Hello people,
My reallife name is Alparslan, I'm 17 years old, I live in Germany, in Bavaria to be exact. I have started to play chess actively in 2007, when I heard that there will be a Chess Club in School again. (It was closed when I was in 5th in 2003)

I'm a very ambitious Chess player, as I've become quite succesful in youth tournaments where I live. I don't have a FIDE Elo yet, my current DWZ (German rating) is 1774. The Chess Club I play for is SC Kitzingen 1905, and I play in our 2nd highest team. (4th is lowest)

I like brave Chess Players, who changed the Chess World with their ideas, and/or played against the zeitgeist of the Chess philosophy of their time. Nimzowitsch, Botvinnik, Tal, Shirov, to name some of them.

Of course I also respect 'the best of the best', like Fischer, Kasparov, Karpov, Ivanchuk but also Morphy, Anderssen, etc.

My favourite game is Kasparov-Topalov (1999 Wijk an Zee), in which Kasparov played a magnificent rook sacrifice and won the game about 15-20 moves later with a Queen vs a Rook up. But thanks to Chessgames I've got to know many other incredible Chess Games, and I hope I will get to observe and analyze many other awsome games.

Gouvaneur: This motif occurs often when checkmating a king. But trapping a queen like this? Incredibly beautiful!
   Nov-10-23 S Kasparov vs T Schulze, 2011 (replies)
Gouvaneur: An incredible game by Geck0tierchen :) (Grüße von DerSiedler!). Some German chess fans will remember that S. Kasparov allegedly accused his opponent (a strong FIDE Master in his own right) of cheating, which was and still is completely absurd. For more information, see: ...
   Sep-22-23 J H Donner vs Panno, 1955 (replies)
Gouvaneur: A horrible game by Donner, not just due to blundering the piece.
   Sep-20-23 Saemisch vs Szabo, 1969
Gouvaneur: Losing on time after 22 moves! Talk about bad time management.

Gouvaneur: Terrible pun and a horrible game. Black was worse for the better part of the game and lost at quite some instances (such as around 49...Re6). I don't understand this selection of games for game of the day for subpar puns.
   Aug-10-23 V Bhat vs H Akopyan, 1999 (replies)
Gouvaneur: I disagree, it's quite the horrible game and a bad pun.
   Jul-13-23 A Kolarov vs Bobotsov, 1968
Gouvaneur: What an exciting game!
   Jun-12-23 C Knapton vs Gunsberg, 1884
Gouvaneur: <goodevans>: 8.Qf3 is sharper, but iirc Black has two good continuations after that, namely 8...Be7 and the more dynamics 8...Rb8, which I fancied. Nakamura beat Caruana in Norway Chess 2023 to win the trophy with 8.Bd3, which is the sort of greedy chess I don't enjoy ...
   Oct-15-19 Art Zhao vs D A Yeager, 2011 (replies)
Gouvaneur: Really? This game literally is of no chess value. White plays like a patzer and swindles a mate. Choosing games as the GOTD just for the sake of a good pun is really unnecessary. There are so many magnificent games played in tournaments daily. Can't be too hard to choose a decent ...
   Jan-07-19 Hort vs O Sarapu, 1974 (replies)
Gouvaneur: Surely, 9...Nd7 looks very risky. 9...Nf6 seems stronger, but 10.f4 asks very uncomfortable questions to Black. For instance 10...fxe4 11.fxe5 dxe5 looks inferior, giving White a strong protected passer on d5. 10...exf4 11.Nxf4 or 11.exf5 Bxf5 12.Nxf4 looks very risky as well with
