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)

   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!

stanleys: Sad news :( RIP GM Sax
 
   Jan-20-14 Alexander Vladimirovich Zakharov
 
stanleys: This veteran won against Korobov two days ago at the "Dvorkovich Memorial" - http://chess-results.com/tnr120577....
 
   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
 
   Jan-13-14 Nakamura vs Gelfand, 2014 (replies)
 
stanleys: This tactical shot could easily be missed during a game - not so obvious.
 
   Jan-12-14 R Wojtaszek vs D Reinderman, 2014 (replies)
 
stanleys: <parisattack> 3.a3 is a normal move in this line, preventing the ideas with ...Bb4
 
   Jan-11-14 Vugar Gashimov (replies)
 
stanleys: Real tragedy :((( Rest in Peace Vugar.
