"<<<<The moment you stop making progress, there are others catching up, because people are learning from you. You cannot rely on the same technique to win, so you always have to be creative. I was always trying to improve things, looking for the options with computers with my coaches. I was not just preparing for a specific game, but conceptually, how to move the game forward.-Garry Kasparov(south american TV interview 2011)>>>> Positionalgenius<1854>-Plot24<1770> QA corr 2011- 1. e4 e5 2.

Rd1 1-0 <<"His real, incomparable gifts first began to make themselves known at the time of St. Petersburg, 1914, when I too came to know him personally. Neither before nor afterwards have I seen – and I cannot imagine as well – such a flabbergasting quickness of chess comprehension as that possessed by the Capablanca of that epoch. Enough to say that he gave all the St. Petersburg masters the odds of 5–1 in quick games – and won! With all this he was always good-humoured, the darling of the ladies, and enjoyed wonderful good health – really a dazzling appearance. That he came second to Lasker must be entirely ascribed to his youthful levity – he was already playing as well as Lasker.">> -Alexander alekhine on jose capablanca after st petersburg 1914

Greatest player ever? Jose capablanca.

QA tour Winners:Tour 1: <Tpstar> and <Robin01> with 7/9. Tour 2:started june 29,2008; ended june 2009.
winners <Quylthulg> and <scorpion queen>. Tour 3: Arsen387

Let us say that a game may be continued in two ways: one of them is a beautiful tactical blow that gives rise to variations that don't yield to precise calculations; the other is clear positional pressure that leads to an endgame with microscopic chances of victory. I would choose the latter without thinking twice. If the opponent offers keen play I don't object; but in such cases I get less satisfaction, even if I win, than from a game conducted according to all the rules of strategy with its ruthless logic. – Anatoly Karpov

Clear winner in all categories in <lostemperor>'s Linares 2009 final standings prediction contest

<<<"Winner: <positionalgenius>!! The only one who predicted a first place for Grischuk. Like in Corus 2007 he was the predictional genius:)

We have three runner-ups with the silver. <chessmoron>, <EvigOptimist> and <where is my mind> (?)!!

Maximum score: 38

<babak zhamat> 65 <ahmadov>59 <Frankly I thought that Kramnik would use some super natural powers to scramble Topalov's mind.> - PeerGynt on 9/28/06

<Topalov is clearly outplaying Kramnik, except for his bad moves, and not including Kramnik's good moves.> -zaltar during game 12 of the kramnik-topalov match). <<<<Capabal: <JoergWalter> Following your suggestion, I’ve visited the <I play the Fred> page where I saw matov’s status as the most rabid and vitriolic of Kasparov’s mastiffs on this site. Unlike Lamont, who limits his monotonous chants to a single shrine (the Fischer page), matov seems to take a proactive approach and scans foreign territories, looking for hints of insufficient reverence toward GK anywhere he can find them. I’ve notice he often forgets what his own arguments are, and has a habit of distorting things in a rather shameless manner, and burst into insults if persistently contradicted. >>>>

   Dec-05-17 Carlsen - Karjakin World Championship (2016)
positionalgenius: <<IMO the mid 1990s probably was the strongest era of chess. Karpov was already declining but still playing at a level that could still get him to be Challenger in today's era. Kasparov was at this prime. Anand was at his early peak, and Kramnik was on the way up. So ...

positionalgenius: <<I have the impression that the sponsor has always chosen from among the highest rated players of its own country. If this applies, then the race for the wild card would have been between Kramnik and Grischuk.>> That's an interesting point. This hypothetically ...

positionalgenius: Bullet games are going better for Grischuk, but it's still impressive just how strong Carlsen is at all time controls.

positionalgenius: << In fact I wouldn't have imagined ANYBODY could be that much better than Ding. Quite possible his play went downhill at a certain point but Carlsen just seems to play on a higher level. Quicker, deeper, physically and mentally stronger.>> It's almost like Ding

   Nov-12-17 Novgorod (1996)
positionalgenius: Pretty incredible a tournament of this magnitude doesn't have a single kibitz. Some early success for Topalov, one of his better tournament wins. It's also noteworthy for how strong polgar performed.
