Hi! I am a 36 year old chess player from Michigan, USA. I am an average player (USCF 1600-1700). I like chess, guitar, reading, and many other things.

<Until now, you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete. (John 16:24)> :)

micartouse: I gotta admit, I can't hang haha! This place gets way too hardcore for me, mad respect to those of you with the gut to truck through it and keep on speaking your minds. I feel like Rogoff page has gradually morphed from Anand-Gelfand 2012 vibe to Kramnik-Topalov 2006 vibe - I'm ...

micartouse: <When you don't know what to play, wait for an idea to come into your opponent's mind. You may be sure that idea will be wrong> I really enjoyed this one. Wouldn't be at all out of place in a modern chess book!

   Dec-19-14 Wesley So (replies)
micartouse: <bulibug: <We did everything we could to help Wesley reach the top 10 in the world, break the 2760 mark, win Millionaire Chess, along with many big tournaments in the past 2 years. After nearly 2.5 years of training at SPICE, now is the time for him to show what he is made ...
   Dec-14-14 London Chess Classic (2014) (replies)
micartouse: <plang: There is an article about Caruana in todays New York Times Style section> Just read it, I didn't really like it for several reasons. It seemed rather forced. I didn't understand why Caruana was hyped as another Fischer, why Nakamura wasn't mentioned, forced ...
   Dec-09-14 Kramnik vs Nakamura, 2014 (replies)
micartouse: <notyetagm: But the really nice move by Kramnik is the genius 13 ... ♕d8-f6? 14 ♘b1-c3!!.> You're right, that's an unusual tactic - Kramnik always finds the strange combinations! It's interesting that Nakamura judged the lesser of evils at that point to be ...
   Dec-04-14 Qatar Masters (2014) (replies)
micartouse: <bugabay> The current goldfish/barracuda research states that elite players jeopardize their ratings by playing in the opens. On the contrary, in this event Kramnik and Giri clobbered a bunch of low rated barracudas, stole rating points from them, and will take now those ...

micartouse: He's been with us for almost 8 years, it was always fun to read his comments. I don't blame the guy for leaving, the internet has become much trollier in those years. It's less drama to just post anonymously.
   Nov-28-14 Carlsen - Anand World Championship (2014) (replies)
micartouse: <siamesedream> Interesting! I've really come to like Caruana but doubt I'd want him to win a WC match given these answers. I'm a stodgy traditionalist - I want a champion who will support a classical WC match with qualifiers for a challenger. The nice thing is the champion ...

micartouse: <al wazir> Yes, well done. I was picturing things like kellmano's post and setting up various contraptions with weights or water but just couldn't make progress. <OCF> Agree, I enjoy reading a diverse puzzle set from many posters, even if I only dip my toes in the ...
