My life followed a random walk from various cities and countries.

I played most of my chess at school and uni, but that was a long time ago and it was only an occasional thing since then. Since I found the chess sites I started playing again, on the internet and also OTB.

Nice to have met fellow enthusiasts and nice to be playing again.

Hard to pick a favourite opening - maybe Najdorf for the fabulous richness of the variation .... or perhaps because it's the natural choice of the chess "streetfighter". Easy to pick a favourite player - the one and only Bobby Fischer.

scormus: nice puzzle and great vision by Siles. Once you've seen the Q-sac it's not difficult to get up to move 32 but then the way diverges. I went with the game line which looked the most likely, if not the optimal moves
   Dec-12-18 J Henseler vs D Klein, 2011 (replies)
scormus: great pun <FSR> well spotted <nalinw>
   Nov-26-18 Carlsen - Caruana World Championship Match (2018) (replies)
scormus: <Severin> Very well put. I completely agree.
   Nov-26-18 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
scormus: yes, I hope it comes back to haunt MC
   Nov-25-18 Aronian vs Leko, 2007 (replies)
scormus: I suppose the clue was in the name. Leko is not renowned for his attacking flair.
   Nov-24-18 Carlsen vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
scormus: <OCF> not very exciting is it, maybe game 12 will be? Last game I didn't want to go for dinner when it was ready. Different today. zzzzzzzzz.....
   Nov-22-18 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
scormus: <tmc> I'm sure against anyone else he's have played Bxb5 stright off.
   Nov-21-18 Carlsen vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
scormus: I still don't know why Fabi didn't play 37 ... Qa4. I think 37 a4 was just Magnus trying to muddly the water, knowing Fabi might be anxious about his K's exposure, and hoping to make him sweat over the a-pawn advancing. Ah I see they've agree draw, sooner or later it would be drawn ...
   Nov-19-18 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
scormus: 37 d6, guessed wrong again. .... Rd2 looks fine for Magnus now. Hmmm, I think 37 d6 was better
   Nov-18-18 Carlsen vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
scormus: <Sally Simpson> Fun puzzle! I can see why a strong player might have more difficulty than a weak player. Oh well, I just have to accept I'm a rubbish player :(
