My name is Markus Jakobi, I am 52 years old and living in Wiesbaden, which is the capital of Hesse and a town 40 kilometres away from Frankfurt/Main in Germany. I am playing mail chess since I have been 14,5 years old (+15, =33, -18), but from 1982 until 2015 without computer assistance. My mail chess rating is Elo 2015 from 20 evaluations and my favourite chess players are Francois-André Danican Philidor (France), Friedrich Baumbach (Germany), Wolfgang Uhlmann (Germany), Lev Polugaevsky (Russia), Robert James Fischer (USA), Gennady Nesis (Russia), Anatoly Karpov (Russia), Stefan Kindermann (Austria/Germany), Thomas Bohn (Germany), Garry Kasparov (Russia), Stefan Meyer (Germany), Uwe Kettner (Germany), Jörg Schultheis (Germany), Igor Khenkin (Russia/Germany), and Vladimir Kramnik (Russia). I consider Garry Kasparov, Robert James Fischer, Anatoly Karpov, and Francois-André Danican Philidor as the four strongest chess players in history. In my opinion the three most talented chess players in history were/are José Raul Capablanca (Cuba), Paul Morphy (USA), and Viswanathan Anand (India), but not Magnus Carlsen (Norway). Judit Polgar (Hungary), Maia Chiburdanidze (Georgia), Nona Gaprindashvili (Georgia), Vera Menchik (England), Yifan Hou (China), Xie Jun (China), and Aleksandra Goryashkina (Russia) are/were the seven strongest female chess players in history. My favourite openings with white are the Volga-Benko Gambit, English, Modern Defense, King's Indian, Dutch, Chigorin, Queen's Indian, Queen's Gambit Declined, French, Semi-Slav, Modern Benoni, Nimzo Indian, and Ruy Lopez and my favourite openings with black are the French, Volga-Benko Gambit, Sicilian (Najdorf and Chekhover variation), King's Indian, Giuoco Piano, Caro-Kann, King's Indian Attack (Grunfeld Indian and Slav approach), Ruy Lopez, Nimzo Indian, Blackmar-Diemer Gambit, Queen's Indian, Semi-Slav, Van Geet Opening, and Modern Benoni.

   Jul-13-20 Denker vs D MacMurray, 1932 (replies)
Damenlaeuferbauer: After long thinking, the great American chess player and two-times U.S. champion Arnold Denker (his family name means "thinker" in German) finally found the mate in two moves with the rook sacrifice 14.Rd8+!,Nxd8 15.Qe8#. Unfortunately, his most famous game is his loss ...
   Jul-07-20 Huebner vs Adorjan, 1980 (replies)
Damenlaeuferbauer: Although 40 years old, this is a very famous game here in Germany: Before 65.-,Rc5?, the Hungarian GM Andras Adorjan calculated 66.Rxc5? (otherwise white loses his rook) 66.-,bxc5 67.Kg4 (67.Kxh4,c4 68.Kg3/Kg4,c3 -+) 67.-,Ke5 68.Kf3,Kd4 69.Ke2,Kc4 70.Kd2,Kxb5 -+, which ...
   Jun-17-20 C Crouch vs J Ambroz, 1991 (replies)
Damenlaeuferbauer: After long pondering, my old Czech friend Jan finally found the thematic, but nonetheless very nice combination 27.-,Rxf3! 28.Bxf3,Bh2+ 29.Qxh2,Nxf3+ -+. This game shows how to play against the exchange variation of the French defense with the black pieces and that it is ...
   Jun-15-20 B Rabar vs E Paoli, 1953 (replies)
Damenlaeuferbauer: After long thinking, the in Italy very famous chess player Dr Enrico Paoli, who beat the Russian GM Alexander Kotov in Venice 1950 and drew the former Russian WC Boris Spassky in Dortmund 1973 both with the black pieces, finally found the mate in two moves with the knight ...
   Jun-12-20 Nakamura vs Carlsen, 2020 (replies)
Damenlaeuferbauer: This is not the first time, that Magnus Carlsen did not know the opening theory exactly. Instead of 23.-,Nxb2?, he should have played the since 4 years well-known equalizer 23.-,Rac8! [e.g. a) 24.dxe6,Nxb2 25.e7,Rfe8 26.Qd5+,Qxd5 27.Rxd5,Rxc3 28.Rxb2,Rxe7 Draw, B. Bok - E.
   Jun-10-20 Suba vs S Kindermann, 1984 (replies)
Damenlaeuferbauer: After long pondering, the very strong Romanian chess player Mihai Suba, who missed the candidates in the Las Palmas interzonal 1982 by just 0.5 points and had G. Kasparov on the ropes with the black pieces in the 1986 olympiad, finally found the bishop sacrifice ...
   Jun-04-20 Morozevich vs H Hamdouchi, 2001 (replies)
Damenlaeuferbauer: The extraordinary strong Russian GM Alexander Morozevich, one of the most creative chess players of the last 25 years, finally found the queen sacrife 31.Qxb8+!,Nxb8 32.Rxb8+,Bf8, but I also have to concede, that I did not see 33.a6!, but would have played the "more ...
   Jun-03-20 Van Wely vs G Guseinov, 2007 (replies)
Damenlaeuferbauer: After long pondering, the very strong Dutch chess player Loek van Wely finally found the win with the bishop sacrifice 53.Bxh7+!,Kxh7 (53.-,Kf8 54.g6 +-; 53.-,Kh8 54.g6,Nd6/Nd8 55.Nf7+!,Nxf7 56.gxf7,Kxh7 57.f8Q +-) 54,g6+,Kg8/Kh8/Kh6 55.f7(+),Kf8/Kg8 56.Nd7(+) +-. It is ...
   Jun-02-20 Boris Becker vs Kasparov, 2000
Damenlaeuferbauer: I think Garry Kasparov is THE chess player in the history of the royal game, against whom you can afford dubious openings like 1.e4,e5 2.Qh5? at least. Maybe he is/was the BEST opening player of all times. There were top players, e.g. Valery Salov, Joel Lautier, and ...
   Jun-01-20 M Mrva vs Movsesian, 1997 (replies)
Damenlaeuferbauer: After long pondering, the very strong Czech chess player Sergei Movsesian, whom the sometimes very arrogant and narcistic Garry Kasparov defame 1999 as "chess tourist" and 2000 as "lacking chess culture", finally found the mate in 4 moves with 32.-,Rxf1+! 33.Kxf1,Bd3+ ...
