Member since May-31-05 · Last seen Dec-20-11
I have just started studying chess, although I have known the moves for some time.

As of now, my favorite player is Paul Keres. From what I have seen, I also like the games of Spassky, Kholmov, Nezhmetdinov, and Ragozin.

rudysanford: I stumbled across his book on the Nimzo-Indian in a bookstore, and not yet being a Nimzo/QID player, I have let it sit. Several times. At some point, I could see exploring the Nimzo, or at least having one more book to accompany all of those others in my 'chess waiting room'. At
 
   Jan-20-09 Queen's Gambit Declined, Tarrasch (D32) (replies)
 
rudysanford: I have spent a bit of time looking through Tarrasch games and then using the 'find similar games' option. I came across games that even though they looked liked QGD Tarrasch games they were actually listed under ECO D40 for the root of the Semi-Tarrasch, even though what I am ...

rudysanford: Does anyone have an opinion on his book- The Ruy Lopez: Winning Chess with 1. P-K4? Has it aged well? Is it still useful? Is it more of a book for white than black?

rudysanford: It is not just you. Downloading the pgn works though.
 
   May-05-08 Mikhail Chigorin (replies)
 
rudysanford: Are either Bogoljubov's or Santasiere's books on Chigorin worth getting? I saw that they are mentioned earlier in the thread but didn't see much of opinion one way or the other regarding their worth. I would guess that the Khalifman edition would be worthwhile, but I have not ...

rudysanford: Does anyone have any opinion on his book Soviet Chess? I have a bit of Christmas money and am thinking of buying it, but that purchase would use up most of this windfall. If it matters, I am interested in chess history, personalities, and anecdotes, as well as analyzed games.

rudysanford: [originally I was going to paste this in the Rauzer vs Botvinnik, 1933 1933 B72 0-1 page but it is probably better here] I wonder if part of Tarrasch's dogmatism was bred by what he perceived his audience to be. I have gone through the Dover translation of The Game of Chess and ...
 
   Dec-08-06 Reti vs T Gruber, 1923 (replies)
 
rudysanford: These additional moves also appear in Dynamic Chess by R. N. Coles, Dover, 1966.
 
   Nov-27-06 Paul Keres (replies)
 
rudysanford: Today I was googling through newsgroups regarding Keres' style and came across a comment that someone attributed to Botvinnik. Supposedly Botvinnik claimed that ultimate success eluded Keres because his style remained old fashioned. Can anyone explain what Botvinnik meant?

rudysanford: rudysanford: Thanks for the postings to my question. When I don't get Soviet Chess by Soltis for Christmas, I will go out and buy it myself. I stumbled across R. N. Coles Dynamic Chess for under $3.00 in a used book store. I haven't had time to play over the games yet. ...
