Dutch, not a very active player, interested in the history of chess, especially Russian/Soviet.

   May-27-06 37th Chess Olympiad (2006) (replies)
pim: Perhaps I'm biased but I think that Nijboer has a more pleasant position, while van Wely should be able to draw. Small victory for the Dutch perhaps?
   Jan-09-06 Corus (2006) (replies)
pim: This is my first try ever at predicting anything, so without too much faith: 1. Topalov 2. Anand 3. Ivanchuk 4. Kamsky 5. Aronian 6. Leko 7. Gelfand 8. Karjakin 9. Van Wely 10. Bacrot 11. Adams 12. Mamedyarov 13. Sokolov 14. Tiviakov
   Feb-20-05 Szabo vs V Mikenas, 1939 (replies)
pim: <Eatman>Szabo writes: "Zek's theoretical summing up of the 5..Bb4 variation was published in the Soviet press at just about that time, and Mikenas, a Lithuanian with perfect mastery of the Russian language, very likely knew the article's contents. (...) When we analysed the game ...
   Dec-29-04 Pachman vs Fischer, 1966 (replies)
pim: Honza Cervenka: I agree that it is much too early to resign here, although the opposite colored bishops may not be all that relevant with the rooks still on board (the pawn on c5 is perhaps more important for the draw). Anyway I find Fischer's last move (Rb8) incomprehensible. What's ...
   Dec-27-04 Romanishin vs Timman, 1985
pim: DocNZ wrote: But what about 21. Ng5 (so much for g5) hxg5 22. Bxe4 Nxe4 23. Qxe4. Good suggestion DocNZ! I don't know whether black's position is really bad after the line you give. But perhaps there is an alternative: 22. .. Nd4 instead of Nxe4. It looks weird, but 23. Bxa8 Nxe2+ seems
   Dec-25-04 Anderssen vs Steinitz, 1866 (replies)
pim: DrunknightII and Aulero: I noticed that Gottschall in his biography of Anderssen gives 31 Qh4-h7 (instead of Qh4-h2). This makes a big difference because then after 35 Bxg1 Bh3+ 36 Kf2 would be possible. Gottschall writes about 35 dxc5: "Incomprehensible 35 Bxg1 was the only possible ...
   Dec-21-04 Smyslov vs J H Donner, 1967 (replies)
pim: Donner wrote about this game: "When I awake suddenly [verschrikt] , I know immediately that I have to play against Smyslov, and I see it is already a quarter to four. 'Russians' are difficult for me, I cannot understand why, but I have never won from one of them yet, and Smyslov for me ...
   Aug-13-04 Wade vs Petrosian, 1954
pim: Who, I am not sure, but just to start: I think that white's problem is that he has no useful moves anymore. The bishop has to cover g4 and cannot go to d1 because that would allow Qg1, and the queen has to guard c3 and e3. After Kh3 the black queen enters with Qf2. So the only ...
   Aug-09-04 Petrosian vs Korchnoi, 1971 (replies)
pim: I'm not a 100% sure about the draw, given the bishop pair and black's blacksquared pawns but anyway it seems to early to resign. More important than my opinion about this endgame is that I haven't been able to find this game, neither in their candidates match, nor in the Moscow ...
   Jun-07-04 Ulf Andersson (replies)
pim: I once heard that Andersson published a book with some of his best games (maybe early 80s?), but I have never been able to locate it. Does anyone know? I kind of like the way he plays the sicilian.
