CopyBlanca
Member since May-23-13 · Last seen Dec-10-19
Retired from competitive chess since 1980's. Highest ranking was just below 2000. Favorite player Capablanca obviously.

CopyBlanca: The pun is on the video game PAC MAN that was one of the first video games and very popular. Pac Man was always being chased by GHOSTS in the video as he maneuvered around the maze.

CopyBlanca: Why even bother talking about Karpov in the same breath as Fischer. Karpov is not even one of the top ten players of all time. Fischer is never rated lower than third by anyone.

CopyBlanca: Greatest ever definitely. This game played when he was 15 or 16.

CopyBlanca: Looking back on my mediocre playing days it was definitely looking at every reasonable move would have made me a much better player.

CopyBlanca: How is this going to be anything else but a draw ?

CopyBlanca: You guys are dreaming. Morphy,Greco,Philidor all these guys would take you to the cleaners. Lets just discuss Morphy for a bit. He was able to play multiple blindfold games at once. None of you dreamers could even begin to play a single blindfold game. When I played tournament ...

CopyBlanca: I should add that this was not Jonathon Penrose , but Roger Penrose the expert on artificial intelligence. In his example all 16 pawns opposed each other and the position was 100 per cent blocked. This position is close to his example.
 
   Jan-28-18 Spassky vs Tal, 1961 (replies)
 
CopyBlanca: Spassky one of the most underrated champions of all time.
 
   Nov-28-16 Carlsen vs Karjakin, 2016 (replies)
 
CopyBlanca: Since the openings take so little time I suggest they give only 1 hour for the first 40 moves. After the first 40 moves the current time allowances are fine.

CopyBlanca: That game by Tal I mentioned was Tal vs Kholmov from 1949. Also impressive. This might be a good time to sound the drum for the greatness of Bobby Fischer. His age 13 Queen sac against Donald Byrne. The Fischer game really inspired me as a youngster in early 1960's.
