I haven't played in tournaments in many years due to my time-demanding job, but I am fairly strong and carefully follow the world chess scene.

maxi: I understand he is a seminal player in Russian chess.
   Jul-01-15 Capablanca - Marshall (1909)
maxi: It makes sense. Marshall knew that if it came to another match against Capa he would almost certainly lose, but this way he could obtain and keep his US championship. Capa wanted to go ahead with his plans towards the ultimate goal of the WChampionship. San Sebastian was a logical and ...
   Jun-27-15 Aronian vs Nakamura, 2015
maxi: His overall approach to chess has developed.
   Jun-26-15 Capablanca vs Tartakower, 1924
maxi: <Howard> After 33...Nf5 34.BxN gxf 35.Kg3 there seems to exist no defense at all. The best is 35...a6. What is remarkable is that as far as I could tell in all variations White wins by infiltrating his King via Kg3-h4-h5. That was completely unexpected to me. As to the options to
   Jun-23-15 Topalov vs Caruana, 2015 (replies)

maxi: <Penguincw> One swallow does not a spring make.
   Jun-20-15 Carlsen vs Topalov, 2015 (replies)

   Jun-20-15 Anand vs Carlsen, 2015 (replies)
maxi: <visayanbraindoctor> To me, one of the most fascinating aspects of chess is play in even positions. Tactics, strategy and the human element all come together. Even bluffing comes into play.
   Jun-18-15 Nakamura vs Caruana, 2015 (replies)
maxi: Very instructive game.
   Jun-15-15 Robert E Byrne vs Fischer, 1963
maxi: I used a couple of computers and a few programs to make more quantitative my ideas: > Byrne's move 15.Qc2 results in evaluations of about -4; > the alternative 15.Rab1 with the continuation 15...Nxf2 results in evaluations of about -1. It seems that White is already lost anyway, ...
