BLD9802
Member since Jan-09-03 · Last seen May-10-03
I've lived in the USA all my life and have an interest in chess. I'm not a rated or titled player, since I haven't played in any tournament (yet). I have not done any serious analysis of the games of any player because I like to work on my own game when I have the time, but from what I've seen, my favorite players are Capablanca, Alekhine, and Fischer.

BLD9802: Chess and boxing really do have a lot in common: postponements, huge money, controversial outcomes, multiple champions, pre- or post-match outbursts... I am wondering, since the Kramnik-Leko and Ponomariov-Kasparov matches lead up to a unified world championship, does that mean that
 
   Apr-25-03 Fischer vs Panno, 1970 (replies)
 
BLD9802: I recently was reading about this famous game and the ending combination. Chessgames.com may want to add another amusing Fischer-Panno game to the database: Fischer-Panno, Palma de Mallorca Interzonal 1970. It shouldn't be too difficult---I think it only lasted 1 move! :)
 
   Apr-24-03 Kasparov vs N R McDonald, 1986 (replies)
 
BLD9802: This is certainly a noteworthy game. Here, McDonald is a British player playing in Britain. I can picture him and the home crowd celebrating (and Kasparov sizzling) after he snatched one from the World Champion with a surprise tactic.
 
   Apr-24-03 Garry Kasparov (replies)
 
BLD9802: chessamateur: Kramnik, the Braingames World Champion, must play a match against Leko since it had already been agreed that the winner of last year's Dortmund Tournament (Leko) would be his next challenger for the Braingames title. Several months ago, Kasparov, Kramnik, FIDE, et al ...

BLD9802: Bears092: Thank you---this is the game in question. This is probably the ultimate "pawn wedge."
 
   Apr-22-03 Capablanca vs Alekhine, 1927 (replies)
 
BLD9802: Is it true that this match was held totally in private? I wonder how the players reacted after game 34...
 
   Apr-19-03 Morphy vs Duke Karl / Count Isouard, 1858 (replies)
 
BLD9802: I believe that if Morphy, who had a knack for this type of play, did not see to the end, he did see that he would definitely get the better position and development in return for the knight. As a rule, you should never make any sacrifice unless it is forced or you are confident that
 
   Apr-18-03 Fischer vs Spassky, 1992 (replies)
 
BLD9802: Not bad considering that this was essentially the first game that Fischer had played in two decades. It was quite an impressive comeback. I wonder if he and Spassky would consider playing another match in 2012? ;) It really would be a great chess event.
 
   Apr-17-03 Evans Gambit (C51) (replies)
 
BLD9802: As has been mentioned, it can be very effective against unprepared players. Witness the game Fischer vs J Boatner, 1964
 
   Apr-17-03 Marshall vs Capablanca, 1931 (replies)
 
BLD9802: Honza Cervenka: I was correct when I said I would be embarrased after my previous suggestion. Your analysis seems correct.
