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)

stanleys: Very sad news: GM Gavrikov has died today.May he rest in peace! (published by David Llada on Twitter) -
   Dec-25-15 Jakovenko vs A Ipatov, 2015 (replies)
stanleys: What happens after 6...Qh4? White's position seems to be quite bad
   Dec-25-15 Chandler vs Ivanchuk, 1990 (replies)
stanleys: Ivanchuk's 22...Rc7 seems to be an act of despair. OK I suppose the bishop could not be taken,because a mate will follow on the a-line, but why not 22...Qe7?. After let's say 23.exf6 Qxf6 24.Ne5 Rg7 black could put some resistance
   Sep-10-14 Capablanca vs R Kofman, 1935 (replies)
stanleys: A game from this simultaneous in which Capablanca played poorly: Capablanca - Kuryishkin 1.c4 Nf6 2.g3 c6 3.Bg2 d5 4.Qc2 e5 5.b3 Be6 6.Bb2 Bd6 7.Nf3 Nbd7 8.0-0 0-0 9.h3 Nh5 10.d4 e4 11.Ne5 f6 12.Ng4 f5 13.Ne5 f4 14.g4 Bxe5 15.dxe5 f3 16.exf3 exf3 17.gxh5 Qg5 0:1

stanleys: Gunina's way of preparation for the games (she did it everyday) - (pics 2-5)
   Mar-05-14 I Salgado Lopez vs A Riazantsev, 2014 (replies)
stanleys: The natural looking move 31.Nxd7 loses instantly. Even a strong GM could blunder because of careless play in a simple position
   Feb-06-14 Tradewise Gibraltar (2014) (replies)
stanleys: Congratulations to Ivan Cheparinov for winning Gibraltar, as well to Vitiugov and Ivanchuk for fighting to the last minute. It was really an exciting tiebreak to watch!
   Jan-29-14 Gyula Sax (replies)
stanleys: Sad news :( RIP GM Sax
   Jan-17-14 Kosteniuk vs Karpov, 2002
stanleys: <zugzwangliker:> Yes I think it's Karpov invention. Playing ...a6 is normally useful in this line, and as you said 5.g4 is not the best idea because of the simple 5...Bd7, followed by ...e6 - white has just weakened his pawn structure
