Member since Nov-23-04
The player i respect the most are the ones who went or currently go against the norms of chess. Tal for his sacrificial style if it was sound or not it was played. Bronstien for pioneering my favorite opening the kings indian. Morozevich for keeping the big guys in check on there opening theory by bringing back old lines. Larsen for his originality at the highest leves of chess. Polugavsky for his fun variations of the sicilian which he seemed to play almost effortlessly. I love to go over the games of blatny for his originality some one who keeps people in check with sidelines that are mocked. Basman is in that category along with clyde Nakamura. They make chess seem interesting still along with IM adrien florean who plays the saintgeorge against som very tough players and hes a michigander so yeah props to him. My rating is finally on the rise and i plan on doing my best to represent my idols at the michigan open this year in the booster section. Thats u1400. If all goes right my Owens will score a few points using my imagination instead of tons of theory. Openings i love to play for fun and serious play are the Owens,Kings Indian,French,Najdorf, Queens Gambit and Catalan.

Basqueknight: Ive recently taken up the Caro-Kann and after about of month of playing it i like this line best. Sure the early g3 causes black to rethink his plan but it doesnt make blacks opening bad its just more posistional than it was before. I think the people who say sure it works on ...

Basqueknight: Wow i like seeing things that people dont play very often anymore like the Old Steinitz Defence. I play this line becasue at my level most players have forgottenabout it. Its a solid system with not a whole lot of winning chances and if you go to a few websites you see it loses
