Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-07-04  Knight13: Alexander Goloshchapov
Dec-07-04  EnglishOpeningc4: o no not another attacking player
Dec-07-04  Knight13: I don't think he's aattacking player. He's more like a defensive player.
Dec-07-04  EnglishOpeningc4: look at the openings:Ruy,Sicilian, etc
Dec-07-04  Knight13: I don't think openings makes him a attacker. Lots of people play Ruy Lopez and Sicilian.
Dec-08-04  EnglishOpeningc4: Well atacking players usually play: Ruy, or Sicilian as black vs e4; KID or benoni vs. d4; and e4 to start the game Positional players usually play French, Caro-Kann, or Petrov vs e4; Nimzo/Queens, QGD or QGA vs. d4; and d4, c4, or Nf3 to start the game
Jan-25-06  BIDMONFA: Alexander Goloshchapov


Jan-25-11  lost in space: seems, he is a defensive offensive player, like me
Jan-25-11  lost in space: ...and sometimes a offensive defensive player, also like me
Jan-25-11  lost in space: ...but he is not me, guaranteed
Jan-25-11  lost in space: I will now have a look to his games :-)
Jan-25-11  lost in space: the first impression is that he is at least no a defensive defensive positional player
Jan-25-11  lost in space: ...but also no offensive offensive attacking player
Jan-25-11  lost in space: Would need more red wine to say more....
