I live in Chennai, India.
I'm not a rated player but have a great interest in chess and have reasonable knowledge of play. I would like to start playing in tournaments when I get more free time. I cannot strictly choose a favorite player as I love several players for their cool style. I'll always love Morphy, Capablanca, Fischer and Carlsen for their solid and uncompromising style; Alekhine, Aronian for their creativity on the board; Botvinnik, Karpov, Kasparov, Anand, Karjakin and Caruana for their chess vision; Tal for his 'Tal'ish sacrifices; Meitner for the immortal draw.

My favorite chess game is the immortal draw.

GauraNitai: <chessvcr>: You can download the World Chess Championship 2014 app from Play Store.

GauraNitai: What kind of a freak game is this? I think even an under 1000 player would play Nxe5 or Rxe5 on move 23. And I honestly don't know what 24. Nd4 was trying to achieve. I can't believe this is the man we took 33 moves to oust using the strongest engines at command. Apparently all ...

GauraNitai: Rf1 Qh4 loses very beautifully. It's followed by Rh1+ Kg3 Qe1+. Now Rf2 is forced to stop the loss of the queen. Then Rf1 threatens to win the rook and forces Kf3. Now a simple Qe4+ forces Kg3 again, and now Qe3+ simply wins because Kh2 means loss of the rook; Re3 appears ...

GauraNitai: <Sihlous>: I don't think this would be very hard to see for the top grandmasters. Most grandmasters will see it given a few minutes. It is based on theory, so calculations are just for a few moves. I missed the stunning Nd3!! after f4 Rf5.

GauraNitai: <Jason Frost>: 32...f5 is a joke. 32...f6 offers a much better defence as it prevents an immediate Ng5. Then 33.Nxf6+ Kf7 34.Ng5+ Ke7 35.Bf8+ followed by 36.Ne6 seals black's fate, but is a stretch compared to 32...f5 where Ng5 leaves Black instantly helpless.

GauraNitai: <kwid>: Actually, you just mentioned 7 out of the 66 moves played. Which kind of makes it look like the remaining 59 moves were Houdini moves, which translates to roughly 90%. Just saying :D It would actually be nice to look back at all the moves played and see how many of ...

GauraNitai: How does e5 save the queen? He still can't capture either pawn threatening the white queen.
