to play! Too bad, but a nice puzzle for Tuesday.

eightsquare: Awesome. There are so many beauties in the fried liver attack. And after the game the oppent sees one word in front of him next to the result on the scoresheet : Fried.
