A keen chessplayer from Varna,Bulgaria.Had some good results in national junior championships,but now playing just for fun. My favorite player...If I have to give one name,this is Tigran V.Petrosian.Yes he is not so popular,but it's worth studying his games,you'll appreciate his great positional understanding and intuition ,his technique and his ability to explain what's going on on the board in several simple words. In fact there are many other players,that I would also call "favorite".I could divide them in two groups:"elegant positional players":besides Petrosian i would put there Rubinstein,Capablanca and Smyslov and ""dynamic,creative players":Keres,Bronstein,Simagin,Nezmetdinov,Stein(Tal- is rather particular one)

   Dec-12-17 Keres vs G Geshev, 1936
stanleys: A pic from this game -
   Nov-06-17 R Mamedov vs D Dubov, 2017
stanleys: Brilliant game by Mamedov in the most important team match. Still cannot understand Dubov's decision to give his bishop for nothing with 23...Rd8 without being forced.Someone has indicated that 23...e5 is better than the text as well, allowing the king and the rook to enter in play
   Jul-18-17 Marijan Georgiev Petrov
stanleys: Bulgarian champion in 2017 as well
   Feb-20-17 V Gunina vs A Bachmann, 2016
stanleys: Very nice tactical battle starting from 37...Nd4!. Think that everything was forced, both sides finding best moves, black remaining a pawn up, but in a drawn rook ending.

stanleys: It is not sure that the above-mentionned three Moscovite masters have played in Sverdlovsk 1942.

   Oct-14-16 Atanas Stefanov Kolarov
stanleys: Sad news: IM Kolarov died on 22.09.2016. RIP He was a part of the Bulgarian team, that took third place at the Olympic Games in Lugano, 1968.

   Dec-25-15 Jakovenko vs A Ipatov, 2015 (replies)
stanleys: What happens after 6...Qh4? White's position seems to be quite bad
