"You know, when you achieve something in Norway, well, you're not supposed to get above yourself. This is especially big in my country, that you- how do I explain this? - that you're not supposed to think you're better than anyone else only because you had success in some field, and you will always find someone ready to point this out to you in Norway." - GM Magnus Carlsen

"Critics are men who watch a battle from a high place, then come down and shoot the survivors." - Ernest Hemingway

"When you have confidence, it is not that everything you do is 'right,' it is that you have less self doubts because you are inspired." - GM Dmitry Gurevich

parmetd: Anyone know cause of death? I have had a real hard time processing this... The other evening I had dinner with a close family friend who is 90. In the middle of dinner, she went on a tangent and said, "If I died, how would you know?" In truth, I care for this woman a lot and the ...

parmetd: Yes Izoria was quite strange especially considering that his games with Caruana and Shankland were blunderfests. Nevertheless, had Gata Kamsky accepted his invitation then Izoria wouldn't have been here at all.

  cro777: Occasionaly he used to play 1.b3.

I'm considering Black's most ambitious plan:

1. b3 e5 2. Bb2 Nc6 3. e3 d5 4. Bb5 Bd6

The following game is considered to be the model game for this line:

[Event "9th UIL&UL GM"]
[Site "Dahka BAN"]
[Date "2009.08.23"]
[White "Ismagambetov, Anuar"]
[Black "Lahiri, Atanu"]

1. b3 e5 2. Bb2 Nc6 3. e3 d5 4. Bb5 Bd6 5. f4 Qh4+ 6. g3 Qe7 7. Nf3 f6 8. Nc3 Be6 9. Qe2 a6 10. Bxc6+ bxc6 11. O-O-O Nh6 12. Na4 e4 13. Nd4 Bg4 14. Qf1 Bxd1 15. Qxd1 c5 16. Ne2 O-O 17. h3 c4 18. Kb1 Ba3 19. Bc3 Rab8 20. g4 c5 21. Rg1 Nf7 22. g5 fxg5 23. h4 Qd7 24. hxg5 Nd6 25. Ka1 Nf5 26. Be5 Rb7 27. Nec3 cxb3 28. cxb3 Rc8 29. Nb1 Bb4 30. a3 Ba5 31. Qc2 c4 32. b4 Bc7 33. Bb2 Bd6 34.

  parmetd: Hi Peter,
I am still in Milwaukee. Things are well. Give me a call somdtime and let's catch up! I would love to do dinner sometime if we can work it out.
Oct-03-13  stunningmove: I just checked my forum and saw your congrats on my daughter's wedding. THANKS. Miss your insight on the GMSW game.

  LucB: Hi. I have a question about an old book that I used to own and that I gave away (foolishly).

I don't know if it was Reinfeld or Chernev, but the book was essentially a primer on the QGD. I really liked it but I can't remember the title or the author. I think it also might have focused on the Stonewall Attack (though of that I'm less sure..).

Would you have any idea what this book might be? Anybody? I'd like to re-purchase it on line if possible. It might be so old that Google books might have it..


Premium Chessgames Member
  parmetd: not sure LucB. sorry.
Premium Chessgames Member
  LucB: Ok, no problems; if you want I can let you know if I ever find it.
Premium Chessgames Member
  parmetd: Sure, if I figure it out I will let you know.

  cro777: Hi <parmetd>. It seems that Tansel Turgut is playing in the ongoig Saint Louis Open.

Premium Chessgames Member
  parmetd: Yea, Tansel plays a fair amount with his son. They also only live about an hour from St. Louis.
Premium Chessgames Member
  cro777: The new Chessgames Challenge is about to start. GM Naiditsch seems a strong opponent. I see that you have registered.
Premium Chessgames Member
  parmetd: Yes, my friend I have. :)
Premium Chessgames Member
  cro777: After 1...e5, the Berlin endgame is an option. In reply to 9.Nc3, GMNA would probably select between the solid 9...Ke8 and 9...Bd7 he recently opted for. White main options are 10.h3 and 10.Rd1. What strategy would you suggest for White?
Premium Chessgames Member
  parmetd: Nothing left for me to contribute to the opening phase of the game.
Premium Chessgames Member
  cro777: I think your elaboration of Kramnik's idea you mentioned could be very helpful. I was also expecting the Berlin endgame, but in the team vote chess you cannot always expect rational decisions.
Premium Chessgames Member
  cro777: <parmetd: What is livebook?>

The <LiveBook> is cloud opening book that everyone can access or contribute to. It is one of the technologies ChessBase has introduced in the last years. (Accessible via ChessBase or Fritz interface. Most recent versions are ChessBase 13 and Fritz 14).

  plang: I notice you mention being interested in chess books.

I have Bernard Caffeerty's book on the 1968 Candidate Matches. Apparently, he wrote one on the 1965 matches as well but I have been unable to find a copy. It has been out of print for years. Have you ever seen a copy?

Premium Chessgames Member
  parmetd: I have not. :( I also have the 68.
Premium Chessgames Member
  plang: thanks
Mar-07-15  FSR: <LucB> Don't know if this is what you had in mind, but two old but good general books on the Queen's Gambit are <Queen's Gambit Declined> by Sergiu Samarian (1975) and <Queen's Gambit> by Ludek Pachman (1964).
Mar-07-15  FSR: <parmetd> Do you have DeLucia's book <A Few Old Friends>? Maybe the most gorgeous chess book ever.
Mar-08-15  FSR: <LucB> On further reflection I realize that I was thinking of <Play the Queen's Gambit> by Drazen Marovic, not the Samarian book. The Samarian book is OK, but as I recall about half of it is on the Tarrasch Variation (1.d4 d5 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3 c5). The Marovic book covers more territory.

  wordfunph: <parmetd> happy birthday!

Wordfunph, thanks!
Mar-11-15  FSR: <parmetd> You'll have to come over and check out my copy sometime. An amazing book.
