papynchase: I learned how to play chess at 10 and one of the first books I had was his small booklet. It meant more to me than the rest of the thick books I had as, despite being meant for beginners, it had a lot of useful and practical advice, and his 5 list of questions to ask yourself ...

papynchase: In the chessbase website: Anand now needs just one draw <to keep his title>. At least we know Chessbase's stand.

papynchase: Actually it's supposed to be just Mas Hafizulhelmi. A friend of mine who used to be his classmate told me that Agus is the name of his father. It's quite common in Malaysia to write their father's name at the back. But it's always perceived as their surnames thus the "moniker". ...

papynchase: He just drew with Black against Kamsky in 83 moves. A chessbase caption of the picture of them playing against each other, "Kamsky managing just a draw...", sounds very belittling.
 
   Nov-25-07 Tartakower vs Mieses, 1925 (replies)
 
papynchase: After Black's 9th move, Emanuel Lasker comments: "B-kt 2 is likewise of no avail. The points QB2 and K4 are weak, P-KR4-KR5 threatens also, the KP cannot be held in the long run. White has many pieces in play, Black none, at these odds everyone would like to play gambits."

papynchase: Yea, I came here too to confirm that it was Caruano. Pretty sneaky of the guys in chessbase to edit the picture and to associate him with old Pal Benko to give readers the impression that he's ooold... By the way, the beautiful curly hair gave it away.

papynchase: Does it matter if he's a muslim? Do you want to start discrediting his games by slurring the pieces he sacrificed with "suicide bombers"?
 
   Aug-13-07 Nazreen Bakri Anas
 
papynchase: In the recently concluded World U16 Olympiad, he scored 85% (8.5/10), and was second best player on board one behind the Philippines IM Wesley So (9.5/10).
 
   Jul-13-07 Emanuel Lasker (replies)
 
papynchase: It was one of the positions given in Lev Alburt's Chess Training Pocket Book: 300 Most Important Chess Positions and Ideas. I always wondered why it never made it into Dr Lasker's Manual of Chess under the heading of 'interference'. Maybe it's because of the amount of 'other' ...
